We’re Greg Wyshynski of ESPN, Sean "Down Goes Brown" McIndoe of The Athletic and Ryan Lambert of Yahoo Sports and this is a hockey podcast, in the sense that we talk about hockey, both on the ice and about fan culture. That’s the “puck.” This is also a podcast about movies, TV, fast food, life lessons and general idiocy. That’s the “soup.” Unless you ordered the minestrone.
Early Season Panic!
The boys discuss teams off to great starts (Buffalo!) and horrible starts (Chicago!) as they whip around the NHL. Plus, the Evander Kane saga's latest mess, Jack Eichel update, a rant about the salary cap, NHL dress codes, wrestling finishers during hockey fights and the most overrated, underrated, favorite and least favorite Halloween costumes.
Wayne Gretzky, Very Famous
The boys welcome Dimitri Filipovic of EP Rinkside to discuss the first week of hockey on TNT and ESPN, from bad abbreviations to Wayne Gretzky Mania; the big contracts handed out to Charlie McAvoy, Brady Tkachuk, Nick Suzuki and others; early impressions of NHL teams; Alex Ovechkin; "Needle in a Timestack"; The MLB Guardians Project and baseball playoffs! Sponsored by Manly Bands, BetterHelp and Mascaped.
NHL Season Preview 2021!
The boys break down all 32 NHL teams in their big season preview. Plus, the Robin Lehner Twitter thread that could change the NHL, the Jack Eichel drama, Evander Kane's COVID violation, the Canucks signings, the GM hot seat and they play another thrilling edition of "Who He Play For?" Sponsored by Brooklinen and Raycon!
NHL Over/Under Predictions!
The boys predict point totals for all 32 NHL teams based on the preseason over/unders and preview the 2021-22 season along the way. Plus, remembering Norm MacDonald, ranking Weezer songs, killing plants, TNT hockey coverage, vaccinations in hockey and the oddity of Terminator models. Sponsored by Draft Kings, Brooklinen and Mack Weldon!
The boys discuss the NHL going back to the Olympics (maybe), the Hurricanes signing away Jesperi Kotkaniemi in an act of vengeance, the future of Sidney Crosby and Patrice Bergeron, Pierre Dorion, David Backes, the Eichel trade talks, The Matrix and a game show that marries the MTV VMAs and the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Sponsored by Draft Kings and Manly Bands.
The boys discuss the retirement of Henrik Lundqvist and his place in hockey history; the Arizona Coyotes' latest mess; Tuukka Rask says Boston or bust; some tragic hockey news; Auston Matthews, video game cover boy (again); the Spider-Man trailer and Loki; our book recommendations; and an overrated/underrated on wrestling returns after C.M. Punk hit AEW.
Not the best ever but still great
First time long time. MVSW was great. Puck Soup 1.0 was brilliant. This version of Puck Soup isn’t quite as funny but Greg and Sean carry the show whilst Lambert complains about everything. Still the best hockey podcast.
Hockey ….. and Music?!?
I normally do not enjoy hockey podcasts that go into pop culture segments and if you hadn't mentioned Simple Pages when discussing Weezer’s Green Album you would have lost me. But alas, you have that great song it’s due. Oh and you also did a great job breaking down win totals for the season. Keep up the great work.
Simply the best
My favorite hockey podcast hands down, the best, look forward to it every week, I even save it so i can take my time and enjoy it uninterrupted on the weekend, pair with some coffee and a dutch? Chef’s kiss reference!
