Not for me - Mostly Maple Leafs

For Maple Leafs fans. If you are, this is probably a great pod for you!

Can’t do it

Used to love hockey central at noon. Sportsnet turned it into this and I can’t listen anymore. Marek is bad host repeating himself over and over trying to be relatable spewing old time hockey stories for no reason other tot ray and be relevant. Let’s get back to actual hockey people hosting a mid day hockey centric show not a hipster trying to beef up host podcast numbers what a joke this has become

Bit repetitive

Jeff is struggling to fill so much airtime and there s a lot of repetition as well as overlap with content from 32 Thoughts which imho is a better hockey pod. Not a big fan of the interviews. They are pretty canned and reveal little new but I get it fills airtime. I tune in for NHL discussion but am noticing that PWHL content increasing and I get it s affiliated with NHL but it should have its own pod for those interested or is the JM show now an NHL and PWHL pod.
V little talk about NHL ratings or the business side of the game which is unfortunate.
I like the Elliot portions but not Matt Marchese who I find annoying and offers little new. I skip whenever he comes on.
