The lazy dog days of the NHL regular season are here. Contenders are resting up, tank teams are putting their better players down with “injuries” to preserve them for summer hockey or as a precaution and the Canucks are milling about Yaletown with not a care in the world!
Dave, Geeta and Ryan join you this week to talk about running into Emerson Etem, Jake Virtanen and Jared McCann in a rather unlikely spot in Vancouver. They talk about the Canucks’ weak defence going into the end of the season, the absolute positives of Nikita Tryamkin and Dan Hamhuis taking everybody’s little brother, Ben Hutton, under his wing.
They look at Duncan Keith’s latest suspension for a dangerous slash on Charlie Coyle, whether he deserved more and what will happen to the Blackhawks in the post-season. Could their deadline tinkering cause for a stinkering?
Another podcast, another week of slagging Nazem Kadri, who was both fined for embellishment AND cross checked a Red Wing in the head on Hockey Night in Canada.
Finally, the gang looks at the Oilers moving to Rexall and Ryan’s trip to Prince Albert to cover the Raiders’ early playoff exit!
