IceMen Insights Podcast #311:
Hop Aboard the Coaching Carousel

Next Show: Jan. 14 (Tentative)

“IceMen Insights” is back after the holiday break with an unusual format this week – the first half of the show aired on WYIR as usual and is also in the podcast, while the second half of the show (featuring several regular on-air segments) did not air on WYIR and is exclusively available only in our podcast. Among the analysis and nonsense in this week’s episode…

In the portion of the show that aired on WYIR, Derick and I discuss the IceMen firing Dwight Mullins after a putrid December and hiring Al Sims as his replacement behind the bench, Derick’s beloved Toronto Maple Leafs making a coaching change as well, a former AAHA IceMen goaltender playing in the AHL, a former CHL IceMen defenseman going bonkers, local goalie Chris Crook suiting up as EBUG for Quad City at the Ford Center, Toledo’s outdoor games, Cincinnati’s two-part Teddy Bear Toss, the past 3 weeks of IceMen injuries and transactions, and the next week of IceMen games.

Topics of conversation in the podcast-exclusive “Overtime” portion of the show (starting at 43:36) include Guy Lepine’s captaincy, “Hockey 101″ about carrying two sticks, the Brian Patafie Tweet of the Week, a “Dangling Tangent” about crappy jobs, the Ugly Christmas Sweater jersey auction, the Hoosier Hockey Championship Belt, the Winter Classic and other recent NHL developments, and another speculative medical diagnosis from Doctor Dirty D.

Plus: Jesus wants to coach the Leafs, Mallards like Skittles, taking one in the nuts, Ottawa skank, New Year’s Eve fireworks, the return of “broken penis,” Green Eggs & Ham, and a “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Song of the Week” inspired by Monster Jam!
