IceMen Insights Podcast #132:
Wrapping Up Our First Season

Next Scheduled Broadcast: Oct. 16 (Season 2 Premiere)

Against all odds, “IceMen Insights” has made it through its first full season – and before we get rolling on Season 2, we conclude Season 1 with another hour of analysis and nonsense…

Derick and I discuss our latest addition on defense, IceMen players getting a look in AHL training camps, former IceMen signing elsewhere, players from last season who are still free agents, which signed players we think are virtual locks to make the team, and who we think is in danger of being cut before the regular season begins.

This week’s topics also include the team’s new anti-bullying campaign, the Blue & White Scrimmage, the booster club selling authentic IceMen locker room nameplates and “Maniac Asylum” t-shirts, pre-game festivities for the home opener, and Guns & Hoses Hockey.

Plus: Our last IceMen Trivia, Shocker spinnin’ the tunes at Swonder again, Derick uncovers another police scandal, The BizNado, The Intimidator, Shocker gets inside Derick’s head, Brian Patafie gets all Freudian on us, avoiding Ticketmaster, Derick daydreams about taking charge of his mancrush, the return of “The Maniac Asylum Lunatic of the Week,” heckling Derick while he’s refereeing, and what’s on tap for Season 2!
