The 16 playoff teams seem to be set (sorry Colorado and Philly). Collin and Andy predict the Stanley Cup Finals. Best and worst trade of the deadline? Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf got different receptions in Toronto this year. Collin is the only hockey fan that still cares about Jonathan Druin... Andy much, much more.
Collin and Andy discuss the Verzon Center after we attended the Maple Leafs vs the Captials. How was the food? How were the fans? How were the sight lines? How many times did Collin eat Burger King? Tune in.
Trade deadline talk. Stammer is staying put in Tampa. Andrew (he's just a Ladd) will likely be traded. Could the Penguins end up with Eric Staal as a rental? Will Colorado hold onto a spot? The Capitals are playing a video game on easy. Afternoon games stink and much, much more.
How long is Edmonton's rebuild going to take? Are Crosby and Ovechkin still the best players in the league or has the torch been passed? Holbty doesn't lose ever. Collin still brings up Jonathan Druin once a podcast. Andy and Collin talk about traveling to Columbus this Tuesday to see Islanders vs Jackets. Penguins fans continue to annoy Andy.
The all star game was fun... for some people. John Scott and Gary Bettman had a lot to say. Expansion into Quebec and Vegas. Who do we think will make the playoffs. Are the Red Wings able to hang on? Can Montreal get back into it? Will Arizona hold onto that last spot in Pacific or will Ducks overtake them? Did Dennis Wideman lose his god damn mind? All that and more.
Andy went to a game in San Jose over the weekend. Is Joe Thornton underrated? Stamkos looks like he's going elsewhere for sure. The Canadians have completed imploded. The playoff structure is a joke and should change soon. Collin likes to talk over Andy when he's speaking. Nobody plans on watching the All-Star game and much, much more.
The Pacific division is as big a joke as their all star captain. Collin suggests John Scott open a diner in western PA. We talk upcoming free agents. Whats going on in Tampa? How much is the most expensive team (NY Rangers) worth? How much is the least expensive team (Florida Panthers) worth? The Canadian dollar in free fall is going to cost Quebec a hockey team and much, much more.
Ovechkin scores his 500th. Panthers finally lost after 12 games. Collin thought it was 10. Trades are finally starting to happen. Bubble teams remain on the bubble. Habs continue to take a dive. The Pacific stinks and much, much more.
Rangers and Habs are sliding. Panthers have won 9 in a row. John Scott is an All Star. Tampa, Pittsburgh and Ottawa are staying in it. The Pacific stinks so bad the Ducks are sitting in a playoff spot. Philly cant score. Collin thinks its appropriate to go to Disney World as an adult.
