Enlightening And all the other hockey news has happened over the past week, as we always do out.
How you doing? Yeah.
What everyone? Welcome to episode 23.
Sorry, The power skate ship podcast.
Um, before we start, we want to say rest in peace to former, uh, NHL player Bob Nevin, who pasteurized to get age like 68.
I believe you too.
A to play for the New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs and and and Minnesota North stars.
And the next one We want to rest in peace, which is even way worse than Colby Caves.
Andre Butch tells Adam Comrie, the others, Dylan Ashe died from a car accident.
Junior hockey defenseman from the left bridge Hurricanes tufted to hear Someone died at a young age and and I know prayers called to those guys.
You know, It just is always such, you know, hear news like that.
Especially since you know, 2020 has been Everyone's here.
And, you know, unfortunately, certain events like this just, you know, it's just we'll move on to 2021 right? Yeah, that one. Yeah.
Before we before we start the whole thing, I asked you guys to please hit the like button.
DeMann greatly appreciates lots to a second.
That's gonna make us do more podcasters.
And another announcement on October 6 2020 will be Episode 25 on Tuesday for the 2020 National Hockey League draft.
Alexa Slopper near to the Rangers.
Well, we we will do our foot.
Yeah, we We will do our first round mock drafts for next week.
So? So everything will be in information for you guys.
So anyway, let's get this party started.
So 2019 Angel free agents w or L, We're gonna do three players.
So why not just start? So New York Islanders honors Lee? He resigned with the Islanders seven years, $7 million per year.
Is this a W or L? You know the way how Anders Lee played this year? It's a W for now, but the seven years I think it's gonna come into effect around here four or five this deal.
So I think in about a half decade, it probably will be kind of a ad contract, especially keeps on producing the way he is.
But I feel like it could be a neck contract in a few years.
But right now, if the Islanders a win now mode and you know, in fact, they were not very deep playoff run, I'm gonna say for right now a w in a few years transfer over doing L unfortunately for them.
What do you think? Yeah, I'm gonna.
But I'm gonna say this a w because, um, but honestly carried the team once again from a playoffs t to the qualifying them.
They passed Florida in the first round day past Washington.
Boo hoo! They beat yeah, in the second round, and they went to the conference found, but they got a living to Tampa Bay.
Doesn't matter about the contract.
They went crazy in the past This year during during the pandemic.
Why not save w? Alright.
Okay, Uh, this is gonna hurt savers fans.
Jeff Skinner, Um, wherever he is, Uh, seven years, I believe.
$9 million per year.
L l l l just man.
Decent player, But goodness city of a down year this year, and in my opinion, especially statistically, I think this year was the beginning of the end for Jessica.
And I hate to say it.
I mean, hey, listen, that I put them on a stall, you know, they might put them on the same line with Eric Staal.
You know, they might have the Hurricanes magic like they did, like five years ago.
Of course, Eric saw coming over Labour's last week, but I don't know, in my opinion, I think Jeff Scanners put he's a 2nd 3rd line or at best now.
And he's just not the guy Buffalo was really expecting.
And especially if it's a seven year deal, which I believe it is.
In fact, they got six more years to go on that.
That is just wrong.
I gonna say two things.
There's not gonna be a w.
It's gonna be an L No one with a brain.
Mr Jason Botterill.
He's not going to score 40 goals again.
He is to impending me of inconsistent like this dude, Jeff Skinner.
That's why I'm saying this dude is like this.
Good season, Bad season.
Good season, bad season.
It's a rollercoaster look like you're only gonna top 20 goals.
Probably from now on.
You just like that best. Gonna get 20.
Yeah, Like, for example, if you're having a girlfriend, you start nice and then you fly your face.
You were starting nice again, but you apologized.
But But they said don't forget it.
That's Jeff Skinner and Jason borrow.
All right, Anyway, love, love back that ****ogy.
Yeah. All right.
Uh, but let's make it up to Mr Mats.
Zuccarello $6 million per year.
55 years, W or L.
Now this is a w.
I like this move.
He's been decent this year.
I liked him a lot coming over from, you know, back in those days with the Rangers and overall, he still has that speed and honestly, her team, like Minnesota, they had to sign them because they're right now, still just on the bubble off being a playoff team.
And you need a guy like Zuccarello to really put you over the edge.
And you don't really make that a couple years.
Which is why I'm expecting Minnesota to do so overall.
Definitely a W Yeah, I'm gonna say w for sure.
Um, like, Mr has not have the best four piece that they used to have under Zach Parisi and Michael Koivu's tenure in Minnesota.
Yes, like Parise is gin and the decline.
Now I think they need someone who is like in their prime.
That that can produce points and then replace Zach. Parise is spot.
I'm gonna say just to w since that pretty pretty, Much like Parisi contract ends like in about like five years, I guess.
