The Block Party

Feb 27, 2023

On this week's Block Party, Greg Wolf and Braydon Coburn are joined by Tampa Bay Lightning Founder Phil Esposito as he's been selected as part of the Lightning Hall of Fame's Inaugural Class. They discuss when he had the idea to start an NHL expansion franchise, why he chose Tampa, getting the investors to make it happen, other stories from the last 30 years, how he treated players as a GM and owner, how the game of hockey has changed over the last 50 years and his thoughts on guys like Vinny Lecavalier, Marty St. Louis and Dave Andreychuk.
