Metro Madness (Division Previews Part 1)



We launch our 2018 preview series with the division that hosts the reigning champs, the Washington Capitals.


New Faces and New Places



Jeff Skinner has found a new home, and Mark Stone will likely be following suit very soon. We discuss how Buffalo might finally climb out of the valley with an influx of new, young talent while Ottawa looks to hit unprecedented lows. Afterwards, we discuss Corey Pronman’s upcoming prospect pipeline series and predict where we think our favorite teams will fall on the list.


Feel the Silence



The boys are back! Hockey, however, is not. After a two week break, we get back into the show with a discussion on Monty’s interview from the Athletic’s Sean Shapiro, the possible end of one of the Red Wings’ finest, and new sounds from the Stars booth.


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.
