The Rink Episode 68: Why No Jagr?

For episode 68, you would think the Jaromir Jagr would come up once, but he wasn’t the story when it came to the Flyers.  James O’Brien and I talk about Pronger and the impact his injury may have on visors, as well as what is going on in this crazy league, where the Stars are on top, the Leafs are a playoff team, and one of the best goalies in the league just isn’t good enough for some people.

The Rink Episode 64 Part 2: Classic All Over

It’s part two of my talk with Ryan Classic, where we continue our goalie discussion, and talk about Teemu Selanne, the retirement of Chris Chelios and that fine chili he makes, and Ron Tugnutt. Yes, really.

The Rink Episode 49: A New Hope?

This week on The Rink, everything is coming up bananacakes, as both Tom and I are having stellar starts to the season. But the Avs and Sabres aren’t the only things on our minds. Tom and I talk about the bottom end of the spectrum, which includes the Leafs, Red Wings, and Canucks, and we even delve into the dreaded trap. Enjoy.

The Rink Episode 34

If the Playoffs aren’t going the way Tom and I want, do we still have to watch them? The answer is yes, but we can still complain about them.  And news comes in fast and furious (finally) about the Coyotes situation.  Tom and I have all the updates as the dogs see there day in court.

The Rink Episode 33

One series of round 2 wraps up while Tom and I record the podcast. the Capitals force game 7, and there is still a lot more to talk about.  The Bruins take the beating while winning. there is other talk about movement, and we get in a lightning round, at least, as much of one as Tom and I do.

The Rink Episode 26

This week, Alex Ovechkin nets his 50th, with a little something extra, the Habs may be for sale, and the hometown discount only counts for people without agents.  Plus the last few playoff slots are up for grabs.  Who wants one? Anyone?
