Episode #106 – Pride (In The Name of Demko)

The band is back together! Well, except Dave, but Ryan, Geeta and P Mac are all in the same room again! They’re talking about the 2nd round of the WHL Playoffs and the Kelowna Rockets and the Victoria Royals’ series that Ryan was covering.

They touch on Andrew Shaw’s use of a homophobic slur towards an NHL referee and gestures that got him both suspended and fined. They talk about the severity of the suspension and why it’s necessary in this day and age.

They also look at Thatcher Demko’s signing with the Canucks. There was some concern the hot shot Boston College goaltending prospect and 2nd round Canucks draft pick would not sign with the team and leave egg on the face on GM Jim Benning. They look at his summer plans and where he will wind up in the Canucks’ system next season.

The gang looks at the Philly fans and the wild and unfortunate game 3 in Philadelphia as the Flyers and Capitals come together to calm a hostile crowd!

Finally, they look at Jonathan Drouin’s amazing turnaround in Tampa. From being the black sheep of the organization. Sitting out the season after demanding a trade and off ice behaviour problems to playing a solid 200 foot game, the type of game Jon Cooper and Steve Yzerman wanted from him all along.
