    Millennial Puke Soy Boys
    Weak show with weak hosts, with the exception of Sean McIndoe. The broad on the show has more balls than the guys. But that dame is relatively weak too. A show by and for Millennial Puke Soy Boys.

    Why is it so negative?
    I listened to parts of 3 shows on my 50 minute drive home. All they seem to do is complain and make negative comments about every team. If you hate NHL teams that much, maybe don’t have a show about it. Also, just because you can use foul language doesn’t mean you should. People listen in the car with their kids in the backseat.

    Please talk about hockey
    I’m 17 minutes into the draft episode, and most of what I’ve heard is about the injustice of Chicago having a 1st, and how the “plutocrats” win in the end. If you want to make that point, go ahead. But, after that, move on to another topic. I don’t want to listen to you complain about the same thing over and over again. We’re deep into the playoffs. There are so many exciting story lines. Find something positive to talk about.

    I enjoy Corey's interviews and professionalism. Otherwise, I would rather hear from the average fan at the bar about what they think about hockey. Sean Gentille is a self-important tool. Unsubscribed.

    Out of touch with real fans
    Some shows have guests and topics that are interesting but they are in the minority. They focus on original six teams. All others are covered in passing or half heartedly. Latest episode is how boring hockey is right now after trade deadline. Guess they don’t realize there are wild card races, major injuries outside Minnesota, women’s hockey, and league issues that GMs and owners need to work through. Just to name a few interesting things they could be covering. I’m done.

    There are maybe 1 or 2 good hosts but most of them are absolutely cringe and annoying. Definitely makes me never want to sub to their journalism
  • Mikafino
    Wildly inconsistent
    Thursday is strong and the prospects guys are total pros. The other shows are borderline unlistenable. Main offenses include, but are not limited to, incorrect humor evaluation (McIndoe is the ONLY funny person), over confidence on politics, juvenile attitudes about how hard to try in interviews, self-deprecating tone attempting to justify mediocrity, terrible introductions, lack of personality.

    I am not sure why football is leading off on episodes. I like the podcast when they discuss hockey.
  • A.Pobo
    Good for prospect analysis only
    Cory and max are the only redeeming hosts of his show.
  • Ebickford248
    Show stinks
    This show stinks

    People are harsh
    I’ve read some of these reviews and I don’t understand them. I love this pod!! Keeps you up to date daily about what’s going on in the hockey world! Keep it up everyone!
  • proop8
    skip mondays!
    do i need to say it..? tried another monday episode without realizing... still just as bad six months later. its like when your childhood friend’s younger sister tries to fit in, making everybody put up with it because mom said be nice. ((update: mondays are even worse with the new guy))
  • FunWithFlags_68
    Sean/Hailey Combo Must Go
    Mostly good, but man when Sean and Hailey are on it sounds like two high schoolers talking hockey. They’d be fine with other hosts but together it’s unlistenable. Ornate amounts of dead air.
  • Tax The Marmana
    Not bad
    It doesn’t take long before you can’t stand Sean Gentille. He is the guy that you know that no one wants to hang out with. Because he is so annoying to listen to. Hailey sounds like the ultimate white girl. Her stories about her personal life just go on and on. I have to motivate myself to continue to listen. The other hosts are much better.

    Literally Sara
    If I have to hear Sara say the word “literally” one more time I may cancel my subscription

    Mondays and Wednesdays are not good

    Does the F bomb really add to the podcast?
    Listened to your podcast for the first time and was impressed with the depth of discussion regarding the NHL draft first round. However, I was very disappointed in the use of the f-bombs and just don’t get why you feel the need to bring that to the discussion. It comes off as unprofessional and alienates those who may want to listen but have kids around a lot or just prefer not to hear that language. It’s a shame because without that this would be a top notch podcast. Perhaps you’ll consider reevaluating the need to use such colorful language. It does not add value or to your cool factor and just seemed out of place with the bulk of the show. Your show, your rules but just wanted to provide some feedback that might be of benefit. Couldn’t you just refrain from that for the sake of some of your audience? Given the current format, I’ll probably choose other avenues to get the info I’m looking for. Its a shame because your content was solid. Michael

