The guys are back and with all the news of the past week! Alex and Chace start by taking a look at some of the extensions signed this past week. They start with the Anthony Mantha contract in Detroit. The guys give their thoughts on it and overall feel the deal was solid.

Following that, they look at the big one, Nikita Kucherov. They discuss what type of player Kucherov is and how good he really is. Exploring whether or not they believe this was a good deal for the Bolts.

Finally, the guys switch to the main topic of the podcast, the Islanders. The deep dive includes looking at the Isles team. From the forwards, Alex can't believe they have under contract, to the defence Chace finds very underwhelming. They look at mistakes this team has made in the past year. They also look at the future and what it holds. They finally talk about how they would fix the Islanders going forward.

Following that, they take a look at some of the smarter cheap deals that came out of NHL Free Agency. Debating what players could make an impact at a low cost.

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.

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.

Last Word on Habs Pod – Episode 18 (Habs Living Wake)

The Last Word on Habs Pod is brought to you by the Last Word on Sports Network. Co-hosted by the LWOH Montreal Canadiens team manager Connor Lapalme and Johannes Wheeldon, it is a weekly look at the Habs and features guests from the Last Word on Sports community and others. Join us for smart takes, controversial opinions, and news you can use about the Montreal Canadiens.

This week Connor and Johannes discuss why there was no show last week. To make up for missing last week, our hosts look to provide two times the entertainment to their listeners this week.

As for the Habs, our hosts look back on the two weeks since the Trade Deadline. Connor worries if the Habs will go on a useless run to pull themselves out off a prime draft position. Johannes wants to know about how the rest of the year will play out in the Montreal media as pundits are starting to express their opinions on the Habs. Johannes, with the help of hindsight, wonders why Marc Bergevin was in such a rush to announce Carey Price's extension last offseason. Connor thinks it might have been a form of damage control after missing out on free agents.

The focus then shifts, as usual, to Geoff Molson and Marc Bergevin. Our hosts try to find out why Geoff Molson is comfortable keeping Bergevin around after missing the playoffs two of the last three years. Our hosts discuss if there is a path to redemption for Bergevin. Johannes wonders what unhappy fans can do to convince Molson that Bergevin should be ousted.

Do the Canadiens know how to maximize their assets? Our hosts discuss if the Habs are good at setting up their players for success. They focus on Jonathan Drouin and Alex Galchenyuk and why the team continues to play them out of position and expect greatness.

All this and baby talk, a look to free agency, did Max Pacioretty ask for a trade at the deadline and an honest take on how much Habs we will be watching down the stretch.

OTPP: Trade Deadline Show

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.

Paul Stastny, Ryan McDonagh, Rick Nash, Tomas Plekanec, and the Rest of the Big Deals at the NHL Trade Deadline

We start off with the most surprising move of the day, as Paul Stastny joins the Winnipeg Jets. Are the Jets true Cup Contenders? Are the St. Louis Blues giving up on the season? What does this move mean for the landscape of the Western Conference?

Out east, the Tampa Bay Lightning picked up Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller from the New York Rangers. Are they the new Stanley Cup favorites? How did the Rangers do in the deal?

Patrick Maroon only gets a third and c-level prospect from the New Jersey Devils. Did Peter Chiarelli make another error?

Is Rick Nash the piece the Boston Bruins needed? Did they give up too much? How does the trade compare to the Columbus Blue Jackets acquisition of Thomas Vanek?

The Toronto Maple Leafs added Habs forward Tomas Plekanec. What does this mean for each of the rivals?

Other big moves include Tomas Tatar, Ryan Hartman, Evander Kane, and Derick Brassard. Do they put their teams over the top?

They also look at the moves that didn't happen. Why did the Detroit Red Wings keep Mike Green? What is next for Max Pacioretty, Mike Hoffman, and of course Erik Karlsson?

The boys also discuss the Olympics. How do they feel about the Olympic Athletes from Russia and Germany facing off in the Gold Medal Game? What about the Women's Tournament and a gold medal for the United States?

All this and more as we go on the power play.
