In today’s podcast, Sal and Tim (@TheRealDFG) talk abut the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, including some of the preliminary matches, as well as the upcoming tournament games. They also discuss ESPN’s coverage — or lack thereof — in the United States, the uniforms and the World Cup Trophy that no one likes very much.

Speaking of unlikable trophies, here is the World Cup Trophy, which was designed by Frank Gehry and first awarded in 2004.

And here’s the original World Cup of Hockey Trophy, that was only used in the 1996 tournament.

Finally, here’s a picture of the O’Brien Trophy, which might make a more suitable award than the current World Cup Trophy.
