View from the Penalty Box Podcast Episode 32

It’s been a busy few weeks for Cam Connor so he brings us up to speed on a few fun projects he’s been involved in, including one on Rowdy Roddy Piper’s biography special.

As Steve Durbano stories seem to be popular these days, Cam shares a few Steve Durbano stories, including one doozy of a story that Cam himself can’t believe is true.

Cam talks about the playoffs so far and makes a new prediction.

As the podcast was being recording, news that the Edmonton Oilers may have signed Ken Holland as their new GM was announced, so Cam talks about his thoughts on Ken and will this be the missing piece the Oilers desperately need?

Discussion on the San Jose Sharks/Las Vegas Golden Knights game 7 major call. Was it the right call?

Cam answers a question on his thoughts on Zdeno Chara and why doesn’t anyone take him out/put him in his place? Would Cam have tried to fight Chara back in his day? Kris then asks who the tallest player Cam played against and who was the smallest?

A funny story of when Kris was five years old and he got into Cam’s ammonia capsules/smelling salts.
