Interview with CBC’s Jim Hughson

So much going on in the puck world these days and I couldn’t think of a better person to sort it all out with than Hockey Night in Canada’s Jim Hughson. Jim was kind enough to give up a good chunk of his time and we covered a few topics on the audio clip below, including:

  • The Hockey Hall of Fame inductions are happening this weekend.  Jim reminds us of how fast a player Glenn Anderson was back in his day, plus Pavel Bure‘s name comes up in the discussion.
  • What Does October Teach Us? That if you’re a member of the New York Rangers with dreams of a Stanley Cup, statistically you might have history on your side.  Plus some words on why the NYR had to say goodbye to Brendan Shanahan and why Markus Naslund has found a perfect fit at MSG.
  • Head Injuries: Should there be a special penalty for hits to the head? The issue came up again this week. There are no simple solutions, but Hughson shares his thoughts on the topic.

Plus a few more odds and ends.  Listen to the complete conversation below.

 

You can listen to the full interview either by downloading the audio [mp3] or listening on the player below.

And of course you can always catch Jim on Hockey Night in Canada and read his blog at CBC.ca.


My sincere thanks to Jim Hughson for being a gracious (and great!) interview subject.
