IceMen Insights Podcast #215:
Crafting a Masterpiece

Next Show: Wed. June 4

“IceMen Insights” is back with another hour-plus of IceMen analysis and nonsense! In this week’s episode…

Derick and I discuss the IceMen coaching search and one longtime NHL player who wants the job, which players we would bring back from the 2013-14 IceMen team, Garrett Bartus’ recent AHL tryout, Thomas Larkin at the IIHF World Championships, Daultan Leveille heading to France, and the cloudy future of the Las Vegas Wranglers – and how it could shake up the entire ECHL.

Topics of conversation also include the Blue Jackets’ newfound organizational depth in net, the Indy Fuel, Todd Robinson’s apparent retirement, teams folding in other minor leagues, playoff updates from throughout the hockey world, booster club news, and another Skate Down Memory Lane.

In addition, we offer up another installment of “Hockey 101,” aimed at helping fans better understand the nuances and idiosyncracies of hockey. We discuss natural hat tricks, the timeline of the NHL’s usage of overtime, and when the league has awarded a point in the standings for losing in overtime.

Plus: The debut of a hilarious new segment starring Stephen Rickard, Disney princesses, Pierre Mcguire is annoying creepy annoyingly creepy, Buffalo Sabres Community College, Nathan Moon’s switch to baseball, a redhead Derick DOESN’T like, and a musical tribute to Baywatch!
