Hockey fans already know the name, but this is not the blog. From Sportsnet, 32 Thoughts: The Podcast with Jeff Marek and NHL Insider Elliotte Friedman is a weekly deep dive into the biggest news and interviews from the hockey world.
Hunka Hunka Burning Glove
Elvis Merzlikins joins the podcast! But before that, Jeff and Elliotte discuss the Jason Spezza suspension, player safety, changes in Philadelphia, and the Zegras to Milano goal.
Time Has Come For The Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks fired their head coach and general manager on Sunday. Jeff and Elliotte discuss the changes in western Canada, the timing of them, the hiring of Bruce Boudreau and the impact he may have on the players, and why it was time to move on from Jim Benning.
Houston, We Have a Problem
Jeff and Elliotte discuss the report that the Arizona Coyotes could be for sale, they dissect the situation in Ottawa, discuss the Rob Brind'Amour fine and answer a few listener emails.
Manic Monday Montreal
Jeff and Elliotte discuss the changes in Montreal, the struggling Flyers, Ottawa placing Matt Murray on waivers, Evander Kane finds new representation as he is put on waivers by the Sharks, concerns over the All-Star Game, and Brendan Lemieux biting Brady Tkachuk.
Canucks, Islanders and Stuff(ing)
Jeff and Elliotte wonder if we’ll see changes in Vancouver, how the Islanders are managing their roster around COVID protocol, how the All-Star game might look a bit different this season to limit the exposure to COVID-19 leading into the Olympics, why the Avalanche gave Jared Bednar a two-year extension, hot starts for Alexander Ovechkin and Nazem Kadri, and they answer some of your emails and voicemails.
There's A Lot Going On
Jeff and Elliotte cover off a lot of stories including another tough loss for the Canucks, if there’s something going between Kevin Fiala and the Wild, they provide an update on the Omaha Lancers situation, discuss interest by the Fenway Sports Group in purchasing the Pittsburgh Penguins, and Islanders open their new arena but are hit by heavy COVID-19 protocol.
These guys hold themselves out to be the ultimate in sports journalism. What a joke! While far more important issues plague the NHL, these guys spend their time talking of inane garbage. It’s like a verbal comic book!
Good info from Elliot but…..
This podcast should be called “We don’t have any takes that are not against popular opinion.” Or it could be called “Jeff bores us w endless proverbs.”
Wow, I sure love it
The new artwork looks incredible, and these guys are even better. I can’t think of anyone that I’d rather hear breaking down hockey than these two. Great work!!
