Talking hockey from 6 - 7 pm on NHLWeekly on sportstalkNetwork.com
Then coming back to chat Islanders.
Well that was fun. One hour certainly does go fast when you have three guests.
Thanks to Radio host Sean Campbell, NHL VP of Community Relations Ken Martin and our good friend Timo Seppa from Hockey Prospectus. You can catch the podcast anytime on SportstalkNETWORK.com.
So John Tavares was named the second star of the week? Of course he was. He had 8 points in two games. We spoke extensively about JT and his abilities and the possibilities for this season. Face it, people are taking notice of the Islanders. This is absolutely a team that will cause havoc.
Timo had some great things to say about a few hot prospects around the rest of the NHL and Ken Martin explained the NHL's "Hockey Fights Cancer" campaign. I learned a lot tonight from them. Did you know that the money the club collects stays in the community? Check the information and make whatever contribution you can afford. I know the economy is tough right now.
Matt Moulson will be filming the next installment of "On The Spot" for ITV tomorrow. Check Twitter and the main website for how you can ask Moulson a question.
Art Staple didn't say much today from practice other than Rick DiPietro skated today.
Rumors are flying around about Blake Comeau. Guess a few people weren't happy with him sitting out the Ranger game. Probably most notably HIM. But that doesn't mean that he's on the trading block. Although -- if you check back, when asked who was good trade bait, I always said Comeau.
That doesn't really mean anything, now does it.
