IceMen Insights Podcast #123:
A Change At The Top

Next Scheduled Broadcast: May 1

With the 2012-13 season now over, “IceMen Insights” is back (after a couple weeks off) with another hour of analysis and nonsense…

The top story this week is obviously the dismissal of Rich Kromm and subsequent hiring of Jeff Pyle as IceMen Head Coach, a topic that takes up about half of the show. What ultimately doomed Kromm, and where will he land? What does Pyle bring to the table? How long had the switch been brewing? And how does the coaching change affect which players might be brought back for next season?

This week’s topics also include wrapping up the 2012-13 season, James Reid’s selflessness, Daniel Tetrault’s loyalty and popularity, kharma catching up to Kevin Baker, fight trivia, atrocious plus/minus ratings, fake Cyclones controversy, and the ECHL and CHL playoffs.

Plus: Jason Dale has a girlfriend, Brian Patafie is screwed, inadvertent cursing, Tom Glavine, a 7’7″ hockey player, sissy foreigners, Derick’s lips are chapped, Don Cherry, itchy bums and smelly fingers, Bionic Benigni, BTO, Guns & Hoses, Derick’s Etch-A-Sketch brain strikes again, not-quite-optimum radio work, and shenanigans involving monkeys!
