Tape to Tape NHL Podcast: Looking at teams and prospects at the Memorial Cup

On this week’s show, Ryan and Rory are joined by Sam Cosentino to preview the 99th Memorial Cup from Windsor, Ont. The guys talk about Gabe Vilardi, the top 2017 NHL Draft-eligible prospect at the event, as well as 2018 Draft prospect Joe Veleno.

From there, Sam discusses some of the best-known drafted players in the Memorial Cup, including Mikhail Sergachev, Mathew Barzal and Dylan Strome, and how evenly matched each of the teams are.

Finally, Ryan and Rory discuss the latest from the Stanley Cup Playoffs: which goalie should the Penguins turn to in Game 4? Is the 1-3-1 boring hockey? And more.
