On this episode, the boys bring on Sportsnet prospect and junior hockey guru Sam Cosentino to break down every aspect of the Memorial Cup. Cosentino starts off by identifying some young players to watch who are eligible for the 2019 and 2020 NHL Draft.

Then, he turns his attention to players already selected by NHL clubs, including Edmonton's Dmitri Samorukov, Montreal's Nick Suzuki and Leafs goalie prospect Ian Scott.

Ryan and Rory close out by offering their take on the Conn Smythe Trophy race and discussing Buffalo's decision to tab Ralph Krueger as the team's next coach.

May 9: The Final (Four) Countdown
May 09 2019

On this episode, Ryan and Rory pour one out for the teams we lost in Round 2. Was Columbus' gamble worth it? Is any team better positioned for the future than Colorado?

The boys then dive into breaking down the two conference finals, making a call in each series. Rory is impressed with Martin Jones' ability to flick the playoff switch and it sure feels like the 'Win it for Jumbo Joe' sentiment is spreading.

Finally, the boys discuss the East showdown between Boston and Carolina, and offer their thoughts on Brad Marchand's tight-lipped ways.

To close out, the guys discuss the trade of defence prospect Adam Fox from Carolina to the Rangers before taking a close look at the series happening between the Canes and Islanders, and the Blues and Stars.

April 25: Year of the Upset
April 25 2019

On this episode, Ryan and Rory reflect on what was surely the craziest first round in the history of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Victims of the insanity include all three Canadian teams that made the big dance, so the boys do a postmortem on Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto, before taking a stab at what the summer months might bring for all three squads.

Then - undaunted by how foolish they looked in Round 1 - the guys lay out their Round 2 predictions, as the NHL's big tournament is down to eight teams.

This episode was produced and sound engineered by Shoaib Alli, and hosted by Rory Boylen and Ryan Dixon.
