Terrific

The strength of The Pipeline Show is the diversity of the leagues covered and the stellar guests that you will hear talk about them. There is no bias between CHL or NCAA. You get USHL and CJHL and NAHL too. Lots of players and coaches and GMs and media as guests. Can’t ask for much more than that.
