(If the homies can’t have none) In this case, it ain’t fun that Tryamkin don’t want none (of a Utica Comets Roster Spot)
Dave, P Mac and Ryan get together this week to talk about the podcast’s stance on fancy stats, their thoughts on the analytics and why the show is formatted the way it is.
They move on to Brian Elliot’s rough start with the Calgary Flames. Until Monday’s shootout win against Chicago, he was winless in 3 with a GAA over 4 and a SV% under .900 … basically Tom Barrasso numbers.
The gang talks about the Canucks’ injury troubles, their rough weekend in California and their new problems with Nikita Tryamkin. What will the Canucks brass do? Will they convince the Russian giant to play in Utica? Or will he return to the KHL? They also look at Ryan Miller and whether he’s on the move while goalie injuries plague the NHL.
They also compare the starts to the season for PK Subban and Shea Weber and more particularly, their plus/minus ratings.
The gang also talk about the 2016 Heritage Classic in Winnipeg and take a look at the lead blowing Toronto Maple Leafs!
Ryan provides a smug update on Jared McCann’s season totals in Florida and is concerned he’s not funny on the podcast. Is he?
