Dater is BACK!
Great to hear his voice talking about the Avs again. And AJ, his guest, is one of the smartest Avs hockey guys out there. Can't wait for more!
What the Fogg?
I've been a fan of JJ for several years, and I want him to have a successful platform to talk about the Avalanche. But Zach Fogg knows less than nothing about the game of hockey. I'm suspicious that he's never actually watched a game. And sadly, my ears can no longer endure the brutal assault of his uninformed and thoughtless opinions.
Informative and Entertaining
This is a real podcast with real pros. Not to mention these guys actually know hockey and dont focus all their time on trying to break meaningless stories nor do they spend much time off topic. This was made for hockey people who like quality delivery and analysis.
