-We let Bryan rant about the team giving up on Mike Yeo

-Ben makes a point about the Wild, which was his last point of the podcast

-Giles and Bryan tell their stories about being at two different Game 7s in Denver

-We get the Bryan Reynolds:Edmonton Oiler Villain Origin story

-We talk about the Stadium Series and how much we don't care, except Giles is going

-The everlasting beauty of the North Stars jerseys is discussed

-Many beers were drank, but no Texans were harmed

ColdOmaha.com's Tom Schreier is our return guest, and was kind enough to let us use his fancy studio to record the longest and best sounding Giles & The Goalie yet.

In the wake of Mike Yeo's firing, Giles, Ben and Tom leave no stone unturned when it comes to the reason and ramifications.

Ben talks a lot, Tom laughs, Giles sighs. This is a theme.

How much of this was on Yeo?

How much of this is on Chuck Fletcher?

Should Fletcher be fired?

Is it time for a Captaincy change?

What to expect from this team going forward, and what everyone wants to see.

A brief look at the upcoming roadtrip, and some Flames jersey talk to lighten the mood.

Finally, some shop talk on team media access.
