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 Bruins‘ Tuukka 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.
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.

In 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!
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.

Check it out – I was vacationing in sunny Sonoma California and took some time away from wine tastings and sitting around the pool to do a podcast. It was before the UFA frenzy but Pete proved prescient. Check it out here: Scuttlepuck
As a little side project, a friend of mine and I started a podcast which is now up on iTunes. Pete Wood and I chat about all things hockey, and other random diversions. Give it a listen and subscribe so you’re aware of future episodes!
