And what hockey skill would he deploy in grocery shopping if allowed?

08:52     Mark Madden, the “Super Genius” from 105.9X FM.  Does he love hockey or wrestling better?  Who’s the smartest person on radio?  And, putting a “fan hat” on, who are his two favorite hockey icons? (HINT: This is answer could get you 2 tickets to a TSE signing on 2/23.)
