Recorded 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.
Flashback to summer of 1999, a much younger Skip lifting and drinking champagne from the Stanley Cup.
Recorded June 14, 2017. In this Episode Skip and Josh give their final thoughts on the champions being crowned in the NBA and NHL. Is Kevin Durant a hero or a villain? Is free agency ruining pro sports? What’s next for Lebron and the Cavs? And can anyone challenge the Warriors? In the NHL: Who should have really won the Conn Smythe? Why is Crosby so disrespected? Does anyone understand the rules in the NHL? and who are the favorites for next season?
Some amazing behind the scenes video of Sidney Crosby carrying the Stanley Cup into the Penguins dressing room. What make this so special; Crosby is the ultimate Canadian, politely saying excuse me as he is making his way through the crowd of reporters.
