IceMen Insights Podcast #109:
As Weather Turns Cold, IceMen Heat Up

The IceMen are 4-0-1 in December and starting to get healthy too. “IceMen Insights” has loads of details and analysis in yet another hour-plus episode…

This week’s topics include the team’s red-hot December start and truly playing as a team, last Friday’s thrilling 8-goal outburst against Toledo, the budding rivalry between the IceMen and the Cincinnati Cyclones, replacing Allen York with Paul Dainton, Rich Kromm’s in-season moves as GM, the week in IceMen roster transactions and injury updates, the big trade that sent Dan Gendur and Dale Mahovsky to Orlando, and context-driven officiating.

Derick and I also discuss the Ford Center’s Canadian flag controversy and Friday’s unofficial “Canada Night,” the bogus Indiana flag that’s still displayed there, increased coverage in The Evansville Courier & Press, Saturday’s Teddy Bear Toss and a brief history of the promotion, IceMen brother acts, Kromm’s thoughts on Todd Robinson and the captain’s stats, and a variety of other Kromm comments from this week’s “IceMen Live” and my post-show discussion with the coach.

Plus: “Pausing” the show to check Facebook, salty language, references to “The Dukes of Hazzard” and “Forrest Gump,” scouting players on HockeyDB, awful hockey haircuts, Tim Hortons donuts, a Jeff Walker sighting, Stephen Rickard’s testicles, thanking new listeners, and a “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Song of the Week” from an SNL alum!
