    I think Andi is one of the most underrated hockey analysts in the game.

    It would be difficult to be as bad as i think she is so chances are i underrate her

    Still its hard to take her serious when she believes callups from the ahl make all the guys 'sniffing around' worried whats he doing here?

    Also not sure how much time true hockey people spend daydreaming about the order of the cuphandoff from bettman to reilly to marleau so mauleau is able to get it from a teammate instead of from bettman

    I mean even if you do spend time worrying about marleau getting the cup... dont have a segment about it on your hockey show in october

    Not much mention for thats hockey as a show here... i was working evenings the past 10 years and really only watched it a handful of times each year

    Im getting to watch it nightly this season

    For anyone wanting a 1/2 hour brushup of whats going on in hockey around canada i cant think of a better place to get it

    Alot of other toronto area shows might be struggling this year but thats hockey is top form

    I may regret saying this, but I'm starting to like Burke in the media, at least lately... His stories are interesting.

    I feel like I'm taking crazy pills listening to some of the media after the Babcock firing. Kristen Shilton saying that Dubas has not made the roster better since taking over for Lou. Like what are you on. All the talk before the season started was how great this roster looked on paper. Since being the GM Dubas has added Muzzin, Barrie, JOHN TAVARES and has gotten rid of several dead weight contracts. What did Lou do for the roster when he was in charge? Over pay bottom of the line up players and give out some of the worst contracts in the NHL to Marleau and Zaitsev.

    Then she brings up the point that should Dubas be building his team for Babcock? Hell no. It is way easier for the coach to adapt to the players that he has been given, rather than trying to over turn a roster to exactly suit what the coach wants. Not to mention the fact that Dubas never hired Babcock. Babcock was never his guy, and was never going to be his guy so why would be change his entire philosophy for him whether it would be right or wrong.

    Burke was great on the 31 thoughts podcast which came out today. I just cant stand him when he will make a hot take because it will cause drama.

    He's always been entertaining, some people just couldn't get by his bluster.
    I think he's hilarious, love to have a couple pints with him.

    I quite like Burke in the media, even if I do disagree with some of his opinions.

    He has a ton of experience in hockey to pull from and I actually feel hes intelligent. Cant say the same for everyone in the media

    Thought it was funny when Dubas said on Overdrive that Keefe argues with him more than anyone else he's worked with

    Why don't they give mics to the people asking questions at some press conferences, talking about Keefe's presser today.

    It would help to hear the question being asked to give context to the answer.