    The Tuesday Boyzzz
    Sean and Craig threatened to sing the Canadian national anthem out of sync again if I didn’t leave a review. Five stars. Great pod. Please don’t sing. Stick to TouchTunes.
  • chris4hawks
    Great show
    Sean Gentille once broke into my house and threatened my cat unless I rated this show five stars on iTunes. An an unrelated note, I quite enjoy the variety of personalities on this show and enjoy the player interviews.
  • Avery12354
    It was good 👍🏽
    I think 💭 it was very full of hockey 🏒 🥅 but just talking about everything going on in the NHL so you don’t have to watch the highlights of the NHL is what they do basicly
  • J.J. Hanke
    Corey, Max, & Nonsense
    The Friday episode with Corey and Max on prospects is great. The rest is garbage. Hailey sounds like a stoned Millennial. Ian is a clown. Dom is lame with his numbers crap (whatever nerd) and his co-hosts are unable to pronounce his name. Five stars for Max & Corey. One star for the crew that should be working at Canadian Tire or Footlocker. Addendum: Craig C. used to be good, but is now a sad Seinfeld-esque caricature. Rambling, whining, and stupid. And then there is Sean. If you listen to him for an hour and not want to pull his underwear up to his earlobes and take his lunch money then you are a better person than I am. I’m sure he must have a very punchable face.
  • NathanS77
    Too much twitter
    Ugh can’t anyone listen to a podcast that doesn’t obsess about what is on twitter. Most people aren’t on there so focus on real hockey news and less talk about who tweeted what. Oh and maybe stop overusing the word “literally,” especially Sara.
  • slurmzmckenziedavis
    Tuesday Show is the Best show.
    Great stuff, but the Tuesday show is the goat show. USA! USA!
  • wildp0wn
    Salvian and Julian Come on!
    It’s an octopus not a squid 8 tentacles for the 8 wins needed to win the cup back in the day Also The wave - don’t care unless they start doing it during a power play / key moment in the game And Hailey Big save on the womens hockey team intros Big time fail
  • j_leddy
    Almost Perfect
    Great collection of hockey shows but it’s too bad Sara’s stomach-churning laugh (and annoying voice) and Hailey’s millennial apathy drag down the rest of the contributors.
  • love radiohead
    Monday Tuesday rivalry
    Hailey is as sassy ever when she talks s…t to patriotic Tuesday show. Would love a show with Craig and Hailey throwing word hay makers at each other.
  • Hakkey Fan
    Tuesday Show
    Sounds like a bunch of drunks shouting over one another. Five stars.
  • QuickNess15
    Good Listen Most Days
    4/5 stars because I skip Wednesday’s podcast
  • Chris Berg24
    Enjoy getting the news across the league in one place along with good interviews.
  • PAyscue
    Painfully awful
    Better "analysis" at local bar and the drunks talk over each other less
  • 861027
    That voice
    Hailey’s Monday voice fry is not a good way to start the week.
  • Offended by this game
    These guys are talking to themselves. It’s not informative, not insightful, not adding value to my hockey experience.
  • Mister weny
    Civian’s has a voice for print
    Her vocal fry is a tough listen especially compared to the smooth sounding Jesse Granger.
  • Noose Brighthawk
    A great hockey show, fun and classsssssy!
    TBH, it’s really 6 stars for the American edition, 4 for the rest of the Canadian week. But always worth a listen, and no one should ever argue with McIndoe. He’s always right.
  • Shoeless Jack Johnson
    Those advertisements....
    The advertisements are too long and too abrupt. Don’t start the show with a 2.5 min advertisement. You are turning off potential listeners. This pod cast has a long way to go before it can compete with The Full 60, Puck Soup and Spittin Chicklets
  • Bwcanes
    When I was missing hockey I found this podcast. Complete garbage! Political agendas, one sided commentary. It’s just garbage! There are some bad ones but this is the worst! Keep looking when this one comes up as an option.
  • Patdadsmen
    Yes, please, ok thanks!
    I love all the different shows, love the week day run down! It’s super team podcasting, glad there’s no salary cap in podcast land. Take that tampa! Whoooooo! zing!! Can’t wait for the next season, keep doing what you do. U-S-A!, U-S-A!, U-S-A!
