This week Steve talks with long time voice of the Sudbury Wolves who now is the play by play voice of the Hamilton Bulldogs on TSN1150 Stew Kernan. They chat about Kernan's long career in the OHL as well as the loading up the Bulldogs did at the deadline.
Meanwhile the guys discuss the former OHL players who have been named to the 2018 Olympic team as well as the great start many of the traded players at the deadline have had with their new teams.
The 2018 OHL trade deadline is finally over and nobody has 2nd round picks left. The guys totally breakdown all the trades that have gone down since the Christmas break, who won, who lost, who has set themselves up for a deep playoff run.
Meanwhile the show finally gives some love to the QMJHL as Steve chats with the play by play announcer for the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles Patrick McNeil.
Here may it wave,
Our boast, our pride
And joined in love together,
The thistle, shamrock, rose entwined,
The Maple Leaf Forever.
The boys recap and criticize the 2018 World Juniors and talk to TSN's Dennis Beyak about covering the tournament!
SEE YOU THURSDAY AFTER THE TRADE DEADLINE!
2018 called, they want their podcast back.
The boys avoid talking World Juniors for 3 more days and play catch up on the OHL holiday break games, mostly catching up on all the trades, whether trading picks A DECADE AWAY is stupid (spoiler: yes), and why Steve is into 16yr olds so much.
Then get this, the Greyhounds? They're on a 23 game win streak. Crazy right? You'd think they'd be stupid busy prepping to break Kitchener's record, but nah, they're so chill, Drew Bannister decided to blow off some practice time to talk to Steve about the streak, the Hounds being 7 games up on everyone else, and their chances at Regina.
We'll see you this weekend for the World Juniors episode. We talked to your mother and she said we can borrow you for a couple hours. It's our weekend to have you anyways
