This week on The Hockey News Radio Show with Adam Proteau and Jim 'Boomer' Gordon on XM Satellite Radio Home Ice Channel 204:

Boomer and Adam return for the first 2011 edition of THN Radio. In the opening segment, Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke joins the show from Atlanta and discusses the World Junior Championship, the Maple Leafs' development, Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel's status as franchise players, and recent incidents in which hockey teams have banned media members from covering them.

In the second block, THN Web Editor Rory Boylen calls in to continue the discussion on the WJC, including his THN.com column on whether or not success at the tournament always translates into success at the NHL level, as well as the Montreal Canadiens' blueline, and Mike Commodore's request to be traded by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

In the final block, Phoenix Coyotes leading scorer Keith Yandle calls the show to discuss the WJC, his burgeoning NHL career, and the rise in popularity of Twitter maniac Paul Bissonnette. As well, an abbreviated Ask Adam mailbag deals with questions on Ilya Kovalchuk's point-producing ability, and the reasons why the Buffalo Sabres have fallen in the standings this season.
