Episode 17 – The 2011 NHL All-Star Ballot

Recorded before the Canucks’ four-game losing skid, episode 17 of Pucked in the Head explores the inane NHL policy of not putting the best players’ names on the All-Star Ballot. Jason brings an inordinate amount of passion to the table, and Chris can’t fathom why anyone could care that much about a charity game. Both drink copious amounts of beer, which is the way it should be. Enjoy!

Episode 16 – Ode to the Northwest Division

Pucked in the Head is back with a new logo, the same old attitude, and a scary black and white picture of Jason shirtless. Oh, and if you listen to the very end you’ll hear the very first performance of Jason’s new baby daughter, Milla. (Sorry, the audio files of Chris’s trip to Mexico have been held up at customs.)
