The last podcast with terrible audio. We talk round 2. Sid hurt. McDavid is scoring highlight goals but are they enough? Rangers vs Senators winner couldn't win The Calder Cup. Predators look good does that make Habs fans crazy?
Andy gets Collin rattled about lint rollers. The All Star game rosters are up. Did anyone get snubbed? Should Seth Jones be in? There's like 8 Blackhawks playing. The AHL played a game in a monsoon, Laine got destroyed, and somehow we get back to our love of diners.
Who will make the playoffs? Who has no shot? Who is on the line? First episode back is filled with predictions. Collin thinks the Blackhawks are going to finish higher than the Stars. Andy thinks Collin sleeps next to a carbon monoxide leak. TUNE IN. SEASON starts TONIGHT.
World Cup, NHL 17 player ratings, Tort's and the Anthem. What do you want from us? It's basically still summer.
The best team is out of the playoffs as the Penguins dropped the Capitals. The Sharks and Predators have yet to play game 7 at the time of this recording. The Blues blast the Stars in game 7. Who is the best team remaining? The Blues or The Penguins? Tampa took out the Islanders can their speed compete with the Penguins? Sorry we recorded this before the western conference finals but Andy is pretending he has a career.
Suspend or not to suspend? The league came down on a few players and let others go. Is Shaw a clown or what? Philly, LA, Chi, Det, Minn are all on life support. Penguins vs Rangers is still anybody's series. San Jose and St. Louis look incredible. Capitals are outscoring the Flyers at a rate that will be hard to turn around. Tampa is just fine with injuries. And much, much more.
The guys give their picks for yearly awards. Should the NHL have an offensive defenseman award? Who makes the playoffs Philly or Detroit? Colorado is almost officially done. Collin brags about working with a celebrity. The stars of the week via NHL.COM. Insightful and but not intelligent hockey conversation.
Philly and Colorado will just not go away. What players are you must excited to see play next season. Should McDavid still win the Calder even though he missed so many games? Is Kane still the MVP frontrunner? Can Dallas sustain without one of the two superstars? Are the Capitals set up for disaster or a Stanley Cup?
Colorado and Philly are still hanging on but barely. Collin made sure Andy was as distracted as possible. Are the Penguins better without one of their two big stars? Injuries to key players down the stretch. Can the Red Wings score enough goals? Some cities should be excited about next year. Others probably want to fast forward or rewind 10 years. GM meetings will cover a lot of stuff that they already cover every year. That and much, much more.
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.
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.
Canadians only lost one game but slipped to sixth place in the standings. All Star Game is continuing to be a joke. Another Kane in trouble, in Buffalo. Collin is soft. Winter Classics are getting old. More hockey stuff.
The Ducks are terrible. The Rangers are an okay team with a great goalie. The Capitals are rolling, Jagr and Panthers in playoffs spot. Andy is hungry. Collin wore a t shirt that was way too tight. Evander Kane, Steven Stamkos contract. Penguins fans are terrible people. Florida fans don't exist... And much more.
Rangers have been bad. Capitals have been great. Penguins are a hot mess. Fighting in hockey is going away. Semin stinks. AND MUCH MORE
Colin and Andy talk about the games of the week. Patrick Kanes scoring streak, John Scotts all star voting, early Hart Trophy picks and more.
