  1. Doug,

    Well done hosting the show by yourself. It’s always difficult talking for an hour and a half (Hopefully the horns between periods give you guys a break and it’s just good editing) but you pulled it off and it was a great show as usual. Agreed with you about your Power Play. NHL Network, compared to the other individual sport networks is an embarrassment.

  2. Guys, I am fairly new to the show so you may have gotten this email before, but looking closely at the photo you guys use on the Puck Podcast homepage it occurs to me that Eddie had committed a major hockey faux pas. It is a time honored tradition in the NHL that no player that has never won the Stanley Cup should touch the Stanley Cup. I believe there is (or should be) some sort of by-law, observed by all true fans, that anyone whose team has never won the Cup should touch the Stanley Cup either. Doug is safe, but it seems, judging from the jersey he’s wearing, that that picture was taken even before the Ducks had won it all. I suppose Doug gets a pass, but may I suggest that, in order to show proper respect, you find a way to reshoot the photo with Eddie observing a respectful distance, or at least acknowledge that, as a Kings fan he should keep his mitts off the Holy Grail until his team actually hoists it at the end of the season.

    I have a great photo of me standing next to the Cup with my then two year old son touching it, but alas, we’re Bruins fans and even though it’s been 38 bleeping years! we are safe.

  3. Higgs,
    That picture was taken in the summer of 2007 after the Ducks had won their first Cup. (I say first because they will win more.) So, I am safe and did not jinx the Ducks in any way. In fact, I was simply helping them celebrate it! Eddie, on the other hand, by wearing a Kings jersey and touching the Cup directly has assured his favorite team that they will never win the Cup and he is to blame.

    Thanks for listening to the show and for the feedback!


  4. Higgs,
    That “rule” only applies to players. Since I have never and will never play for my Kings I have and will continue to touch the greatest trophy in all of sports every chance I get.
