    Love your podcast!

    Listening to good hockey-talk is a lifeline during the summer,
    and especially during THIS crazy summer.

    I have a special request:

    Is there any way you could interview Steve Kournianos (“The Draft Analyst”)
    regarding the current stable of Kings’ prospects?

    I always find his opinions interesting, even when I disagree with him.

    He watches lots of games and can speak of many prospects from
    the experience of actually seeing them play.

    How about it?

    It would make for a great show, and the fans would be very interested in it, IMO.
