Giles and Ben are joined by a special guest this week, friend of the podcast, Keri Wood. They went to a certain bar in St. Paul to try to record a listenable podcast. The results were mixed.

The Stanley Cup Final is over. But Giles still has something to be angry about.

They talk about the hiring of two new Wild assistant coaches, who also happened to be at the bar that night.

Vanek- to buy out or not to buy out?

A little bit of draft talk and why the next two weeks are very important.

Lots of talk about hockey memes, in both crying Jordan and non-crying Jordan categories.

The three jersey fanatics talk about their holy grail jersey they don't own.

In honor of Phil Kessel, the podcast run time is 81 minutes.
