Great pod!

No offence - only when Elliotte is not on the podcast, this feels different than 32 thoughts. Jeff’s depth of knowledge carries this; I very much enjoy 32, but, more Marek with other guests would be great.

Must listen

Great player interviews in the off season makes each more fun to watch and follow. The chemistry between Jeff and Elliotte makes that segment so entertaining. Great interviews, love the segments on goalies and also the behind the curtain of the, often these days reprehensible, business of hockey. I listen to every episode.
