In this weeks ramblin' edition of Cheaters Never Win, we welcome Web master and reporter for CarolinaHurricanes.com, Michael Smith to discuss recent changes that you may have heard about in the front office. We discuss some draft stuff, we tease the future video podcast, and welcome in a new sponsor, Dawn of Fathom Realty. As always, we answer your #Cheatmail, we drink a tasty beverage from @Bottlemixx, and generally have a good time. We promise to be better next week.
In this episode, we're joined by Mark Seidel, chief scout for North America Central scouting to talk the NHL Draft. More specifically, why canes fans should be excited about Svechnikov and confident that Rick Dudley is part of the organization. As usual, we get to your cheatmail, and review delicious beverages from Bottlemixx.
As we welcome in the offseason, change is abundant for the Carolina Hurricanes and we're here to try and make some sense of it. Bill Peters is out as coach, there is no GM, and somehow we're ok with it. Maybe its because Hayes Permar has a new SportsChannel8 Radio show on 99.9TheFan and we're simply too excited to chat with him. Regardless, its a long (REALLY LONG) and fun episode. We hope you join, and we look forward to seeing many of you at some of our off season meet ups this summer.
Carolina Hurricanes President Don Waddell joins Mike and Derek to discuss the current state of the Canes. We talk Dundon's philosophy, what fans can expect going forward, and get his feelings on the Thrashers finally winning their first playoff game this season. Listen for your tailgate invite, #CheatMail, and this weeks delightful @BottleMixx beer review. Can't wait to see everyone at the season ending tailgate on 4/7!
The GM is gone, the playoff hopes are gone, the team is injured, and the boys are back for a podcast. While we don't turn down the GM job this week, we do discuss whats going on at 1400 Edwards Mill Road both on the ice and in the front office. Is the GM fiasco overblown? Will BP give Zykov first line minutes? Can the boys do a podcast in under 40 minutes? Take a listen for all these answers and more, including #CheatMail and your BottleMixx beer review of the week.
The boys are still recovering after new owner Tom Dundon removed Ron Francis as the General Manager of the Canes. We dive into the what, why, and what's next. Lots of business on this weeks pod, but we hope you enjoy it. Good news, the Bottlemixx beer review is on point as always, and we come in well under the 80 mins we've hit the last couple of weeks.
The trade deadline is scheduled to happen... wait, what? The trade deadline already happened? We got a McKegg outta the deal??? Alright then, let's tap another edition of the podcast and unravel what did and didn't happen. Luckily, @steph_smash drops by to help us chat some good stuff w/ her new graphic novel Kicking Ice (check it out, seriously, its awesome). Also, Ashley McLachlan, one of our live podcast raffle winners is in studio to discuss why the Canes have stunk since we beat her beloved Kings. We close out the episode talking about this weekends big tailgate celebrating Carters Jersey tour and do our Bottlemixx beer review because wow is that needed right now. Enjoy folks, we promise to keep it shorter next week.
There comes a point in every season when the pressure becomes too much and the madness sets in. This week, during the NJ Devils game, it just became too much for Mike and lets just say this might be his most cathartic podcast ever. Cory Lavalette from North State Journal joins us in studio to keep the podcast above board. It didn't work. That said, we had a lot of fun talking what could be, what should have been, and where we can go from here. Thanks for listening.
Two great guests this week: Dar Saraceni from LightHouse Hockey joins us to discuss Metro division craziness and Johnny Tavares. Then, Matt Somma from Calm Before The Storm joins us to discuss Canes prospects and what to expect in terms of call ups. We also discuss Tiger Beat. It doesnt go well. We drink an amazing beer from Epic Brewing as part of our Bottlemixx beer review, and we drop some FMK knowledge in Cheatmail. Thanks as always for listening. Please subscribe on your platform of choice and never miss an episode.
This week while the team has been busy stealing win, and Tom Dundon has been stealing our hearts, we've been lining up great guests. Former Cane great and current San Jose Sharks pre-game analyst Bret Hedican drops by to discuss the upcoming tilt vs. the Sharks. Luke DeCock then joins us to discuss the immediate impact Tom Dundon has made on the triangle sports scene. We take your #Cheatmail, and drink another great beer from @Bottlemixx. Thanks for listening, and please thank our guests for taking time out of their day to join us.