Then then zoo gorillas contract ends in five years.
So there he's basically like replacing Parisse is role that he waas when he was in New Jersey.
Signac Long term contract.
Like the first three years of Minister, I think I think like one zoo, Carell's gain better from speed, just doing normal something.
I would say this a w Yeah, definitely.
Alright, it's time to start our topics.
Let's recap the NHL Awards. Okay.
Should we start the Norris Trophy? Who? Mr what? We want to get worse.
It's John Carlson.
This dude had 69 games. Nice.
Johnny for Norris.
And is Roman Yosi just stealing stuff? Should we should the Nashville Police Department arrest him for for stealing the North Trophy to John Carlson? Okay, I don't know what to tell you.
I thought John Carlson was gonna win, too.
I mean, 69 games, 65 points for Roman Yoshimi for nice.
This is pretty good.
And Raleigh, you didn't have a much better playoffs.
And John Carlson, in my opinion.
But you know, when you're thinking about these wars, you're not really putting the playoffs, you know, really? In the conversation.
So I don't know, man, and I appreciate the other runner up was Victor Hedman.
Yeah, I think heaven.
My fingers were you? A lot of people on social media were saying Yes, it was the right pick.
It's in my opinion.
It was either counselor having I still put Yosi in, like three or four on that list because overall, statistically you have a good year. Don't get me wrong.
But I feel like especially we played the whole 82 games that price would have been having in there Carl sitting, you know, obviously, like I said, I know players Susan, you know, really count towards these awards bosses Victor have been playing.
They're in the playoffs e giving it to him. Honestly.
Definitely overwhelming Joosten and overall drawn Carlson.
I think even statistically at the best regular season have all those three guys I'd go.
You know most aren't arguing this, but you know, it's interesting.
I didn't say definitely towards Carlson, though.
Yeah, I was standing right there crying.
I was sitting right here and I cried right in the corner, like like the birds scanning, living into Tampa.
Anyway, let's e was a crying during that.
I was just extremely furious.
Yeah, yeah, Let's make it up The best that trophy goes through corner.
Okay, for those who followed all sports talk show does grips podcast with salmon.
Isaac, I was on the show.
I just Carter heart.
What? To? To win the Vezina.
Sorry, I'm getting off topic.
The reason why they just call her because the Flyers went on an eight game, I think eight or a nine game win streak, if I'm not mistaken, is one of them.
And he carried the whole team in second place by one point and first place on car on current. Hello, Bucks. Perspective.
The whole defense are most likely.
HL guys khl worthy guys.
And he just took over helping his Deke or top like this whole entire six defenseman.
There are H ell guys started most like your rookies, because doesn't Buffalo gone? Tyler Myers gone? Um, Ben, Sure, I believe. Gone.
And who's Who's that dude, Um, I don't know, Um, just really are really lacking in the bottom four in the bottom six and defenseman the 100% right on that.
Okay? And and for those who who check out off the wall hockey, which is John's YouTube channel, he went for a corner held up because it doesn't matter about stats.
It doesn't matter about wins, losses.
How how good your your team is like Boston to garage took over.
It's about how worked hard.
You're partnering with your defense.
Buck helped support and protect their defense because they're most All of them are h ell guys.
All right? Absolutely.
I felt like hell Bunch of deserved to win Those knows.
Well, of course.
Last year went to Vasilevskiy was also in the running back.
Figured he was gonna win back to back And Carhartt? Definitely a good option.
I mean, he would probably I runner up, be honest with you, but yeah, you gotta give the hell a buck.
I mean, overall, six shut outs in the 9.
22 save percentage.
I think that right there, pretty much shielded.
Um, you know, 31 wins made the All Star Game.
This year's overall.
The the guy has been incredible.
Like you stay with a pretty lackluster either experience, either inexperience or just really like pretty old KHL players like on defense, did a good job.
And, you know, even played pretty well in the playoffs.
Honestly, I thought the jets maybe even saw that syriza striking online.
I didn't get hurt.
That's different topic for a different day, but yeah, overall I do think the six shut down.
Such has got to be up there for top three in the league.
I would imagine.
And overall, he has just been a truly common goal time for the last few years now.
And I'm so glad this year he finally got the recognition he deserved by winning the best.
No complaints from me here.
Yeah, French is silky all right.
I heard it anyway.
Selke Trophy GS in the chat for Sean Petrolia, his third nomination.
Three straight years and he got the Selkie.
He isn't solid two way forward.
Like when when he was a rookie.
Let's say first four or five years, I should say he started to become a like a French, a silky level.
They shut down to afford level.
Now he gets the recognition of getting the French Selke Trophy well deserved.
To the Villagers boys, Absolutely.
