To borrow from the great Bob Cole .... "Everything is happening!"
What a week to talk about! We have retirements, trades, streaks, injuries, callups ... you name it, it happened. Martin Brodeur retires and joins the front office, we bid adieu to Maxim Lapierre, and willkommen to Marcel Goc. We lose Jori Lehtera, Patrik Berglund, and Kevin Shattenkirk, but gain a Ty Rattie. And, most importantly, the Blues keep on winning. No surprise, we have opinions on all of that. Also, there's the David Backes hit, the Fathers' Trip and the Game Time 20th Anniversary party - which has a story of its own. Looking forward, there are salary cap concerns in the near future, and impacts to the league overall and the Blues specifically. All of this and more!
Give it a listen, eh?

Something that was lost in the garble: Dmitrij Jaskin's full name is Dmitrij Alekseevich Jaškin, so that sort of kept the Alex thing going in the Caps game.
