Jakub Vrana Waived

Alex and Chace are back for their first podcast episode of 2023! Alex has already looked at the 2023 Ottawa Senators. Now, the guys take a look at what is happening around the league. Starting with the news of the Detroit Red Wings making a change which led to Jakub Vrana being waived.

Today, he cleared waivers which had everyone up in a frenzy. The guys look over why it shouldn’t be a surprise no one claimed him and what may happen from here on in. They also have a debate about what exactly is Vrana. Is he an elite goal scorer? A routine injury risk? Both?

From there, they look at the Florida Panthers and how they may be in trouble. Currently eight points out of a playoff spot, the Panthers season may already be over. The weirdest thing is, why? The guys go through how they have been playing and highlight that it shouldn’t be this bad. However, the team still finds itself in a very tough spot to climb out of.

Who are Alex and Chace? Alex and Chace are both from the Waterloo region in Ontario, Canada. Both of them grew up playing hockey and shortly after fell in love with analyzing it. Chace is a noted Leafs and Penguins fan, while Alex is a die-hard Senators fan. You can find Alex’s work at, including his other podcast, The Last Word on Sens Podcast.
