Man awesome playoff games and we're listening to Toronto talk about Kap trades and social/political issues. I understand the importance of the issue but, this week the headlines im interested in have been buried.

Stewie hates the cliche's but every episode says "attention to details" "puck on net" 😂

Wish this podcast could ALWAYS be led by Jeff Marek! Love the fun all three guys have together! When Jeff is replaced with David Amber, it's way less pleasant to listen to. It feels like he belittles Justin and Anthony's comment or he's above everyone else... It does not feel like they're "a team" just like when Jeff is there..

Not specific to this episode, but just feedback overall from a Calgary fan living in Denver... I really enjoy the perspectives from guys that have played at the top level. I've also gained an appreciation for Burke's take on subjects. I don't always agree, but respect him explaining his positions and his candidness. Despite your appease to the Toronto audience, this has become a staple for my afternoon commute, which is typically only 35-45 minutes. The only reason I've ever wished to have a longer commute is so I could get through all 90 minutes of each episode before getting home. Keep the quality going in 2020!

why do the care so much about "Canadian teams" 1/2 the guys on every NHL team are from Canada anyway. You didn't see us whining about the Blue Jay's winning the WS 2 years in a row.
