Evaluating the Draft



The Red Wings and the Stars made some pretty interesting selections for the 2018 draft. The whole gang goes through the draft classes for both teams and offers their takes.


2018 Draft Special Edition



The 2018 NHL Draft has arrived! In this special extended episode, Daniel and Taylor discuss the strategies and potential targets for both the Stars and Red Wings ahead of Friday night’s festivities.


All Caps and a Fond Farewell to 2018



Washington won it all and we look back at the mess that was the 2017-18 season. The Capitals players, especially Alex Ovechkin, have been raucously enjoying their new hardware in ways that never cease to entertain. The season as a whole, though, took some very unexpected turns, from players suddenly reemerging to entire teams crumbling under the weight of offseason expectations. We discuss the chances of bizarre history repeating itself and pay homage to the unceremonious end to one of the NHL’s greatest careers.


Nelson’s Betrayal and Capital Punishment



Todd Nelson joins the Stars bench, further breaking Dylan’s heart, and the Capitals might have found the way to stop the Knights. In this week’s episode, we discuss how Nelson’s move from Grand Rapids to the Stars affects the team’s ability to succeed and what it shows about the state of the league as a whole. We also cover the eerily similar Texas-Toronto and Vegas-Washington finals, where the Stars are finding success on the back of incredible goaltending but Vegas is beginning to show signs of falling back to earth.
