The Hockey Show - Episode Ninety-Five

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, has a ton of material to cover on tonight's show. Between the NHL Entry Draft and free agency, the NHL has a ton of stories flying out of it. How crazy is it to think that over half-a-billion dollars was thrown around in the last three days? Some contracts were smart, some were outrageous, and the rest made up the difference. Needless to say, Beans and I will be chatting about some of the craziness that has gone on in the NHL in the last few days.

We're also going to take a bit of a deeper look at the CIS schedule for the Manitoba Bisons for both the men's and women's teams, and we'll probe into the University of Ottawa Gee Gees' scandal and resulting suspension of its hockey program. This is one of those black eyes that really raises questions regarding who is watching over these students and their welfare as they play sports in university. Not unlike some of the scandals in the NCAA, this one leaves a lot of questions unanswered and the University of Ottawa decided to purge the hockey program by suspending the program for the 2014-15 season. There are a lot of questions, and Beans and I will try to answer some.

Tonight's 3 Rounds Deep segment will give Beans and I a chance to have some fun. With the NHL Entry Draft over and free agency underway, there's a lot of player movement happening right now. One of the crazier times in the NHL is when there is an expansion draft, so Beans and I will look at the best players to start a franchise around. If you had the opportunity, name the forward, the defenceman, and the goaltender that you'd start an NHL team around if there were no restrictions and no salary cap!

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. If you want to toss some names in electronically, the Twitter link is below where you can go 3 Rounds Deep!
