MDUTPH- The Reload With Bob Strumm Episode #3 - Guest Jody Shelley

August 06, 2022 17:00 - 1 hour - 42.1 MB

Johnny Gaudreau wanted the Flyers. It was a case of unrequited love.  The Blue Jackets decided that they were ready for a relationship, acquiring the best free agent available this off season. A tale of two cities and two General Managers.   What the hell happened? Also, did Calgary have a fine offseason despite the loss of two stars? Is speed really the only way to win in this league? Strummer has been a hockey man all his life, culminating in his turn as Director of Pro Scouting for ...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Season 2 Episode 8 - Glen Macnow

July 29, 2022 17:00 - 49 minutes - 34.1 MB

"You lost to your enemy and you hated your enemy but in the end you respected them." WIP host. He was integral in building the second 24 hour sports talk station in the country.    He created a long form program that really inspired me to do this whole messy fun podcast. Tell Us Your Story. Glen Macnow. He saw the Flyers win their second (and yes last) Cup against the Buffalo Sabres.  As a Sabres fan.   But he moved on to Philly and like Al and Jayson and Angelo and Sam, he is as much a...

July 26, 2022 20:00 - 1 hour - 43 MB

"I think the frustration is 'Where's the Plan?" "I will say that a lot of new players come in and open their eyes to an empty arena and ask...what happened?' Flyers fans are angry at the team. But who doesn't love Al? Al Morganti is a Hockey Hall of Famer. I may jokes about it but it's well deserved. He has a perspective all  his own.  He is part of Flyers History. This is The Reload. How bad teams get good and good teams get better. Bob Strumm, my co-host, know more about hockey than ...

July 07, 2022 19:00 - 1 hour - 44.4 MB

"He walked 100 miles with a 100 pound bag of flour to start a new life." Our ancestors have similar stories. Always nice to have a fellow Ukrainian on.  Flyer Alumni member Jeff Chyrchrun was not only a great player but an outspoken advocate of Ukraine and it's courageous struggle against Russian invasion. His son is pretty good at the game too. Jeff is both a great hockey story and a great Uke story. He is featured prominently here: https://www.amazon.com/UKE-Untold-Story-Hockey-Legen...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Season 2 Episode 6 - Terry O'Reilly

June 08, 2022 19:00 - 1 hour - 48.7 MB

"He showed that's how it's done. If you want to be good you have to work, work, work. Ask anybody on the Bullies team who was their most vicious opponent and one name will come up over and over and over. Taz. (Like the devil) Terry O'Reilly. #24 for the Boston Bruins.   A legendary franchise retired his number. He moved away from hockey because of family. But he's always part of the hockey family.   Fans hate him way more than anyone he played against. You might not believe it buddies, ...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Season 2 Episode 5 - Mike Keenan

May 16, 2022 12:00 - 54 minutes - 37.4 MB

Keenan's Kids, as they are now affectionately called, almost brought Philly not one but two Stanley Cups. Almost. So close. But you know.....the Oilers. The head of that team was controversial (to understate his reputation) Mike Keenan. Iron Mike. He is known as fierce, vindictive, and sometimes petty.  But he gets results. And most of his players love him.  Most of them. He got his Cup.  With the Rangers. Dammit. Separate the myth from the truth of Coach Mike Keenan. Get to know him...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Season 2 Episode 1 - Russ Farwell

March 09, 2022 02:00 - 42 minutes - 29.4 MB

June 30th 1992.  Eric Lindros becomes a Flyer.  Admit it you were excited.  But we gave away a lot.   Hello Lindros. Goodbye Forsberg. And Hextall and Simon and Ricci. Was it worth it?  My guest is Russ Farwell. The GM for the Flyers from 1990-1994. "If you could have traded for Gretzky at 19 or 20...what's the price?"  “Chuck Fletcher has it a lot easier than I did. Ed Snider doesn't phone him every couple of hours.” It was a dark era for the Flyers. Eric brought light. Russ brought l...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #30 - Andre "Moose" Dupont

December 24, 2021 18:00 - 51 minutes - 35.7 MB

"I left my heart in Philadelphia." Joe Watson co-hosted this one with me and I left it largely unedited. Seeing them reconnect was maybe my favorite moment  of the whole show. I left in all the quirks. Never forget. This team, the Broad Street Bullies, formed a bond that can never be broken. Moose and Joe. I was lucky enough to be there. What a group. What glory. What a special thing. I'm your host Zak Kindrachuk. My dad used to play hockey.

