We’re Back!

Jeff and Elliotte get back into their home studios for a marathon episode covering all sorts of topics after a couple of podcast-free weeks. They discuss the new NHL CBA, the negotiation process, what a flat cap will mean for teams across the league and recent COVID-19 comments by Jonathan Toews.

Then they shift to what’s happening with the Canadiens, whether this is the last chance for the current iteration of the Flames, the Canucks’ complicated off-season, how some coaches could be no-shows for the playoffs and the addition of “unfit to play” to the NHL’s injury jargon.

And then the fun continues with two guests. Penguins GM Jim Rutherford discusses how his team is feeling ahead of training camp and its matchup with Montreal, the CBA impact, adding personalities to the locker room and if he’ll be in Toronto for the re-start. And new Devils coach Lindy Ruff talks about how his coaching style has evolved, being the first coach hired via Zoom, getting to know his players digitally, ping pong, TikTok and more.
