There is a strong group of players set to move teams and Brad and Blake discuss what teams would be the best fit for these players. Then its time to talk about a variety of NHL topics. The most prevalent is an epic rant that Brad Burud had about Nathan MacKinnon freaking out on his coach while on the bench. Brad did not like MacKinnon’s behavior and believe me he did not hold back.

Solutions for this problem are discussed and some ideas on what they would do with the entire All-Star process.

  5. The Instigator |Episode 21 Winter Classic Rerun: Same Teams Every Year The Winter Classic is set to play on New Years Day. A great tribute to how hockey began, outside, but…why in the world do we have to watch the same teams each year. This years matchup is the Chicago Blackhawks versus the Boston Bruins at historic Notre Dame Stadium. Sounds epic right, not so much, the problem is this is the 4th time for the Blackhawks and 3rd time for the Bruins in the Winter Classic. Yes I know they are big television markets but seriously NHL give us some variety and give us some change. I have a plan to make the Winter Classic an amazing showcase of the entire NHL, and an amazing New Years television production. PODCAST
  6. THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 45 Philly Disaster and Bye Bye Berglund$ The Philadelphia Flyers are not in the Christmas spirit as they fire head coach Dave Hakstol.

They then move topics to teams in jeopardy of possible relocation and what cities would be successful homes to teams on the move.

  9. The Instigator |Episode 20 Reaves Night of Revenge Vegas Golden Knights tough guy Ryan Reaves got his revenge on Washington Capitals enforcer Tom Wilson. It came with a vicious blind sided hit. Was it revenge for beating them in the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals or was it revenge for all of the dirty hits and players he has injured over the past few years. I am guessing the latter of the two. Wilson has a reputation of being a predator. Well on this night of revenge, he became the victim. It delighted many, now I don’t want any player hurt, but I think we all chuckled when the controversial player got a bit of his own medicine. PODCAST

  13. It is American Thanksgiving weekend and the NHL season is now in full swing. The divisional races are already heating up. Some teams are playing themselves into playoff spots and other teams are doing the opposite and really making things hard on themselves. In this time of thankfulness every team does have one thing to be thankful for: Florida Panthers – Roberto Luongo, he is playing great (even at his age) and is even a better ambassador for hockey in Florida. Amended --- injured as this was written,,,the luck could not be worse in Florida… Carolina Hurricanes – The Celebration --- WOW! Ottawa Senators – GOALS, GOALS, GOALS – lead the entire league with 3.57 goals per game. Amazing for a team predicted to finish last. Arizona Coyotes – The best penalty kill in the NHL at 91.7%. Calgary Flames – A solid back-up goalie in David Rittich. With Mike Smith having horrible struggles the play of Rittich has been a welcome surprise. Columbus Blue Jackets – They have to be thankful for their 2ndplace in the Metro Division. They don’t have great team stats, so this is great news to be in a playoff spot. Dallas Stars – The defense has been strong, 6thin goals against at 2.57. Now come on offense. New York Islanders – The end of Barclays is coming closer every day. Vancouver Canucks – Elias Petterson – the young star is giving the fans hope for the future. Anaheim Ducks – Goaltending is great. Gibson and Miller have been saviors. Winnipeg Jets – A general manager that stayed the course. Their cupboards are stocked with great players and prospects. Colorado Avalanche – The hottest line in hockey – Landeskog/MacKinnon/Rantanen Buffalo Sabres – Jeff Skinner 23 Points. He has elevated the play of Eichel and revitalized Jason Pominville. Los Angeles Kings – Quick returning from injury sooner than expected. New Jersey Devils – They have $13+ million dollars in cap space. They made need some reinforcement to get back to last years levels. Minnesota Wild – Consistency – This team finds a way to make the playoffs and each and every year and this year looks like more of the same. Tampa Bay Lightning – Scoring Depth – with Kucherov, Point, Gourde and Stamkos collecting points at a point a game pace what more could you ask for. St. Louis Blues – There is only 60 games left in the season…… Detroit Red Wings – The opportunity to draft high for once. Stock the cupboards with young talent. San Jose Sharks – Erik Karlsson scoring his first goal and getting that over with. Time to focus on winning. Montreal Canadiens – Hard work ethic – the only way they are winning. Outwork opponents. Edmonton Oilers – The new savior Ken Hitchcock (is this the sixth one???) Nashville Predators – Pekka Rinne and Jusse Saros. The top goalie tandem in the league. Philadelphia Flyers – Gritty! What the hell am I kidding... New York Rangers – Honesty. They told their fans times would be difficult. Now they are exceeding everyone’s expectations. Toronto Maple Leafs – John Tavares – He is living up to all the crazy hype. Vegas Golden Knights – A strong franchise start last year. What a great kickstart. Pittsburgh Penguins – Scoring. This team can score. Rated 7thin the NHL, but they are in last place. That will not last long. Washington Capitals – Ovie is still scoring after his summer party. Boston Bruins – The most complete line in hockey – Pastrnak/Bergeron/Marchand Chicago Blackhawks – A healthy Corey Crawford. Be Thankful!
  14. THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 41 Panic in Pittsburgh and Players Under the Radar Brad Burud and Blake Friars talk Pittsburgh Penguins. Should there be panic in the “Steel City” or is all the panic premature. The Penguins find themselves in last place and the hockey world is so not used to seeing that. Then its time to breakdown all the players off to hot starts that were not expected to be doing this well. What players are flying under the radar? Then it’s time to go around the horn and talk injuries, Buffalo Sabres, the “Battle of Alberta”, playoff projections, and a very heated and frustrating listener question. Yes, he is a rat! PODCAST

The numbers are disastrous. Brad Burud discusses what goalies are struggling, and gives insight into why these struggles are taking place.
