This week on the podcast, Marc Dumont from Eyes on the Prize joins me to do some playoff predictions for the second round, and then we go deep into what went wrong with the Canadiens this year, and whether they can recover from it.

We also referenced an article on EOTP from Kyle Medeiros on the Canadiens’ inability to break in drafted players, which you can read here.

Arune Singh joins me once again, and originally we were going to talk about Fox’s X-Men movies this week, but since Logan came out and I haven’t seen it yet, we felt it wouldn’t be right to do it without being completist.

I did however, see John Wick 2, so that’s the topic for this week’s podcast.

Before we got int that though, we had to touch on the firing of Michel Therrien and hiring of Claude Julien, the trade deadline, and the return of P.K. Subban to the Bell Centre.

After a few minutes of hockey, we get right into the John Wick 2 analysis. Beware: Here lie spoilers.

It’s Ice Level reunion number two on the podcast this week, as I welcome Conor McKenna onto the new show. Conor and I start by discussing the Habs recent struggles, from injuries to offseason preparation, and what we think this season will ultimately be.

Is Phillip Danault a fit for the top-six of the future for the Canadiens? Did they do enough in the offseason to insulate themselves from injury? Conor and I get into it.

After that, we move on to what everyone expected; Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire. Who are the best POV characters in the book? Who are the worst? What do we think will ultimately happen? It’s all in there.

After going through some Netflix and TV suggestions, Conor and I tackle your email questions!

Episode 5 – Arune Singh and Comics

After a couple weeks off to enjoy the holidays, the podcast is back with special guest Arune Singh, former executive director of TV communications for Marvel, and current VP of marketing for BOOM Studios.

Arune is a Habs fan from Toronto now living in Los Angeles, so of course we had to talk about the Montreal Canadiens this season, the trade of P.K. Subban to the Nashville Predators, and feelings about the team going forward.

From there we moved on from hockey to talk comics, touching on Arune’s history with Marvel and love of DC, as well as adaptations from page to screen, small and big.

We debate 90’s cartoons, Fast and the Furious, and our favourite comic runs, before getting into your questions, Netflix suggestions and tips for comics to pick up.

Episode 3 – Chris Curtis and First Nations Issues

This week on the podcast I talked to Christopher Curtis, award nominated city reporter for the Montreal Gazette, and former rookie Montreal Canadiens’ beat reporter. I’ve been wanting to get Chris on a podcast for the better part of two years, so I was excited for this one.

Chris chronicles his only year on the Habs beat, sings the praises of Eric Engels, and explains his feud with Canadiens coach Michel Therrien. We also get into the nature of sports reporting compared to regular journalism, and whether or not we should be satisfied with the way things work.

Shifting away from hockey, we had a long discussion on the issues and perceptions surrounding Canadian First Nations, and the long term impacts of abuses like the Residential School System that forcibly took children from their parents’ homes.

From there, we got a little crazy looking into the future of what we might face as a country and a society, before delving back into hockey, and ending the podcast with some movie and TV suggestions.

A special thank you goes out to patrons of the podcast: Edgar Gionet, Denis Heldens, David Mussell, Sonja Mc, Shannon Quinn, Aaron Maiden, David Auger, and Stefan Wolejszo. Next podcast I will give you all a shout out!
