The Instigator Podcast is a Buffalo Sabres and NHL podcast hosted by Chris and Tyler of Two in the Box. The Instigator discusses hot topics in the hockey world as they apply to the Sabres and the entire NHL.
The Instigator Podcast - Fabric of the Game with Chris Creamer and Todd Radom
Chris Creamer and Todd Radom join the show to discuss their new book Fabric of the Game. We discuss some of the excellent stories in the encyclopedic book about the NHL's uniform and logo history. They also share some great stories from their careers, their personally favorite uniforms and logos and even some thoughts on the NHL's Reverse Retro uniforms.
The Instigator Podcast - Reverse Retro Edition
The NHL's Reverse Retro collection is here and Tyler and Chris go deep on their favorite (and least favorite) designs of the new uniforms. They also discuss the Sabres entry to the collection and their excitement over the new addition. Also on the docket is a discussion over the uncertainty surrounding the start of the 2020-21 season.
The Instigator Podcast 9.39 - Offseason Update with Joe Yerdon
Joe Yerdon joins the show yet again as we discuss the Sabres work at the draft and free agency. We touch on how Taylor Hall will impact the roster and whether or not his acquisition gives the Sabres enough fire power to take the next step. Jack Quinn is on the table as well as we run through the draft and the tepid reaction to Quinn's selection.
The Instigator Podcast 9.38 - Draft Round Table with Expected Buffalo
Chad and Anthony from Expected Buffalo and Die By The Blade joined the show for our first ever draft round table. We discuss our preferred targets for the Sabres at eighth overall and how the top of the draft may shake out.
The Instigator Podcast 9.37 - Staal Trade and What's Next for the Sabres
We break down the Sabres trade for Eric Staal, discuss what might come next for the team and touch on the hiring of Mike Weber and Adam Mair in Rochester. We also run through the tough situation in Arizona and some of the odd decisions made by Jim Rutherford in Pittsburgh.
The Instigator Podcast 9.36 - Balancing the Sabres Internal Budget
Reports that the Sabres are expected to operate with an internal budget this season were greeted with trepidation. Reports that the budget could sit as low as $70 million were greeted with outright anger. We discuss the ramifications such a restrictive budget could have and whether or not we believe the Sabres could actually pull that off (spoiler: we don't). We also touch on news from around the NHL as the league inches closer to crowning a champion.
