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.
On this week’s edition:
We look at Patrick Kane and his record setting point streak. How much longer can he keep it going? What is he doing differently this season, and is he the best player in the world.
We also look at the ageless Jaromir Jagr and his historic marker that puts him fourth all-time in NHL goal scoring. How much higher can he climb on the goals and points charts? Where would he be without the three lockouts and the time he spent in the KHL? How much longer can he keep going.
We also look at the Montreal Canadiens giving Alexander Semin his walking papers, and his return to the KHL. Is he now done with the NHL? We also look at the Habs struggles and recent four game losing streak. How do they go about turning things around.
The boys look at the pacific division. Does anyone want to make the playoffs? Does anyone deserve to? Why have the Sharks, Kings and Ducks fallen from the elite of the NHL to middle of the pack clubs so quickly?
They also look at Brandon Prust’s spear on Brad Marchand. Why is this not suspendable, and how do the boys feel about these types of actions. They look at some of the history of the department of player safety in these decisions.
All that and more in this week’s edition of On the Powerplay.