I mean, I I can honestly secretary, really becoming like freaking out just like the next Bergeron.
Honestly, because the way how you know he's just so skilled offensively, you know, he could just work really make plays happen.
The defensive end of the Isis.
Well, it's just really impressive.
I really like Sean Couturier.
Congrats on him. Definitely.
Well deserved there as well.
Um, who are we missing? Um, Lady Byng.
Yes, I I just McKinnon to win the Lady Byng because because this dude had 40 more points than anyone on the roster.
Second place was Kelm a car.
Do you want to know about the injuries? Yeah.
Rougher Gabriel Landeskog gone.
Mikko Rantanen gone.
Taison Joe's gone.
I don't know if he was injured.
JT Comfort gone.
All this team were gone.
Colorado Eagles Come on up to the roster.
You're playing with McKinnon.
The cannon did it all over himself.
Lay bang g s And the chat boys.
I mean, I think it my runner up, what would probably be until you ****eryn, But I I agree.
I definitely give it to McKinnon here just because, you know, he was doing like he was still producing the numbers he would have without the players is usually used to playing with, like, Panera news, you know, still playing a line with guys like crying her.
And you know, players like that.
So that's where it definitely gives a slight edge to McCain as well.
Ladies and gentlemen, your M V P.
Please welcome Mr Leon.
Dry style for I was shocked at dry style one to M v.
I thought he was gonna win the Ted Lindsay award for most outstanding player in the NHL.
And the one that, too.
Yeah, I just Nathan MacKinnon.
Like I said before, this dude had 40 more points than anyone on the team.
Car ranked second, thio injuries like McCain and, uh, Landeskog gone ranting and gone.
McAra gone, Ryan Graves gone.
J T Compher gone Colorado Eagles players coming up.
And and he just carried his back.
Yeah, well, again.
I mean, it's just the fact that, you know, I think that I know the reason why Dry sound Pretty much one.
He led the league in assists with 60 70 got 100 and 10 points in a shortened 71 game season.
I mean, that would be absolutely highway rollin like that.
Be worse than Yosi winning the north over. Carlson.
In my opinion, if price out there when the team, in the fact that the total 110 points in 71 games.
You have to think the Oilers had to get shut out in a couple of games.
The guy was unstoppable.
I know he's playing with David, but still, Guy's unstoppable.
And in my opinion, he deserved the M v p.
I was Well, I was a little bit surprised because it's has to go to between Bruce Cast E Lanvin, you or John Tra.
Everybody wanted Tortorella.
This dude came to this season with no Panarin? Nope.
Matthew Shane, No. No one.
Uh Mackinson and Gustav Nyquist.
Really the only two players and Zach Lewinsky the only three decent players on the, uh Jones.
I don't know who takes got young team? Never mind.
Forget what? And and Zach Gransky scored 20 goals this year.
And the injuries Atkinson missed significant time.
All of our bureau extremist Significant time.
You This corpus solemn is significant time and murders.
Liquids with flying and Metis give lack.
Kins just did the same thing as Korpisalo.
Where's Liukin's did this season? I one thing Malice, merciless continues incredible kids got bright future for sure.
And the good thing this dude Elvis birds, lichens went to the first all rookie team.
Want some? Okay.
And the caller Memorial trophy, We're gonna save the best for last, which obviously that's a no brainer.
KLM a car from the Colorado ranch.
Hey, Mom, can I buy a Kalma cars? Renzi? Yes.
Okay. Thank you.
Kalma car Wanda Collar, Memorial trophy.
My car over. Hughes.
I was trying to find a white board that would look about my car over Hughes from the TSN bar down.
I mean, it's true.
You have a better year statistically and overall, like he deserved it more.
So he's definitely definitely a your on there.
Yeah, kill the car is amazing.
I think he just brings so much excitement.
Especially seeing a defenseman, you know, work in the offensive zone.
As good as he does, he's gonna be a bright future.
So that was Quinn Hughes.
I would be discouraged.
I was quitting here because I think ultimately, you know, never made people say it's not kind of believe it saying O Quinn use you might have a better career like five years down the road.
It's just my car's getting, like, the better rookie year, which is certainly an interesting topic.
He knows that Vancouver in Colorado, they're gonna be a playoff contention for at least another three or four years.
So anything could happen there.
Uh, next has, um, that you didn't find the list.
The always senators have unveiled their new logo logos.
Um, they're going to unveil their uniforms on draft day.
So? So the logo What? What it looks like is of the Daniel Alfredsson Danny Heatley Jason Spezza era.
I think they're gonna go crazy with that jersey for sure.
E think the jersey I look pretty good.
It's like, Oh, they build a New Jersey moment.
This is the jersey they use in the nineties.
And then, like Daniel, 7% like Ray Emery.
I right? I mean, these are like No, true.
