IceMen Insights Podcast #116:
The Worst Radio Ever Done

Programming Note: We will NOT produce a podcast next week (2/13/13) because Derick will be out of town, but the show will return the following week (2/20/13) and continue weekly as usual after that. In the absence of “IceMen Insights” next week, I will post a new story about player salaries here on Please come back then and check it out!

The IceMen are now two-thirds of the way through the 2012-13 season, and “IceMen Insights” has another hour of analysis and shenanigans to help you prepare for the final third…

This week’s topics include the Cyclones jumping Nathan Moon and all of the fisticuffs last Friday, the first shootout in the history of the Ford Center, Saturday’s fight-filled loss to Elmira, first impressions of Matt Krug, home game attendance, the strategy of pulling the goalie, and our weekly IceMen injury and transaction report.

Derick and I also discuss Saturday’s post-game jersey auction, the first-ever Guns & Hoses hockey game, 2013-14 IceMen ticket prices, penalty-minute leaders, ragging on Cody Beach, and the upcoming two weeks of IceMen hockey.

Plus: “Real Men of Genius,” doing an interactive post-post-game show on WYIR, vuvuzelas, leaving Derick on the cutting-room floor, Anton Blomqvist’s popularity (or lack thereof), Brad Perkins’ best friend, blaming Brian Patafie, Denis Pylon, 911 Gives Hope, Blizzard as Todd Robinson’s equal, listening to 8-tracks, Stephen Rickard’s brain, peacock tail, and a pair of “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Songs of the Week” with a distinct Hoosier flavor!
