Alan and I don't normally stray too far from the topic of hockey, but this intro we made an exception. Between the manna from heaven which is Cherry Coke Zero, Apple TV's wonderful EarthCam app and Alan's irrational hatred of Two Broke Girls, it was a slightly wacky beginning. Of course, some hockey talk wandered in as well, and we touched upon both the largeness of Connor Hellebuyck and trying to be nicer to Mark Stuart, not to mention my bold and very probably wrong position on the Jack Adams Award.
With that, we were joined by our guest Ryan Murphy, the Tim AKA Managing Editor of Mile High Hockey. Alan asked him about how nice it was to have a team show up and be the Stanley Cup Champions the very next season, while being perplexed at Ray Bourque's retired number. I was then allowed to be the hockey nerd that I am, which meant lots of Alexander Radulov, Francois Beauchemin and Matt Duchene talk. We discovered that Nick Holden is not the answer for anything, while also finding out about the litany of things it'll take for Colorado to become relevant in the Central again. The glories of the Pepsi Centre scoreboard, the pleasant surprise which has been John Mitchell, the spectre of Zach Redmond, saying three nice things about Brad Stuart, enjoy all this and much, much more!
Finally, we made the mistake of waiting until after the game to record our outro, and the result was a whole lot of Kevin Cheveldayoff discussion. Listen to us struggle to come up with positives about Chevy for arby_18 to write, not to mention Alan's new motto for the Winnipeg Jets: Just Happy To Be Here.
