The Sens may be off to a bit of a rocky start but we are in play-off form already!
This week's episode has a little of everything that makes the Underground the must-listen part of your Sens week; Alfie love, leafer hate, jokes at the expense of various nationalities (tongue-in-cheek-ingly), a classic Shredder-Stooli rant and, dare we say, some entertaining insight.
The boys kicked off the season with 2 losses and a win:
Sens 3 - Wings 5
Sens 5 - Laffs 6
Wild 3 - Sens 4
The first game, predictable. The second, frustrating but with some measure of satisfaction in making the dirty ones sweat AND Alfie sticking it to them again. The third, a downright classic on a very special night celebrating the home-opener of season 20. And what a storybook ending it was! We give you our extended thoughts and opinions on all three games.
There were several interesting story lines that have developed early this season including the struggle of some of the vets, the booing of Gonchar, the benching of Lee and Filatov and the stellar showing of DaCo. Come on! How much more do you need!? We haven't even got to the return of Dany Doucher yet!
Still not enough for you? No problem, because we're just getting warmed up! We introduce the new listener-inspired segment, "Flippin' and Floppin'", discuss the effect of a new attitude surrounding the team but we also, with much trepidation, look down the road to what may be the impending end to the Golden reign.
Oh come on!! You want even more? No worries, we got you covered. How about a little chat about the backlash against Sheriff Shanny, Don Cherry's foolishness and an absolute classic rant between Shedder and Stooli on the future of fighting in the NHL. This alone is worth tuning in for.
And just for good measure, we'll talk about the crazy world of the salary cap, give you a new poll question, read some awesome e-mails and even tell you about a new way you can be part of the podcast which we think you'll love.
Don't ever tell us we don't treat you good! Unless you're Russian or Mexican, that is.
Nostrovia, seniors and senoritas!
