This week we went hockey heavy as we looked at the deficit the Idaho Steelheads have in the Western Conference Finals. We also take a look and update our thoughts on the NHL playoffs as well. Penn State's Big Ten hockey schedule was released so we discussed that, and finally we gave a quick update on the MLB standings and the pitching woes of the Phillies and the Pirates.
In this episode we recap the NFL draft, look at where the Pirates and Phillies stand after a month of the new season, and we previewed the Idaho Steelheads Western Conference Finals matchup against the Stockton Thunder. We also take a look at some Louis Freeh reports that might have some bias to them. In the discussion we reference two links that we used for some source material. As promised here they are
The first give some details on the Okada-Wynn issue and the second shows where Freeh's last 3 reports have been reviewed and considered lacking through those reviews.
This show was recorded last Wednesday May 1. Enjoy
In this episode we talked a bit of NFL draft preview and who our teams (Eagles, Panther, Steelers) would pick in the first round. Were we right? We also addressed our first listener comments/questions. We talked about the Penguins getting ready for the playoffs and how the Flyers are hurting their chances at a higher draft pick. Also the Idaho Steelheads were tied at 1 game a piece in their Western Conference Semi-Final playoff series.
This episode was recorded this past Tuesday April 23
This week we mentioned the Boston Marathon attack, we discuss the Steelheads second round opponent and their chances of advancing to the ECHL conference finals, John packs in the season officially for the Flyers while Jerome starts thinking Eastern Conference Championship. We take a brief look back at the NCAA Hockey Tournament and we both discuss how bad our baseball teams are (Pirates & Phillies)
Two notes for this episode. 1) We recorded Tuesday April 16 2) We talked about potential players coming back to Idaho from the AHL and incorrectly stated that Justin Dowling was in Connecticut. That was incorrect. He is currently playing in Texas with the Stars and they are poised to lock up the Western Conference in the AHL. By that alone, we are assuming that he will not be returning to Idaho anytime soon.
In a Tuesday recorded episode, we discussed the NHL as well as the ECHL playoffs. We also talked a bit about the first week of Major League Baseball and the Phillies and Pirates. Can the Flyers make the playoffs? Will the Penguins win the Eastern Conference? We address both of those questions as well.
Again, this was recorded on Tuesday. Enjoy
In this special mid-week update we look at the NHL trade deadline and see where teams improved, and also talked about some franchises making the decision to throw in the towel for this year and rebuild.
We hit a variety of sports this week as we previewed the NHL trade deadline as well as the ECHL playoffs. We also talked possible fines in the NBA and made our picks for the upcoming baseball season
