Hi there! Oh, has it been awhile since we’ve done a podcast? That’s hardly been mentioned, strange.

Anywho, we’re back on the once-or-twice a week train for the remainder of the season, starting today, when we were joined by Sean Gentille, national NHL writer for The Sporting News (I recommend you click his name and follow him on Twitter). His official title there should really be That Dude, as he kinda takes care of all things puck.

We had a good chat today, covering:

* The US team actually being good enough to have notable snubs

* How “big ice” seems to have dominated selection discussion

* Rick Nash, Jimmy Howard and Marty St. Louis

* Sweden’s kinda scary

* Russia made some weird picks

* And much more!

I even answered a few tweets at the end, so, fun all around.

  1. Lol, you denizens of the Great White North crack me up. The US team is “actually” good enough to have notable snubs? You’d think that Canada’s “greatest hockey team ever” in Vancouver didn’t need a fluke goal in overtime to win the gold medal against what in comparison must have been the Bad News Bears of Olympic hockey. Your arrogance blinds you, Master Yoda! Wait, are we Palpatine? Whatever. Double the pride, twice the fall!

    • Hey now, Gentille’s an American, and those comments are called “jokes.” Though in fairness, they weren’t great.

      • I think I was serious, actually. God bless the USA, tho.

      • Haha, of course, just gearing up here for Nationalism on Ice :) Many American hockey fans would maybe privately admit that they wished they lived in a hockey Mecca like Canada. Some of us are even proud to know the lyrics to the national anthem. But all that is on hold till after Sochi :)

  3. Having never heard Gentille speak before, he sounds like he’s about 8 months away from being able to legally drink

  4. This just makes me want to dig up old episodes of the Glambourn podcast. That time you guys tried to name players for the Blues was thrill a minute.
