NHL: Nashville Predators at Colorado Avalanche Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

It’s the summer of Ryan Ellis!

After much worry and anticipation, the great bearded one signed a contract to stay in Nashville for the next nine years. His very team friendly deal was surprising to some, including Ryan Ellis himself.

Wait, no, not that Ryan Ellis. That Ryan Ellis.

Yes, the NASCAR driving Ryan Ellis!

Ryan stopped by the podcast to discuss name confusion, salary differences between race-car drivers and NHL players, and much more, including:

  • The insane similarities between himself and our Ryan Ellis
  • How to embrace the confusion and just go with it (plus he reveals the infamous moment in which he first realized how crazy things can get when your namesake gets in a fight with another hockey player)
  • The Capitals’ Cup win
  • Crosby/Penguins hate
  • Santa Con! (??)
  • The danger of walls

This was a fun, silly discussion about hockey and racing and I hope you enjoy it.

By the way...
