Listen to Fer Sure - Episode 31: Katie Strang

Peter and Jay take you around the NHL and beyond

Here’s what Peter and Jay have for you this time (all time locations are without the opening ad):

Karlsson Trade and Seguin Extension : (00:00 - 18:50) Ottawa gets fleeced, Dallas locks up Seguin long term, and Peter can’t remember the word “wool.” That last part will make sense when you listen (although there are sheep that have hair).

Yzerman Steps Down: (18:50 - 30:29) Steve Yzerman is no longer the GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning. We talk about processing the news and what it could mean for Detroit in the future.

Interview: (30:29 - 56:33) Our guest this episode is Katie Strang. This was a really fun one, and we’ve been looking forward to making this happen for a long time now. As we talk about, Katie had to go at a certain time, and Jay was unavoidably delayed in getting started, so it’s not as long as we would have liked, but we still had time to talk about the Yzerman news, as well as the NHL’s role in the CTE lawsuit, and more.

Jets, What Are You Doing?! (56:33 - 1:03:08) The Winnipeg Jets unveiled a third jersey. It has not been well received. We pile on a bit.

Oh Captain, My Captain! (1:03:08 - END ) The day before we recorded, we learned that Henrik Zetterberg is not going to play another professional hockey game. We didn’t have much time to really process it, but we make our best effort to do so. Goodnight, sweet prince / And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest (You know, so he can have a relatively normal post hockey life.)

The fantasy hockey projections I talk about are available here.
