The guys are joined by Nick Seguin from Wings Nation this week as he fills in for Joel and they touch on the state of the Detroit Red Wings, including if Ken Holland and Jeff Blashill are the right people to turn around the Wings. They also go through the news of the week, including:
– The NHL has officially stated that they will not be going to the Olympics. Does it matter? Is the World Cup of Hockey enough of a “best on best”
– Brad Marchand was suspended 2 games for his spear on Jake Dotchin. Was it enough? Does Marchand need to be stopped?
– The playoffs start this week and there is 1 spot left up for grabs. Who gets it between the Toronto Maple Leafs, Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Islanders?
– Three playoff matchups are known so far: Penguins/Bluejackets, Rangers/Canadiens and Oilers/Sharks. What can be expected from these series and some of the likely other series?
Also, playoff Hi Sticking is back, where every game is a Pavel Bure. Who will you pick to be the game winning goal scorer?
