habsleafslogolg6315018Recorded Sep 30, 2017. Skip and Josh preview the upcoming NHL season with none other than hockey writer David Alter who has been a contributor on The Fan 590, Sportsnet, MapleLeafs.com, National Post & The Athletic. The Leafs have big expectations this year in Toronto and David breaks down the goaltending situation, how the defencemen stack up, the progression of all the young stars and the acquisition of Patrick Marleau. Elsewhere in the Atlantic division: How will the Habs do this season? Are they better or worse than last year? Do they have enough depth on the blueline? How will Jonathan Drouin fit in? And are Habs fans destined for another season of solely relying on Carey Price?  The guys discuss the contenders and pretenders in the Metropolitan division where the Penguins are still the team to beat. In the Western conference, can Connor McDavid and the Oilers contend? Can the Predators make it back to the finals? David also has a pretty radical idea about how to change the playoff format which is something that Skip and Josh fully endorse.
