NHL Season Thoughts

The guys are back with a full schedule of things to talk about. The NHL Season is back and Alex and Chace look to talk about all their early thoughts for the year. They start by looking at the Nico Hischier contract and discussing why this could be a very big steal in a few seasons. Looking at if he is underrated or not and why people shouldn’t be upset about this. The guys then switch to the New Jersey Devils start and also will Taylor Hall stay or not?

Next, they take a look at the Toronto Maple Leafs and their complaints with Head Coach Mike Babcock. There has been lots of talk about Babcock, however, Alex thinks a lot of the complaining is unjustified. Believing that Babcock has done what many fans have asked him to do for the past few seasons and that the complaining is unjustified. Once they have a conversation about the backup role, they decide to look around the league at other teams starts.

Finally, the guys take a look at teams like the Edmonton Oilers and Buffalo Sabres and talk about why the early-season points matter. Looking at what kind of hockey they would have to play to keep pace and make the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs this season.

Tune in for all of this and more, with the MnM Hockey Podcast!
