On a Thanksgiving Monday, Carl and Joel are back to talk about the first week of the hockey season! In a week that included a combined NINE goals from Auston Matthews and John Tavares, how is Joel feeling about his Maple Leafs? Carl’s Avalanche have started undefeated, so he must finally be happy, right? Injuries have started to hit the league, with Roberto Luongo, Jonathan Quick and James van Riemsdyk already missing time. How will their teams fill in for them while they’re gone? Tom Wilson has been suspended 20 games for his hit on Oskar Sundqvist. Is this enough to convince Tom to change? Brad MarchandRead More →

After ridding themselves of the goose eggs in the win column (vs. Rangers), the Buffalo Sabres look to string two, or more, together. Heading into today’s matinee (3pm. Also a Hi Sticking game. Play it on Twitter), the 31st place team from last season faces one that was in the Stanley Cup Finals. Despite matching records, the Vegas Golden Knights have proven to be a fast team, which is typically the achilles heel for Buffalo. The Sabres have acquired faster hockey players though it has not made game-play much better. Game 1 was horrendous while they scrapped by the New York Rangers in number 2.Read More →

The Colorado Avalanche started their 2018-2019 campaign at home against the Minnesota Wild this year. The team has a whole lot to be excited about between having found a WC spot last season with tons of potential left to build around and still having a chance at the first-overall pick in the Jack Hughes lottery. In order to look ahead to the upcoming season, it’s important that we go backwards first. The Colorado Avalanche were the Cinderella Story behind the Cinderella Story last year. In a season which saw the team go from the worst record in hockey to beating out the Blues for theRead More →

There isn’t much that can rain on ‘The Parade’ they’re planning in Leafs Nation these days, but the William Nylander saga could be the next Gretzky high stick if not dealt with before long. So what exactly should Wunder-kid GM Kyle Dubas do? It’s been suggested he wants as much as 8 million per season, which makes about as much sense as saying his father Michael’s flow is as slick as William’s these days. Trying to fit him in at a more reasonable number would clearly be a better option for the franchise, but if I’m Nylander and someone’s willing to splurge, why wouldn’t IRead More →

Andy, Carl and Ryan are back to look at the latest from the WHL! Kelowna was named the host of the 2020 Memorial Cup. What impact will this have on the Rockets organization? This far into the season, there are a number of undefeated teams (Prince Albert Raiders, Brandon Wheat Kings, Victoria Royals) and a collection of winless teams (Calgary Hitmen, Regina Pats, Swift Current Broncos). Which of these teams are most likely destined for a change of fortune? With the Fortnite debate alive and well in the NHL, should WHL players be forced to give up video games on road trips? What kind ofRead More →
