One on One was joined by not only the voice of the NHL on NBC and NBC Sports, but a member of WFUV, Doc Emrick.

Shifting back to the U.S., Doc talked about the Ryan Miller trade to the St. Louis Blues from the Buffalo Sabres, and addressed the deadline concerns of the three local teams, the Rangers, Devils, and Islanders.
