This week we’re joined by Adam Summers of the Breakout! Hockey Program, which you can find at BreakoutHockey.podomatic.com.
With Adam we touch on a ton of league-wide topics including the weekend’s All-Star festivities, highlights, the burden of being Phil Kessel and the man who wakes up every day knowing he traded for him.
We take advantage of Adam’s Montreal Canadiens expertise to delve into that team’s first half. The P.K. Subban controversies, the decision to keep Carey Price and trade Jaroslav Halak – how that looks so far and if we can expect the preliminary results to continue.
With 28 days to go until the NHL trade deadline and 69 days left in the NHL 2010-11 regular season, we look at early favorites, and possible darkhorses, to come out of the Eastern and Western conferences. Other topics include HBO’s 24/7 vs TSN’s Oil Change documentary series, the plight of one Ilya Kovalchuk and much more including Summer’s thoughts on the current state of the Blackhawks and who on the IceHogs has impressed him in his visits to the Rockford MetroCentre.
Later in the show we discuss the blatant and unethical salary cap circumvention motives involved in Nick Leddy’s All-Star break supposed “reassignment” to AHL-Rockford. Hint: Leddy never went there. We discuss the Blackhawks’ upcoming 5-game road trip; what looks good and what looks to be dodgy. Some notes on the next CBA negotiations, if Patrick Sharp was the right choice as ASG MVP, upcoming podcasts and much, much more.
And in amongst all of that, on a hockey show, we made space to discuss Snowmageddon!!, Shinsuke Nakamura, Satoshi Kojima, the GHC Heavyweight Champion Takashi Sugiura and the G-1 Climax tournament~! Awesome. I challenge you to find another hockey radio show anywhere with that kind of versatility. Well, aside from Adam’s show.
Anyhow, enjoy, and thanks to all for listening.

Thanks again to Adam for joining us. We’ll be back at least once more this week. Superstar and I will be recording an experimental show on Saturday night talking Blackhawks-Blue Jackets, Hawks-Canucks and UFC-126 “Silva vs Belfort”. I should also mention we will be drinking (perhaps heavily) during that show.
And we’ll return in our weekly weeknight timeslot next Tuesday, February 8th at 8pm central with a guest who is To Be Determined.
Until then, enjoy the snow and your silly big weekend ball games.
