I had the absolute pleasure of having Arpon Basu on the podcast to talk about his new venture to bring The Athletic, the prominent subscription sports journalism service, to Montreal this September, and we got into a wide range of topics.

From what kind of content The Athletic MTL will be, to the challenges it faces in defining itself in both languages, to how the Montreal Canadiens have changed and what to expect next season, to the tragedy in Charlottesville that has shown how serious the Neo-Nazi threat is right now in North America.

Also we talked a little Netflix to bring it back to Ice Level days. We went off on tangents about Subban, Weber, Plekanec, and Pacioretty, and ended up chatting for nearly two hours. Enjoy!

On the podcast this week Arune Singh is back on with me to talk about the first two movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, but before we got into that we needed to talk about P.K. Subban, his personal success, and the perception of him around the NHL.

With the hockey stuff out of the way, we got into two movies from the early 2000’s that frankly, aren’t very good, but spawned a powerhouse franchise. What about them was so special that people were compelled to keep coming back?

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.

The man, the beard, the legend; PDOcast host Dimitri Filipovic joined me to talk about the early returns on the 2017 NHL playoffs, going through it series by series, but not before I tell an embarrassing story.

Episode 9 – Eric Engels

On today’s podcast Sportsnet’s Eric Engels joins the show to talk about the Montreal Canadiens post trade deadline and coaching change.

For a good portion of the podcast Eric and I discuss Max Pacioretty’s evolution as a hockey player and a leader, and what that means for the Canadiens going forward.

We also talk about why the Habs’ powerplay still looks awful, why Alexei Emelin keeps getting chances to play, whether Charles Hudon will get the chance he’s earned, and why Eric is wrong about pecan pie.

Episode 8 – Steve Dangle

This week I felt like talking about the Toronto Maple Leafs, so it was time to bring on Steve Dangle and attempt to stay on topic. From Filppula refusing to be traded to the Maple Leafs, to the trials and tribulations of Morgan Rielly, we looked at all the issues currently surrounding Toronto’s least successful professional sports franchise.

We also talked a little Habs and Lightning, if you’re interested in that.

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.
