  1. Great show as usual.

    Here’s a topic I touched on in my own little blog:

    The Blues. They’ve made some big time additions, where do you see them ending up in the league? I think even with the big additions, they’ll have a hard time coming back. Could you share your thoughts on the team and it’s future? Possible rookies for them making an impact, etc?

    Thanks guys. And again, awesome, awesome PodCast. It’s weird, I’m checking NHL news all day long, almost literally, and still love listening to the show and hearing every single thing you guys have to say. I hope you guys keep this coming for a very long time.

  2. I caught up with you guys via a link from a Blackhawk’s message board. I’m impressed with your show, and if listening to two in a row makes me a regular, then here I am.

    A good, well-rounded look at the game. Thanks for your efforts, and good luck the rest of the way.

  3. 1st time listener..really enjoyed the show…

    Life long Pens fan…The Malkin situation is pretty wild. It would be great to see him on the ice opening night, but until we see some solid signs that he has actually taken the steps to join the Penguins, well, we better just take this one day at a time.

    Once this is resolved, it will make a great read to find out who knew what when, how was all this orchestrated, etc.

    Keep up the good work!

  4. I saw your post on LetGoPens.com… I have been listening to your show since you started. Good job. You are far more professional than the other weekly hockey podcast that I listen to in the off season.

    Last week the only thing that I disagreed with was your comments on Detroit and Hasek but that is just because this season could become, “America’s Funnies Hip Fractures on Ice” for that team. They needed someone younger.

    Anyways, I have not listened to the latest show but I will today. Keep up the good work.

  5. I have a bit of a bone to pick with your broadcast. In the third period you ask whether people are hockey fans or fans of teams, and suggest that any hockey fan must watch versus and NBC’s games.

    Let me turn the tables. For us viewers, what does the NHL do for us? Speaking only personally, my belief is that the NHL must merit my support before I will give it. Wht time and money I have to devote to leisure activities is not like speculation investment. I will start as a fan of some facet of something – say being a Browns fan instead of generally an NFL fan – and as I am exposed to more about the product, will become more generally supportive if it merits my support.

    Conversely, if the product diminishes in quality, my interest and support will dwindle back to, in my example, being just a Browns fan should the NFL’s product take a turn for the worse.

    I am not a hockey fan. I was once, but now I am not. I root for one team (maybe two because of where I now live). The tired doublespeak the NHL management tries to shove down my throat insults my intelligence.

    Every day and in every way things are getting better and better? Prove it. Then maybe I might become a hockey fan again. Until then, I wouldn’t watch a Versus show even if it HAD my team playing.

  6. Branden –
    That’s a fair comment, and we will address that on the show this coming week. Thanks for the feedback, and thanks to all of you that have listened and taken the time to post your comments as well.
