Today's episode of the Canucks Army podcast features Russian hockey writer Andrey Osadchenko. You may have read his awesome interview with Sergei Shirokov on this blog yesterday.

Today's episode is a bit of a different breed from the ones we've had here previously. First of all, Andrey came over to my apartment and we recorded the podcast live. Secondly, it was really, really hot in my apartment - so we drank a number of beers before and during the recording process. As a result it's a bit more lively than some of our previous work.

We covered a lot of ground - re-hashing the Shirokov interview, discussing Filatov's new opportunity in Ottawa, Zherdev's continued joblessness (which Cam Charron also wrote about today), the Varlamov trade, Ovechkin's beer belly and Kuznetsov. Andrey tells some funny stories and gives us an interesting perspective into the game from the point of view of a professional Russian hockey journalist

Wow, awesome podcast. Very, very interesting to get that unique perspective and to have our very own Russian insider. Only complaint is that you didn't ask Andrey about his run-ins with Artem Chubarov.
