Sara Civian covers the Carolina Hurricanes for The Athletic and we discussed the future of the NHL season, covering a team with interesting personalities, Bunch of Jerks and the good and bad of Twitter. Also what is it like writing without live sports? Jersey drafting? Sara hails from Boston so I asked her about being a beantown fan and she lives in North Carolina so we discussed The Last Dance as well. The Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 Topic is what 3 athletes you would want to see a Last Dance type series about and our UFFS poll question is about the best sports cities in the USA.

Eric Duhatschek is a Hockey Hall of Fame writer who has covered big time hockey events from the Miracle on Ice to the Canada Cups and Stanley Cups. We discussed what may or may not happen with the current NHL season as well as a look back at the 1987 Canada Cup which just aired on TSN this past weekend. Eric shares the same eye condition as fellow HHOF member Mike Gartner, who amazingly had 17 straight 30 goal seasons, with basically one good eye. Eric has also covered the BOA from the beginning to now and how Matthew Tkachuk and Zack Kassian have helped to spark the rivalry again. He's also a big music lover so we chatted about bands as well as the changing sports media landscape. The Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 Topic is unbreakable records in sports, while the UFFS poll question is about the future of the the NHL season and what matters more to you as a NHL fan. Something new to the show is the weekly tribute, this week unfortunately is for my cousin Kim who passed away recently, but in the future pretty much anything can be paid tribute to.

Rob Tychkowski is one of the funniest (too funny for some bday parties) and best sports writers around. He's covered the Oilers since '89 and he also isn't afraid to tell you how he feels. Perfect podcast guest. Some funny stories and observations as well as a lot of NHL and Oilers talk. Plus Tiger Vs Phil. The Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 is about your favourite athletes of all time and the UFFS Poll Question is about ticket prices when live sports return. We'll have One Timers with Tych later in the week and some SAM Soundbites along the way.

If we can't watch live baseball we can read about the past right? This week author Jason Turbow joined me to discuss 3 of his baseball books as well as what might or might not happen this MLB season. I'm Dodgers fan and just finished listening to the audiobook of They Bled Blue, so it dominated the conversation, but we also discussed Dynastic, Bombastic, Fantastic, his book about the Oakland A's and The Baseball Codes about the unwritten rules in baseball. The conversation is filled with so many interesting stories. Our Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 is about your most despised teams as a kid. The UFFS poll question is about the length of this MLB season. As a baseball bonus, there are two $40 GCs up for grabs courtesy of Ross Flats, where you can get some cool old school Edmonton sports gear.

With the NHL on hold I spoke with NHL Agent Gerry Johannson, President and CEO of The Sports Corporation. Gerry's clients range from Carey Price to Ryan Getzlaf to Brayden Point just to name a few and we discussed the future of the NHL season. What is being an agent like at the NHL draft of on trade deadline day? We discussed quite a bit. From becoming a players agent to negotiating contracts and the awkward call asking a GM for a trade.

I met Colby Armstrong when he was a 17 year old rookie with the Red Deer Rebels and I was covering the team for RDTV and was able to follow his career until he retired and has transitioned into broadcasting. We had a lot of laughs on this episode and explored the uniqueness that he played with 3 first overall picks in Alexandre Daigle, Mario Lemieux and Sidney Crosby. We discussed how he's home schooling his kids, winning a Memorial Cup with the Red Deer Rebels, his NHL career and what the NHL can do if anything to save this season.
Our Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 Topic was sporting events you would watch and the UFFS poll question was about awarding the Stanley Cup. You can watch the show on our YouTube channel and hear past episodes at www.SportsandMore.ca.

This week Rob Schremp joined me to chat about the world we are currently living in and when the former 1st round NHL draft pick thinks we'll see hockey again. The Memorial Cup was recently cancelled and it's a tournament he won with a powerhouse London Knights team, so we relived that and his memories of being in Edmonton during the 2006 Oilers run to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. Rob is launching a one on one coaching program using video and a nice stable of coaches for both men and women, boys and girls. It's called 44 Vision Hockey and will be ready to go in April, which will give a lot of hockey players a chance to train with professionals from all levels. I also asked Rob about two guys he played with, Doug Weight and Corey Perry. The Ultimate Franchise Fantasy Sports Top 3 Topic is what are the hardest trophies/cups to win. The UFFS poll question is about what is most impressive from Selanne's 76 rookie season, Fuhr's 79 games played season, Coffey's 48 goal season or Sittler's 10-point night.

Our Top 3 Topic was about dysfunctional franchises while our poll question was who takes the Pacific Division? Enjoy! Subscribe! Review!

One of the most talented sportscasters has taken his game to the big stage in the United States. Nabil Karim who was terrific on Sportscentre at TSN is now anchoring Sportscenter on ESPN. However his current career path wasn't his first choice and there were tough moments. We discussed the NBA All Star Game, tributes to Kobe and similarities to the Humboldt Broncos bus crash tragedy as well as Connor McDavid's popularity with our neighbours to the south.
