Slewfoot 7.12 – Expanding the Watered Down

On this episode of the Slewfoot Hockey Show, we talk about a potential expansion team in Seattle. Will it add to an already watered down product? We discuss what happened and what could happen to an already watered down product.

We have preliminary discussions about the upcoming NHL All Star game, and who some of the top voted for players are so far – there’s lots of time to vote for your favourite player – it doesn’t matter if they deserve to be there or not…is the All Star game becoming watered down as well?

We discuss the latest of what went down at the Board of Governors meeting this past week, we talk about Matthew Tkachuk’s latest shenanigans, and we let you know who has been invited to the Team Canada and Team USA World Junior Championship camps – a camp to determine who will represent their team at the World Junior Championships starting in a few week’s time.

Will Erik Karlsson be traded? We discuss some of the comments made on HNIC last evening and if that would be a possibility to move the Captain out of town.

We end the show by giving you some great stocking stuffer ideas for the hockey player on your list! There’s some good ideas so be sure to take some notes!

Thanks you all for listening, enjoy your week and please send your comments and questions!

 

Slewfoot 7.11 – The Red Wing Blues

After a very difficult Red Wings loss last night, Dave and Fred are back to talk some more hockey, specifically about the Habs dismantling of the Red Wings in Montreal.

We discuss at length what went wrong with the Red Wings last night. Did they show up? Was Montreal just much better? It wasn’t even close and it was a very big 4 points for the Habs this weekend.

We discuss the milestone that Daniel Sedin hit last week, 1000 points for his career is a very big milestone for him and congratulations to him for achieving it.

We move on to the Injury Train and discuss some of the injuries around the league, specifically what is happening with goalies and the injuries to them.

We then move on to “Real Stat or Forget That” – it’s a close one this week, one you won’t want to miss! (We may talk a bit more about the Red Wings and their misery)

Thank you for listening, be sure to send us a message with your comments!

Slewfoot 7.10 – Need a Gift Idea?

This week’s episode of the Slewfoot Hockey Show has us one week closer to the Holiday Season! It’s Thanksgiving weekend in the United States and Grey Cup weekend here in Canada and we talk about both to kick off the show. It seems to have put us in the gift giving mood.

We get into some talk about how the Vegas Golden Knights are performing so well this season so far and what their secret to success has been.

Kevin Bieksa has been a force this season so far and someone you do not want to mess with. Check out his latest fight and the gift he gives in a form of a knockout from Saturday night – it’s a beauty! 

We discuss who the MVP might be this season, we both do not think it has been the Leafs goaltender – sorry Mr. Cherry…we have some talk about Jerome Iginla and where he could end up, where Ryan Nugent Hopkins could end up, if Chris Kunitz will end up in the Hall of Fame, and more!

Having trouble with a gift idea? To end off the show today, we give you, our listeners, some advice on what hockey books are out there for you to get for your hockey fan this holiday season. Stories about hockey players and their experiences written by Wayne Gretzky, Doug Gilmour, Dave Bidini, Ron McLean, Ken Dryden, Kirstie McClellan Day, Theo Fleury, Dan Robson, Stephen Brunt, Kelly Hrudy, Sean Avery & many more!

There’s many to choose from and if you want a great gift, check out some of the books we talk about!

Slewfoot 7.9 – Who’s the Dirtiest of Them All?

The Slewfoot Hockey Show is back! This week on the show, Fred and Dave attempt to figure out what is still wrong with the Canadiens. They look at it from both sides of the coin – the negatives and the positives, what’s going right and what’s going wrong.

They move onto the latest in suspensions around the NHL – what happened to who and what suspensions were handed out by the DOPS. They then discuss who is the dirtiest player in the NHL – is it Radko Gudas? Is it Matthew Tkachuk? Is it Nazem Kadri?

The Hall of Fame class for this season is quite impressive – find out what we have to say about these great contributors to the game of hockey.

We close out the show with another round of “Yes Way, No Way” – we get right to the point with asking some very good questions this week!
