  1. Just started listening to the show this week and realized a very good thing. This is the last week this season we have to hear Mike Lange and his “lang-isms” Thank god for that.

  2. I believe you said on the May 15th podcast that the Boston Bruins had the infamous “too many men on the ice” penalty in the Stanley Cup finals. Actually that was in Game 7 of the semi-finals. Also the clip you see on “Coach’s Corner” with Don Cherry gesturing the Montreal fans with his arms is not in reaction to the penalty as many think. That happened earlier in the game.

    Glad to hear Doug was NOT on a camping trip with his parents.

  3. Who’s the guy on Montreal radio that just yells “YES!” after every goal? Man, show a tiny bit of objectiveness and be a professional.

  4. Doug- You said that you worked on “The Last Word” or whatever with Jim Rome and were expressly forbidden to talk about hockey? How did Rome take that? I first started listening to Rome on the radio BECAUSE he was, as he put it, “a pimp for the puck.” I stopped when he basically “sold out” and the hockey talk ceased(although I hate that term, I cannot think of one better suited, though it isn’t perfect). I know that he did not discuss it as much on tv as those shows had different producers and “masters” than the radio program. Interested to know if you had any insight as to what happened to his passion for it?

  5. Kris – Jim’s passion for hockey never went anywhere but he is, at the end of the day, an employee and he does what his bosses tell him to do. When they say “no hockey” he can argue against it but at the end of the day that means there will be no hockey on his show and there’s nothing he can do about it except go out there and talk about the NFL, NBA, MLB and college sports.

  6. Gotcha. Thanks for the info. Was just wondering how much of it was him and how much of it was his bosses. It felt like he let it go away on the radio show, which I thought he had some more control over. Oh well…

  7. Great show as always guys! And I have to agree- any time there is a Chevy Chase movie reference, its gotta be a good episode, despite what Eddie may have to say about it.

    Just thought I would drop a line, not to sell myself to everyone on here, to say that I wrote something about what Doug said about the new disciplinary system that he wants in place. I went with his idea (and quoted him), and expanded on it. I kind of want to get feedback on any ideas you all may have about how the NHL can improve on the current system, and if “the clown” Colin Campbell deserves to be unemployed.

  8. Great show as always guys. However, as a Brit, trying to follow hockey is quite a challenge and one of the things I like to do is improve my knowledge of hockey. I do rely on the TV and the internet to inform me as to what is legal and illegal.

    With Colin Campbell’s decisions, I have decided that it is actually impossible to make an informed decision as two hits which seem very similar have wildly differing punishments.

    Thank you for offering me a reason why he makes baffling decisions. Simply, that he is biased towards his old chums in the hockey world. It makes all the sense in the world and things now become clear.

    I think it’s a great idea. In Formula 1, there is an ex-driver on the panel of stewards to inform them of a driver’s perspective on any committed infractions. It helps balance things out and illustrates that a driver may not have meant to do the thing he did, or vice versa.

    A board of impartial members with clear cut guidelines and some continuity of punishment would go a long way to resolving the NHL disciplinary issues that Colin Campbell has caused.
