The Backhand Shelf Podcast is hitting it’s stride, we had a good time on this one.

Today we were pleased to welcome Dave Semenko to the show (1st overall guest pick, he should be honoured!), who discussed “did Gretzky ever get benched” (once), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, what pro scouts look for, enforcers today and much more.

Prior to our chat, Pizzo and I discuss:

*Ovechkin not getting the tap in the big final minutes

*Thornton and Torts back and forth

*Bryzgalov shutting out the media

*By the way Semenko went three rounds with Ali holy shit —–>

* and

*And we introduce the game “Stat Geeks” where we make predictions on player and team stats. Enjoy!

As always, it will post to iTunes momentarily.
