    I think he completely forgot what he was asked one a possible Tanev trade came up and he talked about the "outstanding season" Juolevi was having in Finland. :laugh:

    And yeah, it seems to be really hard to be a NHL GM.

    When did TSN1040 change their website? Now, they have all their radio stations recording in one list after users hit the "load more" button.

    Of those 3 hours, how may minutes of content is actually produced? Take away commercials, product placement reads, intros with sound f/x, talking about what will be coming up, sports updates, inside jokes, banter between the hosts, more jokes with the guests about their zany routines after they are introduced.....12 minutes per hour?

    Sports radio is a dying media. They dance a fine line of advertising which keeps them alive, but not so much that people complain and notice it's taking up actual listening time. If they didn't have so much, it probably wouldn't survive, but it's also whats turning people off from listening.

    Especially that Telus ad. Don't use up all the memes dad! ugh.

    And when he has a story he can run with it that generates a lot of fan interest like Pettersson may not sign here there's more "content" than usual. Get the point?

    I turned on 650 this morning instead of listening to music.

    Kenward in regards to questionable moves the Hurricanes have made - Paraphrasing, but he said stuff along the lines of "Jacob Slavin should not be making over 5 million dollars a year. He's not an upper echelon player - he's just an NHL player." "Faulk is their best defenseman"

    Noped out of there real quick.

    Just going to continue listening to Sekeres and Price in the afternoon and then avoiding all other Vancouver sports radio.

    We don't really have any knowledgeable hockey hosts on either 1040 or 650. It's guys who never really played any sports at the elite level (certainly not hockey) talking about hockey. It's their opinion, or what they hear from others. I would really like to have hosts (at least one of the two guys, who are regular) who were actually hockey players! I like when Dave Tomlinson is on 1040. He's excellent.

    Kenward is a knob. No surprise here. What an absolute farce of a take.

    Hahahah.

    It's sad because for casual fans who have never heard of Slavin before, that's an actual lasting takeaway they may have.

    :scared::scared: Can someone point me to a link online where I can hear this?? :laugh:

    Botchford has acknowledged my strip on Twitter itself plenty of times, of course, but he’s never mentioned it before (so far as I know) in audio, so this is very exciting for me!

    I can neither confirm nor deny that I am Ryan Johnson, @vancityluongo, although I would note that I have been using this moniker online since Johnson was a UND student, so there’s that... :laugh:

    And the stated reason was that he seems to have real insight on how things happened inside the front office which is mind-blowing

    :laugh: Holy ****, too funny.

    And verifiably lives in Ottawa... it’s the perfect cover! The commute is a massive pain, though.

    This whole 76ers Bryan Colangelo thing is even funnier because the hardcore Benning supporters think the idea that any management would ever feed into social media and forums is stupid.

    Yet here we are.

    More and more clear.

    The fact that a seemingly exaggerated comic take on Benning's stupidity could be mistaken for planted inside information because of how accurate it was in terms of how the team actually worked is legitimately the funniest thing I've ever heard. And also the saddest.

    Edit : And also great fodder for a meta-strip.
