Listen to Behind the Moves author Jason Farris speak with Leigh Anne Power:
About Leigh Anne:
When Leigh Anne was five months old in Placentia, she watched the Canada/Russia Summit series on her father’s knee. At that time, she saw the great Serge Savard, Yvan Cournoyer and Ken Dryden in action, and a Habs fan was born. Since then, she has happily witnessed the Habs win seven of their twenty-four Cups, including their last in 1993, the year before she graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with a Bachelor of Journalism degree. That same year, she began work as a writer/broadcaster at CBC in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. In 1997, she moved to Gander to work as a reporter and became the Morning Show co-host in 2006. She is still waiting for Carey Price to lead the Habs to their 25th Stanley Cup.
Jason talks with Jody about interviewing every living NHL GM who has taken a team to the Stanley Cup Final:
Born and raised in Vancouver, Vance was the first woman in Canadian television to host her own sports program in prime time, a position she held on Sportsnet for six years, starting in 2000. More recently, she was host of Seeking Stanley on the CBC, a program that followed the Vancouver Canucks’ exciting NHL playoff run. Previously, she worked for Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment doing live, unscripted pre- and post-game broadcasts for all of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ home games.
Thanks to video games and fantasy sports, a lot of us figure we could build a winning National Hockey League team, but author Jason Farris decided to ask the people who really knew.
Farris interviewed every living NHL general manager that had taken a team to the Stanley Cup finals for his new book, Behind The Moves: NHL General Managers Tell How Winners Are Built.

Join Shane Malloy and Russ Cohen as they interview Behind the Moves author Jason Farris today at 1pm EST on Sirius XM – Hockey Prospect Radio.
About Hockey Prospects Radio:
Before they make the NHL, they are showcasing their talents in the many minor and junior leagues across North America and the World. Join NHL HOME ICE every week for a peak into the future with Prospects – tomorrow’s stars, today. Wherever they’re playing, we’ll track them down – in this hourly scouting guide for young stars everywhere.
Whether it’s reviewing, replaying, discussing or deciding – this is the place to be. And one thing’s for certain – when it comes to opinion – this means war. Hosted by the always entertaining Mick Kern and the outspoken Peter Berce, they’ll take a stand, they’ll take callers and they’ll take no prisoners.
Take a listen as they interview Behind the Moves author Jason Farris:
Peter Berce is co-Host of the War Room and all around great guy (at least that’s what they tell him). He has been in broadcasting for 9 years starting as a producer in Toronto, Canada. He’s a CNN junkie (loves that Kyra Phillips). His favorite hockey player is Anze Kopitar of the LA Kings and his pound for pound best player in the NHL is Jarome Iginla of the Calgary Flames.
A Night Owl who never gets to bed until after the 2 am sports highlight shows are over, Mick is now part of Hockey This Morning, and continues his tour-of-duty on The War Room. He has talked hockey with most of the big names in the sport, but still hasn’t had the opportunity to interview Len Frig, Pat Ribble, Yves Belanger, Ken Houston, and Mike Christie. Mick is still haunted by the memory of Dale Hunter’s overtime goal in 1982, and refuses to recognize the Boston Bruins as the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions.
