Episode #214 – DiPietro & The Islanders (Mikey Not Rick)

We’re living in a world where the hottest team in the NHL is the St. Louis Blues and the New York Islanders are leading the Metro division after John Tavares decided to skip town.

One week removed the snowiest podcast recording on record, Ryan Geeta and Paul gather at the palatial estate on a sunny Sunday afternoon to discuss an interesting week in the NHL.

The Edmonton Oilers shed some cap space and a goaltender as Cam Talbot heads to Philadelphia to backup and mentor his friend IRL, Carter Hart.

Dave joins the show to discuss the red hot New York Islanders. They’re leading their division and winning by committee without John Tavares. Former Islander and Tavares teammate Rob Schremp chimed in on Twitter to give a less than stellar opinion on Tavares as a teammate. We discuss these comments as well as the positive impact that adding Barry Trotz and Lou Lamoriello can have on a team and organization.

They also discuss the unfortunate NHL debut for Michael DiPietro for the Vancouver Canucks in their 7-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks last Monday. They break down how it could have been prevented and just why the 19 year old wound up with the start.

Finally, they discuss the Canucks’ trading Sam Ganger for Ryan Spooner, discuss possible trade locations for Matt Duchene and Mark Stone and answer a couple questions from Twitter.
