Fresh off the latest offseason signings of Patrick Wiercioch, Erik Condra, Corey Cowick, and Joe Corvo @creecher1200 and I jumped into the studio to rap on the latest Senators news that has caught our attention.
So put your headphones on, get inked with that decorative navel tattoo you've always wanted, and savour the auditory goodness.
In this episode we spoke to Pass It To Bulis and Puck Daddy editor Harrison Mooney (@HarrisonMooney) about the quickly approaching Ottawa-Vancouver Heritage Classic. And no, even though much has been made about Ottawa's thrifty internal budget, just because this is a throwback matchup, in no way, shape or form does this mean that the Sens will borrow a page out of the Dawson City Nuggets playbook and cost efficiently dogsled to the coast.
Also joining us on the show was Rob Vollman (@robvollmanNHL) proprietor of HockeyAbstract.com and contributor to Hockey Prospectus and ESPN Insider. Fresh off the release of his inaugural Hockey Abstract book (available on PDF or paperback via Amazon), Rob joins us to talk about his intriguing forecast that projects the Senators to have the best odds of winning the 2013/14 President's Trophy. Even if you're not the most statistically inclined hockey enthusiast, it's a worthwhile read that could spurn some debate or simply introduce you to a new way of looking at the sport.
As a forewarning, Creech and I had recorded an outro, but for whatever reason, the audio got cut off after three to four minutes, so I just decided to scrap it altogether. My apologies for the abrupt nature of the podcast's conclusion, but this episode will end at the conclusion of the Rob Vollman interview.
