In this episode, we talk all things playoffs, draft lottery, and our hope to be at the NHL draft in Dallas this June! It’s just Taylor and Dylan this episode, but we somehow make it through 30 mins without getting too side-tracked. Ok, we may go into one short rant about Ciarelli…it’s so difficult not too! In addition, we talk about our playoff predictions, Marchand’s bizarre licking of people, and a brief preview of who the Red Wings and Stars might draft.

Taylor is back this week and the Hamburglar is back to save another team. In this episode, we cover all things playoffs.

Everyone is back together!
For each playoff series, we talk about the key factors that we think will decide each match-up’s fate.
Lastly, Taylor talks about what the Stars’ roster may look like next year as the stars have a couple of exciting young additions and cap space to sign free agents like the much-sought-after John Tavares.
Why do we have the mysterious lines we find on the hockey rink? Taylor and Daniel are out of town, so Dylan talks about offsides in hockey and how teams try to enter the offensive zone. AND he looks at the history of line-related rules in the NHL, their evolution over time and suggests that maybe it’s time for one more mutation: losing offsides rules to increase the speed and aggression of the game.
At the end, there’s a brief update on the stars not yet over playoff race. What Taylor would say, if he were in town:
