July 18: The NHL's Summer Vacation
July 18 2019

The St. Louis Blues are Stanley Cup Champions, Free Agency is mostly over...so now what?

Ryan and Rory break down the last major FA moves, and spend some time on Mitch Marner vs. the Leafs, as well as the RFAs (Sebastian Aho notwithstanding) who have yet to sign with their teams.

Later, they take a look at how the Winnipeg Jets will compete in a tough Central division race, and end on a way-too-early lookahead to the major free agents of 2020, including the tantalizing decision of Devils forward Taylor Hall. This episode is produced and sound engineered by Shoaib Alli, and hosted by Ryan Dixon and Rory Boylen.

With Leafs GM Kyle Dubas shaking up the roster, Ryan and Rory hop back in the studio for a quick reaction pod to Nazem Kadri's tenure in Toronto coming to an end.

The boys break down what the blue line will look like with new arrivals Tyson Barrie and Cody Ceci occupying new roles, and what the trades do for Toronto's cap situation.

Finally, they tackle the Avalanche and how Kadri's arrival in Colorado will add to an already talented crew.

July 2: Recapping The 2019 Free Agent Frenzy
July 02 2019

The first day of free agency is in the books! Ryan and Rory are all over the big signings, including the Rangers flexing their muscle by inking Artemi Panarin, the Preds doing what everyone expected and signing Matt Duchene, and Florida addressing a huge hole in goal with the Sergei Bobrovsky contract.

They also break down the offer sheet extended to Sebastian Aho by the Montreal Canadiens. Why didn't the Habs up the ante? And what does this mean for the remaining RFAs like Mitch Marner and Patrik Laine?

Finally, the boys touch on every Canadian team, list some free agency winners from Day 1 and dissect a goalie carousel that has numerous masked men landing in new spots.

Note: This episode was recorded before the Leafs/Avalanche evening trade. Reaction to that trade will follow later today or tomorrow!
