FOI 02/04/09: Fighting In Hockey; More

This past edition of Fire On Ice, we talked about the flames’ current 2-game losing streak, as well as their dismal road record. Also brought up was GM Darryl Sutter’s visit to the team’s dressing room after losing 3-1 to the Dallas Stars, their second loss in as many nights (they lost Monday to the Avalanche of Colorado 4-3).

After the beak, the live audience was treated to a video montage of hockey fights spanning the decades and set to Black Sabbath’s Iron Man. Those of you listening to the podcast can check out the video right here on this page in the video player located right underneath.

After the video, talk turned to fighting in hockey and in the NHL, as well as all levels of the game.

After a bit of silly fun to start off the second segment, we re-played the “Tom Hicks call”, before getting back into the topics on the night, such as who really deserves to be in the NHL All-Star line-up and who probably shouldn’t (most of the Canadiens’ players) and took your calls!

Fire On Ice 12/06/08: Avery, Team Play, NHL Locations and Dumb-Asses

This special edition of Fire On Ice took place this past Saturday, december 6th, as a result of the loss of internet during the original airing last Wednesday night. The first 30 minutes of the program presented what happened Wednesday, with talk about “The Sean Avery Incident”. A caller named Spug argued against a suspension for Avery for his comments prior to Tuesday night’s game between the Flames and the Dallas Stars. Talk turned to a comparison between hockey athletes and athletes from other pro sports. This in turn led to a discussion of how the NHL doesn’t work south of the Mason-Dixon line of the USA, with discussion on where would be a good venue for an NHL team.
When we came back live, Avery’s suspension status was updated with the same caller clarifying his stance, saying he was atrguing against the term “indefinite suspension”. with that, a conference between Spug and Tony — both listeners — further discussed options for NHL teams, including placing one in Saskatchewan, perhaps Moose Jaw, of all places!
Of course we unveiled the latest Dumb Ass list as well! All this and more on the latest edition of Fire On Ice.
Remember, this Wednesday’s Fire On Ice webcast will immediately follow Calgary’s game against the Detroit Red Wings! See you in the chatroom then!

From there the show officially kicked off with talk about Tuesday’s game against the L.A. Kings in the Flames’ 6-2- victory, form the team continuing to buy into the current system, to Craig Conroy’s 4 points, To Jarome Iginla.

Also looked at was Iginla’s percieved invidibility this season so far, despite being on pace for a 50 goal season yet again. Saddledome fans were discussed, the apparent trade rumour of Adrian Aucoin, Mike Cammalleri’s ice time and more!