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Bonus #3 - Happy 70th Lynn Kindrachuk

November 12, 2021 20:00 - 2 minutes - 1.93 MB

“It has to be better than last year's” My mom, Lynn Kindrachuk, said this yesterday on the eve of her 70th birthday. November 12th, 2020 wasn't the best. She was turning 69 while quarantining in my great aunt Joanne's basement after crossing the Canadian border to see her sister. Joanne will be with her today. Her sister will not. She passed on. There is a mountain near my parents house in California. There is a monument at the top of it. My aunt Marj, who often visited, called it the plu...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #29 - Dave "Tiger" Williams

November 10, 2021 22:00 - 48 minutes - 33.6 MB

"We can't watch you on Saturday nights in Cincinnati!" "I own a few homes across Canada and Philadelphia paid for most of them." "In the 70's there was a reason you engaged in these activities." 3.971 career penalty minutes. All time leader. But all of them were for a purpose.  He was fearless, loyal, and a thorn in everyone's side. Unless you played with him. As he always says "Team. Team. Team." But to hell with the opponent, whether it be management or the skaters lined up against y...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #28 - Mark Recchi

November 05, 2021 22:00 - 40 minutes - 27.8 MB

Who doesn't like Mark Recchi? A member of both the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame and the NHL Hall of Fame (it somehow took four years of eligibility).  Stanley Cup Champion (five rings). The oldest player to score a goal in the Finals. He retired as a champion. Played for the Bruins, Flyers, Penguins and Canadiens and somehow is hated by none of these fan bases. He's a coach for the Devils now. Still love him. Every team he played for was lucky to have him. Get to know him. I'm yo...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #27 - Chris Therien

November 02, 2021 17:00 - 51 minutes - 35.4 MB

"It's incredible what alcohol does to you, it makes you believe things that aren't true, but what it does to your life in general is just make you a piece of shit." "Someone calls an alcoholic a degenerate for drinking in the morning, it's not that we wanted to drink in the morning, it's that we didn't have a choice." "Dude, if you really wanted me to drink, and I did, you wouldn't have a clue what to do with me." Fans wanted Chris to fight more. Truth is he has been battling addiction f...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #26 - Terry Crisp

October 15, 2021 19:00 - 57 minutes - 39.6 MB

"Freddie, this is the dumbest and most asinine thing I have ever seen." "If you will come back and play next year for us, I will do my best to make hockey fun for you and your teammates." "Did it ever occur to you we would grow old together in Nashville, Tennessee?" Terry Crisp almost quit hockey and became a high school teacher. Instead he became a two time Stanley Cup winner as a player and managed another ring as head coach of the Flames. He most certainly made the right decision. He...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #25 - Theo Fleury

August 27, 2021 20:00 - 59 minutes - 40.6 MB

"We're in the business of winning, and when you don't win you should be upset and you should be pissed off." "My addiction manifested itself after my sexual abuse happened." "I share something that is one of the deepest darkest secrets in the world." "Your dad was a tough son of a bitch." The best player not in the Hall of Fame. We know why.  And it's not right. He's 16 years sober. Helping others get there. Stanley Cup Champion.  Over 1,000 points. Survivor. Thanks, Theo. I'm your ...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #24 - Mike Milbury

