Last Word on Sports is proud to present their hockey podcast, On the Power Play with Ben and Colton. Join Ben Kerr and Colton Praill each week as they take a look at the Hockey World focusing on the big issues of the NHL and elsewhere.
OTPP: Lebreton Flats, Erik Karlsson, Chronic Fatigued Carey Price and More
The big news of the week comes out of Ottawa. The Lebreton Flats project appears to be moving forward, and the NCC will have their announcement on Thursday. What does this mean for the Ottawa Senators? Can Eugene Melnyk finance the arena? After Pierre Dorion‘s comments, will Erik Karlsson still be a Senator when it happens?
In other arena news, the New York Islanders could play some games at their old home, Nassau Coliseum, while they wait for their new rink in Belmont Park. What does this mean for fans? How will ticket packages and transportation work? Could the Isles do some other throwbacks?
Meanwhile, reports indicate that Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price was suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome earlier this year? What does this mean for the soon-to-be $10.5 million man? How did the Canadiens handle it?
The Vegas Golden Knights were first overall in the NHL for a brief time earlier this week. Does this change the team’s plan to build for the future? What should they do at the NHL Trade Deadline? How Soon is Now?
All that and more, as we go On the Power Play.
