The Hockey News may be the most recognized hockey publication in North America, but THN’s podcast and video roundtables are quickly becoming must-view material. Sharkspage obtained permission to post The Hockey News podcast with senior THN writer Adam Proteau and veteran tv/radio host Scott Laughlin.

This week on The Hockey News Radio Show with Adam Proteau and Scott Laughlin on XM Satellite Radio Home Ice Channel 204: After a one-show absence, Scott rejoins Adam in Toronto for a biweekly, off-season edition of THN Radio. In the opening segment, Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher calls in and discusses his team’s contract extension with Mikko Koivu, the future of center Pierre-Marc Bouchard, and the oddities of the NHL’s free agent market. In the second segment, Philadelphia Flyers winger Daniel Carcillo joins the show to talk about his new contract, and an extended Ask Adam Q&A deals with questions on the Canucks’ Cup chances and Willie Mitchell’s potential destinations. In the final block, Ask Adam continues and focuses on why teams buy out players rather than demote them to the AHL; Kevin Lowe and Don Waddell getting promoted despite their teams’ record; and the Carolina Hurricanes’ search for a forward.
