A special-express caffeine-fueled edition of TTMI~Radio this week. Only thirteen more of these to go now….
Al Cimaglia of Sirius/XM Home Ice and HockeyIndependent.com joined for sixty-five minutes of Hawk Talk. We did this show two hours earlier and quicker than usual since I had to be out the door for a fantasy football draft tonight. Great show though, covering a bevy of topics.
After running down all the recent pertinent news, Al and I listen to comments Patrick Kane made to a Toronto radio station last week and give our take on the Hawks’ superstar right winger’s new destination date of recovery.
We also take a look at controversial comments recently made by Mike Cammalleri and the now-retired Dave Scatchard. Is the NHL’s current concussion care policy good enough? Should their be greater concerns, as Cammalleri hints, at the artificial enhancements players are using to compete and endure the NHL grind and is the current drug testing policy doing the job?
Also, we analyze Marcus Kruger‘s place on this year’s Blackhawks; Jimmy Hayes given the opportunity to train in Lugano over a recent 1st round pick; IceHogs’ roster concerns; what we would have paid Chris Campoli to stay and answers to emails on why two of the greatest goaltenders of all-time, Dominik Hasek and Ed Belfour, were sent packing by Chicago in the early to mid-90s.
All this and probably more I’m forgetting.
