WELCOME EVERYONE TO THE SENS CALL-UPS……ok, we really can’t keep that up. Well, well, what’s to say about what’s going on in the NHL? In one word NOTHING! In episode 3, we talk about what we have heard about the CBA negotiations (or lack there of) and look at the teams that have lost money and what, in our humble opinions, needs to be done to change that and get the game back on the ice. Looking at the signing bonus payouts and other loopholes, we touch on who is getting paid and who isn’t.
Bingo looks like it will be a great point of interest for the year as well as the AHL as a whole. We look forward to hearing stories of who will shine in the farm team and how the international hockey atmosphere will look.
Kardinal looses it over the Cyril Leeder speech and we give our kudos to those team employees who have either lost their jobs or are on reduced work arrangements. Comparatively to other teams who state that they haven’t laid anyone off, these are the people most affected by the lockout.
The new OHL rules around fighting seem interesting and effective. Will the NHL look at it? Will they even consider it for themselves?
No SCU podcast is complete without a little Whiskey Tango Foxtrot action on the length of contracts vs. the league CBA demands. Some make sense, others don’t.
We wrap things up with a little house cleaning and Pan announces the winner of the SCU Contest Prize! Thanks all for playing and we’ll have more as time goes by.
We look forward to having the actual game to talk about and hope that this lockout comes to an end sooner rather than later. Don’t forget, this is a show for the fans, by the fans, and with the fans, so please – CALL UP!
