How We Broke Down the NHL Trade Deadline

Hockey is a love language. The grace, speed, and violence join together to create a symphony of crashing cymbals. And it’s music to our ears. Daniel, Taylor, and Dylan are Texan hockey fans. Get to know them and you might find yourself in love with the Dallas Stars (or the Detroit Red Wings!)

In this NHL Trade Deadline Spectacular, our inaugural episode, we break down the numerous and needlessly complicated trades that came in under the wire. We identify the winners and losers in each deal (a surprisingly fair trade cycle, Rick Nash disaster notwithstanding).

Lastly, we get into our weekly segment, Loose-Ends and Hot Takes, where we make our early predictions for which teams will make it to the pinnacle of hockey, Lord Stanley’s Cup itself.
