Two ScuttlePuck Episodes in 1 week!


ScuttlepuckLogo_sml

In Episode 22, we discuss Stephane Quintal’s first real tests of the season as head of the NHL Department of Player Safety as he doles out several suspensions.

We also discuss how being a fan is an odd experience.  The Edmonton Oilers lose a couple, but how are they playing? Is there reason for optimism?  Taylor Hall got injured – what does this mean for the Oil?

With Connor McDavid of the Erie Otters tearing up the OHL, we ask how good can he be?  Can he be better than Sidney Crosby? Mario Lemieux? Wayne Gretzky? Is it even possible for someone to dominate the game the way Gretzky and Lemieux did?

Is Jakob Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers the real deal?

Has James Reimer taken the number one role for the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Episode 23 of the ScuttlePuck NHL podcast is a special edition preview of the Oilers and Flyers game with special guest Thomas Krulikowski (@tommykru06) of the whyhockey periodical podcast.

We discuss the recent suspensions in the NHL to Brad Ference of the Edmonton Oilers.  Was this payback for previous Kassian transgressions?  Dave Leggio, AHL netminder figures out a clever trick to avoid a 2 on 0 and we talk all about it.

The National Hockey League season has been full of surprises and we discuss what teams are doing well, which ones are likely to improve and who will drop off.

Most importantly, we preview the game and discuss the effect of the Taylor Hall injury, the play of Jakob Voracek and ask the question, should the Flyers tank?

ScuttlePuck Episode 20: PK Subban lights it up for Habs. Milan Lucic salutes Habs fans as only he can. Oilers mercifully send Darnell Nurse down. Sidney Crosby is really good.

In this episode Mike and Pete discuss the first full week of hockey in the National Hockey League.  Despite a 5-1 start, Pete isn’t entirely happy with the play of the Montreal Canadiens and asks that the Habs play a complete game.  He is quite pleased with PK Subban’s play, and why not – the guy is amazing! We also give our thoughts on Milan Lucic just being Milan Lucic, which is fun.  Mike isn’t ready to give up on the Oilers, and gives his thoughts on what needs to change – is it the coach?

John Scott destroyed Mikhail Grabovski of the Islanders this week and the guys discuss whether it was a clean hit or a suspendable offense.

Rick Nash is off to a good start but is it sustainable?

Sidney Crosby is good and the guys get into what is so special about him.

All this and we announce some plans to have our first listener join us on the show.

All this and much more.
