Trade Deadline Extravaganza

With the 2020 NHL Trade Deadline in the books, Ryan and Rory look around the league at the big winners and a couple losers. They are joined by Luke Fox, who re-lives the Maple Leafs’ crazy past few days and has a take on where GM Kyle Dubas’s head is at; Dan Murphy, who believes the Canucks have what it takes to keep their heads above water despite losing Jacob Markstrom; and Mark Spector, who discusses the Oilers’ depth additions and how everyone is excited about burner Andreas Athanasiou skating beside Mr. Blur himself, Connor McDavid.

The Frenzy Has Begun

On A Wing And A Prayer

Jim Rutherford is doing his thing, trading for Jason Zucker in the hopes he can squeeze another championship out of this Pittsburgh Penguins club. How will that move affect the winger market and could Zucker’s old team in Minnesota still turn into a big-time seller? Edmonton is a club many thought had interest in some supplementary scoring — especially with Connor McDavid on the shelf — but is the emergence of Kailer Yamamoto could be tempering that need?

To close out, Sportsnet’s Iain MacIntyre joins the show to discuss a special night in Vancouver, as Canucks alumni poured out to watch Daniel and Henrik Sedin have their numbers raised to the rafters. In addition to some reminiscing, MacIntyre lays out what he sees Vancouver doing at the deadline and beyond, as goalie and UFA-to-be Jacob Markstrom might be pricing himself out of the Canucks’ range with his stellar play.

This episode is produced and mixed by Amil Delic, edited by Michael Mayers, and hosted by Rory Boylen and Ryan Dixon.

The Trades Are Here! Breaking Down The Leafs-Kings Swap

The Maple Leafs finally found themselves a backup goalie, but will Jack Campbell and Kyle Clifford be enough to solidify a playoff spot? Ryan and Rory discuss.

If Toronto was the team most in need of a specific upgrade, the Arizona Coyotes might not be far behind. The Coyotes already made the blockbuster deal of the season, but where do they go from here as they flirt with the disaster of falling out of a playoff position?

Finally, Ron MacLean joins to the show to discuss the 20th installment of Hockey Day in Canada.
