The Battle Of Alberta Is On, Limping Leafs And The Latest From New Jersey

Anyone else think the feud between Zack Kassian and Matthew Tkachuk is just getting started? Ryan and Rory discuss how these two re-ignited the Battle of Alberta and how delightful it is that Kassian will return from his suspension just in time to face the Flames.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs are trying to get by with a patchwork defence as Morgan Rielly joins Jake Muzzin on the shelf with a broken foot. Finally, Devils beat writer Abbey Mastracco joins the show to discuss a season of disarray in Jersey and where the team goes after the surprise axing of GM Ray Shero.

How The Canadian Teams Have Performed At The Halfway Mark

With half the season in the books, Ryan and Rory drop in on each Canadian contender to evaluate where they are and where they could be going. Are the Leafs finally who we expected them to be? Which of the four teams in the West can make the playoffs and should the Canadiens officially be selling pieces?

After some MVP-at-the-half chatter, Adam Vingan of The Athletic joins the show to explain why Nashville made a coaching change, what’s been at the root of the Preds’ problems and whether or not new bench boss John Hynes has any buttons to push when it comes to this struggling club.

Dec. 13: Unrest In The West

Meanwhile, the Winnipeg Jets have been one of the league’s best teams since Nov. 1. Sean Reynolds explains how Connor Hellebuyck’s play is driving the team and offers his take on the other things going right for Winnipeg.
