NHL Trade Deadline Preview
The guys are back for another week. This week, they decide to look ahead at the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline. With LWOH kicking off their rumour posts, Alex figured it’d be a good time to look at what teams should do. For this, the guys broke teams into 6 categories.
First, they start by looking at teams that should be all in on selling. For whatever reasons. They look at teams that expected to be good and were disappointed. As well as teams that knew they would be in this situation. They talk about who and what to sell for each team.
Following that, they look at teams who are around the bubble. Slight sellers, stay put or slight buyers. It is most teams playing with house money. That or teams that don’t have a great shot at a cup this season.
Next, they look at what teams should be all in buyers. This category has the cup contenders the guys think should go for it. From teams that have a closing window and need to be all in. To teams that have a great young team and have a good opportunity to win now. The guys break down the targets for each team and if they should buy big or small.
Lastly, the guys look at teams they have no idea what to do with. Whether this is a cup team with player UFA problems. Or two teams on the bubble but not sure they should be trying to lose. Alex and Chace discuss what they would do if they were running these teams. Tune in for all of this and more, with the MnM Hockey Podcast!
