The IceMen continue to deal with ongoing roster instability, but “IceMen Insights” is consistently bringing the goods with another hour-plus edition…
This week’s topics include the first three games of the team’s season-long five-game road trip, how an injury-depleted cellar-dwelling team can go on the road and beat a division-leading team that had won 11 straight, getting the backup goalie treatment, the future of the Evansville goaltending situation, IceMen injury updates with the latest “man-games lost” count, and another round of roster transactions.
We also discuss the team’s interim captains while Todd Robinson and Philippe Plante are on the shelf, the role of captains both on and off the ice, the never-ending NHL lockout and how a lost season would impact the ECHL, the upcoming stretch of four games in five days, keeping playoff hopes alive, and appreciating the simple fact that we have hockey in Evansville.
Plus: Derick Benigni’s “adult movie” name, Pack the House Night, Pier-Olivier Pelletier, Thanksgiving feasts, Brian Patafie bobbleheads, a guaranteed victory, a “Caddyshack” reference, and a dramatic cliffhanger ending!
