Please take a moment to leave a rating and a review for the show in your podcast app. It helps us out a great deal and only takes a second. It's great to have football back on the calendar and great to have AJ back on the show. We spoke about how AJ is doing and how much he's looking forward to getting back in to his booth, that time a bad REDBLACKS stretch drove him to have a pint during his broadcast, what to expect out of this year's Ottawa REDBLACKS team, whether RNation should be concerned about the arm of their new quarterback, why it's so difficult making predictions for this season, teams to keep an eye on, the problems with this year's schedule and plenty more. And since AJ was here anyway - we even threw a little Sens talk on to the back end. Catch AJ every weekday from 2-6PM on The Drive on TSN 1200 and follow him on Twitter @TheSuperAJ.

    Great big show today as Matt is joined by the best hockey analyst in the business - Ray Ferraro of TSN and ESPN. If you'd like to support TCA and help us to continue to land great guests like this we'd love it if you'd take a moment to leave a rating and a review on your podcast app. It only takes a second and helps other people discover the show. Over the last couple weeks the hockey world absolutely blew up with news as we had NHL Free Agency, the Entry Draft and the Seattle Kraken Expansion Draft so what better time to speak to Ray Ferraro about just what's gone down. We ask him about his move to ESPN and how it was decided he'd continue to work the World Juniors and Toronto Maple Leafs broadcasts for TSN, whether being married to a Seattle Kraken scout has helped him land any inside information, what this season was like for a broadcaster calling games off the monitor, whether the salary cap is slowly turning fans against players based more on what they're paid than on their talent, whether Kyle Dubas is making the right decision in sticking with the Big 4 in Toronto and tons more. We were thrilled Ray made some time to rejoin the Tall Can Audio podcast and we think you'll really enjoy today's show. Give us a follow on social media @TallCanAudio
