S2M: World Cup Day 7: Everything Goes 1-0

On this World Cup edition of Soccer 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Erik Watkins discuss three games that ended with the same scoreline. Plus, Uruguay and Russia have already claimed their places in the knockout phase. But who's set to join them from Group B? 

Can Portugal really just be all Ronaldo? Will it be Spain or Iran making it further? Are we worried about Uruguay after two games? This is all discussed on this edition.


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.


S2M: World Cup Day 6: Russia Shows-Off Again

On this World Cup episode of Soccer 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer, Erik Watkins, and Rachael McKriger are in celebration mode once again because Russia pulled off another fantastic performance, as they have one foot in the qualification door.

They also discuss the first sending off of the tournament in the Colombia vs. Japan contest. And also how a crazy situation probably helped Senegal get the upset against Portugal.

S2M: World Cup Day 3,4,5: Mexico’s Big Upset, VAR Makes It’s Presence Felt

On this special World Cup edition of Soccer 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer, Erik Watkins, and Rachael McKriger discuss the action from Day 3, 4, and 5 of the 2018 World Cup. 

They begin by celebrating in song over Mexico's big win over Germany on Father's Day. While also going over what happened in the other games to. Who's looked good, who has not, and how VAR went from nothing to a big deal in a matter of three days. Should we be worried about France, Germany, Argentina and Brazil? Or are things just a bit more even when it comes to international tournaments? Lots to talk about here.
