206 - Traded For A Pile Of Old Rags

The William Nylander saga is over in Toronto and to celebrate, Kyle Dubas made a "blockbuster" trade with Jim Benning and the Vancouver Canucks. Ryan, Geeta and Paul gather in the palatial estate to discuss the six year, $6.9 million AAV contract handed out to William Nylander at the 11th hour. What will this mean for the Maple Leafs' big cap crunch next season? Could we see Nylander or another big part of the Leafs' core be moved next year? Or can Kyle Dubas make it all fit under the salary cap? They also discuss the Vancouver Canucks trade for Toronto's odd man out, Josh Leivo. What can he bring to the struggling Canucks? Early projections have him playing with Bo Horvat, who has seen a revolving door of linemates this year, all while leading the team in scoring. They talk about how the Arizona Coyotes and Chicago Blackhawks' have fared since making their big trade last week. Both teams are headed in opposite directions to say the least. Ilya Kovalchuk is set to miss a month of hockey following a procedure on his ankle. Is this a legitimate absence from the LA Kings, or is he just waiting out Willie D's tenure as head coach. They also discuss the two intriguing waiver pick ups the Kings' made this week, Brendan Leipsic and Nikita Sherbak. Support the show on Patreon!

221 - Same Bruins, Same Kadri

The Stanley Cup Playoffs are here and things don't make a lick of sense. The best team of the last twenty years is on the verge of elimination against a team who squeaked into the playoffs on the second to last day.

Ryan, Geeta and P Mac gather at the palatial estate to discuss the Canucks absolute tailspin. While it's good for the draft lottery, it definitely hard to watch as a fan. They discuss if Quinn will actually see the ice or if his ankle injury is worse than expected. They discuss the Pittsburgh Penguins' rebound, and the irony of them acquiring Jared McCann and Erik Gudbranson in the same season. The two former Canucks have seemed to found homes in Pittsburgh, McCann playing top line minutes with Sid the Kid and Erik playing twenty minutes a game on a banged up Penguins blue line. Can they sustain it though? They look at the incredible season of the Tampa Bay Lightning, who are having a record setting season. History might not be on their side though. They also discuss the incredibly deep and dangerous Golden Knights who steam rolled through Vancouver over the weekend. Can Vegas make another run for the cup?

A deadline that saw the Columbus Blue Jackets absolutely load up for a playoff run with Matt Duchene, Adam McQuaid, Ryan Dzingel and Keith Kinkaid.
