BHF Interview: Kevin Sylvester

Buffalo Sabres television host, part time play by play man, and the host of “Hockey Hotline” on WGR55 AM here in Buffalo, Kevin Sylvester joined ThinkSoJoE for an interview this morning.  We talk about the NHL lockout and it’s effect on broadcasters, arena workers, and fans.  We bring up painful memories for us Sabres fans as we discuss the controversial Cup-clinching goal scored by Brett Hull in 1999.  We talk about the new look Buffalo Sabres, and their potential.  Kevin discusses his new book, “The Married Man’s Guide to Golf,” as well as “Hockey Hotline,” his new hockey discussion program that airs Tuesday through Thursday at 10AM on Buffalo’s WGR55.  We get Kevin’s picks for our upcoming “Ultimate Hockey Fighter” series, and what Buffalo Sabres broadcasting conversation would be complete without a quick chat about the legendary Rick Jeanneret?  All this, and much more!  Click the link below to listen!

Arkham Arena?

This Saturday night, the fate of the 2012 – 2013 NHL season will be determined… at least the start of it. Call me a Joker for not posting this on Cat(woman)urday, but let’s Two-Face it… even though it’s Friday, we all know the Bane of this weekend will be whether the Riddle(r)’s solution will become apparent during the 11th hour. Have a good weekend! Let’s hope my bad punditry is outweighed by the animated gif below.

(Special thanks to resident BHF contributor, Stove Coleman, for inspiring this. When reached for comment, Coleman noted, “Funny how he rigged the draft for the Penguin. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. […] Both the NHL/PA Robin’ us of a season! I’ve got more, but they’re getting worse.”).

Tweets to the NHL and NHLPA

Yesterday morning on my way home from my “day job,” I decided to tweet to the NHL and NHLPA my thoughts on their current dispute as pertains to revenue sharing and whatnot.  I thought I’d share those tweets with you all here on Bored Hockey Fan.
