IceMen Insights Podcast #211:
Saddle Up, Thoroughbreds!

Next Show: Wed 4/9

As the IceMen limp toward the finish line, “IceMen Insights” is as healthy as ever with another hour-plus of online-exclusive analysis and nonsense! In this week’s episode…

Derick and I discuss Matt Schepke’s farewell and future, the home finale, the putrid Florida road trip, Alex Aleardi’s hot hand, facing multiple penalty shots in one game, Guy Lepine quarterbacking the power play, Evansville’s “Tragic Number” for post-season elimination, and some (good) breaking news about Nathan Moon – news that Moon himself doesn’t even know about yet.

Topics of conversation also include April Fools’ Day gags and backlash, the IceMen player awards, the types of ECHL players who move up to the AHL, the Indy Fuel, our usual in-depth injury and transaction report, another Skate Down Memory Lane, an update on the Birds and the BJs, and a look ahead at upcoming IceMen games.

In addition, we offer up another installment of “Hockey 101,” aimed at helping fans better understand the nuances and idiosyncracies of hockey. We discuss when to blame the goalie and when to blame the defense, intentional offside, and why you don’t pressure the opposing team when they have possession of the puck in their own zone.

Plus: Brian Patafie gets hit by a car while jogging, dressing up for Pop Con, butchering Guy Lepine’s name, Derick counts his digits, not-really-game-worn jerseys, trying to fool Tommy Mason, a musical tribute to “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan, $1 beer, Stephen Rickard handling big balls, and the long-awaited return of JAAASON DAAALE!
