Episode 2-16 Who Even Knows Anymore

Welcome back listeners!

In the first period we discuss the Flames continued up and down play, Mangiapane’s emergence, and where things stand heading into the trade deadline.

In period two, we talk about deals that have already gone down and offer our takes and the anti-Canucks content you know us for.

Period 3 is focused on coaches who have been fired where the NHL coaching recyclotron will spit them out next.

Enjoy!

Episode 2-15 The Rollercoaster

Welcome back listeners!

In the first period we discuss a series of games in which the Flames looked listless and uninspired and then a couple where they looked formidable as they did at times last year. We talk about the injury to Giordano, the forward lines, and what the outlook for the near future is.

In the second period, we talk about the injury to Fredrik Anderson in Toronto and the move to bring in Jack Campbell and Kyle Clifford from the LA Kings. The trade between Pittsburgh and Minnesota that sends Zucker to the Penguins is reviewed. We also talk about the Blue Jackets losing Norris contender Seth Jones for the foreseeable future and whether they will be able to overcome that. Finally we talk about the Darnell Nurse contract extension in Edmonton, a bit surprising being a two year deal.

In period 3 we take a very early look at the draft class of 2019. So far, the top picks Jack Hughes and Kappo Kakko have disappointed and there are not many other standouts. Will this be another 2012 draft where the top end fall way short of expectations?

Thank you so much for listening and let us know if you enjoyed the episode. Until next time!

Episode 2-14 Kawabunga

Welcome back!

In the first period this week we discuss the Flames first week post all-star break. Two blown third period leads, two different shooutout results, two fights, a score settled, a bat toss in hockey, and a new score to settle between old rivals?

In the second period we discuss the skills competition and the all-star games.

In the third period we talk about American bubble teams and give an update on the wildcard playoff picture in the East and West.

Thanks for listening!

Episode 2-13 And Now We Wait

Welcome back listeners!

Are you feeling bored without much NHL hockey and no Flames games to talk about? Give us a listen as we recap a really mediocre last week of games heading into the CBA mandated break and All-Star weekend. We talk about a distracted showing in Montreal, a good tilt with some great goaltending in the Big Smoke, and then a bizarre fiasco in Ottawa.

Of course, we have to weigh in on the Tkachuk vs. Kassian controversy. We welcome any feedback if you agree or disagree with our takes.

In the second period, we do an NHL round-up and talk coaching changes, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the All-Star games and much more!

In the third period (and let’s face it, also a bit in the first period – we can be a tough pair to keep focused sometimes) we talk about buyers and sellers among the Canadian teams. A lot of Northern teams are still in the mix so listen to our thoughts on which direction they will go and also which direction they should go.

Finally in Overtime we give the Calgary Flames forward, defence, and goaltending units a grade at the break.

Enjoy!

Episode 2-12 Can the dad’s attend every game?

Welcome back after a long layoff!

In this episode we review how the Flames did over the past few weeks. It’s been up and down (just like the rest of the season). We talk goaltending and more!

Periods 2 and 3 include a discussion of the current state of the west and the east respectively.

Finally in overtime we make picks for our dream trade scenarios and then actual realistic possibilities (lots of Predators picks in this part).

Enjoy!
