Episode 21 guest Bobby Ryan of the Ottawa Senators talks honestly on his challenges that led to taking time away from the game and shares what his 100-day journey through recovery back to the NHL was like and much more.
Ray and Darren start off hitting on a number of hot topics including the precarious hold the Canucks have on their playoff spot, and Minny’s incredible rebound into a legit playoff race under Dean Evason’s coaching. In this week’s edition of #ThroatPunch, Ray nominates certain media’s tunnel vision around their hometown nominees for the Hart Trophy. While Darren nominates Sens owner Eugene Melnyk following the surprising firing of his CEO Jim Little. During ‘Between The Benches’ the guys talk the NHL’s ‘skate in the air’ tweak to the offside rule. ‘Ask Ray & Dregs’ sees questions including one from a life-long Habs fan pissed that Montreal decided to keep head coach Claude Julien instead of making a change. The excellent music on this episode is provided by Tony Ferraro and his pals.
