The Hockey Show - Episode 106

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is a little late with this preview today as I've been trying to lock down a guest we were supposed to have on the show tonight. Unfortunately, it appears that fell through, so we'll be going back to chatting about hockey and all the stories surrounding it rather than learning about someone who we thought would be a great person to meet. We'll continue to work with this individual to see if we can have him on for a future episode, but we'll do our hockey thing this week instead.

We'll dive into looking at the ESPN report published today that ranks all the teams of the four professional sports leagues over a number of criteria. It's an interesting list because of the criteria used. For example, one of the categories is "Bang for the Buck" which is defined as "Wins in the past year, per fan dollars". We'll bounce through the list as we look at specific teams and discuss why they placed where they did. Surprisingly, there were a lot of hockey teams in the top-fifteen teams, and it surprised me that the American public in these major cities seem to like hockey more than other sports. Kudos to those franchises, and we'll talk about that tonight.

We'll also spend some time talking about the Ryan Johansen situation in Columbus, Kevin Cheveldayoff's interview with TSN's Bob McKenzie and what we saw in that, the Winnipeg Jets holding their first annual Fan Fest at MTS Centre on Saturday, September 20, and much more. We're also going to waive the 3 Rounds Deep segment tonight since we were preparing for an interview. Or maybe we'll toss it in. The only way you'll know is by listening!

We're on the air at 5:30pm so tune in for all the action! We're on 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! We'll be available via phone at (204) 269-8636 (269-UMFM), so give us a call to share your thoughts on any of the topics we cover! You can tweet us anytime you like by hitting us 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.
