Illegal Curve Hockey Show Preview–January 14, 2012 (UPDATED)

We are going back to our early morning roots with tomorrow’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show. Due to the Jets-Devils afternoon start time, the IC hockey show takes to the TSN 1290 airwaves at a special start time of 8:00 AM, for the typical three hour broadcast.

Our first guest joins us at 8:30 AM, and we are excited to welcome Jason Farris, author of a book called “Behind the Moves: NHL General Managers Tell How Winners are Built.”   Jason spent eighteen months, and travelled 60,000 plus Kilometers, engaging NHL General Managers about their jobs. The results, filling over 120 hours of tape, is this fascinating insight into the life of a General Manager.

At 9:00 AM, with the Winnipeg Jets looking to get back on a winning track later Saturday afternoon versus New Jersey, we welcome to the show, Matt Loughlin, the radio play by play man of the Devils, giving us insight into the Devils of New Jersey.

At 9:45 AM, we will be joined by Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post Dispatch to discuss the surprising play of the St. Louis Blues and the impact that new head coach Ken Hitchcock has had on the franchise (hint: it is significant.)

At 10:00 AM, George Johnson of the Calgary Herald will be with us to discuss the Flames re-acquisition of Mike Cammalleri, and, yet again, try and answer the question of what is the long term plan the Calgary Flames are embarking on.

All that, plus your tweets, emails and (maybe) phone calls (204-780-1290). Best tweets and emails will receive exciting Illegal Curve merchandise!

Join us Saturday from 800 AM – 1100 AM on TSN 1290 in Winnipeg and online at
