Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Powerplay with Ben and Dave. Join Ben Kerr and Dave Gove each week as they take a look around the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.
Its been a crazy week in the Patrick Kane investigation. Dave and Ben review the craziness that was and look at what it all means for Kane, the accuser, the DA, the police, the Blackhawks and more.
On a more positive note, pre-season hockey has begun and Dave talks about his experience watching the Los Angeles Kings get back on the ice.
The boys also look at Erik Johnson’s new contract. Have the Avs overpaid, or is it fair value for their number one defenceman? What about the length of the deal. They also look at Oscar Klefbom’s new contract in Edmonton and why its a gamble for both the Oilers and the young defenceman.
They look at the pre-season starts of Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel. Which rookie is doing better and why?
They also take a look at the Montreal Canadiens decision to name Max Pacioretty the team’s new captain. Did they get it right? What about P.K. Subban, and how much of the team’s leadership comes from star goaltender Carey Price. They also look at Alex Galchenyuk’s move to centre and his chemistry with Alexander Semin.
The boys also look at a crazy story involving Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr. What happened and how has Jagr’s legend grown as a result.
All this and more in the latest edition of On The Powerplay.
