New Jersey Devils Podcast Talking Red: Episode #97 - New Season & Peter Stastny Interview

On this week's episode of the New Jersey Devils podcast Talking Red, David Sarch, E.J. Fagan, and John Fischer discuss the Devils' 2-1 win over the Islanders, Travis Zajac's extension, and much more. David also had the honor to interview former Devil and hockey legend Peter Stastny.

It's Sunday and Talking Red comes to you once again to discuss all the important events involved with the New Jersey Devils. On this week's show, E.J. Fagan, David Sarch, and myself go into detail about the Devils' 2-1 win over the Islanders. Let me tell you, it was great to be talking about actual, meaningful games for the first time since June 2012. We also discuss Travis Zajac's contact extension, Bryce Salvador being named as the team captain, the first impression of the new power play, Mattias Tedenby, Stefan Matteau, and whether the Devils still need forward help.

If that wasn't enough, David had the honor to interview former New Jersey Devil, Hockey Hall of Fame forward, Slovak hockey legend, and current member of the European Parliament, Peter Stastny. Stastny was an absolute beast for the Quebec Nordiques and he was one of the first European stars to come over to North America and be an absolute all-star in the NHL. David recommended this video on Stastny in case you're not familiar with him and I recommend watching it as well. He was such a great player. He joined the Devils late in his career but as Stastny told David in the interview, he was very glad to come to New Jersey. Stastny goes into his experiences coming to Quebec, being acquired by the Devils, playing for three different coaches, and how he got into politics. It's one more reason to you shouldn't miss this week's Talking Red.

I'd like to give a big thanks to Peter Stastny for taking the time out of his busy schedule to talk to David about his past career in hockey. I'd also like to thank David for having me on this week's show as well. The usual methods still apply for listening to this week's show. You can get directly at the Talking Red website.
