It was fun having Dave over last night for Episode 11. It changed things up a little and certainly added to the discussions and we’re all super excited about Alanah’s news – that was officially announced this week (Update: Her new blog is now linked off my sidebar, Canucks and Beyond)
Dave joins John and Rebecca in â€œthe studioâ€ while we have Alanah and J.J. on the line for this slightly longer edition of the podcast. We tackle the latest news regarding the end of Alanahâ€™s blog, Vancouver Canucks Op Ed, and look ahead to what we can expect from her new role with Kuklaâ€™s Korner. You can read her first feature article on her new home, â€œBringing Hockey to the Peopleâ€œ. So yes, the hockey blogging will continue.
That also sparks a brief debate over blogger and podcaster fans of the NHL in general, and their role in covering their favorite hockey teams in this age of new media. Whoaâ€¦ deep.
Canucks! Oh yes, we talk Canucks as well. Carolina, Calgary, and Phoenix are the latest foes to face, so we do our best to cover our likes and dislikes over the games. The way things have been going, we have all been surprised with who weâ€™ve been liking on the ice. We also get a little bit of a Vote for Rory update, tackle goalie mask designs, and toss around various thoughts about whoâ€™s hot and who weâ€™d like to see contribute some more.
