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.
This week Ben and Dave are joined by LWOS Hockey Department head Zachary Devine.
The trio look at the latest news in the NHL, including the $73 million salary cap; the Leafs trade for goaltender Frederik Andersen; and the big trade between the Chicago Blackhawks and Carolina Hurricanes. How do these moves effect the NHL landscape? They also look at Alex Goligoski and Keith Yandle being on the move. How will they help their new teams.
The Boys also give a full NHL Draft Preview. Austin Matthews or Patrick Laine? What about Jesse Puljujarvi, Pierre-Luc Dubois and Matthew Tkachuk? Who is the best defenceman in the draft, Olli Juolevi, Mikhail Sergachev, or Jakub Chychrun? Where will the goalies go? Who is the best option down the middle; Logan Brown, Clayton Keller, or Tyson Jost? What about Alexander Nylander? How does he compare to his brother, William Nylander? What about the BCHL defencemen Dante Fabbro and Dennis Cholowski, how good are they?
All this and more, as we go on the power play.
NOTE DUE TO A FAMILY EMERGENCY OUR SOUND EDITOR WAS UNABLE TO GET TO THE PODCAST THIS WEEK. WE ARE PUBLISHING THE RAW AUDIO TO GET IT OUT BEFORE THE NHL DRAFT. IT WILL BE IN 7 PARTS.
