ScuttlePuck Episode 11: NHL Eastern Conference Predictions. NHL Expansion?

In this week’s episode, Pete and I make our predictions for the National Hockey League’s Eastern Conference.  We also add a prediction based solely on last season’s Fenwick stats.  We discuss possible NHL expansion into Seattle and the sustainability of the Florida ScuttlepuckLogo_smlPanthers. The extraskater.com website went down this week and we speculate on reasons why.  The question for our listeners is who will win the Connor McDavid / Jack Eichel sweepstakes (ie. finish last in the NHL).  Send tweets using #scuttlepuck or email scuttlepuck@gmail.com.

ScuttlePuck Episode 9: PK Subban and Habs go to arbitration


We did the podcast on Friday due to holiday schedules.  PK had gone to arbitration but no deal was done yet. Pete proves to have a  remarkably clear crystal ball.

We also discussed Jake Gardiner signing with the Leafs and what that shows of the changes to their front office. Robin Lehner signs with the Senators.

ScuttlePuck Episode 8: Leafs Hire Dubas, Mike does BBQ, Pete talks Habs

ScuttlepuckLogo_smlIn this week’s episode of ScuttlePuck, I podcast outside from the shores of Sturgeon Lake, while cooking up some Texas style barbecue on this incredible BBQ Pit which was trailered all the way from Tomball Texas.  Pete podcasts from home while he preps for a week long camping trip.  It must be summer!  Don’t mind the background noise like boats and rainfall!ClimateChaos

Pete and I talk the Leafs recent hire of Kyle Dubas, and their signing of Reimer, Franson and Booth.  Pete gives his predictions on the Habs’ fortunes this year and we discuss the merits of having an open mind when it comes to fancy stats.  We also give our Western Conference predictions for one team who gets into the playoffs and one team who falls out. This and much more.
