The IceMen can no longer make the playoffs (officially), but “IceMen Insights” is still chugging right along with another hour-plus of fun…
This week’s topics include the team’s mathematical elimination from playoff contention, the IceMen playing short-handed, losing both Paul Karpowich and Paul Dainton in a single day, what new goaltender James Reid can bring to the team, if/when Kevin Moore will get a start in net, Evansville’s goal-scoring leaders, and our weekly IceMen injury and transaction report.
Derick and I also discuss insights from IceMen owner Ron Geary, the IceMen skills contest at Monday’s season ticket holder party, Brian Bicek going to Arizona after all, affiliation options for next season, the passing of Stompin’ Tom Connors, and the upcoming week of IceMen hockey.
Plus: A “Real Men of Genius” about Chuck-A-Puck, conditional predictions and revisionist memory, peeing in the sink, Derick’s celebrity crush, being uglier than John Malkovich, name pronunciation problems, R2D2 “calls in,” Shocker commits an error, seeking applause from the live studio audience, Derick tries to get rid of his wife, protecting the yam bag, feeling our own boobs, Derick’s Etch-A-Sketch brain, and a “Shocker’s Hockey Rock Song of the Week” for St. Patrick’s Day!
