POTG Radio Tonight and Weekend Round-Up

In spite of all the snow and ice that we have that doesn't look like it is going anywhere soon, we will be on the air with our weekly POTG Radio show tonight at the usual time of 7:00 to 8:00 Central.

Our first guest will be Travis Hair from Five for Howling to discuss tomorrow's Predator-Coyote match up. We will also touch on the surprising season the the Yotes have had and the status of the pending sale of the Coyotes.

We will also have Ryan from the RedLightDistrict to discuss yesterday's big trades and other thoughts on buyers and sellers as we head into the Olympic trade deadline as well as the real trade deadline on March third.

Finally, we will also have a brief visit from Joe Fortunato one of the hosts of the new BTR show Rink Side Radio that will debut at 8:00 Central tonight. The show is a product of SB Nation and will be a weekly show with Joe Fortunato former co-host of Blue Shirt Banter and Brandon Worley of Defending Big D as the hosts. Here are the details of their recent announcement.

In Predator Nation...

In somewhat of a surprise move, the Preds sent Nick Spaling to Milwaukee in time for yesterday's game with Hamilton.

John Glennon has a new notes piece with the explanation that O'Reilly was kept over Spaling so the Preds could have more offense. With the way the penalty kill has been going, I would prefer Spaling.

The Admirals lost to Hamilton but Colin Wilson had another big game. Short Shifts has the story. They also have commentary on Nick Spaling going back down instead of Cal O'Reilly.

Wes Cunningham has a series of still pictures from Saturday's Preds-Thrashers game at Inside Hockey.

Jas Faulkner has the Predators Almanac for the Spring. Really good stuff here.

Jim Diamond has his weekly prospects summary.

Jeremy at Section303 has his take on the Leaf's trades on Sunday.

Dirk Hoag has a music roundup (Preds style) from last night's Grammy show.

Congrats to Dan Ellis and his wife as they are scheduled to have a baby girl today. Our prayers go out to them for a smooth go of it. Hopefully the birth will have the same positive effect that it did on David Legwand a couple of months ago.

Around the NHL...

Yesterday's blockbuster deals involving Brian Burke and the Maple Leafs woke up the hockey crowd on an otherwise quiet Sunday morning. The best perspective that I saw on the twin deals was from Bob McKenzie who looks at the deals from the short and long term view for all three teams involved.

James Mirtle has the dollars and cents of the deals.

Calgary wasn't done as they allegedly made another big deal expected to be announced this morning. They look to be a lot tougher than they were. After losing nine in a row, something had to give.

The deals awakened to do a buying/selling article for all thirty teams.

Ken Campbell has the lowdown on the latest shot at salvaging the ownership for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Puck Daddy looks at Vancouver's Road Trip from Hell.

Tim Rosenthal has this weeks Rosie's Rebounds with a look toward tonight's Beanpot and a lot more.

Mike Chen takes a look at the standings reworked with no loser points.

Ryan Miller's Olympic Team USA mask is cool.

Matt Reitz takes a look at the six Canadian teams on the eve of Hockey Day in Canada.

Have you ever seen 101 goals in one video? All of Anze Kopitar's in one video are here. Interesting.

The hottest team in hockey is the Ottawa Senators as they won their eight straight to tie a franchise record.

Hockey Wilderness takes on Adrian Dater by doing a breakdown of a post, line by line.

Marty Brodeur shows a WSJ reporter how to be a goalie in a five minute video.

If you have always dreamed of going to a Coyotes game with a porn star you can. A Craig's list post has just what you have been wanting for $500.

The whole football field will be the red zone at Eastern Washington with their new red turf. SBD has the story.

Finally, In-N-Out Burger has a new Facebook page. Interesting videos and pics of food and fans are included. A picture of Jay Leno at a location may put them out of business. Also, a very old looking Huell Howser has the first ever look inside an In-N-Out kitchen. Huell got his start at WSMV in Nashville, just like Pat Sajac.

More Later...
