PuckChatter~Radio, Got ‘Em from the Peanut Man

By Chris Block

PuckChatter~Radio returned Sunday night (in sixty-minute form) to review a bunch of topics, some of which actually pertained to Chicago Blackhawks hockey.

We also reviewed our recent camping excursion in the northern reaches of Wisconsin, Sunday’s trip to Wrigley Field for the Chicago Cubs game (and more) and also a recent altercation Block had outside of a Jewel-Osco.

On the hockey side we talked the potential changes and ramifications should the NHL owners and player’s association agree to modify the current structure of Entry-Level contracts, Rostislav Olesz‘s status for this season, a Kyle Beach article sets a new standard for incompetence, Cristobal Huet‘s new big contract and the Blackhawks new ticket pricing structure for the 2012-13 season.

All that and much, much more.

Fall bookstore: New releases on Bobby Hull, Mikita, Stellick, Salming and paperback reissues


2010-11 was great year for avid consumers and readers of hockey books.  At this point we’ll take a wait and see approach to measure this coming year’s crop, but there are a few standouts hitting your favorite book outlets before Christmas.

–First, though – Gamers, NHL 12, via EA Sports, for Xbox and PS3 hits stores on Tuesday, Sept 13th.  Steven Stamkos is this year’s cover boy, succeeding Jonathan Toews.  Among the additions to this year’s game are Wayne Gretzky and the Winter Classic game at Heinz Field.

For readers….

Wiley Publications has three new books hitting the market before the end of the year.

Adam Proteau has a book coming out in December.  The title, “Fighting the Good Fight: Why On-Ice Violence is Killing Hockey,” is sure to ruffle some eyebrows.  Proteau is a staunch advocate of eliminating fighting in hockey.  While I’m not really on board with that idea, I am looking forward to this book.  It’s listed at 288 pages, so hopefully it’s an all-encompassing look at the violence issues plaguing the game, not limited to goonery, and possible steps to be taken to curb those, instead of steering it mostly towards fighting.

Former Maple Leafs general manager Gord Stellick also has a book forthcoming on November 8th.  Stellick is now a sports talk radio personality in Toronto.  Stellicktricity promises to be chock full of wit, anecdotal insight on some of the game’s biggest names.   Sounds like it will be similar to Steve Ludzik’s book Been There Done That. – Read more »
