There a new projected third-overall NHL draft pick
June 18 2018
The Athletic's Scott Wheeler joins Sat and Jawn to discuss the NHL Draft and defencemen. He believes the second d-man to come off the board will be Evan Bouchard or Noah Dobson though he likes Quinn Hughes more than both. Still, he predicts a team opts for one of the others sooner. He predicts Jesperi Kotkaniemi goes third since, after speaking with Filip Zadina at the combine, he's been ruled out for the top three. The Finn, he says, is perhaps the best centreman in the draft. "It's good odds Montreal takes the leap."
Fired up! Heated debate on Galchenyuk's merits and Bergevin's vision
June 18 2018
Sat and Jawn debate why Alex Galchenyuk was moved from Montreal and why he didn't find success with the Canadiens. Is he a centreman or not? They get into it before Sportsnet hockey analyst John Shannon weighs in as a sober third opinion and contemplate what more Marc Bergevin has up his sleeve, what the future holds for Max Pacioretty, and what assets they'll chase at the draft. What will Tampa Bay do? "Steve Yzerman is not telling anyone anything." Wherever you are, centremen are as in demand as puck-moving d-men.
What does the NBA off-season have in store for us? Plenty
June 15 2018
Kurt Helin with joins Sat shah and Joey Kenward to talk about trade chatter, including where LeBron may land if he takes off out of Cleveland and what's next for Kawhi Leonard after he apparently requesting a trade out of San Antonio. What an off-season we're in for. Does it all come down to the value of a shoe deal for the Spurs' shooter? "LeBron was only going to go there [San Antonio]... if you could pair the two of them."
Islanders pulling out all the stops to entice Tavares to stay
June 15 2018's Brian Compton joins Sat Shah and Joey Kenward on The Playbook to point out it would be "catastrophic" for the Islanders if John Tavares bails. It's likely he re-signs though not a slam dunk, and regardless, he owes it to himself to hear pitches from other teams. With the 11th and 12th picks in the draft, he expects the Islanders to pick up a no. 1 goalie and there is no reason they can't be a playoff team next year. "They need bigger pieces here, no doubt." Lou Lamoriello is also looking for a new coach. Barry Trotz? Sheldon Keefe? Dave Tippett? AV?
