The Hockey Show - Episode Seventy-Seven

The Hockey Show is all about wrapping up the Olympics tonight, and we'll feature two guests as we close down our look on the hockey's biggest tournament and look forward to the rest of the NHL season, the CIS championships, and some other hockey notes. We were going to have an Olympic roundtable tonight with a number of panelists, but the panel dissolved as people confirmed scheduling. I'll talk a little about that tonight as we shout-out to those who had to be elsewhere.

Amongst the topics we shall discuss tonight:
  • Russia's failure to make it to the semi-finals.
  • The surprising Finns and their game against Team USA.
  • Team USA's lackluster performance in the bronze-medal game.
  • Sweden's performance in earning the silver medal.
  • Nicklas Backstrom's use of a banned substance, and why he should or should not get a medal for his efforts.
  • Canada's thrilling victories over the US and Sweden.
  • Do we see NHLers in South Korea?
  • CIS information as the Bisons men's hockey team plays against the Calgary Dinos this weekend with a Canada West Final berth on the line.
  • Sean Avery is Dancing With The Stars' newest hopeful. We'll laugh at the thought of this.
  • Teebz hates trade deadline speculation.
  • Anything else that comes up!
Joining us on the program tonight will be CIS/MJHL official Jeremie Gauvin and, when she becomes available, CIS player-turned-broadcaster Isabelle Germain! All of the hockey chatter goes down tonight at 5:30pm CT on 101.5 UMFM, so tune in! We'll be watching the ol' Twitter feed as well, so feel free to tweet your thoughts on anything hockey-related! See you tonight!
