THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 83
MacKinnon Priorities, and Mrazek Down
It is almost Christmas time and this episode is not really filled with Christmas cheer…it is filled with debate, controversy and some comedy. Brad Burud and Blake Friars talk Nathan MacKinnon….there is no debate here. We both think he is the top player in the NHL and we are happy as hell he is willing to take less money to win a Stanley Cup. Shouldn’t that be the goal of every pro athlete. Then it is time to debate the Thornton one-punch on Petr Mrazek… How did this happen, why did this happen and we do not pull any punches on how we believe the NHL botched this one. Then it is time to drive Black crazy and discuss teams with the most top 10 picks and how many of them are successful. Then we go around the league and discuss Makar, Hall, Hockey Culture, Tkachuk, Hynes, and Injuries..lots of injuries. It is time for hockey talk!
Blake Friars brings the Canadian approach to the show. The Bienfait, Saskatchewan native grew up playing hockey for 16 years. The goalie is also a long-time Roberto Luongo fan, and claims the Vancouver Canucks as his favorite team. Blake brings the millennial approach to the show. He is candid in his approach, and creates numerous laughs.
