Thanks, I am using the free trial of xm radio to listen to it...waiting for Gainey to go on air....

Bettman just referred to Bob Gainey as GM and executive VP I did not know he was also our Vice President...

I tuned in, Gainey was there for a short period. He spoke about his son playing in ECHL that is why he was in Bingmington NY or whatever it was called.
He spoke a little about the rule change he mentioned at the board of governor's meeting...(No sliding full body on ground to block shots)

He also spoke about his younger days breaking out as a player and his whole nhl career and his career in management, from France to USA...
He talked about Peterborough and how it was full of his mates for minor hockey etc how it helped him come into hockey and feel more comfortable.
That is all I remember off hand, no mention of Valentenko's "defection".

I remember being so hyped registering for my free trial to hear Gainey for a full hour with Bettman...

Turned out Bettman did host the show for an hour and took lots of callers.

I remember feeling ripped off that Gainey had so little air time but to be fair he was calling himself I believe...He was not actually in the Studio.

Honestly little of the habs was spoken about a little of the alumni, Mario Tremblay etc and the ex habs gang now at the Minn. Wild.

I remember at end sighing...I really expected more...honestly it was nothing special.

Is Gainey Radio Interview Available?

Anyone know where I can find the link to yesterday's (Oct 30) interview with Gainey on the NHL Hour with Bettman? I don't see it posted on NHL.com

Did anyone listen to it? Please report.