They just switched over there long ago.
Pretty much at like when around like tails and nine, I want to say is when they switched over to, like, the like, night looking character and, you know, you know, it looks decent.
I I like the current centers long ago.
But I really would prefer the older one.
And I think it's awesome that they're going back to their Ogi logo on there, right? You know, trying to bring the fans back a little bit.
I mean, not to throw Eugene Melnyk.
Anybody is the worst owner in hockey.
But you gotta make the fans go to the game somehow, I guess.
E think the Agulhas are the worst than Melnick.
The thing is, cool is care, but the coolest care that they are doing anything about the servers of at least they care about the fans.
Yeah, Melnick, that's the throw football in the mix.
But he's literally Dan Snyder, so yeah, yeah, yeah.
Next topic we can pull up the Vegas Golden Knights are planning to have alternate jerseys.
I am so interested to see this E think everyone is so desperate to see the Vegas golden.
I haven't have a alternate jersey and they said that they're thinking to have a gold.
So Oh, I tell you one thing you could go crazy here for the nights for a foreign ultimate jersey.
I think you could You could really go off the wall here and, you know, really come up with something creative like, especially if you were to have, like, a gold looking jersey.
Like, how sick with that look, the knights could really, you know, do something they could even have, Like, a reddish jersey.
I know coming crazy.
But, you know, the little red on the street, you could even have, like, an all out red jersey, you know, patching like a little of the golden.
You could make something funky like that as well.
This could go a whole lot of different directions for this all to Jersey.
They have a very wide range of how they could work out even multiple instruments, in my opinion, So I don't know, but glad the nights are finally again alternate jersey and my opinion.
I feel like every team should at least have one is nice to see the nice male one next year.
Yeah, And, uh, so something's wrong.
Camera acting here one saying, but anyway, I'll ignore that.
So the Calgary Flames have interest to sign Jacob Markstrom if Kim Talbot does not re sign with Calgary.
Is that what Kim tablet is? Yeah.
Yeah, So do you.
Do you think this may happen? I mean, maybe.
I mean, in my opinion, I do think Jacob Markstrom is a little bit better than Cam Talbot, especially after the way we performed last year.
You know, making the All Star game and stuff.
But overall, he did have that injury before the playoffs, and I never really recovered from itself.
It's gonna be interesting.
I would say Flames.
Yeah, probably one or two year deal.
It just seems like Calgary can't stick with the goaltender.
Unfortunately, I mean, sure, sure, they have David rate to it.
I think it's gonna be pretty good, but I think he's still a couple of years away from really taking that starting role.
So yeah, I say go for it.
If you're Calgary, only give them a one or two year deal.
But I'd say go for it and also, yeah, very smart Vancouver, I think to get rid of March from I mean, I would try to Ramos and just losing him a free agency.
But you know, that's a DeMarco.
The way we're playing the playoffs was just amazing and you know, he definitely I think it's Thatcher Demko time in Vancouver, for sure.
So I definitely think they should move on from Jacob Markstrom.
And so his progress stinks seeing him go to a division rival.
Hopefully, you know, that doesn't bite you in a couple of years.
Especially if they mean the playoffs.
But right now, smart move by both teams.
Yeah, of course.
Just signing which we We can go through two.
So the penguins resigned, Jarred, but can to a two year deal with $5.
8 million per year.
And then macho, it is three son Joel to, uh, to a four year deal with, uh, 14 million.
Not not per your, um And also so I think that's like, I can't read math.
Uh, but but anyway, um, well, where your thoughts about two contracts for McKinnon, Edmonson, Jarome, A Ken Good contract.
Third liner could even produce well in the second line.
He's pretty good.
He's still relatively young.
Smart move there by Pittsburgh.
I know we talked about him going to Montreal last week when the trade actually happened a couple of 70 years ago.
I think if you're Montreal, you could use a guy like Joel Edmundson, especially since she only gave up 1/5 round pick for him.
Right now, I think it's worth it.
But the fact you give a not even a top four defenseman on some teams $14 million for the next four years is an overpayment other way around.
In my opinion, I think you get McCann the four year deal with 14 Mill and you give Joel.
I'm in from the two or three year deal worth about, you know, five mil average.
I think that would be a much bad contract for bolting in general, though Pittsburgh wouldn't really have the salary cap Tom can for that long.
And even then, that's something coming over payment.
But it's just Montreal over paying the heck out of Jill Lemons.
And again, that was time.
The one to your deal.
I want to get it.
And then, you know, I would have gotten another, you know, defenseman a couple years down the road for agency hope they develop another one, or, you know, because really, Joe, I mean, saying he's gonna be paired up with two Jeff Petry. Probably.
It's like, Okay, you'll have peace and states, but they're not really gonna go up.