August 18, 2021 20:00 - 43 minutes - 29.6 MB

"I was mistreated. I was betrayed. I feel like I was taken advantage of so they could make themselves look like a part of a woke moment." "Probably the single most awful thing I did is I took the shoe and threw it on the ice so he had to go home with one shoe off and one shoe on." "I really don't give a shit." That last quote really sums up Mike Milbury.  For 46 years he was an integral part of NHL History. A lot of people love him. A lot more hate him. He's ok with that. But think you ...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #23 - Danny Briere

August 13, 2021 18:00 - 49 minutes - 34.3 MB

"I don't think I miss the regular season that much, but I do miss the playoffs." "Pain is never going to stop you. Your body is going to tell you when to stop." "Once you're a Flyer, you're always a Flyer." Did anyone  shine in big moments more than Danny?  One of the greatest postseason performers in NHL history. A future (in my mind) NHL General Manager. Danny Briere. Get to know him. I'm your host Zak Kindrachuk. My dad used to play hockey. Haddon Planning Group Since 1981, we'v...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #22 - Eddie Olczyk

August 03, 2021 19:00 - 58 minutes - 40.4 MB

"I was ready to quit. I was ready to die." "I met President Ronald Reagan. We had a parade for the team in DC." "Every player has a role. It's incredibly hard to win Stanley Cups." "Survivor's guilt is a real thing, and it's ok to talk about it." "I had enough quiet time to last a lifetime." Eddie Olczyk.  One of the American pioneers of the NHL. A member of the US Hockey Hall of Fame. Stanley Cup champion (yeah, THAT Ranger team). He wouldn't agree, but he's also an NHL broadcasting l...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #21 - Bill Clement

July 20, 2021 20:00 - 57 minutes - 39.6 MB

If you've watched hockey over the past 40 years you know this man. Bill Clement. He put the finishing touches on the second Cup win, scoring a late goal (assisted by my dad who took the most vicious hit of his career on the play). He was the first Bully to be traded after that. To Washington. It was tough leaving Philadelphia. He's had quite a career, both on and off the ice, and remains one of the most iconic broadcasters in NHL history. He once embarrassed himself in front of Al Micha...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #20 - John LeClair

July 10, 2021 02:00 - 33 minutes - 23.1 MB

Only overshadowed by the LCB line is the second greatest trio in Flyers history.  The Legion of Boom. The center and both wingers over 6 feet tall and over 220 pounds.  Imagine facing that.  John LeClair was one of the greatest goal scorers I ever had the pleasure to watch.  This guy should get a lot more HOF buzz.  One of the best Americans ever to play the game. Career stats: SUMMARY Career GP 967 G 406 A 413 PTS 819 +/- 204

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #19 - Dave Brown

July 10, 2021 01:00 - 39 minutes - 26.9 MB

"He was a dirty player. He deserved it." Yes, there was nothing in Flyers history like the Broad Street Bullies. But there was one almost. The mid-80's team. Tough. Skilled. Ferocious. And the toughest one of them all was Dave Brown. One of the NHL's greatest enforcers.  A Bruise Brother. One of my favorites growing up for reasons you'll hear in the episode. He later went on to win a Cup with, ironically, the hated Oilers. But he's a Flyer. Always a Flyer. And Tomas Sandstrom deserved t...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #18 - Steve Coates

July 10, 2021 00:00 - 39 minutes - 27 MB

"I've got a breakaway! And at the neutral zone....my groin just pops." It was a funny career and he's a funny man.  No one is arguing for him, as a player, to be a Hall of Famer. But he's as intrinsic to the Flyers as anyone in history. Coatesy's Corner, the Flyers intermission show, was the best part of the franchise for almost a decade. He never scored an NHL goal but his story on blowing his best chance is one of the best hockey stories you will ever hear. Steve Coates. He's Alumni. ...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #17 - Bob "The Hound" Kelly

June 29, 2021 18:00 - 37 minutes - 25.8 MB

"Then he's out there running around like an idiot. I go out and line up beside him in the face-off and I say 'Lookit...if you don't knock this shit off, we're gonna find out who's tougher...me or you.'" Mad Dog. Scourge of the Red Army. The Hound.  Grass Fairy? Bob Kelly had a lot of nicknames. No player in the history of the league played the game quite like him.  He was as tenacious and fierce as any Flyer who ever put on the uniform.  Scored the game winning goal on the way to Cup #2...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #15 - Willie O'Ree

