The Hockey Show - Episode 102

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns tonight with a fairly normal show as it's just Beans and I chatting hockey. However, we have a pile of stuff to go through after having guests on for the last couple of weeks. You'll probably enjoy the segment later in the show as we also have a couple of announcements to make about our show and a friend of the show!

The biggest story to come out of hockey this week is the changes to the NHL Entry Draft. Beans and I will discuss how this affects teams, what it means for the perennially bad, how it benefits the successful, and why the NHL should look at other options. We'll also discuss the comments made by Evander Kane to the Team1040 radio on Wednesday night about his disappointment in not appearing in the playoffs thus far in his career, the Leafs and Oilers hiring bloggers to improve their hockey, how much stock we put into advanced statistics like Corsi and Fenwick, the suspension of the CHL's Denver Cutthroats for the upcoming season, and the sale of the New York Islanders. In other words, it's a busy show!

Tonight on 3 Rounds Deep, we look back at the best players drafted by the New York Islanders since Charles Wang bought into the Islanders in 2000. His fourteen years of owning the Islanders saw some great players drafted by the Isles with the number of times they missed the playoffs, and Beans and I will choose the best players who were picked by his staff during his time as the owner of the Islanders. Honestly, there haven't been a lot of players who have stood out, but we should be able to come up with six.

Same rules apply as always for tonight's 3 Rounds Deep as we can't repeat picks made by the others, so we'll see how this plays out. Call us at (204) 269-8636, and we'll hit Twitter and Facebook for everyone else to participate. If you want to toss some names in electronically, the Twitter and Facebook links are below where you can go 3 Rounds Deep!
