This week on The Hockey News Radio Show with Adam Proteau and Jim 'Boomer' Gordon on XM Satellite Radio Home Ice Channel 204:

As usual, Adam and Boomer are your hosts for THN Radio. In the first block of the show, Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher calls in to discuss his team's improved play, the difficulties faced by Colin Campbell and the NHL's hockey operations department when handing out punishment or making tough video replay calls, and what it was like to see Wayne Gretzky play for Edmonton in the heyday of 'The Battle of Alberta''.

In the second block, St. Louis defenseman Eric Brewer joins the show to discuss the apparent increase in injuries to all NHLers, the Blues' maturation process, and the state of the NHL Players' Association.

In the final segment, the Ask Adam mailbag brings debate on the logic behind the NHL's "code", how technology has affected a referee's job, and how much credit Evgeni Nabokov deserves for his past successes with San Jose.
