IceMen Insights Podcast #110:
The Road Trip From Hell

Holiday Programming Note: We WILL produce a podcast next week (12/26/12), but will NOT have a new episode the following week (1/2/13). The podcast will then return on 1/9/13 and continue weekly as usual after that.

The IceMen earned just a single point on last weekend’s ridiculous “3 games in less than 48 hours” road trip, but lots of home games and (hopefully) more victories lie ahead. The TENTH episode (believe it or not) of “IceMen Insights” begins by touching on last Friday’s horrific mass shooting in Connecticut, then lightens the mood with over an hour of the usual mish-mash of analysis and shenanigans you’ve come to expect…

This week’s topics include a recap of the road trip, some interesting shootout facts, Paul Dainton’s strong IceMen debut, penalty-killing successes and power-play struggles, “breaking” our affiliates’ “toys,” fixing our problems on defense, and the latest injury and transaction updates.

Derick and I also discuss Rich Kromm’s playing career and coaching background, which IceMen player is most deserving of a trip to the ECHL All-Star Game, why the IceMen haven’t signed any locked-out NHL players, keeping an eye on the league standings, and the team’s upcoming 6-game homestand.

Plus: Brad Perkins love, “The 12 Pains of Christmas,” Wayne Gretzky and Brett Hull references, “Kevinsville,” stealing pucks, Adam “Bacon” Russo, “The Dunkin’ Dutchman” Rik Smits, and punching people in the face!
