As the Olympics roar on, the boys try and get back to work and figure out some playoff seeding, talk the World Juniors host countries being decided from now until 2032 (!!!), and try to figure out what playoff races are worth getting excited about.
Then in our main event, Steve talks to the longtime radio voice of the Niagara IceDogs to talk their recent playoff success, the differences between the rinks Niagara has called home, and then for some reason share recipes on shortbread.
Happy Valentine's Day, except for you single people. You don't deserve love.
On a very special episode, longtime Brampton Battalion fan Steve McLean and a slew of former Brampton and Rogers colleagues take time to remember Doug Anderson, the voice of the Brampton Battalion. Guests include:
All that, a ton of great Doug Anderson calls, and so much more.
Rest in peace Doug
Back off the Top Prospects Game, Brian returns to the show to get the down and dirty behind the scenes in Guelph, while Steve...y'know...Steve's.
Then it's a huge interview with London Knights general manager Rob Simpsons? Why did the Knights sell? And why the heck are they still winning?
In a special bonus episode in coordination with the OHL, the Fanboys are given ALL ACCESS to the CHL/NHL Sherwin-Williams Top Prospects Game in Guelph!
For the first time in Fanboys history, hear Steve and our boy Darius interview actual active players! No for real! Hear their impressions as they go behind the scenes and see what goes into preparing for the biggest draft showcase game of the year!
On a way too long episode of OHL Fanboys....
-Steve gloats about Guelph beating Windsor like that means something in 2018
-the boys try to figure out if the Greyhounds went to Maui already
-the boys go in depth of Jeff Brown's 21 Things article and try to see how many ideas they can say they talked about
Then the meat and potatoes, it's KID CULLY! Former journeyman and beloved OHL goaltender John Cullen drops by to talk about his career, what the heck the 3HL is, and a ton of great stories.
See you Monday
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
