Last Word on Hockey presents The Bluenotes Podcast! The latest addition to the stable of LWOH Hockey Podcast Content. Every Monday and Thursday, Tom Franklin and The Man Called Wags discuss the latest happenings with the St Louis Blues and around the world of hockey. Featuring Guy The Hawaii Blues Fan’s “Aloha Commentary” and the latest lyrical stylings from Luke “Teriyaki Fingers” Widbin! So sit back and enjoy the latest news and fun from Bluenotes as we learn about the 2020-21 Colorado Avalanche!
Let there be hockey! The 2021 NHL season gets underway Wednesday with the St. Louis Blues in a late-night tilt with the Colorado Avalanche. Tom and Wags bring in Fansided reporter and “Tell It Avs It Is” podcast host Griffin Youngs to get a primer on what we can expect from the 2020-21 Colorado Avalanche this season. The boys ask him about recent head-to-head records, the Avs offseason improvements (Brendan Saad and Devon Toews), how former Blues first overall pick Erik Johnson is faring, what the Avs strengths/weaknesses, and who is expected to break out big for Colorado this season.
Then, it’s another Aloha Commentary with Guy the Hawaii Blues fan. He’s in a singing mood this week with the return of hockey, plus he picks the Central Division standings…out of a hat!
Finally, the boys make their picks for the Central Division. Unlike the West Division last week, Tom and Wags are more varied in how the Central could shake out, which just goes to show how tight that division could be this year.
Who are Tom and Wags? Tom Franklin grew up in Arnold/Imperial, Missouri and Wags grew up in Maryland Heights, Missouri. They both grew up diehard fans of the St Louis Blues and have always loved talking about their favourite team. Tom was never athletic enough (or rich enough) to play hockey, but Wags still plays to this day! You can find Tom’s work at LastWordOnHockey.com.
