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.
It was a royal rumble of an All Star weekend, and we're here to bring you some hockey fun to kick off the week. Before the Canes kick off their eight game home stand in February, join Mike, JC, and Tom as they discuss All Star weekend, take your cheatmail, and more.
Happy Dundon Day everyone! This week Mike and Derek are elated that new ownership has arrived in Raleigh. We discuss the immediate impact Mr. Dundon can make on this team and the market, while lamenting Alex Ovechkin's prowess. We take your #CheatMail questions, we rock thru a pretty darn tasty BottleMixx Beer Review, and lots more. Thanks as always for listening, and we hope to see you at the live Cheaters Never Win next week, 1/20 at 1PM at BottleMixx here in Raleigh.
Are the Canes back? Are good things happening? What should we do with our hands? All questions that we attempt to answer on this weeks pod along with the help of @MikeManiscalco from Fox Sports Carolinas. We discuss the current state of the Canes playoff chances, dream of 91, and take some great #CheatMail questions. We end as always w/ our BottleMixx beer review and its the perfect beer for this time of year from Burial Brewing. Thanks for the listen, and make plans now to join us for the live #CheatersNeverWin at BottleMixx in Raleigh on 1/20.
