The good the bad and the bowman

You can hear the love for the Hawks these two men have even at their most critical they avoid being morose about the road ahead for our beloved B’ Hawks. I do think a third person sitting in once a month would mix it up nicely!
The Stan Bowman interview / internal monologue/ projection/ p.r. tour/whatever he’s doing, is definitely worth a listen tho. Especially if you want to get an idea of how to sound like an Olive Garden G.M.
I hope that Crow flying to Jersey isn’t a death knell tho!

Stick to hockey

The hockey conversation can be good when they want it to be. Laz clearly hates doing podcasts on hockey and only want to talk about some social justice warriors crap. Im here for hockey, I pay a subscription for hockey I don’t care about your agenda to crucify everyone. Scott keep up the good work!

where's Hossa? ,

Difficult to listen to

Powers stammers incessantly and has few original ideas. They both talk over one another constantly. A wasted opportunity
