The IceMen may be falling apart at the seams after an 0-3 weekend, but “IceMen Insights” is still going strong with another hour-long episode…
This week’s topics include the team’s trio of losses in the past week, possible troubles in the locker room, the rekindling of the IceMen/Komets rivalry, the sudden departures of Matt Schepke and Sebastian Wannstrom, evaluating Jim McKenzie, and our weekly IceMen injury and transaction report.
Derick and I also discuss the way-too-soon passing of Ryan Christian, veteran leaders from Evansville’s first CHL season, the passion of the IceMen fan base, living through losing seasons and looking forward to next year, “Fic” alliteration, penalty shots, and the upcoming week of IceMen hockey.
Plus: Evan (Son of Shocker) in the studio, Derick’s daughter Ivy and the (Canadian) Russian Bar Trio both on the IR, officiating conspiracies, Brad Perkins making good on a bet, the upcoming wedding of Terry Ficorelli, puking at the Ford Center, quoting “Goon” and critiquing hockey movies, WYIR’s new “Music Bomb” slogan, Brian Vaal “calling the bluff” of a supposedly gay teammate, the Manti Te’o Kiss Cam, Derick makes a money-back guarantee, and a “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Song of the Week” that is about as far from “rock” as you can get – but for a very good reason!
