CBJ Death...Er, Trade...Pool

In Epsiode 11 of the DKM Hockey podcast, Joe, Morgan, John and Tom took turns selecting two players they believe are most likely to be traded away from the Blue Jackets at the deadline. Below is a summary of the selections. Whoever correctly selected the first of these players to be traded will have his bar tab picked-up by the other guys when the podcast is recorded live at Buffalo Wild Wings Gahanna next Thursday, April 4.

Be sure to come out for the fun, and let us know if there's another Jacket you think will be traded off the roster before the picks below!

John's Picks:
Derick Brassard
Everyone's would-be first choice for a trade target.
Adrian Aucoin
Veteran defenseman could help a team's playoff push.

Joe's Picks:
Nikita Nikitin
Bringer of the knee-high heat.
Artem Anisimov
Will his (prolific?!) scoring ability attract offers?

Tom's Picks:
John Moore
Smooth-skating youngster could get swooped up by a Hawk.
Jared Boll
Attractive for teams wanting a big body to bang around opponents.

Morgan's Picks:
Dalton Prout
Because John Moore was drafted by DBJ. GET TO THE CHOPPA!
Nick Foligno
Speedy skater could bring good energy to a playoff team.

DKM Hockey Podcast: Episode 11

Joe, John, and Morgan are back in Episode 11 to update everyone on their hilarity on the CBJ Oregon Trail.  But the boys have a special guest during the entire show, none other then Mr Dark Blue Jacket himself, Tom Fellrath.  With the trade deadline approaching, the four of us draft two players for the CBJ death pool as we try to pick the CBJ player most likely to be traded at the deadline.  With the 12 game point streak over, Morgan is back in therapy.  The show winds down with a little Q&A with Tom from DBJ and the boys finally make good on a Best Buy gift card give-a-way.

Oregon Trail, #CBJ Style

Get ready, Blue Jacket and DKM Hockey fans, for a wondrous adventure across the wild west! Join Morgan, John, and Joe as they pack their wagons with their CBJ families and adventure to the mecca of the northwest: Oregon. (That's right, Seattle, I said, "Oregon." Deal with it.) Just when you thought it wasn't fifth grade any more, we have decided to dust off the old Oregon Trail game to battle hunger and fatigue and a host of ailments to travel the wilderness for your amusement. We'll be talking and writing more about the journeys later, but for now we wanted to introduce our families.

The Morgan Langworthy Family:
Vinny Prospal (Wife)
Mark Letestu - eldest son
Derek Dorsett - middle child
Jack Johnson - little brother,
big chin.

The Joe Reader Family:
Fedor Tyutin (Wife)
Matt Calvert
Jared Boll
Tim Erixon

The John Kemp Family:
RJ Umberger (Wife)

Episode 10 Music Choice - Listener Poll

Ok, so we got to thinking the other day, how can we better engage the fan base?  LET THEM PICK THE MUSIC FOR AN EPISODE!  We have a listener poll set up here on the blog.  You don't have long to choose, polling will close at 8pm on Wednesday.  Look to the right of this post for the music poll.  Pick out one the four possible musical themes for this week's show that you would most want to hear on the show.  The nominees are:

80's music - I'm not talking chinsey "Hey Mickey" crap.  I'm talking about great, "I was there" 80's music.  Simple Minds, Depeche Mode, etc...

James Bond Themes - the most disappointing thing about this year's Academy Awards was the lack luster tribute to Jame Bond films (save Shirley Bassey's fantastic performance of  Goldfinger).  We will pick memorable movie scores and Bond Songs for this episode.

Enya - John Kemp loves Enya.

Cover tunes - I'm talking good, reputable covers of bands covering other bands.  Think of the music we typically play on the show and it will be those kinds of covers.  Chrissy Hynde covering Bruce Springsteen; Ziggy Marley covering Roxy Music, etc

There you have it, don't be bashful.  Pick what you want to hear us play during Episode 10 of the DKM Hockey Podcast.  Don't worry, we'll offer more choices in the future.  Even if you aren't in love with any of the selections, pick one.

The 2012-2013 CBJ Drinking Game

There are many other CBJ drinking games out on the internet.  Most are very clever and well written.  But, we at DKM Hockey haven’t been able to find one specific to this year’s CBJ squad.  Without further adieu, we present the 2012-2013 CBJ Drinking game.  This list will be updated as the season progresses.
Special thanks to @RockManHalo for the fine picture
