Was listening to all the chaos on the old radio when the Beatles were at Empire. It was insane.
Sounded scary to a kid. People getting trampled, you could here all the screaming, Red Robinson trying to talk over it all.
Wonder what HW was doing at the time. ;)


I was sitting at one of the betting booths acting as a shill. Could hear the Beatles barely due to screaming

Gilman joins TSN with Sekeres and Blake Price in the station’s new afternoon drive show. :o


TSN 1040 hires former #Canucks assistant GM Laurence Gilman as an analyst/insider, part-time co-host

Gilman will join Matt Sekeres and Blake Price – the station’s new afternoon drive show – Wednesdays throughout the hockey season. He will typically join the afternoon show in studio for a couple of hours Gray says, but will also do some co-hosting.

The 52-year-old is no stranger to the all-sports radio station, having co-hosted 1040’s NHL free agency show on July 1, as well as coming on as a guest with Sekeres and Price for a couple of hours in August.

I guess I haven't been giving Elliotte Friedman enough credit.
Heard him live on Sportsnet 650am this morning, (can't find a link yet).
The guy is absolutely remarkable. His knowledge and memory on players and their contracts, current and past, and all the comparables is impressive. Put the interviewers to shame. Smart guy!
I suppose I just got too use to only hearing him on the crappy TV panels.

Is it responsible to local media to report speculation that any player, in this case: Rodin and Goldobin, will leave the team for Europe if the don't make the NHL?

Especially since Goldobin has two years left on his contract and can't just opt out. Goldobin' agent says he's staying.

Rodin may have an out clause to return to Sweden if cut but his agent has indicated he wants to stay in North America. Perhaps hoping if cut he doesn't clear waivers. But in any event his agent saying no, he'll stay in North America.
