Joel Quenneville is shown the door by Stan Bowman after three Stanley Cups in Chicago. Was it the right move to fire Coach Q? Or does this grizzled Blackhawks’ core still have something left in the tank?
Ryan, Geeta and Paul join you this week to discuss the curious firing in Chicago. Each member weighs in on what they would have done differently in Chi-town with the second most winningest in NHL history.
Dave Skypes in from Ottawa to discuss attending his first Montreal Canadiens home game as well as the Uber controversy in Ottawa. One tire fire after another in the nation’s capital as this rough stretch seems to never end for the Senators.
They also discuss the rising popularity of #ShotGunJake, the outrageous Elias Pettersson comparisons and if we can make Petey comparisons with athletes in different sports.
Finally, the gang looks at the Hockey Hall of Fame class of 2018, including curious addition Gary Bettman. We share our thoughts on Uncle Gary getting the nod as well as the rest of the class of 2018.
