Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play 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 is joined by Zach Anderson. The two have an exciting announcement for the future of Last Word on Sports Hockey, as it finds a new home on facebook. Come check out the new digs, and also don’t forget to participate in a contest to win free product (you don’t even have to pay shipping) from our friends at Chillpuck.com.
Zach and Ben then discuss the biggest topics of the week. The New York Rangers have traded Derick Brassard and a 7th round pick to the Ottawa Senators for Mika Zibanejad and a second rounder. The boys break it all down. What does it mean for each team, and where do we go from here?
They also look at Jamie Benn‘s new monster contract with the Dallas Stars. Benn will be getting $76 million over the next eight years. Does the 2014-15 Art Ross Trophy winner deserve that kind of coin, and what is his place in the NHL echelon?
Dave then stops in to discuss other big moves, such as the signings of Mark Scheifele, Alex Killorn, and Jaden Schwartz. They also look at Kyle Palmieri being named to Team USA for the World Cup of Hockey, and the rest of the major hockey news of the week.
We bring it all to you, as we go On The Power Play.
