Has Karlsson Been Traded Yet?



The news? There is no news. The guys discuss the slow-moving discussions around the pending Erik Karlsson trade, from cost to rosters and how Miro Heiskanen is most definitely better than Erik Karlsson and nothing can go wrong.


Free Agent Frenzy



With all of the deals flooding in from free agency and Tavares jumping to Toronto, we give our opinions on all of the major moves. Daniel and Taylor debate the merits of controversial moves from the Dallas Stars after missing out on Tavares. We discuss Stastny spurning Winnepeg for the Vegas Golden Knights, the ridiculous contracts, the goalie carousel, and Dylan, of course, goes over the Red Wings minor moves. At the end, we fail to predict the future! Yeah the O’Reilly trade happened right when we finished recording.


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.


Vegas Feeds on Your Doubt



Vegas continues to thrive on our doubts, and the Texas Stars recent success begs the question if farm team success even matters. In this episode, we marvel at Fleury’s stealing of a series and the possibility that the Jets were worn out from their seven game slugfest with the Predators. We then transition to talk about the Texas Stars also having an amazing goaltender in Mike McKenna and their strong chance of winning the Calder Cup. Both the Texas Stars and the Red Wings’ Grand Rapids Griffins have won Calder Cups recently. We wonder why this hasn’t translated to success at the NHL level.


The Jim Trinity Arrives in Dallas



The Stars have found their new head coach, and his name is Jim! Monty looks to bring a fast-paced aggressive system and be a coach that the players trust. Before we get into all of this on the episode, we discuss the historic ending of the Capitals meme of never reaching past the second round. We discuss the dominance of the Tampa Bay Lightning and our excitement to see Brad Marchand and his licking of players gone from the playoffs. We discuss the insane game 7 coming up between the Preds and Jets Thursday night. And of course we discuss the underdog or underdogs, the Vegas Golden Nights and their historic run to the conference finals. Finally, we preview some exciting things that we will be covering in the summer, whether that be the draft coverage or advanced statistics Dylan did on the stars and red wings’ season.


The Draft is Coming to Dallas (and we’re already here!)



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.


The Hamburglar Strikes Again!



Taylor is back this week and the Hamburglar is back to save another team. In this episode, we cover all things playoffs. The return of the Hamburglar, the former Senator’s savior, provides hope to the Avalanche with a 42 save monster performance in his first NHL game in over a year after toiling in the AHL this season.

Playoff Updates Galore:

The shocking sweeps accomplished by the Sharks and Golden Knights, Dylan’s refusal to let go of his hope in the Maple Leafs, and the elephant in the room that is the amazingness of Taylor’s predictions that put the rest of the podcast to shame.

Lastly, we provide an update on the coaching vacancies in the league and our top candidate to be the Stars’ next coach.


Who will be the NEW GM of the Dallas Stars



Hitch is gone.

The playoffs are in full swing.

Daniel has a half a voice. Taylor is missing in action. Dylan barely survived his whirlwind weekend.

And we’re a bit late to the presses because of our stalwart (and tardy) producer. Better late than never!


Our Playoff Predictions



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.
