The second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs are ALMOST upon us and we’ve got a full bench talking about the sweeps, the short series, the serious lack of upsets and the plethora of coach firings.

The Pittsburgh Penguins take care of the Philadelphia Flyers in six games after an upside down, roller coaster of a series. They are all set to play the Washington Capitals in the second round (stop us if you’ve heard this before)

They also talk Vancouver Canucks. Elias Pettersson wins the Swedish League MVP and literally gets dipped in gold. They discuss the Sedins’ shared nomination for the King Clancy award and Boeser’s chances of winning the Calder Trophy.

They’re talking about the coach vacancies around the league that popped up after an entire season of employment for all 31 head coaches in the league. Calgary has a new head coach, Dallas needs one as do the Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes (at a discounted price).

Finally, a Dave rant about the Flyers fans, the gang gives their Stanley Cup predictions and they pick their best possible lines to win game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final of current players only.

Episode #182 – Demko Arrives & Boston’s Brewing

Episode182

The Vancouver Canucks’ goaltender of the future finally makes his NHL debut… and it was pretty okay.

Ryan, Geeta and P Mac chat over the Easter long weekend to discuss the big debut of Thatcher Demko on Saturday afternoon. After several years of development in college and the AHL, the Canucks’ goaltending prospect made his debut against a Columbus Blue Jackets team hungry for points and home ice advantage.

They also discuss Scott Foster’s emergency call up with the Chicago Blackhawks. His fourteen perfect minutes of play were one of the few bright spots for the struggling Blackhawks this season.

Denis Potvin had some pretty salty words for the Edmonton Oilers. Major praise for McDavid, but heavy criticism for the rest of the team and management. The gang asks what needs to be done over the summer to try and get them back to the playoffs, just one year removed from a second round appearance.

They also discuss the red-hot Boston Bruins. They overtook Tampa atop the Atlantic Division, have some incredible depth and look to be built for the playoffs. How far will they go? And how about that new one year deal for Big Z? Will the Sedins look for something similar?

Enjoy
