Spittin' Chiclets Episode 95: Featuring Keith TkachukSpittin Chiclets add
On Episode 95, we're happy to bring you the #2 U.S.-born goal scorer in NHL history, Keith Tkachuk. Big Walt called it like he saw it when he played and, thankfully, nothing has changed. In one of the more entertaining interviews we've conducted, Tkachuk talks about what it's like to have two sons become first round draft picks, when he first recognized their talent, what wisdom he imparted on them, why Chris Pronger was a prick to practice against, why Pronger is one of the best ever, the difference in young stars from his day vs. today, losing a bunch of chiclets for the first time in his career...two months before retirement, playing for Herb Brooks, almost finishing his career in his hometown, what his draft day was like, and a shitload more. This was a fun one. The fellas also break down the Domi/Galchenyuk and Hoffman trades, Trotz to Long Island, and issue an apology for a mistake on the previous ep.

Spittin' Chiclets Episode 93: Featuring Nello Ferrara & A Senators MeltdownSpittin Chiclets add
On Episode 93, the guys open up with the dual PR disasters coming out of Canada's capital. Ottawa Senators assistant GM Randy Lee was accused of giving an unsolicited shoulder rub to a 19-year-old hotel shuttle driver and allegedly made lewd comments regarding his (Lee's) wrench as well. Meanwhile, Melinda Karlsson filed for a peace bond (Canadian restraining order, roughly) against Mike Hoffman's longtime fiancée Monika Caryk because Caryk is alleged to have made some preposterously crazy comments online regarding the Karlsson's stillborn child. Several other WAGs backed Karlsson's account. And that's just the tip of the (alleged) lunatic iceberg and another indication of how quickly it's fallen apart for the Sens. The fellas also discuss the Islanders/John Tavares situation before Biz interviews Nello Ferrara about his wild ride through the minor leagues.
