OTPP: NHL Off-Season

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

OTPP: NHL Off-Season Review

Today on On The Powerplay, we look at the best and worst teams this NHL off-season.

Advanced stats suggest the Carolina Hurricanes had the best off-season. What are the Hurricanes getting and what does it mean? Can Scott Darling solve the goaltending issues?

The Dallas Stars had big pick-ups. Does Ben Bishop fix their goaltending? Where do Alexander Radulov and Martin Hanzal fit? Can Marc Methot shore up the defence or is more needed.

The Washington Capitals took major hits this off-season. How good will they be without Kevin Shattenkirk, Karl Alzner, Nate Schmidt, Marcus Johansson, and Justin Williams?

Can the Chicago Blackhawks recover from their losses, especially on the blue-line?

The New York Rangers upgraded the blue line, but down graded up front. What does it mean?

What is Marc Bergevin doing for the Montreal Canadiens?

Does Patrick Marleau improve the Toronto Maple Leafs? How much? What is going on with their cap?

 

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

OTPP: NHL Off-Season, Expansion Draft, Entry Draft, Trades

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

OTPP: NHL Off-Season, Expansion Draft, Entry Draft, Trades

We are just a few days into the NHL Off-Season and its already been very busy as general managers look to re-stock talent.

The Montreal Canadiens acquired Jonathan Drouin from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for top prospect Mikhail Sergachev. Where does he fit? Does he solve the Habs offensive woes. Why is Tampa making the deal and what are they getting? Will Sergachev play this year?

The Calgary Flames added Mike Smith from Arizona. Does he finally solve their goaltending issues? What did the Coyotes get in the deal. Who will be the Coyotes goaltender next year?

Jordan Eberle is a New York Islander and Ryan Strome is an Edmonton Oiler.  Does the change of scenery help both players?

The boys also look at the Vegas Golden Knights and their new roster after the Expansion Draft. What will their team look like? What was the strategy? Who stays and who goes in trade flips? What trades and picks hurt teams and what teams lost the least?

They also examine the NHL Awards.  What were the best and worst moments of the show? Whose votes should be questioned?

The boys finally wrap it all up with an NHL Entry Draft preview.  Nico or Nolan? Who else is out there? Who are Ben's sleepers?

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