Season 2 -Episode 7 Show Notes

0:00 The Pre-Christmas/Holiday/Best of the Season/World Junior Championship/ Edition of the Bobcast.

2:14 Bob talks about St. Catharine’s and recounts how Rick Dudley went from being a 19 year old lacrosse star to a pro hockey player, Head Coach, and General Manager, after only 26 games of junior hockey.

5:46 Bob answers a listener’s question regarding why the WJC is played in Canada every other year.

11:00 Bob answers a listeners question regarding who is a “lesser known” Russian prospect playing in the KHL to keep an eye on during this year’s WJC. Bob suggests Mikhail Malstev could be someone to keep an eye on. 

17:15 Bob outlines the marquee value of the Swedish and American junior teams and is astounded at the Finnish defense corps.

20:51 A listener asks if there are any plans to do an 8 game “Summit Series” between the American and Canadian Junior National teams. 

24:05 Bob talks about the “Old Barn on Elgin Street” in Sudbury, where you could have seen a wolf’s teeth scattered on the ice, a giant wolf mascot get conked on the head, the voice of Joe Bowen, Mike Foligno jumping or a young Dale Hunter. 

31:30 A German hockey fan thanks Bob for his work, and Bob demonstrates his fluency in German. 

34:30 Bobby Rotten Tomatoes takes listeners suggestions about some Netflix shows he should check out and describes whether Vikings will survive post Ragnar.

41:50 Bob discusses hockey literature including: “Brady Brady Shaw” and his namesake books, Craig Custance’s new book “Behind the Bench”, and describes reading the Scott Young trilogy “Scrubs on Skates / Boy on Defense / Boy at Leafs' Camp” to his boys. 

46:25 Bob answers a listener’s question about Brad Shaw’s coaching future.

49:30 Trapper Bob MD answers a listeners question regarding Stoicism and Mindfullness and their applicability to professional sports and recommends 3 books by Ryan Holiday.

53:25 A listener asks Bob whether the Hockey Hall of Fame has any intention of changing the method in which players are inducted into the Hall, and why don’t they schedule the ceremony at a time where it doesn’t have to share the spotlight.

57:33 A New Jersey fan wants to know if Bob agrees with the Devils handling of Nikita Popugaev, and discusses the propagation of Popugaev’s.

1:02:15 A fan asks Bob’s opinion on the amount of Toronto Maple Leafs coverage. Bob explains how time zones can affect the content of SPORTSCENTRE but readily admits that Toronto gets lots of coverage. Bob also explains how he objectively approaches all players and teams and how when insecure fans disagree with his assessments, they will usually criticize him as Toronto centric.

1:11:45 An angry Jets fan is not happy with the lack of Jets highlights and asks Bob to remove his head from his “Eastern Ass”. Ironically Bob shares her frustration with the first part of her question.
