The Hockey Show - Episode 259

The Hockey Show begins Season Six next week! Holy cow! We actually made it through five years of doing a weekly talk show all about hockey without any major incidents or international crises caused! Somehow, we've established a fairly nice foothold in the radio landscape with our crazy banter and lively debates, but we really have no one but you, listeners and readers, to thank for making us a part of your weekly hockey updates. While we'll never be TSN - does anyone really want to be TSN radio in this city? - we do try to give better coverage of all the leagues than the big guys do, and we hope you appreciate the coverage and the guests we bring into your life each and every week! Thanks for being along with us for this crazy ride!

Tonight, Beans and I will address the elephant in the room as the Winnipeg Jets announced that both GM Kevin Cheveldayoff and head coach Paul Maurice were given extensions on their contracts despite only visiting the Stanley Cup Playoffs once. We'll debate the merits of these extensions, and see where we end up. On top of that, we'll discuss updates on a few Jets players health-wise, free agent signings and professional tryouts around the league, the CWHL announcing they'll pay players this season, some Manitoba Bisons news, some NCAA news, the dangers of the warning line in hockey, and we have a few shout-outs to do before the night is over!

So now you might be asking can you listen to the show, right? We suggest that you download the UMFM app on your phone or tablet. It's the easiest and most convenient way to listen to any of UMFM's great shows any time of the day, so go get it!

Tonight, Teebz and Beans discuss contract extensions, injuries from contact, tryouts for contracts, why the warning line causes more contact, paid contracts, who to contact about the Bisons, and more only on The Hockey Show found on 101.5 UMFM and on the UMFM app!
