TTMI~Radio e.69: Pucking Around the NHL with Breakout! Hockey

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.

TTMI~Radio returns this week with a look to the Pacific Division and the upward bound Los Angeles Kings.  We are joined by The Mayor of MayorsManor.com, who gives us the lowdown on all-things LA Kings. 

Terry Murray’s Kings, led by stars Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown, Jack Johnson and many others figure to be a prominent fixture and pain in the side of teams like the Blackhawks, Sharks and Red Wings not only in 2010-11 but for many years to come.

For you Twitter-ers, you can also follow The Mayor @ Twitter.com/Mayor119

In the last half hour of the show, we explain what went wrong with last week’s show (a transcript of my interview with player-agent Scott Norton will be posted on the site in a day or two) and why the live show hasn’t been posted on line to date as well as why Antti Niemi and agent Bill Zito made the right choice in signing with the Sharks.

As for our discussion with the Mayor, we covered many topics, including, but not limited to….

- Review and fallout of Kings’ first-round exit dealt by the Canucks in April

- Interesting battle brewing between the pipes this season between Jonathan Quick and rookie Jonathan Bernier.

- Facts behind the Kings’ pursuit of Ilya Kovalchuk

- Likelihood Jack Johnson could be dealt and the Kings’ pursuit of a true #2 centreman

- Updates on talent-rich prospect field including; defenseman Thomas Hickey, Colton Teubert, Vyacheslav Voinov, Alec Martinez and Nicolas Deslauriers and yet another goaltender, Martin Jones.  As well as when we can expect to see forwards Brayden Schenn (who many believe could become the Kings’ #2 center much sooner than you’d think) and Russian winger Andrei Loktionov.

- As young and talented as the Kings were a year ago, four of their more-recent 1st round picks are in-line for solid NHL careers, but have yet to crack LA’s roster.

- The signing of former ‘Nucks blue liner Willie Mitchell

- Who’s the real leader in LA?  And an interesting behind the scenes story of an event that led to the Kings’ turnaround last season.

- Wayne Simmonds

- Matt Greene, Brad Richardson and more key Kings you may not know but should

- LA Kings fans and the atmosphere inside Staples Center

- Southern Cal vs Northern Cal rivalry

Again, check out Mayor’s work at MayorsManor.com.

TTMI~Radio returns Monday night, September 13th @ 8pm central at BlogTalkRadio.com/TheThirdManIn.
