West Coast Bias on NHL Radio with Duthie and Baker

Guests James Duthie and Ken Baker joined us for the February 23, 2014 edition of West Coast Bias on NHL Network Radio.

Trade rumors and fallout from the Olympic medal games were the major topics of conversation this week – and to help Jonathan Davis and I with all the debates, we were joined by Mr. Trade Deadline Guy himself, James Duthie of TSN. Also joining in on the fun was goaltender Ken Baker of E News. During the two hour episode we gave out plenty of info, including two big name coaches who may not be back behind the bench next season with their current teams, told you which defenseman is likely coming to LA (as well as which forward is being shopped), reviewed all the goaltending performances in the Olympic medal games, plus talked San Jose Sharks, Anaheim Ducks, Buffalo Sabres, New York Rangers, Vancouver Canucks and much more.
