Welcome to our Sens-tennial show! Yes, the Underground turns 100 this week and we dedicate this show to you, the listeners, old and new, who have made the show what it is. We could not have found it in ourselves to make it this far without your support and participation in this totally cool, global community we've managed to build.
This show features several guests dropping in, some old and one new. We'll let you discover the old ones on your own but we are honoured to welcome a first time Undergrounder to the show. Sam McCaig, senior copy editor for The Hockey News drops in to give us an objective opinion on this year's Sens. We discuss the Sens, specifically Spezza and Gerber, and then we move on to some NHLish topics such as Sean Avery and European expansion.
There wasn't much to talk about game-wise this week. Just the one match:
Detroit 3 - Ottawa 2
The Sens' schedule picks up this weekend, thank God. With only one game to cover, we had to fill up the show with assorted silliness (Champagne will do that to you - our apologies to Clint Malarchuk). Stooli with the News, your e-mails, our thoughts on the new/old HNIC anthem and a few memories from the old days should keep you giggling right along with us, like Spezza in front of a microphone.
We wouldn't advise you to listen to this one any place where people might look at you funny for laughing to yourself. On second thought, the hell with them. They are probably Leaf fans anyways.
The senior copy editor, Sam McCaig has been with The Hockey News since 1999. He regularly covers the NHL and AHL, but it hasn’t helped his game – his career high for goals in a season is one (set several times).
