Dougie Hamilton likes museums, so naturally, you can’t have a guy like that on your team. At least that’s what the Calgary Flames were thinking.
Ryan, Dave, and Geeta join you this week to discuss the fallout from the NHL Draft. The Vancouver Canucks drafted Quinn Hughes, but the real story might have been just how excited Canucks’ GM, Jim Benning, was to have the NCAA defenceman available and select him 7th overall.
They also discuss the big trade between the Calgary Flames and Carolina Hurricanes. Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm head to Cow Town in exchange for Dougie Hamilton and Micheal Ferland who will report to North Carolina as their questionable and confusing rebuild continues. Local Calgary media is creating their own narratives as to why Dougie was traded after a career year scoring more goals than any other defenceman in the NHL.
They talk about some big UFA signings across the NHL this week. From John Carlson in Washington to KHL superstar ILYA KOVALCHUK returning to the NHL and signing with the Los Angeles Kings. What will the grizzled vet fresh off a five-year stint in the KHL offer the Kings? A team who are starting to look like they don’t have a plan whatsoever.
They also answer some great Twitter questions, talk about a successful Shitty Beatles softball game and some awful service pre-podcast in Yaletown.
