Tape II Tape NHL Podcast: Elliotte Friedman talks Wild, Canadiens

Ryan Dixon and Rory Boylen co-host Tape to Tape, Sportsnet’s weekly NHL podcast and a one-stop shop for news, analysis, opinion, wild trade speculation and interviews covering news and entertainment around the league.

Want on-point analysis? We got it. Want trade scenarios of all kinds? We got it. Want insightful interviews with insiders, entertainers and players? We got that too. With these two putting their spin and giving their takes on the news each week, there’s no where else NHL fans need to go.


On this week’s show, the guys are joined by Elliotte Friedman, who talks about the firing of Mike Yeo and where the Minnesota Wild can go from here. Friedman also talks about the free-falling Montreal Canadiens, coach Michel Therrien, and if Marc Bergevin could go back on his word that Therrien is safe this season.

Also joining the show is Matt Loughlin, the play-by-play man for the New Jersey Devils. He talks about how the Devils have surprised just about everyone this season, Cory Schneider’s Vezina-calibre performance, and the hilariously awful Joseph Blandisi dive on Tuesday night.

And with the trade deadline near, Ryan and Rory touch on the Steven Stamkos update from GM Steve Yzerman that the Lightning won't trade the pending UFA. Is it even worth it for the Lightning to sign him for $10 million a season? The guys also chat about Jordan Eberle being removed from the trade block by the Oilers, the latest controversial Radko Gudas hit, checks to the head, and much more.