They're not gonna really gonna pound.
You gonna be like a 20 point guy Pretty much drove the rest of his career at this point, in my opinion, if not even a little bit lower hope he proves me wrong.
But right now, not looking good.
Contract wise from Montreal.
And you think about the salary cap? Um, yeah.
Hey, guys, like cooking the Emmy in a few years, you'll be taking a look at those contracts.
Will be like, That's why we don't have the salary cap.
Yeah, I think of the contracts.
I would think the overpayment, I would say, like, probably like $88 million.
Annual out? No, uh, like, four years like, let's say, like, $2.
6 million per year.
And and McCann McCann? That's a good contract.
8 million more, Most likely like a 2nd 3rd line mill of your lying top guy contract.
I agree with McCann.
Yeah, Joel, I'm in.
Yeah, well, I mean yeah, overpayment.
So we we got some interesting news that just happened earlier today.
There are rumors Bill Ilia Kovalchuk signing back to New Jersey.
Oof! Is that an interesting one? Because remember, the capital's they've already listed a bunch of players that they were going to go after If Koval truck didn't recited.
Leave Valerie in the skin was one of them.
They had a couple others.
I'm pretty sure that they were interesting.
Mark and met the cough.
Yeah, Domestic off Carl Soderberg and yeah, I think overall.
Yeah, those are three pretty decent players, and, you know, they're not great, but I'd rather have them over a, you know, steadily.
Not even selling rapidly declining Ilya Kovalchuk.
I'd rather have one of those guys managing the third line extraction with ESPN.
Mark, I didn't realize, you know, now they've been watching pretty much all the stars games.
I realized how much speed that guy had used the speech.
Oh, Soderberg is a very good productive.
Their line there will get you.
You know, around 2025 points year piece stays healthy for a holy two games.
You know, it'll be a cold track.
I just You know, I know he spent time in the KHL.
I came back with the Kings.
That didn't really work.
Now he's with the Canadians.
You know, That didn't work. And I was with the Capitals.
Go back to the Devils.
I mean, would make sense because they'd be able to, you know, put him actually on an actual roster spot.
The problem is, I just think that pointed be eating up, cap.
And if there was a team I would seek over truck going, it would either be the Devils with the Red Wings.
I'm leaning more towards the Devils.
In that case, I could see it happening.
Them just giving them, like a one year goodbye year, I guess.
Just because you know, is really years sure came with the Thrashers.
By my opinion, I think a billion cold truck Maura's the devil than I do with Thrashers because he was on the double.
Manly started watching hockey, but I'd say that was price.
Give him a one year farewell, dear.
That would probably my opinion, Uh, you know, he's only going to get probably 15 20 points max next year, especially since you pretty much be playing second line minutes.
But what do you think of Alien coach up? I would say Santa because he was very good With the Fash er's, they relocate to Winnipeg.
How about sign with Winnipeg for saying like, Hey, Elliot, thanks for your service back in Atlanta.
Now let's now let's make a final two or three year memories back, and then let's make more.
Yeah, yeah, or I would say, like a cup contending because oval Chuck has not won a standing yet, I would say, like ST Louis or like Dallas or Tampa.
So I have a could be a sleeper team that might pick him up.
Yeah, yeah, and and speaking of free agents, Mikko Koivu will not return to the Minnesota Wild.
He played most of his career with the Minnesota while he was a career with the Minnesota.
While yeah, he he was drafted sixth overall in the 2001 NHL draft by the missile.
While yeah, 1028 games, 205 Goals, 500 forces for 709 points and a plus 70 rating.
That is good numbers for a dude who played like almost 20 years with the Miss of the Wild.
Yeah, no, it's like you really wonder.
What if Mikko Koivu wasn't on the wild for all these years.
Like what he was with the team, like the Blackhawks and the Bruins for the Capitals for that long.
You know he has.
You know, other guys outside Zach Parise A and, like Jason Pominville for two years like Mary and Garrett for a few years actually play with we could be talking about.
We could quite potentially being a Hall of Famer.
Potentially, if you play on the right team, he might make it in just because eventually we're gonna have to put the Minnesota Wild in the Hall of Fame.
And let's be real. So I could be praised.
They're gonna lean towards me record because they feel like they should.
But I don't know, man.
And honestly, I think Michael Corby's got retired.
Unless he pulls a Corey Perry, you know, wants to say a one year deal elsewhere, I think Mikko Koivu retiring.
I would say from to go to Pittsburgh because because you have, like Patrick Marleau with their former wild Oh yeah, the penguins love to get their former wild.
Yeah, yeah, because because they need veteran players to get a Stanley Cup.
Well, Michael Koivu.
Well, Mikko Koivu do like Ray Bork Cell.
And with Patrick Marleau, have Joe Thornton go to the Penguins.
