PuckChatter~Radio, e.106 w/ Dieter Kurtenbach

Our old friend and one-time TTMI writer Dieter Kurtenbach joined me last night for this week’s PuckChatter~Radio.  Dieter is now a sports writer at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and covers the Florida Panthers.

On this show recorded late Monday night, Dieter and I discussed the latest controversy surrounding Patrick Kane and what we think of the reaction it has garnered.  Dieter also gives his take on the state of the Blackhawks as well as what steps need to be taken moving forward to get this team back to the Cup.

TTMI~Radio, e.86, Sunshine SuperStan, Parts 1&2

This one…..

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.

TTMI~Radio: Trade Deadline edition with Al Cimaglia, Dieter Kurtenbach and Chris Block

Monday night I was joined by Sirius/XM Radio & HockeyIndependent.com ‘s own Al Cimaglia, and as well by Dieter Kurtenbach to discuss the Blackhawks moves and non-moves leading up to the NHL’s 2011 Trade Deadline earlier in the day.

We talked about what Chris Campoli brings to the Hawks, and what he doesn’t; the Blackhawks’ needs and if Stan Bowman addressed any;  what effect Jordan Hendry’s injury had on Bowman’s plan; Scotty Bowman’s future; the Leddy plan; the Brent Seabrook contract extension and we also speculated on what would have happened had the Hawks not extended or traded Seabrook now or in the off season.

Jan 10th TTMI~Radio Blackhawks & NHL Mid Season report

On this week’s show, we discuss Blackhawk victories this weekend over the Ottawa Senators and Brideport Sound Tigers; the penalty kill woes, tackle the team’s biggest problem (rhymes with “teeth”), Brent Seabrook and Corey Crawford’s contracts and respective futures with the Blackhawks.

Also we look at Nick Leddy and if he’ll crack the significant 10-game barrier this week.  Later, we look at Stan Bowman’s trade options, his needs and our ideas for potential trade targets.

We list our picks for 1st Half MVP, Norris, Vezina and Jack Adams trophy leaders; biggest surprise, disappointments and more.

And we close with a shootout debate.  Should it be changed, if so, how?  And how we would improve the NHL’s current 3-point system.  All this and a little bit more on this week’s TTMI~Radio!

We’re joined this week by Dieter Kurtenbach.  You Tweeters can follow Dieter on Twitter @DKurtenbach

TTMI~Radio with Mike Peck, voice of Rockford IceHogs and Dieter Kurtenbach

 Tonight we are joined by Mike Peck, voice of the Rockford IceHogs. Peck gives us his unique perspective on several Chicago Blackhawks prospects including Kyle Beach, Jeremy Morin, Igor Makarov and Ivan Vishnevskiy.  We also check on the health status of a few ‘Hogs, and also confirm news of the impending return of Mathis Olimb.  In addition, Mike discusses his background, his experience in the announcer’s booth and differences between UHL vs AHL.

Dieter Kurtenbach is in the guest-host chair on this edition of TTMI~Radio to discuss the Blackhawks at the 1/4 mark of the 2010-11 season, the impending 6-game road trip, what’s wrong with Duncan Keith and Marian Hossa and if Dieter’s ready to eat crow on Viktor Stalberg.

We also tackle the issues between bloggers and MSM (mainsteam sports media) and Tyler Dellow’s controversial discovery in NHL VP of Hockey Ops Colin Campbell’s email exchanges with former Director of Officiating Stephen Walkom.  And we ask the questions, “Would the reaction to this story been different if it were discovered by a member of MSM?” and “At what point should bloggers be held up to the same ethical and professional standards as members of the MSM?”

Thanks for listening…
