Things have definitely settled down in the hockey world since our last podcast, with a large majority of the notable free agent signings having long since been settled. That left us with a riveting medley of subtopics to dissect this week, ranging from the earth-shattering Dany Heatley-to-Anaheim news, to an extended discussion about how many fighting majors the San Jose Sharks will incur next season.
It's worth noting that these podcasts have become increasingly fun (for me, and I hope you, the listener) as we witness my co-host Mr.Fin get more and more comfortable in his now-permanent emotional fetal position with each passing week.
As the show went on we also got around to talking about the likelihood of Evander Kane being traded, the new threshold set for paying superstars by the Toews and Kane contracts, and whether we would've personally given someone with as little NHL experience as Cory Schneider the contract that the New Jersey Devils did. All of that good stuff is just past the jump.

While in Philadelphia for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Habs blogger Andrew Berkshire and myself hopped in a cab that already had two people in it. We started talking and it turned out those two other people were player agents Darryl Wolski of 2112 Hockey Agency and Aaron Schwartz of The Hockey Group.
Darryl and Aaron joined us on a lunch meet up and told us their stories and unique perspectives. While Darryl had been a player agent for a number of years, Aaron had only recently stepped aside from playing hockey to become an agent just six months ago.
Both agents agreed to an interview after lunch, sharing what it's like to be an agent, misconceptions of the job, how to get started, and more.

There's most certainly no shortage of discussion points for this week's edition of the podcast, seeing as we're just a day removed from a 48-hour spending frenzy in the NHL. With an overwhelmingly large majority of the notable signings already in the books, we broke things down in a 'Winners' and 'Losers'-themed show.
