CTC Podcast 199 – Untanking
The San Jose Sharks have called up some of the young guys and, as a consequence, are doing a great job now of undoing their recent tank job. Which is bad. We talk about all that and more.
CTC Podcast 198 – A Freaking Mess
You might think that I am referring to the James Reimer Pride Night situation…AND I AM. I’m also referring to the technical difficulties faced by Colin this week which turned him into a podcast listener, rather than a contributor. This one is a bit all over the place, but I hope you enjoy. Also, Pride Night forever.
CTC Podcast 197 – The Timo Meier Memorial Trade Deadline Round-Up
Yeah, we have a lot to say about this trade deadline. Listen, if you like.
CTC Podcast 196 – Expected Kunins
GM Mike Grier loves himself some replacement-level players so we have to wonder: how many Luke Kunins will the #sjsharks add in the Erik Karlsson and Timo Meier trades that are shaping up. 5? 6? A whole new AHL team’s worth of mediocrity? Alex and Ben discuss.
CTC Podcast 195 – A Marathon, Not a Sprint
The trio is back together to talk about the Nieto/Merkley trade and the rumors swirling around Logan Couture and Timo Meier. What should the #sjsharks do? We discuss!
CTC Podcast 194 – Ingenious!
So, thanks to an OS upgrade, we had to record the podcast in an entirely new, ad-hoc way this week. Hope that our conversations about the genius of GMMG’s intentional tank job come through loud and clear for you all.
CTC Podcast 193 – Dirtl Hertl
The #sjsharks are still bad, but this week added two little twists: the season-ending injury to Luke Kunin and the suspension of Tomas “Babe Ruth” Hertl for taking a swing at a dude’s head with his stick. Alex and Ben talk about that and why Ben has decided that the team in teal should bring back Micheal Haley, John Scott, and Mike Brown. #tealtankathon #bombhardforbedard #futilityforfantilli
CTC Podcast 192 – Matt Nieto, Superstar
It’s the podcast episode you’ve all been waiting for. Alex and Ben talk about Matt Nieto’s career two weeks and what it means for the Sharks going forward.
Spoiler alert: not much in the slightest.
CTC Podcast 191 – Ups and Downs
Erik Karlsson is playing out of his mind right now. When that coincides with the forwards scoring it makes for some fun, and sometimes winning, hockey. When they aren’t…oof. We talk about all this and more in this week’s podcast.
