  1. Agree with you guys on the logo. It is not as terrible as first thought but its not great. It will be interesting to see how much merch. is actually sold and whether the logo comes back or goes the way of the fisherman.

  2. I gotta tell ya. You guys are definitly hockey savvy and say some interesting things…BUT, its boring. I can get the same information you discuss at about 500 different media outlets. Take a different angle with this stuff, make it unique. Also, don’t be afraid of negative comments, they add depth to your show. thanks

  3. A few things…

    The new Sabres Logo is horrible. HORRIBLE. The jerseys themselves are passable though.

    The DiPietro move is silly. Maybe not as hideously ugly as people made it out to be when it was announced, but still real damn silly.

    And, I love your show. I just found it last night. I listened to every episode back to back while I was at work today. It’s so nice to be able to get hockey news and opinion that actually MAKES SENSE and goes deeper than just a couple goal highlights on Sports Center.

    Shameless plug, check out my Pens blog. Clearly we’re gonna win the cup this year, so you might as well start reading up now. (No, I’m not really out of it enough to believe we can even sniff the cup this year)

  4. Let’s get your great podcast spiced up a bit:

    – Tie Domi’s wife filing for divorce? Liberal MPs and ex-Leafs? What gives?

    – Owen Nolan resurrected at 33 and the hockey press gives his settlement with the Leafs a pass? Where did they bury the Leafs’ doctors, in an Alberta oil field? Get investigatin!

    – Off-season hockey news dominated by Crosby (again) and Malkin: who really cares about the Penguins? Where’s the inside scoop on mafia dominance of the Russian elite league?

    Make it juicy and ugly, otherwise hockey will stay behind poker and golf in the US market. Thanks.

  5. More exciting news, let’s get crackin’:

    – Where does Chris Pronger’s wife shop, now that she’s got $6.25 million and a real city to spend it in?

    – Where is Winnipeg, really? Is it just a state of mind?

    – Mark Bell moonlights as a driving instructor at a San Jose high school and nobody notices?

    Good luck!

  6. I gotto tell you guys that i loved the show from the moment i heard it. Lately though (Since Fox started advertising you) it has gotten very straight forward and a bit lame, what gives? What happened to the duesh bags? Come on guys you got us hooked and its time to deliver again!

  7. To all of you fans that love the edge we had in the first few shows – fear not, it shall return. However, it will take some games that matter to get fired up about. There’s only so much venom we can muster about stuff like Ken Hitchcock’s new contract.

    Thanks for all the comments – and to Eddie Torres, I love the line about Winnipeg!

    This weeks show will be one day late thanks to Doug going on vacation but it will be posted within a few hours.
