The Hockey Show - Episode 331

The Hockey Show, is back to its usual hijinks tonight as we dive into the hockey world. Beans and I have a number of things to discuss from the hockey spectrum as we try to speculate on who of the old boys' club that the Oilers are running will take over as GM after Peter Chiarelli was dismissed. There are some interesting names out there - Jari Kurri has done good work with Jokerit as their GM, Esa Tikkanen is out there somewhere, and there must be demand for Reijo Ruotsalainen to make a return, right? - but outside of the Finns mentioned, is there anyone who is willing to don the hazmat suit and wander into that radioactive environment?

As stated above, Beans and I will look at a handful of moves that Peter Chiarelli made that likely began to cement his fate as the Oilers sent him to the unemployment line. We'll discuss the other firing that happened on the same day as the University of Lethbridge dismissed women's hockey coach Michelle Janus and the entire situation surrounding her and the school. We'll talk about the Bisons men's and women's hockey teams and what they're up to this weekend, we're on the road for next week's show, and we'll discuss the worst secret in Winnipeg and how that may affect everything next season. It should be a show with lots of info, so make sure you get to a radio or internet-enabled device at 5:30pm CT!

You might be wondering where the blurb about the UMFM app has gone. I'm going on record to say you can still use it, but the new UMFM website will fill the needs of our listeners because the new online streaming player is pretty awesome. If you're using an Apple device, the player doesn't seem to like Safari, but we highly recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store. The UMFM app will currently work for you, but there's some work being done to realign it with UMFM's new website, so it may go silent soon. If it does, TuneIn. It's a solid app.

I'm changing up the social media portion as well. I'm losing faith in Facebook, so that option will slowly be allowed to drift off into the horizon. However, the other options still work! Email all show questions and comments to! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! We're here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz and Beans discuss Chiarelli and the Oilers parting ways, Janus and the Pronhorns parting ways, the Bisons' upcoming weekend, next week's roadtrip, the latest news on the newest team in the Manitoba capital and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
