The guys are back and so is NHL hockey in Seattle! Okay, so it’s new to the city, but it’s coming, and are here to break down all of the implications of it, including how this effects the NHL’s potential upcoming work stoppage and what it means for the alignment of the divisions. Zach Hyman was suspended two games this week. Which raises a few questions, such as “Huh?” and “Oh really?” The NHL is bringing purple pucks to the Winter Classic. Or invisible pucks if you ask the right people. What kind of games is the NHL playing with the puck? A spin isRead More →

The guys are back and so is William Nylander! William Nylander and the Toronto Maple Leafs have finally agreed to terms on a new contract. How happy is Joel? The Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche faced off which meant that one of us lost a bet and Tyler Bertuzzi was suspended for fighting someone from the bench. Should it have been allowed? The NHL Board of Governors is meeting, which means that we get to hear Gary Bettman talk (yeah!) about things such as: – The salary cap going up – The Seattle Future NHL Team being an actual team – Being another personRead More →

The guys are back and another person has been fired in the NHL. This time it was Ron Hextall, being removed as the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers. What direction will the Flyers go now that the architect of their franchise is gone? The Arizona Coyotes traded Dylan Strome, along with Brendan Perlini, to the Chicago Blackhawks for Nick Schmaltz. Did they give up too soon on Strome? Carl is in love with Mikko Rantanen. But how much? He plays a game of Would You Rather. Which, somehow, rekindles the Blake Wheeler contract debate. With the William Nylander contract situation about to be resolved, howRead More →

Growing up in the 90’s few rivalries in the NHL came anywhere close to matching the Red Wings and Avalanche. It was hockey. They were talented, fast, physical, and most importantly, couldn’t stand the sight of each other. From the infamous Claude Lemieux hit on Chris Draper to Patrick Roy losing the puck after showboating on a save against Steve Yzerman, only to drop it and allow Detroit score, helping to force Game 7, their playoff match ups were the stuff of legend, leaving no shortage of memorable moments. From 1995 to 2002 they won 5 of 8 Stanley Cups, with Detroit losing in theRead More →

The guys are back and ready to break down the news of the week in the NHL. Todd McLellan was fired by the Edmonton Oilers and Mike Yeo was fired by the St. Louis Blues. Is this the right direction for these organizations or just band-aids to fix a bigger issue? Specifically looking at Edmonton, on the heals of the Ryan Spooner for Ryan Strome deal, the question must be asked, “When will Peter Chiarelli be fired as well?” Carl Hagelin was dealt by the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Los Angeles Kings for Tanner Pearson. Is this the move that will kickstart the Penguins? TheRead More →

Carl, Joel and Nick are back to discuss the news of the week in the NHL, including: The Ottawa Senators private conversation in an Uber was made public, after mocking the coaching staff, which begs the questions: What is the long term implication of this for the Senators, what would Connor McDavid be making fun of and how big was the Uber driver’s vehicle? Joel Quenneville was fired by the Chicago Blackhawks. What’s the best fit for him as a head coach moving forward? The new class is being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, including Gary Bettman and Martin Brodeur. Has Gary BettmanRead More →
