Part 1 of my conversation with guest James Gralian about the post-lockout NHL. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Beck, Buffalo Tom, Dinosaur Jr. and Titus Andronicus.

Show notes:

- Recorded last weekend via Skype

- Last spoke in October before NHL lockout began

- Season relaunched in mid-January and is wrapping up in next few weeks

- Definitely some bitterness when the NHL came back

- James' many online efforts

- JG: Playing hockey has deepened my appreciation for the sport

- NHL teams sign plenty of undrafted college players

- Georges Vezina was known as the Chicoutimi Cucumber

- Jack Falla wrote some great hockey books

- JK: I was mad at both sides after the lockout

- Ended up getting satellite package and following the Leafs anyway

- Greed is a given in pro sports

- The Leafs fired their GM right before season started

- Now they're on the verge of making playoffs for first time in 9 years

- JK remembers the Leafs' 1993 playoff run

- JK: Not a fan of the shootout

- Rough year for James' favorite team, Colorado

- JG: The Avs need to clean house

- To be continued

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Beck - Halo of Gold

Buffalo Tom - Mineral

Dinosaur Jr. - Freak Scene

Titus Andronicus - Titus Andronicus Forever