  • UZReview
    Not great
    Compared to the other top hockey podcasts including spittin chiclets, cam & strick, dropping the gloves, and sports net, it’s just not entertaining enough for me to follow. They do have good guests on this show and I like hearing about women’s hockey and stuff but it’s not for me.
  • Turtlemountain
    Love the monday show
    Hailey and Ian are a great duo, big big fan. Friday prospect show isn’t my thing, but a great way to pretend I know anything about the draft
  • bananalover434343
    Great Show
    Love the show. Everything an NHL fan could want. Sean McIndoe, Sean Gentille, and Craig Custance are especially mint, but everyone is great.
  • crankshaft333
    Love it
    Love the podcast. Love the hosts. Nuf said. 💪💪💪⚡️⚡️⚡️🤙🤙🤙
  • Lon Berry
    Skip Mondays
    Monday episodes are the worst of the bunch because there are insurance seminars more interesting than Hailey.
  • mizzoutiger89
    Like this podcast-but Monday, with Haley-fuhgeddabowdit. How on earth did she get this job. I’ve never heard someone NOT answer questions like her. She always has some excuse, changes the question to something else, OR suggests we get someone else on the show to answer that. Seriously. So done with the Monday show. Today, her partner gives her a softball-who would u like to see win another Cup. Even I came up with Flower! Then she starts talking about how he’s not old. He may not be old, but he’s been in the league HOW long?? He got benched by the Pens. Now he’s The Man again. He’s news. It’s not hard to come up with his name. How can u not get that softball. Just one example of MANY. I’m sorry, but MOnday is a write off. Oh yes, (todays show really bugged me) the word is ‘oust’. You’re a journalist/writer??
  • LynnEsq
    Love the variety
    I came for DGB, but have grown to really enjoy Hailey and Ian as well. Excited for the all American Tuesday episode, which I assume will include a weekly call for the Hockey Hall of Fame to induct John Mayasich.
  • VB.5280
    The Hockey Show - Monday
    Please, no more chatter about Hailey’s personal issues. I had to stop listening last week because the broken toe blather just went on and on. I couldn’t believe the show started on the same topic today. Maybe Ian and the producers think it’s funny, but I have to say it does Hailey and the show a huge disservice. Please stick to hockey. Thank you.
  • @ cai
    Talks good and true about sports
  • Loosemagoose
    Scrap the Monday show
    Get hosts that actually have conviction in their opinions. Gets hosts that can disagree but argue their point. Get hosts that can just answer a question without a minute long preamble. Get hosts that a comfirtable on the mic. Mondays are sooooooo awkward. The Monday show is such a daggum slog. Shake it up or scrap it
  • Indyhockeyfan
    Let Two man Advantage be it’s own podcast
    I first heard Lebrun/Burnside back when they were on ESPN. Eventually I got burnt out on them and quit listening. The athletic brought them back with two man advantage. I gave them a second shot and quit listening after about 3 episodes. This podcast comes out three times a week. The middle episode is just two man advantage. We’re about a month in and I now turn off the podcast when I hear brass bonanza. Take that warning song away and this becomes a 3 star review. Take out two man advantage and this becomes a five star review. I’m sure if enough people enjoy it, their podcast will stand on its own. Other than that, I enjoy the other three hosts and like a twice a week format. It can get a bit Canada centric, but I enjoy contrasting it against the opinions I hear elsewhere.
  • dewy24
    A little narrow
    This podcast should/could be a lot better. I like everyone on it but they don’t talk about the NHL all that much. There’s a real need for a podcast that talks about what’s happening in the whole league and I kind of expected this to do that. Instead there’s a lot of “who is your favorite blah blah?” type questions. Maybe get some people from outside of Ontario too? If you have people who work on all of these different teams it would be great to her from them.
