Bill Peters and Mike Babcock

Alex and Chace have a much more serious episode than usual today. For starters, they take a look at the Bill Peters situation which eventually led to him resigning. They try and take a look at hockey culture as a whole and what to learn from this. As well, exactly how to try and fix this so things like this never happen again going forward. Talking about morals, right and wrong, and fixing past mistakes. After Bill Peters, the guys take a look at the Mike Babcock and Mitch Marner situation. Chace wonders how Babcock would have ever thought this was a good idea. Alex thinks that Nazem Kadri and Tyler Bozak showed character by how they handled the situation. Overall, the guys try and look at how it may have affected things like contract negotiations and whether or not we should view them differently.

Lastly, the guys look at a trip of suspensions. Alex wants Robert Bortuzzo out for much longer, however, he actually agrees with the Erik Cernak suspension. After, they also look at the Alexander Kerfoot suspension. Comparing the three and asking what about the length and should injuries affect the outcome? Lastly, the guys talk about the Department of Player Safety and why they need to improve.

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 LastWordOnHockey.com. You can find Chace’s work at hockeyandstuff.weebly.com.
