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.

Paul Stastny, Ryan McDonagh, Rick Nash, Tomas Plekanec, and the Rest of the Big Deals at the NHL Trade Deadline

We start off with the most surprising move of the day, as Paul Stastny joins the Winnipeg Jets. Are the Jets true Cup Contenders? Are the St. Louis Blues giving up on the season? What does this move mean for the landscape of the Western Conference?

Out east, the Tampa Bay Lightning picked up Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller from the New York Rangers. Are they the new Stanley Cup favorites? How did the Rangers do in the deal?

Patrick Maroon only gets a third and c-level prospect from the New Jersey Devils. Did Peter Chiarelli make another error?

Is Rick Nash the piece the Boston Bruins needed? Did they give up too much? How does the trade compare to the Columbus Blue Jackets acquisition of Thomas Vanek?

The Toronto Maple Leafs added Habs forward Tomas Plekanec. What does this mean for each of the rivals?

Other big moves include Tomas Tatar, Ryan Hartman, Evander Kane, and Derick Brassard. Do they put their teams over the top?

They also look at the moves that didn’t happen. Why did the Detroit Red Wings keep Mike Green? What is next for Max Pacioretty, Mike Hoffman, and of course Erik Karlsson?

The boys also discuss the Olympics. How do they feel about the Olympic Athletes from Russia and Germany facing off in the Gold Medal Game? What about the Women’s Tournament and a gold medal for the United States?

All this and more as we go on the power play.
