Ep. 9: The many women in Gordon Bombay’s life

Play

Mike, Tommy and Kevin track Gordon Bombay’s dealings with women through the years and try to figure out what became of his many relationships. They also try to figure out if Bombay ever left behind his playboy ways and settled down.

 

Show Notes:

Minnehaha Park: 10 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. After the podcast, Mike did discover a Minnehaha, Washington, which is right by the Oregon/Washington border. If that was the place Gordon went, the greyhound bus trip makes a whole lot more sense.

Ep. 7: What is the pro potential of every Mighty Duck?

Play

Thanks to an email from one of you, Mike, Tommy and Kevin go through the Mighty Ducks roster and determine the pro potential for each player. Does Conway do enough to get himself drafted? Can Adam Banks put himself in position to be picked No. 1 overall?

 

Show Notes

Guy Germaine’s “superstar looks:”

Andy Miele. Look at those college stats.

Here’s the most recent story of the U.S. women’s national team playing against, and losing to some boys high school teams.

The Josh Hamilton story, for those that don’t know it. 

Mike was wrong about how many high school players were taken in the 2000 draft. There were seven, but only two from Minnesota High Schools. Paul Martin was indeed the first high school player taken when the Devils drafted him in the second round, 62nd overall.

Ep. 6: Who is the Mighty Ducks’ worst player?

Play

Mike, Tommy, Kevin look at the stats, the coaching, the tangibles and the intangibles as they try to figure out which person was the worst player on the Mighty Ducks.

 

Show Notes:

The D2 stats from Reddit user Flargalarg. 

Ken Wu had three points in D2: Two goals and one assists. He does not score in D3.

Goldberg’s save percentage in D2 was actually lower than what Mike said. It was .438.

Ep. 3: Is Eden Hall Academy a good environment?

Play

It’s Episode 3 which means it’s time to talk D3. Mike, Tommy and Kevin talk all about Eden Hall Academy. Is it truly a culture of excess? What’s the reason the fans turned on their varsity team in the JV/Varsity Showdown? Is Dean Buckley slimy, meek or both?

Ep. 2: Team Iceland

Play

It’s Iceland week! Mike, Tommy and Kevin discuss the rise of Icelandic hockey, Wolf Stansson’s coaching, the best Iceland player not named Gunnar Stahl, the controversial Russia game that was the fall of the dynasty and more.

Download in iTunes.

Show Notes:

Here is the Iceland page on icehockey.wikia.com.

According to Hockey Reference, no person born in Iceland has played in the NHL.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Danny Almonte situation.

This podcast was recorded at an earlier date, so the IIHF World Championships are over. Iceland does indeed have a national team. They are in Division II and they finished second to Estonia at the most recent Division II Tournament with one win, three overtime wins and no losses.

The Jamaican Ice Hockey Federation started in 2011 and was accepted into the IIHF in 2012. 

The turn by Gunnar at the end of the movie:

At certain point we got into Julie the Cat’s exploits with Scooter, the goalie from D3. Mike and Kevin thought there Julie and Scooter went beyond just a kiss on the cheek. They were wrong. Tommy was right. Here’s the only action between the two at the end of D3.

Ep. 1: Did Gordon Bombay learn anything?

Play

View in iTunes.

Mike, Tommy and Kevin spend the inaugural Quack Attack Podcast by discussing the merits and demerits of Gordon Bombay in D1. The movie (ahem, film) depicts him as a good guy. Is he really that, or do his interactions with the people around him show that he never shook his “win at all costs” attitude?

 

Show notes:

Here are a couple things we referenced in the pod:

Mike was wrong about the final player on the ice for the penalty shot. The five on the ice were Conway, Germaine, Moreau, Averman and Peter Mark, not Karp. Peter Mark and Karp are basically on the same level, so harm done. The final scene:
