The Hockey Show - Episode Eighty-Nine

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is pre-empting all normal programming tonight for our hour as we are welcoming a special guest to the studio. Normally, we'd run down a few Survivor: NHL Playoffs eliminations and chat all sorts of stuff from the hockey world, but we're proud and honoured to have one of the NHL's finest men to call Winnipeg home visit our humble studio.

Tonight, we welcome the "baby-faced assassin", Mr. Ted Irvine, to the show! Mr. Irvine still lives in the Winnipeg area, and we're going to pick his brain on his hockey career, his achievements, his trades, and a pile of other stuff. This is a guy who won three championships in the former Central Professional Hockey League, went to a Stanley Cup Final with the New York Rangers, and has played across the continent. Mr. Irvine is a treasure trove of hockey history, and tonight we're going to dig out all the stories and bits of information on the old-time hockey that he played when players didn't wear helmets and had to be tough to survive! Of course, he's not going to escape one new segment of the show, though.

We're going to give Mr. Irvine a chance to weigh in on 3 Rounds Deep tonight as Beans and I ponder which coach was the best coach of all-time? There have been a ton of legendary coaches in the NHL who have worked wonders with various teams. Scotty Bowman, Toe Blake, Punch Imlach, and many others have been heralded - and in some cases, vilified - for the jobs they have done behind the benches. Get your thinking caps on as Beans, myself, and Mr. Irvine choose the top-three coaches in our views who have worked in hockey!

If you wanna be a part of 3 Rounds Deep tonight, give us a call during the segment at 204-269-8636 (269-UMFM) and we'll put you on the air! Same rules as always as we can't repeat picks made by others and neither can you, so it will get a little tougher as people start participating. We'll start it off, then open up the phone lines and hit Twitter for everyone else to participate.

Going 3 ROUNDS DEEP tonight: best coach of all-time! You know what to do!

We've got a busy show tonight with Mr. Irvine on, so we'll only be taking calls during the 3 Rounds Deep segment! Tune us in at 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region, or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! We'll be available via phone for the 3 Rounds Deep segment at (204) 269-8636 (269-UMFM), so give us a call and play 3 Rounds Deep! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us up at @TeebzHBIC on the Twitter machine. You can post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show. You should "Like" that. In short, there are lots of ways to get a hold of us!

We're live on the air tonight between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT, so give us a listen and hear Mr. Irvine's achievements in the game of hockey!
