Topics covered on today's edition of the show:

  • The trade between the Islanders and Blackhawks. Why, Garth? You need to log off already. 
  • A look at the impending FA market, and how the league's parity could impact the deadline.
  • Most importantly, we made our picks for this weekend. Loser has to track Latvia/Switzerland.

Picks Contest

Here's the deal. Every Friday we're going to hold a draft in which we take turns picking the winners of that Saturday's slate of games. On Monday we'll recap the results, and the winner will get to pick one game (anytime between Monday-Thursday) which the loser has to watch, and track scoring chances for (which'll be posted on NHL Numbers).

This is our 3rd week running the contest. Cam lost our first go at it, recapping a Phoenix/Buffalo game as the result. This past week I took the loss, and then devoted 3+ hours of my life to a Florida/Toronto game. We clearly mean business. Below are this week's newest set of picks (bold):


Columbus @ San Jose

Edmonton @ New Jersey

Calgary @ Philadelphia

Phoenix @ Dallas

NYR @ Pittsburgh

Florida @ Carolina

Colorado @ NYI

Montreal @ Carolina


Chicago @ Phoenix

Winnipeg @ St.Louis

Ottawa @ Boston

Vancouver @ Toronto

Anaheim @ Nashville

Detroit @ Tampa Bay

New Jersey @ Washington

You'll note that we've included Friday's slate of games into our picks this week. With this being the final week prior to the Sochi Olympic break, and Saturday having an even number of games, we figured this would be the best tiebreaker. The beautiful thing about playing your own game is that you can make up the rules as you go along!

One final programming note: if you've got any questions regarding future episodes, or anything else, feel free to send Cam and Dimitri your questions on Twitter. My email (included below) also works.

Trash it!

Guys, Garth Snow traded two guys who were completely DEAD WOOD on the Isles. Did you look at their stats? Did you notice the helmet PM Bouchard wears? He's like the boy in the bubble. Soft melon. And Regin is about as useless as nipples on a nun. Before talking about Snow (who I hate) giving away stuff to Chicago and paying for half of it, you could as easily ask, "How did Snow get the Hawks to take those guys off his hands AND give him a 4th rounder (rather than a 7th rounder). And as you noted, PM Bouchard will NOT crack the lineup. This was an acquisition to stock Chicago's AHL team and have an injury fill-in in a DIRE emergency. MHO. Cheers.