So now you have Thornton, Marleau and Koivu or Perry.
If he's going to Pittsburgh, then guess where he's already won a cop.
So, yeah, then then guess what? 2021 Stanley Cup champions Pittsburgh Penguins.
Yeah, but then you have a really snail like fourth line.
Like you could do that.
You're trying to win all those guys a ring, but across you get hurt again.
Jerry is like a one year wonder.
You are in some deep trouble and you will have a very slow fourth line.
That would be rough, but yes, that would be pretty cool if that would happen.
Yeah, um, set up So Thomas Christ from the New York Islanders will test free agency so well, Thomas Greiss resigned with the New York Islanders.
Yes or no? No, he's not going to because Samir Varlamov clearly showing the playoffs.
So he is the guy going forward.
And if he wanted to test for agency, I think that's pretty much a death sentence that he's not coming back to your team unless a lot of people really low ball him offers.
But I think teams like New Jersey maybe like the Hurricanes, if they get rid of Reimer morass sick.
You know, I think you know, the Red Wings.
Maybe maybe the Kings.
They're planning on doing something with Jonathan quick in the next couple of years.
I mean, there's other places Thomas Christ could go.
He does not have to stay with the Islanders.
Sure, you thought that Great 12 punch of net, But Aussie again, This looks like a llama.
There's a guy going forward, and I feel like Yonkers could get a much younger and cheaper and maybe just as good, back up in free agency.
Or, you know, they could even draft a guy and develop improperly.
So when you know they're ready to get rid of our love off, that gold is ready.
They could do a lot of interesting things here.
The Thomas Christ.
I would have given the time of day anymore.
You want to test free agency? Good luck.
Get overpaid elsewhere.
If I'm the Anders, I'm sticking with my alarm off, and I'm still trying to build that forward corps.
Yeah, I would see you go to a team like Boston and took your ask for tires soon.
They have to be true if to Karash retires.
And when I'm going to Boston, you know, pretty much him.
And the lack will just be like rice and barley.
Pretty much you have to veteran goalies who were just really trying to, you know, win championships.
You know, in the last years, and they just have, you know, such incredible forward chords in 3.
30 defense's it could work.
If Rask shockingly, you know, retires before the air.
I finally picked up Thomas Christ.
I prefer Darcy Kiepper, but I because they went after pumps. Christ.
Yeah, and e, I think Rice might lead to Washington because obviously, hopefully, obviously hoping is gonna be testing free agency.
Not gonna be with the caps.
Uh, next topic we can go with Bob Buchner will be the newest head coach of the San Jose Sharks.
Um, that is a good move.
Um, because sans I did better with, um with Bob Buchner.
What appeared to bore was was Cushing since, like December and Buchner did Did better.
Like like Sands A.
They're not gonna pull off Like what Craig Berube he did last year.
Look, if there, like dead last in the standings and they're dead last, I think that's a good move for Bob Buchner or the G m of the shirts.
Stay keeping with Bob Buchner.
Yeah, I think this was smart move as well.
Now he has been, please, not a decent job, the Sharks.
And just overall, the sharks just kind of like a mask.
But I really do think they give this guy a couple of years, we'll give him a shot.
I do think he could certainly do well, may bring the Sharks back to the plants in a couple of years, and who knows? But, you know, I know he was pretty decent with the Panthers staff, and, you know, it's been a pretty decent, you know, assistant coaches.
Well, so sure, I I definitely have no complaints here with the trucks are hiring him as a full time coach.
I think this is a very smart move, but the future will tell on that.
Yeah, I think we could waken due to more Um I'll say three more.
So the Blackhawks bring back Cody Franson on a two way deal.
Nostalgia, baby, we got Cody friends and back Nostalgia is gonna be playing with the Icehogs, but who cares? You got nostalgia.
May police legend in Nashville Predators legend Cody Franz is back, Baby Black.
You play with the Blackhawks And what say in 2016 and his done nothing since.
But, hey, they brought him back to a deal.
You might play a couple of regular season games next year.
Notch like a minus vibrating.
What do you think of this? You thought it was in the KHL, didn't you? Yeah, I called King.
Well, he played in the cage of last year.
Oh, you did? Okay, so I thought that was gonna be in a casual Well, however, he's not gonna be in the Blackhawks.
He's He signed an H L contract with the Rockford Icehogs, right? Yeah, Well, that's what I mean.
It's a two way deal.
He's pretty much going to be in the h l.
But who cares? Nostalgia.
I love those old maple Leaf defenseman from back in the days of Children 13 King can Can we put a hashtag bring back down if enough in the chat? Yeah, baby.
Yeah, All right.
So the preview between the Dallas Stars and the Tampa Bay Lightning for me, I think that temper, I think that Tampa Bay, well, understanding Cup because they're they're doing normal stuff without Steven Stamkos.
