West Coast Bias on NHL Radio with Matt Nieto and John Ahlers

Guests Matt Nieto of the San Jose Sharks and John Ahlers of the Anaheim Ducks joined us for the December 29, 2013 edition of West Coast Bias on NHL Network Radio.

Jonathan Davis and I hit the airwaves for another night of non-stop hockey talk. We checked in with a few guests following the San Jose Sharks ending Anaheim’s 10-game winning streak. Among the topics discussed and debated, included – the Ducks defense, LA Kings offense, Vegas odds to win the Staley Cup, the outdoor game at Dodger Stadium, Minnesota Wild collapse, Chicago Blackhawks, Emerson Etem, New York Islanders offense, Vancouver Canucks, John Tortorella, St. Louis Blues, Colorado Avalanche, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Alexander Ovechkin, Logan Couture, Dallas Stars, Tyler Seguin, Pittsburgh Penguins, Calgary Flames, trade rumors, 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Team USA goalies, Tomas Hertl injury, Coyotes goalie Mike Smith and much more.
