  • Feedback – 
  • Gerrard Gallant fired by Vegas in favour of Peter DeBoer and we aren’t sure why
  • Ray Shero fired in NJ. Another odd firing.
  • Department of Player Safety is taking some heat from the players
  • Team of the Week – Winnipeg Jets. Not good numbers, but holding on based on some great goaltending.
  • Is drawing penalties an important skill?
  • Should the Leafs and Oilers make a trade?
  • Leafs update -Do the Leafs have a goaltending problem?
  • Oilers update -Oilers are heating up but Pacific is so tight, they are just holding position. What will the Zack Kassian contract look like? Oilers fans are worried.
