The NHL season is paused. Ron Duguay opens this week’s episode of the “Up In The Blue Seats” podcast talking about the coronavirus pandemic and what he has been doing during this strange, scary time. He also explains what the NHL could do if and when the season resumes in the summer.

NY Post Rangers beat writer Larry Brooks then drops by. Brooks talks about his life without hockey and what he enjoys doing away from the rink. He also looks at some of the biggest differences between players in the past versus players today. The Hall of Fame writer examines when the season might return and lays out some different playoff formats the league could use.

Former Ranger Sean Avery then joins the show. Avery talks about his playing career, how players have changed over the years, private jets and team chemistry, why he wrote a book, his “No F*cks Given” podcast and what else he’s doing these days.

Avery also talks about the old two-week Olympics break and how it would lead to some fun down time for players. The outspoken Avery discusses the comparisons made between him and Brendan Lemieux and how the young Rangers player can improve. He explains his life now as an actor, including some previous and upcoming movie roles.
