Entries with the tag: power play from wayne gretzky's
I was just listening to the great Hockey This Morning on NHL Home Ice and heard from the boss himself, Joe Thistel, that there are going to be a few changes made to both the NHL Home Ice programming and NHL Network programming.
For starters, NHL Live will no longer be heard on NHL Home Ice as it has found a home on the NHL Network from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. EST. In its usual 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. time slot on NHL Home Ice, Gord Stellick, former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager and now a terrific sports radio host, will have his own show. Stellick has done some guest hosting this season on the Power Play from Wayne Gretzky’s and has done a terrific job along with Scott Laughlin.
Speaking of the Power Play from Wayne Gretzky’s, the show will no longer be on the NHL Network from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. EST as NHL Live has now taken over that slot. If you are a listener of NHL Home Ice, have no fear because Scott Laughlin will still be doing the show and providing us with excellent hockey content on a daily basis.
These may not sound like big changes but for NHL Home Ice, it certainly is as it has been carrying NHL Live for quite awhile. With that said, NHL Home Ice is by far and away one of the top sports channels on XM/Sirius and does a terrific job of bringing us puck heads all-around great hockey content 24/7.
As always, it is a pleasure for me to bring you the latest e-mail interviews I have done whether it is with a hockey writer, analyst, blogger, author or radio host.
Today, I’d like to bring you the latter as Scott Laughlin, host of “Power Play from Wayne Gretzky’s” on NHL Home Ice was kind enough to take time out of his very busy schedule to give us his thoughts on the NHL at the All-Star break from general thoughts, surprising teams in the Eastern and Western Conference, and what NHL Home Ice listeners can look forward to as the league heads towards the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
PH: We are just past the half way point of the 2010-11 NHL season. What are some of your general thoughts?
SL: The Western Conference continues to intrigue me with all of the teams within striking distance of a playoff berth. Also, interested to specifically see whether or not Los Angeles and San Jose can be all we think in the stretch run and what they may or may not do at the deadline.
