West Coast Bias on NHL Radio with Farhan and Pfeiffer

Guests Farhan Lalji and Darrin Pfeiffer joined us for the March 16, 2014 edition of West Coast Bias on NHL Network Radio.

Things kicked off in high style when Farhan Lalji of TSN joined Jonathan Davis and I for the opening segment. We discussed all things Vancouver Canucks – including Luongo leaving, how likely the likelihood of John Tortorella being fired, Ryan Kesler’s landing spot this summer, what to do with the Sedin’s and much more. He also weighs in with his opinions on the Ducks, Kings, and Sharks come playoff time.

Darrin Pfeiffer, the drummer of punk band Goldfinger and a long-time Buffalo Sabres fan, joined us later in the show. As he explained, his allegiances have slightly shifted to the LA Kings. Well, until the meet up in a Stanley Cup Final (like that will happen anytime soon). He also tells some great stories though about the old Aud in Buffalo, touring, and to what lengths he will go to to watch NHL hockey.
