The Hockey Show - Episode 254

The Hockey Show will have one common theme tonight as we didn't talk about this topic last week when we probably should have. Instead, we're going for a full Hockey Canada-based show tonight as we look at a number of announcements and information that Hockey Canada has put out over the last couple of weeks regarding the Olympics, the Hockey Canada Summer Showcase, and the World Junior Summer Showcase. I'll be honest when I say that I think that hockey players need a few months away from the rink to pursue other ventures, but Hockey Canada is gearing up for another year of championships in the month of August!

Teebz and Beans will sit down tonight and muddle through the Team Canada Olympic hopefuls as they try to make sense of who should be there, who will probably there, and who may be longshots to make this Olympic team. There are a lot of former NHL players over in Europe who could provide the necessary spark to this team as well as a pile of AHL players who should be called upon if necessary, so we'll see what kind of team we can create if the two hosts were Sean Burke and Martin Brodeur. We'll also talk about the U Sports women's players who were invited to Calgary for Hockey Canada's Summer Showcase, and we'll touch on the World Junior Summer Showcase that's ongoing as we speak. It's a full Hockey Canada show today, so join us for all the discussion!
