MayorsManor Live Radio – updates from Russia to Phoenix

Soccer is the world’s game? Nah, it’s hockey!

No other professional sport in North America features more international stars. Plus, forget about the Dream Team beating up inferior basketball teams in the Olympics. If you’re looking for a truly competitive tournament at the Games, hockey tops all other team sports. Sure, the US and Canada can field a team capable of winning a gold medal. But, so can more than a handful of other countries.

On today’s show we’ll talk with Dmitry Chesnokov (@dchesnokov) about Russian hockey – both the game over there and some prospects playing here in North America. We’ll also chat with Sarah McLellan (@azc_mclellan) of the Arizona Republic. She’ll give us the up-to-the-minute news on Shane Doan and the Phoenix Coyotes ownership situation.

Here’s a quick list of some of the other topics we’ll cover today:

- Anniversary of the Lokomotiv tragedy and the re-launch of the team

- Alex Ovechkin growing up and the impact of his parents

- NHL players at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

- Alexander Frolov, Kevin Dallman and others playing in the KHL

- Kings 2010 draft pick Maxim Kitsyn

- Kings 2012 draft pick Nikolay Prokhorkin

- Was Slava Voynov really headed back to Russia?

- Is Andrei Loktionov ever going to become a legitimate NHL player?

- Can Edmonton’s Nail Yakupov or St. Louis’ Vladimir Tarasenko win the Calder Trophy this season?

- Where will Shane Doan sign and when?

- Is Coyotes hockey really viable in the Arizona desert?

- What went down in the handshake line between the Kings and Coyotes

- Ray Whitney leaving Phoenix

- And the most important question of them all – Will Mike Smith cut his hair?

Give it a listen now…
