The Dump In 102112

by NiNY

For this week's show we're back to a binary (Mike and Nick) format. We tackled topics around the lockout and CBA negotiations. Give it a listen!

The Big Question
In the NHL CBA negotiation, does winning the PR battle matter to either side?

The Rundown
We rank the top five Executive Directors in NHLPA history - and our rankings may surprise you a bit.

The Arena
We battle it out over the age-old question: Is Gary Bettman good or bad for the NHL?

The Quote
This week's quote comes from Martin Brodeur.

We are back next week, hopefully with another guest.

Thanks for listening, and send us your thoughts here or on Twitter @htpthedumpin

The Dump In 101412

by Nick

What a show!

We spent the hour with friend of the blog and friend of ours Nate Wells, who writes for First Round Bust, College Hockey News and SB Nation Minnesota talking all things college puck.

He's GQ smooth and obviously knows his college hockey.

Definitely worth a listen.

The Big Question
Is the forthcoming realignment in NCAA hockey good for the game? Nate gives us the straight poop and his thoughts.

The Rundown
Nate ranks his top 5 Gopher student section in-game chants.

Nate's #1:

The Arena
For the young player with NHL aspirations, which is the better development route: Canadian major juniors or the NCAA. Mike and Nate face off in a great debate.

The Quote
Mike finds inspiration for this week's quote from the Godfather of Minnesota hockey himself, John Mariucci.

Here you go!

PS: TDI is now available for your listening pleasure as a podcast via iTunes.

TDI Suggestion Box

by Nick

We're three weeks into The Dump In's (TDI) broadcast life, and the show is going great. We've got bitchin' intro/outro music (thanks Castle Danger!) and fun topics. We've got structure and we even have some dissention.

Have you got any suggestions for topics? If so, let us know!
