On The Power Play: 2017-18 NHL Season Preview

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: 2017-18 NHL Season Preview

On the power play is back and bigger than ever, as the boys put in a ninety minute show to celebrate the opening of the new NHL season. They go division by division on the biggest issues in the game.

First up a look at three new NHL rules and the boys thoughts on them.

Eastern Conference

Can anyone stop the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Metro Division, or will they win a third straight cup? With Kris Letang healthy are they even better than last year? How do Nico Hischier and Nolan Patrick fair? Are the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers worse than last year? Can the Carolina Hurricanes make the playoffs? Where do the Columbus Blue Jackets finish?

In the Atlantic, what do things look like after a turbulent off-season for the Montreal Canadiens? Is Jonathan Drouin a number one centre? Does Steven Stamkos make the Tampa Bay Lightning into a cup contender? Do the Toronto Maple Leafs improve? How good are the Boston Bruins? Is Erik Karlsson healthy? Is there more magic with the Ottawa Senators? Do the Buffalo Sabres finally take a step forward? How much did the Florida Panthers lose this off-season, and can they make the playoffs? Are the Detroit Red Wings the worst team in the conference?

Western Conference

Do the Nashville Predators have the league's best defence? How far can it take them? Do the Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild taken steps back? How do the St. Louis Blues  overcome all the injuries? Have the Winnipeg Jets solved their goaltending woes with Steve Mason? How much better are the Dallas Stars after their epic off-season? Is there anything to look forward to for Colorado Avalanche fans?

Can Connor McDavid lead the Edmonton Oilers to the promised land? Are the Anaheim Ducks still the team to beat in the division? Is Mike Smith the goalie the Calgary Flames have looked for? Can the aging San Jose Sharks still compete? Can the Los Angeles Kings  get back into the playoffs? Is Clayton Keller a Calder Trophy contender for the Arizona Coyotes? What happens to Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin with the Vancouver Canucks rebuilding? How good are the expansion Vegas Golden Knights?

All this and more as we go On The Power Play

We then turn our attention to the final furlong of the 2023 rugby world bidding. Will it be Guinness, Champagne or Castle larger being toasted when the final decision is made?

Premiership Review

Falcons soar to top spot before the Saints ascend above them. Tigers appear to have fully woken from their summer slumber by downing the Chiefs and Bath swat Wasps aside at the Ricoh.

And much more in our full roundup.

Pro 14 Recap

Zebre charge past Ulster and Glasgow’s perfect start continues while the Cheetahs take a bite out of the Ospreys in South Africa.

Rugby Championship

New Zealand continue to be a little bit good at rugby and clinch the title. South Africa and Australia can’t be separated (again), not even by a hairs breadth.

And as always we’ll bring you our tries of weeks, hits of the week and bin juice.
