Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier took issue with the notion that they don't give their callers, especially callers with whose opinions they disagree, enough airtime to share those opinions.

On Tuesday's 'Grant & Danny' broadcast, Paulsen relayed that a caller a day earlier -- while he was hosting from Las Vegas with Chris Russell -- had made this point to him. Grant disagreed.

We have that call.

Via caller Rick in Huntington on Monday's broadcast:

Rick: I think you're slightly wrong, and I know you have a short leash on callers, but I'll just say this. It says a lot that Vegas is one of the only three teams in the West that had a chance to win the Stanley Cup. I think Nashville and Winnipeg were the only two teams from the West that had a chance. I think you're totally wrong that Nashville was faster and better than Tampa Bay. I think you're totally wrong about that.

Grant: Nashville or Vegas? What are you referring to?

Rick: No. No. No. What I'm saying is that I think you think that Vegas is better than Tampa Bay or Pittsburgh. I think you're wrong about that. I think there's only three teams from the West that had a chance. I think there's five or six from the East that had a chance. The Caps had a tougher road. Now, I'm not telling you that the Capitals are going to win the Stanley Cup. But what I am telling is that I think they had a tougher road, they showed more resiliency. I think this team is going to run into a brick wall. The only thing I'm worried about is Fleury, who I don't respect, but you have to respect him if you're a Caps fan, because he's stoned you before. And that's all I'm gonna say.

Grant: Cool. I want to know more about this short leash with callers thing. Where does that come from?

Rick: Oh, basically, if you don't agree with the opinion, you tend to hang up. But that doesn't mean I don't like you and that doesn't mean I don't listen.

Grant: I appreciate the call. You're incorrect. Thank you very much.

Grant hung up on Rick at this point.

Instead of letting the moment get away, we thought we'd pose the question to the Grant & Danny listeners directly, with unlimited time to answer (until Friday at 1 p.m., when we close the poll).

There are several ways to dissect this question.

Do they give all of their callers enough time? Do they only give some of their callers enough time?

You interpret. And you decide.
