For the first time in podcast history, we touch on the subject of hockey. And we welcome Chris Snow, a former young stud in the sports writing industry who transitioned into working in the front office of a pro sports team. In our chat, we talk about why Snow would leave a top-notch beat (the Red Sox beat writer for the Boston Globe) and join the Minnesota Wild organization, how long it will take for data-driven information to permeate into the NHL like it does in MLB and the NFL, and what the status is of media coverage of hockey in Canada.

We also discuss whether Snow would like, at some point in his career, to take over an organization’s general manager role.
