If they can arrange it, YES
Is Hacksaw available?
Of course they should! Saying that they shouldn't do this is just tucking tail and running from a challenge. Sure, there may not be a whole lot of ratings in the beginning, but they need to CREATE the dialogue. People who don't understand the game enough, but casually enjoyed watching the playoffs have a seed planted inside them now. There needs to be a platform where they can LEARN the nuances of the game. Why does a player work/not work playing right wing vs left?What the hell is a puck moving defenseman? Which line combinations work and why? How can we improve the power play? How come Jonathan Quick is both feared and criticized by fans of other teams? What is Corsi and what does that have to do with winning?
The NFL, NBA, and MLB are dynamos in comparison to the NHL in the way they bring the casual fan closer to the game and illustrate the fine point details. They are constantly educating their fanbases as to how the game works, what it takes to be successful, and what separates certain players abilities above other players. The Kings casual fan base gets very little of this. They need information to grow their interest and be able to really have opinions about the team!
When Gretzky came to LA it wasn't a one and done "I guess there are no hockey fans here" thing.", there was an interest created that was nurtured that is responsible for creating many of the knowledgeable fans of the Kings today.
I listened to Chicago's stations during that series, even though they weren't Kings fans it was so awesome to listen to them dialogue about their team, nicknames for line combos they liked mixed in with tales of players from the past, looking at plus minus for Keith and debating for 20 minutes with caller after caller discussing whether or not it was reflective of his game.
Stats and stories, thats what fans dig these days, give it to them!
It's not something that happens overnight, but there has to be a medium for fans to really engage so they can become armchair experts of the game...
The casual fans of the Kings may not be ready for a lot of the advanced stuff yet, but there are plenty of things to draw them in. They should bring on Stu Grimson and a Lady Bing winner and have a debate about fighting in the league and why it needs to stay VS why it should go.
One could go on for days explaining the unwritten rules about hockey that have a major impact on why the players carry themselves the way they do.
How about all of the crazy superstitions the players have... That alone would be great banter for talk radio.
Obviously I'm just rambling, but there is a point to it all.
Fans love to know everything about everything about the sports they love, and personal stories and such help bring them in. Talk radio is a great way to give it to them.
Cycling is such a major part of the game yet its almost never explained to the fans. How can one know what a "good penalty" is if it's not explained to them?
There are so many people that would become die hard fans and season ticket holders if they just had a little clue of what the hell was even going on out there.
I wouldn't listen. I mean, Kings talk after a game mid-season is already a disaster.
Now, if the developed a "Oil Change" or "Behind the B" type show for FoxSports that wasn't some social media fluff garbage with O'Neil and the tart du jour, count me in.
Y'know what would be progress? Having a damn podcast posted of the post-game/Kings talk after every game. I don't get why it is so difficult for the Kings to do this.
