Pros

These guys are the best. By far the smartest in fantasy hockey. But the attempt at calling “clipping” a show for us super fans regurgitating the last episodes content isn’t working.

mcarlos78 ,

Great show!

This is a great show but holy crap! How many Cuban coffees and Red Bull’s do these 2 drink!! They talk so super fast you gotta pay attention!! But get A LOT of info out! Awesome

Moshnroll ,

best fantasy hockey podcast

Every week I look forward to the “YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEAH! WELCOME EVERYBODY!!!” That starts off each episode of the best fantasy hockey podcast around. That being said I hope they don’t get too big cause I don’t want anyone in my leagues listening.
