Next, Alex and Chace switch over to the bad signings of the weekend. Alex is still in shock at how NHL General Managers think. Wondering how they can keep making the same mistakes over and over again. They debate who had the best vs worst weekend in the league.

Lastly, they break down the Ryan O'Reilly trade. They talk about why Buffalo moved him and whether they got enough for him. They look at who won the deal and if it made sense from both sides.

Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Colton. Join Ben Kerr and Colton Praill each week as they take a look at the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.

OTPP: NHL Trades, NHL Draft, Hockey Hall of Fame

The last week has brought us three big NHL Trades. How will Philipp Grubauer fit in with the Colorado Avalanche? What does the move mean for Semyon Varlamov? Who won the big deal between the Calgary Flames and Carolina Hurricanes? How good can Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm be? Is Dougie Hamilton the best player in the deal? What did the Buffalo Sabres get in Conor Sheary and Matt Hunwick? How will the Pittsburgh Penguins spend their cap space?

What was the story behind Devante Smith-Pelly not receiving a qualifying offer, but re-signing with the Washington Capitals?

They also look at the Hockey Hall of Fame Announcement.  Is Martin Brodeur the best goalie ever? Did Martin St. Louis deserve to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer? How good was Alexander Yakushev? Why is Jayna Hefford a women's hockey legend? What does the election of Willie O'Ree mean? Does Gary Bettman deserve the honour?

We also look at the NHL? Who made the best picks? The biggest reach? What was the story of all the small-skilled defencemen? What should we expect of Rasmus Dahlin? Jesperi Kotkaniemi? Brady Tkachuk? Vitali Kravtsov?

Now that they are out of the John Tavares sweepstakes, what does Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin do to rebuild the team? Should he pursue Paul Stastny or Ryan O'Reilly? What about secondary options like Tyler Bozak and Riley Nash? Can he get a defenceman like Calvin de Haan? Should he take another option and go into a full-scale rebuild?

All this and More as we go on the Power Play.

Following that, Alex and Chace take a look at the Ottawa Senators once again. The focus of their podcast last week came back with a Hoffman trade. Alex is not happy with his Senators team and wants to know what the plan really is.

The final trade segment is actually a trade rumour. The guys break down the Artemi Panarin trade rumours and why almost every team should be jumping to trade for him.

After that, Alex and Chace run down who they think will and should win the major hardware at the NHL Awards. Running over why or why not they think players should win.

OTPP: Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens Trades, Barry Trotz Decision, NHL Draft

Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Colton. Join Ben Kerr and Colton Praill each week as they take a look at the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.

OTPP: Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens Trades

The boys start off by looking at the series of trades that sees Mike Hoffman head to the Florida Panthers, a bunch of draft picks head to the San Jose Sharks, and Mikkel Boedker end up with the Ottawa Senators. Did Pierre Dorion misplay the situation? Who is the next player out of Ottawa? How did Doug Wilson get such a steal? Why is Colton on a rant?

The boys also look at the Montreal Canadiens sending Alex Galchenyuk to the Arizona Coyotes for Max Domi. Is this trade enough to get Ben to match Colton's rant? Why does Marc Bergevin keep making these June blockbusters and why does he keep failing to address the Habs biggest needs? What is next in Montreal? What does Domi bring to the table? How important is the fact he grew up as the son of Tie Domi in a market like Toronto?

The boys also look at Artemi Panarin. What is he worth on the market? What does the news that he is available for trade mean for the other wingers on the market? Does it change things for the free agents like James van Riemsdyk, Ilya Kovalchuk, and James Neal?

Barry Trotz Decision

Head coach Barry Trotz is leaving the Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals. Where does he go next? Does it affect John Tavares decision? Does he go to the new Seattle franchise? Is there any club willing to fire their coach to hire him?

NHL Draft

The boys discuss the upcoming NHL Draft. Who is overrated? Underrated? Who do the Habs take at 3? The Sens at 4? Who is an unknown prospect to watch?

All that and more as we go On the Power Play.
