MnM Hockey Podcast - Marleau Record, New Contracts, and Playoff Race Talk

Alex and Chace are back a week after the NHL Trade Deadline has passed. Today, they take a look at some NHL contracts that have been signed since the deadline. Names including Adam Lowry, Tanner Pearson and more. Alex discusses why he dislikes a large majority of these deals, feeling the teams would have been better off moving on from them. However, they also discuss Alex Edler and his suspension. Chace states why he likes the suspension and Alex discusses why it feels surprising one was even handed down, to begin with.

From there, they take a look at the Patrick Marleau record as he now has played more games in the NHL than anyone else in history. Some celebrated, others not so much. The guys take a look at both sides of the argument. Finally, Alex and Chace discuss the playoff races in the NHL. Moreso the lack of races happening due to divisional play this season. They talk about whether it's more aggressive and how the wild card actually helps. Tune in for all of that and more, with the MnM Hockey Podcast!

Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens are Lost

This week the guys look back on the trade deadline and what he Habs did. Can Jonathon Merrill and Erik Gustafsson help the Habs struggling defense? Well, their quarantine period is coming to an end so we will see this week, hopefully.

The Habs had some games to play also. Unfortunately for the fans, we had to watch them. On the bright side, the Habs went 2-2 in their four games. The bad part is they looked absolutely terrible in the last three games. Something is not right in Habs land. The guys do their best to get to the bottom of the issue. They also try to keep their spirits up... not an easy task.

All this and coaching decisions, does Cole Caufield play with the Habs this year, the schedule, is Marc Bergevin making lineup decisions, will the Habs make the playoffs, and much much more!

Why There Should Be a New F-Zero game, Another Eden, More - Video Games 2 the MAX # 269

On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX hosts Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison discuss the games they are playing such as Marc finally trying out Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Taiko No Tatsujin, although he got some bad news about his drums. Sean also played Another Eden a mobile JRPG that was put on Steam and how he’s so glad his PC has a touch screen. The NPD numbers from March 2021 are also out too, Sony being the fastest-selling console ever, Monster Hunter Rise and Outriders selling well, and more.

They also discuss the games they are excited about from the Nintendo Indie World Showcase. Sean is happy about seeing more from Last Stop, There is No Game: Wrong Dimension hitting the Switch, more on Cris Tales, and the big announcement of Oxenfree 2. While Marc liked Never Yield and Aztech Forgotten Gods. Marc is also a bit befuddled by Konami’s latest indie title Getsufumaden and this leads to a discussion on a rumor flying around that Microsoft may have purchased the rights to Konami franchises. If it is even real, what could be the result of this?

Plus, a big rumor started suddenly that was quickly and thankfully squashed by the company itself regarding Square-Enix having interested suitors, although the company has no interest in selling at all. The guys talk about what this would mean and how it would not be good for gaming. Plus the latest details on the Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade and the Yuffie DLC finally having a standalone price.

The duo also converses on why there should be another F-Zero game and that the excuse of “we can’t think of anything innovative to do with it” is a really lame reason to not make one. Especially when Nintendo doesn’t have a racing game of this type. They also ponder the same thing for Star Fox. Plus, the end of Nintendo Labo leads to a conversation on what could have been with Toys to Life.

Other things discussed in the episode: Resident Evil 4 VR, WWE 2K22’s debut and the wrestlers that were recently released, and the Upcoming Games.

MnM Hockey Podcast - 2021 NHL Trade Deadline Review

Alex and Chace are back with the NHL Trade Deadline coverage. Last week, they did the NHL Trade Deadline preview. For that, they went through each team and discussed what they should do. Should they buy, sell, or stay put? As well as which players to buy or sell. However, now that the deadline has passed, the guys take a look at some of the trades that actually happened.

Chace has some strong opinions on the Toronto Maple Leafs and their deadline, describing it as underwhelming. As well, Alex thinks the winner of the deadline has to be one of the Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, or Boston Bruins. The guys also discuss a couple of the teams they were disappointed in that they didn't do anything. A pair of teams they thought should sell, but recent winning streaks to place them firmly in fourth changed their minds. As well as a team or two in the North that did nothing but probably should have looked to add.

Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens Humbled

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.

Last Word on Habs Pod: Montreal Canadiens Humbled

It's been a rough week for the Montreal Canadiens. After a seemingly character-building win over the Edmonton Oilers, the Habs hit a wall. The Habs were humbled by the Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets. On top of the three losses, the Habs also lost Brendan Gallagher and Carey Price to injury. Gallagher is out for six weeks with a broken finger. Price, as usual, is shrouded in mystery.

With the Habs clearly struggling something needs to be done. The trade deadline is here, so if Marc Bergevin has a move to make, he better do it now. The hopes are he does something drastic, but the reality is probably nothing. Still, we can hope!

All this and Cole Caufield's debut, Eric Staal's usage, coaching decisions, and much much more!

Tune in!

The Last of Us Remake, Deathloop Delayed, Pac-Man 99

On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX we have way better audio for one, also hosts Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison discuss the news from Bloomberg that The Last of Us Remake is in production and is now being headed by Naughty Dog but it was actually once the task of another studio Visual Arts Service Group. The guys discuss the history of that studio, the news that Bend Studio tried to pitch a Days Gone 2, if Last of Us Remake will follow the HBO show or be super faithful to the original game, and of course there’s a discussion on should it be even made in the first place.

The PlayStation 5 news continues as Bethesda delays Deathloop until September 14, 2021, and a new Survival Shooter Abandoned is begrudgingly announced too. Will Marc give that game a shot?

There are also rumors that Hideo Kojima could partner with Xbox for his next big game. Would he actually do it? Or this all just a big rumor to stir the pot? How major of a move is it for Microsoft if they can pull it off? Also, Sony dealt a blow to Disney in signing a long-term deal with Netflix for their movie rights. So no total Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney + then.

Other things discussed on the show: E3 2021’s major partners, Pac-Man 99, Castlevania Resurrection, Streets of Rage 4 DLC, and of course the Upcoming Games.

Thank you as always for listening and hope everyone has a great week.