Stamkos never played it.
Never played a playoff game because he was like, like, unfit to play.
He has been injured.
Yeah, for like the run.
The exhibition game round Robin ran one round around three in the Stanley Cup final F Tampa Bay wins it, I think Steven Stamkos, I'm gonna say this is a joke.
Might call it a career very out of it because you know you ain't retiring.
But, boy, I'll tell you one thing.
Hockey guard just giving **** coastal.
Slap in the face, being a play, a single game and the company and the Lightning on the cup.
You find a single game, I go.
It's like, all right, Sam chose.
You probably make the whole thing, but that's about it.
Lightning won the cup in 2020 years, thinking to do literally squat outside recovering, being on injury reserve.
Have fun with that? Pretty much because, but not just proves how good Tampa Bay is.
Just how death their entire lineup is.
Just, you know, even the defenseman like appreciate Lightning lead all NHL teams and defenseman going in the playoffs as they certainly should.
I mean, Victor Hedman, Ryan McDonough, Kevin Shattenkirk that I'll have in common all parties.
And it's just really nice to, you know, I only see you.
I need to take that extra step.
You know, the three wins away from the up that they're so close that they have a shot here.
E also predicted Tampa Bay winning in seven bass for tonight.
Yeah, I also see lightning when you tonight as, um I don't know.
It's just it's gonna be interesting, you know, to me when I take a look, The stars, of course, decent defense is pretty good.
You are living and dying by ants walking job.
And like, if he played like it didn't Game one making 35 stops and 36 saves shopping 23 in the third period alone.
But if you have you know, been Monday where he was allowing three goals in the first period and couldn't come back pretty much game over for the Stars.
It all depends on how it's gonna get open place and feel like you don't have to worry about how good bath, less people you know, the forward and defensive corn they step up towards Lake.
That's, I think, the main factor here.
And that's why I got Tampa Bay winning in seven.
Yeah, so we'll go with like like the honorable mentions who we should talk about.
We signed with Washington Jake Evans.
You signed with Montreal, though those were guys who poor, basically like like your like your depth for line players.
I'll say that I don't know J E Daniel's friends, but I can't do anything with Washington.
But I know Jake Evans is decent.
I think he could definitely have three or four year deal comes next contract definitely has been impressive.
So Okay, all right.
Anyway, um let's see, uh, last topic will go with, um who should win the Conn Smythe trophy.
Um, from for me, I would go with mirror Hey, skin for Constant or Anton Khudobin.
Because Because Kuku Delvin, I think you know what he said in the locker room.
We're not going home from the When they went to the Stanley Cup final, I think that could all been Yeah, um, want I find it interesting.
You have two dogs as the consummate, but you have the Lightning winning the Siri's.
I think that's very intriguing.
Yeah, And for Tampa Bay, I would say between Bright and Point or Victor Hedman? Absolutely.
We we got the same things here.
I mean, at first I was sticking when I was first, and then I'm like, Oh, she's been the consummate when I was thinking of lightning and like really Brendan Point.
But you know, now, thinking about Brendan Point, he's honestly, probably in the clutches player throughout this playoffs.
That's I maybe could open.
I gotta be honest with you.
In my opinion, there has been no forward more clutch than Brendan points out the playoffs.
The guy just delivers overtime goals.
The guy, you know, fantastic in the face off hot.
You're starting into a pretty good two way forward.
It's well, you know, he's been playing for pretty good.
Defense is well, so of course, yeah, I don't know man.
He just Maybe maybe I, uh It means Sochi Award winner in a few years.
Maybe if Bergeron Qatari in around.
So I guess it's under an hour was 45 minutes.
Well, I guess there is one thing we could still talk about, and then we could probably wrap it up with some trivia, if that's cool with you.
But your guess is just one more thing we got to talk about here.
Trade is not official.
The paperwork has not been sent to the Panthers yet, but boy paperwork or not, we had a doozy of a trade earlier today.
Jim Rutherford with another unjust, another horrendous trade.
Supposedly sending right winger Patrick.
Or it was through the Panthers.
One on one for defenseman Mike Mathis City.
You can get anything in return.
You can't get anything in return.
You know what? It's pregnant.
Get Patric Hornqvist to say some shower cap.
Then why go after? You know a defenseman on the Panthers, Okay.
Like Matheson, you could literally just traded your fourth round pick to get Mike Matheson.
Why would you get rid of Patrick Corn? Quist? I'm thinking maybe hard quist for Dad Enough.
I mean, you could do a straight up trade like that, maybe.
Or if you really want my again or you want a defenseman from the Panthers, maybe throw Aaron Ekblad in the deal.
Maybe you like core question like a 2nd and 3rd for bread like you would make a move here.
