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


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.
