The Instigator |Episode 7

I Hate NHL Bye Week!

Listen to “The Instigator – Episode 7 – I Hate NHL Bye Week!” on Spreaker.

Because of the NHL/NHLPA CBA agreement each NHL team is mandated to have a schedule five day break from games and practices. It was a disaster last year, and this year had its problems also. I hate it for many reasons. It is not going away, but I have a solution to make it easier to deal with.

Brad Burud the owner/editor of the Inside Edge Hockey News. I am a huge fan of hockey, from youth hockey, to junior hockey, and of course professional hockey. I have played, coached, worked as statistician, and watched hockey all of my life. Hockey is not just a game, it is a lifestyle and family. The game of hockey is great! It can bring you nights of great enjoyment. It also brings nights where you feel like your team will never win. I am proud to be a journalist for the greatest game in the world. I have a degree in Business Administration, Psychology from Minot State University. I also have a Hockey General Manager and Scouting, and Sports Communications/Journalism degree from Sports Management Worldwide. I am also a member of the Sports Executives Association. Most of all I am a fan. Hockey is a huge part of my life and my families life.
