S4 - Episode 18: Dean Brown Goes Underground!

And Vermette goes to Columbus! Yes, the trade deadline brought us a slightly different looking Sens team today. We won’t see the real difference until next year when Pascal Leclair becomes our next starting goalie but we do say goodbye to long time Senator Antoine Vermette as Murray pulled his only trade of the day. A nice surprise was that he also got them to include a 2nd round draft pick too, which is nice. We debate the merits of this trade but also the trades that didn’t happen: Neil and Kuba. Shredder’s new whipping boy Kuba is now locked up for 3 years which really shocks us as does the fact that Murray was not able to move Neil. Stooli and Russell get into it over why Neil was not moved and his possible future with the team.

Amidst all this trade blather, there were some games played:

San Jose 2 – Ottawa 1
Toronto 4 – Ottawa 3 OT
Calgary 6 – Ottawa 3

You can see why we might want to avoid the recaps, which after last week’s show caused much debate. The response to the question of the length of said recaps was pretty close to 50/50. The fact of the matter is, we have been shortening them slowly for about 2 years and you’ll likely see them shortened a little more in the future. But there is not much short about this show. It’s a true marathon. Russell was doing pretty well until the Leafs game and then he went on his rantfest. But he was not alone this week. Rants rule the day in this show. From parking to Kuba to who Dean Brown hates, there’s no shortage of flapping this week.

Yes, Dean Brown, voice of the Ottawa Senators, joins us this week and it’s a classic. Apart from his views on today’s trades, we speak about some Sens personalities of the past and the team’s reaction to their new coach. Oh, and Gord Wilson’s place on the Dean Brown Totem pole. You’ll love this.

We also place a call to Mrs. Pigman in regards to Showergate and it takes an unexpected turn.

People are Stupid, rules with no exceptions, your e-mails, plenty of leaf bashing, Russell calls out Roy Mlakar, and endless silliness this week. It’s destined to be a classic. Enjoy.
