In the feature interview, Matt Read of the Philadelphia Flyers was kind enough to join us from Sweden. Among other things, he talked to us about his experience playing in Europe on Carl Hagelin's line, the transition from college to the NHL and why he was so good in the neutral-zone battle.

In the first part of the show, Kent Wilson stepped into our roundtable discussion. After Kent gave us the lowdown on NHLnumbers and the Nations Network, we talked about the lockout. Find out when we think the lockout will end and what the implications will be on fan support and the image of the league.

Really good questions, guys. I don't think players have ever been asked this stuff before.

Cheers.

I was very impressed with Matt Read. I think it's pretty clear that our questions were outside his comfort zone. He said "that's a good question", which is really another way to say it's one he'll have to think about for a second, a number of times.

Instead of shutting down and giving two-word cliches he got into it and gave us thoughtful answers that give us insight into how he sees the game, which is exactly what we are looking for. It's especially impressive since he's a younger guy who doesn't have years of experience dealing with the media.

Matt was captain of the Bemidji State team for three seasons and is very articulate. He has always been a class act and a hard worker who is conscientious of his team and team mates. I respect Matt a lot, as he has represented himself and his former clubs very well. Your questions were really good and I enjoyed hearing his responses. Thanks Reado and the NHLNumbers guys!
