On this week’s X-Treme Threads Lacrosse Classified, we remember the Humboldt Broncos tragedy of a year ago, recap all of Week 17’s action in the NLL and question who is in charge of the 3-star selection at some NLL games. Rhys Duch and Andrew Suitor join us on the show.
Our first guest is righty forward Rhys Duch of the Calgary Roughnecks and Victoria Shamrocks. Duch was the longest serving member of the Vancouver Stealth before being released by the team before the start of this season and being picked up almost immediately by the Roughnecks, before leading the early season charge by the Roughnecks in the absence of Curtis Dickson and Wes Berg.
Our second guest is Andrew Suitor of the New England Black Wolves and the Peterborough Lakers. The nine season veteran with prior stints in Minnesota, New England, Rochester and Vancouver, Suitor is a grinding defender that isn’t afraid to drop the mitts, and is perhaps most famous for his two fights with Geoff Snider.
We wrap things off with another edition of Stampede Tack #WhoYaGot, where Evan has expanded his lead to six games and Jake starts to take risks to try to catch up with just three weeks remaining in the regular season. We also discuss NLL division realignment and feedback on the expansion draft article, including one interesting situation in Philly.
