He talked about life on the move and whether or not it gets easier to stomach being traded. He also touched on his two Stanley Cup runs with the Penguins and his favourite memories from those.

Podcast cover

Today on The DFO Rundown, Jason and Frank were joined by former NHL tough guy Shawn Thornton. On the ice, he was known for dropping the mitts but in his post-career life, he’s actually turned to the business side of the sport as he’s now the Chief Revenue Officer of the Florida Panthers. He spoke about that role, some of his more memorable moments on the ice during his career, and also the book he wrote about his life. His path from being a steel worker to a two-time Stanley Cup Champion is quite remarkable.

Before the interview with Thornton, the duo broke down some of the recent news that we’ve gotten from the last seven days around the NHL. From the Golden Knights adding Phil The Thrill and shoring up their goaltending to the big extension that the Buffalo Sabres gave to Tage Thompson, there was plenty to get to on the pod. Tyler Yaremchuk also popped in with a new edition on Buy or Sell.

Jason and Frank were reunited today on the pod as Frank returned from his summer holiday in Italy. He started the show by talking about his time there, and the food he ate. He also gave some travel tips for those thinking of going. It was a relaxed episode of the pod as they really didn't get into much hockey talk for the first five minutes but hey, it's August.

When they did get to the hockey talk, they started with what's going on in Calgary as GM Brad Treliving made another huge splash last week landing start free agent Nazem Kadri. Are the Flames now back to being the team to beat in the Pacific? Or is it the Oilers' division to lose? Frank and Jason debated that. From there, they hit on the Canes getting a bargain deal done with Paul Stastny, the situation in Vegas, and the Islanders not doing anything this summer after missing the playoffs in 2021-22.

They also brought in Tyler Yaremchuk for Fill in The Blank delivered by DoorDash. He asked them about some remaining free agents, which rookies they're excited to watch next season and their all-time favourite arena names.

Before we got to that interview, Jason Gregor talked about the latest surrounding Nazem Kadri and whether or not he'll eventually sign with the New York Islanders. He also hit on the number of Achilles injuries that we're seeing this summer around the NHL this summer as players get ready for the start of the season.

Panthers GM Bill Zito breaks down his blockbuster summer

Podcast cover
Read more

We continued our August interview series by catching up with Panthers GM Bill Zito. Some would say that he's been the busiest man in hockey this summer as he hired Paul Maurice, filled out the edges of his roster in free agency, oh, and he also happened to orchestrate one of the biggest trades of the salary cap era. He broke down how the mega-deal between the Panthers and Flames went down and why he's excited to welcome Matt Tkachuk to his organization. He also spoke a little bit about why it made sense to trade away Jonathan Huberdeau, who holds many Panthers franchise records, and Mackenzie Weegar, who many view as a top pairing defenseman.

He also talked about his journey to being a General Manager, his risk tolerance, and how he goes about building what he hopes to be a Stanley Cup champion.

Before the interview with Bill, Frank and Jason talked about Huberdeau's new contract with the Calgary Flames and also the status of some of the remaining UFA's like Nazem Kadri, Phil Kessel, and PK Subban.

Day one of free agency in the NHL started with a bang as we got a flurry of moves right when the official window opened up at noon eastern time. There were plenty of moves that we saw coming over the last few days but we also got a few absolute stunners. Nothing was a bigger surprise than Johnny Gaudreau choosing to sign with the Columbus Blue Jackets and that's where Jason and Frank started today on the show.

From there, they hit on pretty much every major move that we saw today from the way the goaltending market played out to even some of the big trades that went down in between all the big signings. Some teams came out looking really good while others, like the Vegas Golden Knights, really couldn't find a way to improve their rosters.

They also talked about the big-name UFAs that didn't find new homes today like Nazem Kadri, Ondrej Palat, and John Klingberg. Frank gave us the latest on what the market looks like for those players. To wrap up the show they brought in Tyler for a new edition of Buy or Sell delivered by Door Dash, which sparked a great conversation about the game croquet!

Free Agent week is here in the NHL and things are happening. The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Matt Murray just minutes before we started recording today's podcast and that's exactly where Jason and Frank started the show. This is a big gamble for the Maple Leafs, who are desperate to build a roster that can go on a playoff run. That wasn't the only big piece of news that we got this evening as the Colorado Avalanche signed Valeri Nichuskin to a monster eight-year deal that carries a cap hit of $6.125 million. It's a wild contract and Frank and Jason talked about whether or not that will age well for the Avs.

The Avalanche are still looking like a juggernaut and Frank has some serious questions about whether or not the Lightning are going to be able to find a way to get back in this series.

We also had a conversation with Thomas Sychertz, a former NCAA goaltender who is now leading a brand called 'Lipsweater' which is looking to merge the NFT world and the hockey world.

The Stanley Cup Final got off to a flying start as the Avalanche walked away from game one with an overtime victory. Speaking of flying... Jason had a great story about his trip to Montreal that involves a cab driver getting pulled over and being given an insane speeding ticket. Since Jason is in Montreal, there was a natural tie-in to the trade that went down yesterday between the Canadiens and the Vegas Golden Knights. On the surface, that trade might be a little confusing but Frank and Jason broke down why that deal actually makes a lot of sense for both sides.

They also spent some time talking about the goaltending market and which teams are going to be looking to get involved this summer. From free agents to trade targets, there are plenty of intriguing names that could be available this summer. Tyler Yaremchuk also stopped by for another edition of Buy or Sell delivered by DoorDash.

Yes, the playoffs are still going on but Frank and Jason decided to take today's episode to get ready for what could be a wild offseason around the NHL. There are some big names on Franks's trade targets board and that's where they started on the show. Alex Debrincat sits at the top of the list and represents a chance for the Chicago Blackhawks to really kickstart their rebuild. Will they cash in on his value this summer? Or will they wait until the deadline to do it? Frank says it's a matter of when not if the Hawks move on from him,

They also hit on the big decision the Oilers have to make with Evander Kane. Will anyone offer Kane a long-term deal? Both of the guys seemed to think that's unlikely. They also hit on the availability of both John Gibson and Connor Hellebucyck at different points throughout the show.

There are plenty of other teams who will be very interesting to watch. The Minnesota Wild will likely be moving Kevin Fiala, the Vancouver Canucks will need to decide what to do with JT Miller, the Flame's plans hinge on Johnny Gaudreau's decision, and

They also hit on some coaching candidates before getting to Tyler Yaremchuk for Buy or Sell delivered by DoorDash.
