Featuring Guy The Hawaii Blues Fan’s “Aloha Commentary” and the latest lyrical stylings from Luke “Teriyaki Fingers” Widbin! Sit back and enjoy the latest news and fun from Bluenotes as we learn about the 2020-21 Vegas Golden Knights!
2020-21 Vegas Golden Knights
The Bluenotes tour of the NHL’s West Division continues! Now, it’s the team arguably the most poised to become their newest rivals: the 2020-21 Vegas Golden Knights. Fresh off signing Alex Pietrangelo, we get an update on how he’s fitting in with the team and who his defensive partner will be. We also get an update on Blues-favorite Ryan Reaves. Plus, an update on the combustible Robin Lehner/Marc-Andre Fleury tandem. (Note: this interview was recorded less than 24 hours before Mark Stone was named captain, but Dave and Andrew do predict Stone would be the choice.)
Unfortunately, Tom and Wags weren’t able to recap Wednesday night’s late game against the Colorado Avalanche, but Luke Widbin stopped by to drop his latest musical hit: “The Devil Went Down to Colorado!” He uses country music this time to tell the story of the Avs as the season gets underway. Finally, Tom Franklin runs down the latest Blues news (including the Mike Hoffman signing) and wonders how Evander Kane blew through so much money.
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.
