The Hockey Show - Episode 173

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, returns to the airwaves tonight after neither Beans nor myself won the Powerball last night. It's a little depressing, but that's how the puck bounces sometimes. Besides, we're here to discuss all hockey topics, and there are a number of them that we'll toss around from the world of puck. It should be noted, however, that we haven't done a giveaway in some time on the ol' show, so I'm going to work in a giveaway that can be won by answering an obscure trivia question. What will that giveaway be? You'll have to tune in to find out!

It appears that one player will set the bar for the next set of contract negotiations. Rumours out of the NHL circles have the Los Angeles Kings and Anze Kopitar close to an eight-year, $80 million contract that will put him among the NHL's richest for the better part of a decade. Is Kopitar worth that kind of cash? What is Stamkos worth if Kopitar does get that money? How about Byfuglien and Ladd? Beans and I will discuss all these scenarios tonight as we put the old accounting caps on. We'll also discuss Pacific All-Star team captain John Scott sent down to the AHL where he'll suit up for the Springfield Falcons, a Russian amateur game that saw 790(!) penalty minutes handed out in one period(!), and we'll look at the terrible weekend in Edmonton for the Bisons women's hockey team compared to the incredible weekend the Bisons men's team had at home.

The phones are wide-open once tonight, so call in, answer a trivia question, get a prize, and chat some hockey with us at (204) 269-8636 (UMFM)! Make sure you tune your radio dial in the Winnipeg region to 101.5 on your FM dial or listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage as well! Tweet me anytime with questions you may by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. You can also 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. Lots of hockey stories to discuss tonight on The Hockey Show tonight only on 101.5 UMFM!
