The Hockey Show - Episode Ninety

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with our regularly-scheduled programming! If you missed last week's show, go download it and listen in as Teebz sat down with NY Ranger great Ted Irvine for an hour-long interview about his career, his life, and the various people who made it memorable. Of course, we pre-empted the Survivor: NHL Playoffs interviews, 3 Rounds Deep, and a host of other stuff, so we'll get back on-track tonight as we kick it up a notch!

Tonight, we'll get caught up on the Round Two eliminations for those participating in the Survivor: NHL Playoffs contest. We'll try to get the four people whose teams were sent packing on the show to discuss their teams' failures in advancing. Pittsburgh, Boston, Anaheim, and Minnesota were all voted off the island, so we'll get in touch with those entrants so they can speak to their demises.

Alongside that, we'll have conversation on a number of topics including the current series in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, the RE/MAX Cup, Canada's failure to medal at the IIHF World Championships once again, why this tournament means so little in North America, the Edmonton Oil Kings winning the Memorial Cup, Barry Trotz and Brian MacLellan being hired in Washington to right a sinking ship there, Jim Benning being hired in Vancouver as the GM, the idiotic battery charge against Corey Crawford, the success of the IceCaps in the Calder Cup Playoffs, and more!

Since we missed it last week due to Mr. Irvine's excellent interview, 3 Rounds Deep tonight will let 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 and I 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.
