Hockey players show up at the rink and think the lights come on as if on their own, and you play. But behind all the magic of our game, especially at the NHL level, is a huge machine made of multiple moving parts, a master illusionist that pulls off complicated and interconnected feats to make players and fans unaware of anything beyond excitement and fun.

One of these moving parts in maximizing this fan experience for the “World c...

The boys are back without a guest this week to take on a series of questions with plenty of back-and-forth. They hit on such topics as:
-Will McDavid finish with more career points than Sid?
-Doesn't it seem like McDavid's been scoring at an 80s-esque pace? Yet how is it that Sid was scoring at that pace through 369 games?
-Can Burkie drop his insistence on playing "big" and "long pants" hockey?
-Was Ferraro cl...

When the boys think of junior hockey years in Truro, they think of much more than on-ice thrills and energetic fan support. It's the life that goes on the many hours and days off the ice, in billet homes, in the community, in school, and hanging with the friends who become friends for life.

In the second year of the Bearcat franchise's existence, one Steve Grant joined the mix. With a ride home from the Agricultural College ...

The Boulton boys knew her as Sandra Barkhouse when she was a trainer with the Truro Jr. 'A' Bearcats over 20 years ago. Since then, she's become Sandra McIsaac and a proud mom of two.

We expected some fun stories looking back with former teammate and friend Geoff Carter, but what we didn't know about his experience in hockey, including right within our own playing days with him, fascinated us more anything we had been looking forward to.

Listeners can gain yet another picture of junior hockey as it was in the late 90s, and whether you're familiar with the Bearcats or not, you can relate to the stories in ...

The first of a new line of special guests representing vast perspectives on the game we all love, the boys sit down with former Truro Jr. A Bearcat teammate (and seasoned podcaster on Outside the Chute), Randy Frame, for a wide-ranging conversation covering too much to list in a summary. It’s a wild ride of reminiscence spanning minor hockey through to junior, including stories of friendship, glory, heartache, and gear-grinding—wit...

You asked. We’ve answered. Eventually.

Taking on some listener questions from since the beginning of the playoffs, the brothers discuss:
-What do we think of the current all-star format?
-Who is the best goalie in the NHL?
-What are the Kraken’s first-year expectations?
-How is a 3rd-4th line guy also a powerplay guy?

Of course, they get off onto relevant (and not so relevant) tangents, giving these questions the full treatment. They b...

What do the boys think about an all-Canadian division? The idea's been thrown around for consideration, if U.S.-Canada travel complications continue into next season. Will it be good for the league, for Canadian teams, for building rivalries? Or is it something we never want to see?
