First, let’s apologize to our live streamers who thought we were going on live at 7 central tonight. Obviously, that didn’t happen. This is another reason why I have to get off BTR. Our friend, one-time writer and regular podcast guest Dieter Kurtenbach is now a sports reporter at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. A major development in a story Dieter is covering, the overheating death of a high school football player, came down just before we were about to go live. So we pushed the show back an hour. Due to the news story, Dieter couldn’t join us until 9:15, or 75 minutes into the show. The way BTR works, because I had already gone live, there was no turning back or pausing until Dieter was available.
So the first part of the show is just me flying solo. I know, I’d rather not listen to it either. I gave the run down on the Ray Emery training camp invite, IceHogs changes, Kyle Beach’s next step, Campoli vs Lepisto and probably a list of other topics I can’t recall at the moment.
Part two is my hour-long talk with Dieter Kurtenbach on his questions regarding Stan Bowman’s contradictory maneuverings, Patrick Kane’s story, the Frolik, Campoli and Montador contracts or non-contract, Ben Smith’s future and much more. We also discuss the buzz in South Florida about the Panthers, a team Dieter is now covering for the Sun-Sentinel.
