Laughing-out-loud at Strud's organ story. I had to explain it to the the people around me at work because they were looking at me funny.

Struds is awesome. Such a down to earth guy and so funny. I understand why they wanted him in three locker room

Agree on Studwick.....!

Strudwick is a pleasure to listen..........he is a easy going, non pretentious personality.

Cannot stand Nick Kypreos......he gets his info from reading the morning newspapers!

Never says anything original for a guy who is supposed to be "tabbed in".

They should boot Will Fraser back to producer or whatever he was doing before and have Struds fulltime on the morning show.

the thing I like about struds is as a former player who played in the league for 10+ years--he can speak from experience. Like when talking about being a UFA--he told his agent the teams he wanted to go to and said when he can talk to them and he said he always knew where he wanted to go when he had the choice. I was sometimes a matter of the team wanting him

Jason Gregor completely out to lunch.

Saying the Avalanche are hte clear winners of free agency because they signed Erik Johnson to a steal of contract.
Then he goes on to say it's ridiculous that David Jones is getting more money than Johnson.

Someone please explain to Gregor how UFA differs from RFA.

Also, Strudwick and Fraser combo was brutal this morning. Also Spector having 2 hours was terrible radio as well. Just shows how valuable Nielson is to the team.

Gregor feels Johnson's a steal and Jones is an overpay. That's his opinion. You think the TEAM's local stuff has been bad today.That's your opinion. I think you need to get your hearing checked. That's my opinion.

Thanks for taking time off your show to chime in Jason.

Gregor is right on EJ. The guy eats up over 20 mins a game, moves the puck well and has a physical side to his game. EJ only got 3.5 per year while WIDEMAN got 5.25, how does that contract not look like a steal now.

Gregor was way off the mark. You can't compare a RFA's contract to a UFA's. You can sure bet that if Johnson was a UFA he'd have signed for a lot more than what he did.

How can anyone argue that even as an RFA, EJ wasn't a steal? Even Avs fans had him pegged at 4.5/season

Is Smid a steal?

What does EJ do that Smid doesn't?

Right now Smid is a steal.


My god does Edmonton radio suck ass. How many times do I need to hear the same guys interviewed? We get it Hordi knows his role and love Kreuger. I know Smyth wants to be here and loves where the team is going.

You do realize the average person doesn't listen to their radio 90% of the day while the other 10% on HF? The average listener has a much shorter Time Spent Listening, so that's why it's played more often... It's the beggining of July... What else do you want to hear about on sports radio? Listen to 8 hours a day about the Edmonton Rush?

I don't even listen to the radio all that much, just caught a half hour or so the past week. What else would I like to hear? How about the other major sports?

The problem is that listeners like me (and a healthy portion of the this City) don't care about the other major sports and immediately tune out.

That's why both CHED and The Team 1260 have added more hockey programming.

RFA? Wasn't Price an RFA that got UFA money? Sometimes it's not always black & white.

Well, for one thing, I would argue Price would get more than 6.5 on that term in the UFA market. For another, the difference is in how many years of UFA status you burn.

For example, it's probable the Oilers would be able to retain Taylor Hall and/or Jordan Eberle at much lower cap-hits on a four year deal than they would on a 7 year deal, because a 4 year deal takes them to their first year of UFA eligibility where a 7 year eats three seasons of UFA status. Price burned more years with his extension.

Team added more hockey because American programming was too much. They need to get rid of some local hockey and at the very least add some TSN radio or something.
