ScuttlePuck Episode 25: What’s wrong with the LA Kings? Should Connor McDavid be fighting? Is the NHL going to Las Vegas?


ScuttlepuckLogo_sml

In this week’s ScuttlePuck NHL hockey podcast, Pete and Mike debate whether Connor McDavid should be fighting and whether the NHL is seriously considering putting a team in Las Vegas.

Also, are the Montreal Canadiens for real?  Jakub Voracek is playing great hockey and leads the NHL in points.

We do a deep dive into the LA Kings‘ stats to see if we should expect them to do better, or if they are truly a playoff bubble team.

Using fancy stats, Mike compares some of the teams that should start to move up the standings and which ones should drop.  Minnesota Wild and Calgary Flames are teams expected to move in the near future.

Two ScuttlePuck Episodes in 1 week!


ScuttlepuckLogo_sml

In Episode 22, we discuss Stephane Quintal’s first real tests of the season as head of the NHL Department of Player Safety as he doles out several suspensions.

We also discuss how being a fan is an odd experience.  The Edmonton Oilers lose a couple, but how are they playing? Is there reason for optimism?  Taylor Hall got injured – what does this mean for the Oil?

With Connor McDavid of the Erie Otters tearing up the OHL, we ask how good can he be?  Can he be better than Sidney Crosby? Mario Lemieux? Wayne Gretzky? Is it even possible for someone to dominate the game the way Gretzky and Lemieux did?

Is Jakob Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers the real deal?

Has James Reimer taken the number one role for the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Episode 23 of the ScuttlePuck NHL podcast is a special edition preview of the Oilers and Flyers game with special guest Thomas Krulikowski (@tommykru06) of the whyhockey periodical podcast.

We discuss the recent suspensions in the NHL to Brad Ference of the Edmonton Oilers.  Was this payback for previous Kassian transgressions?  Dave Leggio, AHL netminder figures out a clever trick to avoid a 2 on 0 and we talk all about it.

The National Hockey League season has been full of surprises and we discuss what teams are doing well, which ones are likely to improve and who will drop off.

Most importantly, we preview the game and discuss the effect of the Taylor Hall injury, the play of Jakob Voracek and ask the question, should the Flyers tank?

ScuttlePuck Episode 20: PK Subban lights it up for Habs. Milan Lucic salutes Habs fans as only he can. Oilers mercifully send Darnell Nurse down. Sidney Crosby is really good.


ScuttlepuckLogo_sml

In this episode Mike and Pete discuss the first full week of hockey in the National Hockey League.  Despite a 5-1 start, Pete isn’t entirely happy with the play of the Montreal Canadiens and asks that the Habs play a complete game.  He is quite pleased with PK Subban’s play, and why not – the guy is amazing! We also give our thoughts on Milan Lucic just being Milan Lucic, which is fun.  Mike isn’t ready to give up on the Oilers, and gives his thoughts on what needs to change – is it the coach?

John Scott destroyed Mikhail Grabovski of the Islanders this week and the guys discuss whether it was a clean hit or a suspendable offense.

Rick Nash is off to a good start but is it sustainable?

Sidney Crosby is good and the guys get into what is so special about him.

All this and we announce some plans to have our first listener join us on the show.

All this and much more.

ScuttlePuck Episode 18:Bobby Ryan, Torey Krug, Reilly Smith sign. Boychuck, Leddy to Islanders. NHL starts this week!


ScuttlepuckLogo_smlThere was lots to talk about in the National Hockey League this week as we eagerly await the first regular season games on October 8!  Bobby Ryan signs a $7.25MM / 7 year deal with the Ottawa Senators while the Boston Bruins convince Krug and Smith to sign for discounts for one year to help with their cap troubles.  To get under the cap, they trade Johnny Boychuck to the New York Islanders who also pick up Nick Leddy from the Chicago Blackhawks. The Islanders look like they could make some serious waves in the Metropolitan division.

We make our Conference titles and Stanley Cup predictions. Who will come out on top?

The Arizona Coyotes situation was in the news this week as Andrew Barroway is looking buy 51% of the team.  This makes no sense unless other things are in the works…

We got new data on the countries from which people are listening to the podcast and it blew our minds! We ask listeners to send us an email or tweet at us from far away, exotic lands.

All this and much more.

Pete likes Tampa Bay Lightning‘s new thirds but Mike, not so much.  Mike goes in-depth on goaltender analytics and how they show who is better, Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers or Boston BruinsTuukka Rask.  Also what they say about Marc Andre Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

We each discuss our favourite teams, the Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers and who looks good so far. ScuttlepuckLogo_sml

The Ryan Johansen contract hasn’t changed, other than the agent’s demands and we give our take on Gary Bettman‘s latest musings on expansion into Toronto.
