IceMen Insights Podcast #112:
The NHL Returns, Fights, Marriages & More!

After a week off, “IceMen Insights” has returned with well over an hour of fun-filled IceMen news and analysis…

This week’s topics include the past two weeks of IceMen games, which IceMen players and ECHL teams are hot, the rivalry with Cincinnati, Anthony Nigro’s recent improvement, Brett Ponich fighting, re-visiting the Kevin Baker trade, missing Allen York, the team’s continued third-period struggles, Jesse Perrin’s sudden departure and fans zipping through “the five stages of grief,” and all of the latest IceMen injury and transaction news.

Derick and I also discuss evaluating ECHL officials, the ECHL All-Star Team roster, Team USA winning Gold at the World Junior Championship, an Evansville youth hockey team’s big opportunity, the end of the NHL lockout and how it will affect the IceMen and the ECHL, and the upcoming week of IceMen hockey.

Plus: A boy named “Skate” (seriously), Derick calls an ECHL player a “d-bag,” Tony Twist, Ryan Reaves, goalie fights, Matt Hoon, Derick’s daughter Ivy introduces a segment, “Santa Pants” and “Lobster Claws,” Terry Ficorelli finally getting some “nice ice” for his longtime girlfriend, impending nuptials for an IceMen Maniacs Booster Club board member, and TWO “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Song of the Week” tunes!
