IceMen Insights Podcast #205:
Too Hot For Radio

Next Scheduled Broadcast: Dec. 4

The IceMen have earned at least a point in 7 straight games, and “IceMen Insights” is hot too – so hot that this week’s episode didn’t even air on the radio! But exclusively here on, we’ve got nearly 2 hours of fresh analysis and nonsense for your listening pleasure…

Derick and I discuss last weekend’s entertaining games against Orlando, controversial calls in Saturday’s game, Tuesday’s improved performance at Cincinnati, Jeremy Langlois’ talent, Jacob Johnston’s potential, Garrett Bartus’ debut, Allen York’s future, shootout failures, fixing the power play, and Dylan Clarke’s injury.

This week’s topics also include the Josh Beaulieu bobbleheads, military tributes, Soupy’s luchador name, the Kiss Cam, the return of Brad Perkins, the ECHL’s imminent arrival in Indy, Fill The Bus for the Tri-State Food Bank, another Skate Down Memory Lane, our weekly update on The Birds and The BJs, the Orthopaedic Associates Injury & Transaction Report, and a look ahead at upcoming IceMen games.

In “Overtime,” Derick again takes us behind the scenes – the pronunciation of “Beaulieu,” timing issues in Cincinnati, technical difficulties and dead air, double entendres on the radio, and a bird in the arena. We also talk about the Military Appreciation Night jersey auction, Nazem Kadri’s suspension, the Nashville Predators and the future of Barry Trotz, and the recent struggles of the Detroit Red Wings.

Plus: The real reason why this episode is online-only, Derick giving Soupy mouth-to-mouth, deuces and doo-doo, tangling truculently, Shocker is the “Maniac Asylum Lunatic of the Week,” stupid team names, Canadian beer, Fedor Tyutin, the players’ prank on Derick, metrosexual hockey, verbal typos, the Harlem Globetrotters, Nickelback, playin’ with beavers, John Reichart, Jose Vazquez, signing autographs, Derick is a spitter, making kids cry, Tweets and quotes a-plenty, curling, drunks, atrocious Russian accents, Derick gets fined, and broken penises!
