The Hockey PDOcast offers entertaining and thoughtful dialogue about the game of hockey. There’s obviously an analytical tinge to the conversation, but it’s not as nerdy as it may initially sound.
Sean McIndoe joins Dimitri Filipovic to help unpack the Norris Trophy debate, including debunking the myths that Drew Doughty has been snubbed in years past and that Erik Karlsson is a one-dimensional player. They also discuss the direction of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the NHL system incentivizing teams to bottom out, and the playoff races to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
Here’s a quick rundown of the topics covered:
1:55 The Norris Trophy
15:30 Teams bottoming out
25:10 The late run by the Flyers
29:20 Potential first-round matchups
32:30 The playoff roadblocks for the Sharks