June 06, 2021 23:00 - 35 minutes - 24.7 MB

This is a first for the show because he was a first for hockey.  2 years before the Boston Red Sox, the Boston Bruins had the first black member of their storied franchise. Willie O'Ree. He was also the first black player in NHL history. Beyond that, he did it all without vision in one eye.  He's an NHL Hall of Famer. One of the true ambassadors of the game. And my dad's former teammate during his time in San Diego.   Some moments are bigger than the game.  Get to know him. I'm your h...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #13 - Dave Poulin

May 24, 2021 22:00 - 1 hour - 42.1 MB

“It was Keenan and I who went to the hospital to identify him.” “He took us down to the end of the dock, and said and I got something to tell you, I'm going to retire when I get back.” “I wasn't good enough is the short answer.” He almost took a sales job with Procter and Gamble, giving up pro hockey forever. He was told he was told too small too many times. He lost a friend and a teammate. He had to take over for Bobby Clarke. Imagine. He was the first captain I remember as a Flyers ...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #12 - Eric Lindros

May 20, 2021 22:00 - 40 minutes - 27.9 MB

“There's frustration from that. There's a fair bit of depression that goes with it. You go from being a real good player in the league to a couple years later struggling to skate through the middle of the ice.” “It really gives you a chance to remember the sacrifices your family made.” “Johnny would fly down the boards. We'd start the game with possession in their corner.” Eric Lindros was the greatest power forward (the greatest player) in the game for half a decade. Things happened.  H...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #11 - Bobby Clarke

May 19, 2021 19:00 - 50 minutes - 34.8 MB

“The majority of players never win the Cup. When you accomplish it, that's something, that's not matchable.” “I took the Flyers general manager job anyway, and wasn't ready for it.” "My loyalty was always to Mr. Snider. I doubt I would have come back if it wasn't for him.” THE Captain. The greatest Flyer. My dad's teammate. Just a regular Flin Flon native. The leader of the Broad Street Bullies. Bobby Clarke. 47 years after the first cup. Get to know him a little bit better. I'm your ...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #8 - Grant Fuhr

May 14, 2021 18:00 - 35 minutes - 24.5 MB

“They all think it's fun and games, and that other problems in life don't exist. Which is not true, sometimes they are amplified.” “You start to think. And as a goalie the worst thing you can do is think” It barely seems fair that the Edmonton Oilers squad from the 1980's, with names like Gretzky, Kurri and Messier, would also have a hall of fame goaltender. But they did. Grant Fuhr. He had some legendary battles with the Flyers.  He also battled addiction. And overcame it. He's an insp...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Episode #10 - Bryan Trottier

May 14, 2021 06:00 - 53 minutes - 36.8 MB

“Anytime anyone looked at me, he beat the crap out of 'em” “We were young and dumb and i think that helps.” “Thank you, Mario!” I am programmed to hate him. As a Flyers fan Bryan Trottier is on the long list (and growing longer) of players you immediately booed. An Islander. A Penguin.  Six Stanley Cups as a player. One more as a coach. I like him now. After this interview, how could you not? He's an absolute joy.  One of the greatest of all time.  A true NHL treasure. Bryan Trottier...

My Dad Used to Play Hockey Bonus #2 - (Happy Mother's Day)

May 09, 2021 15:00 - 2 minutes - 2 MB

She never got the chance to lace up the skates but she's as tough as anyone who did. Her name isn't on the Cup. But without her, my dad's wouldn't be either.  He was a Broad Street Bully. A brute. But that's only half the story of that legendary team and their everlasting impact on the great city of Philadelphia. The other half lies in people like Lynn Kindrachuk, my mother. Dad was a rough and tumble guy who played on broad street. Mom was a tough broad. Is a tough broad. While this pod...
