NHL fan in the UK

This podcast has definitely lost it's mojo this season. Very repetitive comments from the hosts though I do enjoy the first part of Friday broadcasts with Brian Burke. Lost a couple of stars from my previous rating.

Perfect Pod

I’m a UK hockey fan. So there is zero coverage in our media. This podcast is so good at keeping you up to date so you never feel like you are missing out. Also great to hear some of the insights from the experienced hosts.

Gone downhill

Stewie is about as useful as he was during his time with the Nottingham Panthers.
