The Hockey Show - Episode 275

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight with a deeper look at the two tournaments running simultaneously this week! The World Junior Championship is currently on every TSN channel you may have as it takes place in Buffalo, New York while the Spengler Cup sneaks its way into TSN's programming when it can as it is being held in Davos, Switzerland. There have been some notable performances at the World Junior Championship thus far, but the one group of people that has yet to show up are the people of Buffalo. We'll also take a look at the changes that happened in Davos for this year's Spengler Cup as The Hockey Show dives deep into the Swiss-based tournament!

It's just Teebz in the booth tonight as the lone wolf will pick apart the World Junior Championship! The image to the left is a pretty accurate look at the fans in Buffalo at this year's World Junior tournament. Buffalo has seen horrible attendance numbers for the first five games that were played in the 19,200-seat Key Bank Center, and it might be time for the IIHF to really sit down and examine the issues surrounding the dwindling attendance figures seen in Montreal and Buffalo over the last two tournaments. I'll take a shot at how to fix this tournament so more people show up, and I'll even float a crazy idea out there to rekindle the spark in this tournament. I'll dig into the changes at the Spengler Cup. I'll have some news and notes about a few other Euro hockey teams and players, and I'll end the show tonight by giving my regards to one of the classiest men to ever play the game in Johnny Bower. This all happens tonight at 5:30pm!
