The Hockey Show - Episode 146

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with another jam-packed show. The phone lines will be open and we'll happily take your calls as we run down the free agency madness, the trades, the draft, some of the bigger news stories, and more on tonight's show. Honestly, I have more notes for tonight's show than any other show I can remember, so we'll work through all that and more tonight with a focus on the moves and decisions made by the Jets and Moose.

It was a pretty crazy day on the free agent front, but only due to the action rather than the storylines being about the money. Usually, we see GMs spending ludicrous amounts of money on third-line players, but I have to admit the GMs really contained themselves this year. Yes, some teams did spend money, but most of the deals were quite reasonable given the salary cap and the demands. Obviously, there were a few major trades as Brandon Saad and Phil Kessel find themselves in new homes, and we'll break down which side of the trade came out on top. We'll also talk about some of the news stories that broke this week including Mike Richards having his contract terminated, a senior writer at The Hockey News ripping into an NHL owner after the writer makes an error, and the denial of the Coyotes moving once more. Like I said off the top, it's going to be a jam-packed show!

The phones will be wide open and we want to hear your thoughts on any or all of these topics! Hit us up at 204-269-8636! Join us tonight 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!