It happens or not.
It's just utterly stupid that is even out there.
Or I should say, if I was Jim Rutherford, who is very smart with things, Patrick Corn Quest to Florida for Mark Pesic, Mike Matheson and a second round pick that will be a good trade.
That's also a good trade.
He's just fleecing himself here.
Yeah, like like Like I said, Look from from like, I think like path like sports scouts of live streams ago from Washington and Philadelphia, Detroit from Record Goose and Matt Niskanen.
Well, that worked out for Philadelphia.
And so No, this is not about the Niskanen and the good straight.
This is Nordquist to Masterson.
No draft picks just swap for defensive.
Just one player at a time Deal hashtag fired Jim Rutherford.
It's like, How could you even how could you even, like, make this trade and, like, still have a job again? It's not official, but the fact that paperwork or not is, you know, turning.
Yet the fact that was even again the fact is even happened is just what the Well, you know what word I was going to say, What the heck is going on here? Because literally ridiculous, you cannot pray when your first line right when you're for a six pairing defenseman that's stupid like that is just utter ridiculousness Still, so do do we think that that Jim Rutherford is the next race and viral potentially chain Ryan Oreilly for Patrik Berglund, who just quit hockey and went to Europe or Sweden? Teach Thompson and Flatow Boca.
And you know this.
This reminds me last year when Rutherford, when he paid Brandon 10 ev that hefty contract.
Also, it was four years.
It's like good player looking.
I'm like massing brand Tana.
But Lord, simmer it down a bit.
Give them less money.
Don't treat your first line right winger. You're fine.
Just got Yeah, I agree.
Got building the defense, you know, building the defense at Chris the Tang in the deal.
Because at this point is the reason.
What's what's really holding Pittsburgh's defense back? This will Tang? Yeah.
What? Well, at least at least the captain and trade was simple.
True, at least. Yeah, I know.
At least six party captain deal, you know, worked for both teams.
You know, Pittsburgh, answer around, Babe, this is just policing by the pan.
Especially the Panthers, who are pretty much one solid player away from a playoff run past record, which would be that guy way already are assuming that they're going to resign.
My Kaufman to you 1st and 2nd line already to go.
Even the bottom six is still pretty good.
So And if this does go through and this could be looking dangerous next year, you know, all they need to do is just, you know, focus.
You know, maybe pick up Amy.
Hey, listen, if they pick up outspent torrential free agency and the Broschi played out, we did last year, we were talking about panthers.
Maybe not Presidents Trophy, but top three in the Eastern Conference or everything goes to plan and this trade goes through.
We could potentially see a panthers as the top three team these next year.
So here's the question.
So if this was official, which trade was worth the Filip Forsberg trade for Martin, the red or the or that trade thing is Martin here? Had it wasn't good, but at least when they traded, you know, at least when he got trade from Nashville, he at least got He at least had some value to him with Mike Matheson.
I mean something tomorrow near you could have traded.
Why, Like a 3rd 4th round pick from our near at you could have trade like a fit.
Their sixth straight up for Mike Matheson.
Madison appreciate was a healthy scratch in the playoffs.
If I'm not mistaken.
Yeah, sure, you got suspended.
And then the Panthers didn't even playing for the rest of the qualifying round.
I'm pretty sure that's what happened.
It's like I'm worth considering how good film force we already is.
We kind of Patrick or Enquist.
He's not gonna get much better, start aggressively getting a little bit worse.
So, overall, I would say the Forsberg in Iraq trade would overall be worse because Forsberg actually has became we know hard question.
Gonna kind of simmer down a bit statistically.
But so overall moves were stupid.
Yeah, My mic mask and played two games in the qualifying rounds.
I know you've got ejected or find one of the two.
I think, yeah, I don't know.
Uh, well, his stat wise.
In the regular season this year, he has 59 games, eight goals, 12 assists, 20 points and a minus one Ray career.
One game away from 300 games but 299 games.
58 assists for 91 points in the minus 30 rating.
So if this trip was to go through the Penguins earliest trade away Patrick Corn Quist for the younger and cheaper version of Jolan Benson is what you're telling me pretty much.
I mean, even told him and said, Well, being traded in this good award.
Hopefully this happens.
All right, I Hopefully this actually doesn't happen.
Uh, something that actually did.
If this trip was official, Florida automatically once the trade gs in the chapter Florida Oh, absolutely.
Florida was the trade.
Know Dona No Patrick or quest could literally get hurt during training camp.
And they still with trade.
All right, let's do some trivia.
Alright, Put trivia.
So this question does not count, but I'm just going to say this Which NFL player wants to play hockey? This happened last year.
I do not like him by the man who I want to burn his jersey who is now making ah, $103 million despite being arguably not even the best corner on his team.
