Next Scheduled Broadcast: June 5
As “Silly Season” continues and the off-season kicks into high gear, “IceMen Insights” is back with a potpourri of P topics – from Pyle to Patafie, playoff prognostications to protected lists, and Peoria to Pittsburgh…
This week, Derick and I discuss which potential returning players are on Coach Pyle’s radar, the future of Evansville’s affiliation situation, the ECHL’s critical summer dates, where IceMen fans will now be able to watch road games, more changes in the IceMen front office, and the Komets’ kontroversial koaching
Other topics include the latest “Silly Season” news (including a major update on Peoria’s future), Todd Robinson leading the Allen Americans to the CHL championship, predicting the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs (and recapping our mediocre picks from the first round), and updates on the AHL and ECHL playoffs.
Plus: “Cool Summer” time killers, Derick laments the Leafs’ Game 7 meltdown, Shocker proposes a terribly corny pickup line, really really really long road trips, meaningless titles, the magic of the playoffs, rockin’ out with Styx, the IceMen Maniacs co-ed softball team, Mudbugs, face-off trivia, Shocker imitates Denis Lemieux from “Slap Shot,” another IceMen wedding, egg on Derick’s face, giving Aaron Miller a hard time about pulling the goalie, out-punting your coverage, Red Hot Chili Peppers, brown-nosing, vasectomies, Stephen Rickard’s “leaf blower,” Brian Patafie’s jock, Ryan Huff’s peacock feathers, and a 5’9″ player racking up over 600 penalty minutes in a single season!
