Episode 102 of the Hockey Free For All Podcast 04-28-20224

Hello hockey Fans out there, here is Episode 102 of the Hockey Free For All Podcast to take a listen to, discussions include-

#1. Why would Montreal even remotely be looking at 5 insurance policy goaltenders over the offseason as they have plenty of organizational talent?

#2. Samual Montembeau and Cayden Primeau are firmly in place and will hold the fort in Montreal as other internal talent develops.

#3. Is it not realized that NHL clubs can only have 50 players in their entire organization under contract at any given time, per the collective bargaining agreement?

#4. What 3 mistakes that Kent Hughes can’t afford to make this off season are people referring to? Kent hasn’t made a single mistake yet.

#5. Montreal has no need to target any free agent defensemen nor 5 specific defensemen in the upcoming offseason, and certainly do not need to add a veteran defenseman to the 3rd pairing. What part of Mike Matheson, David Savard, Johnathan Kovacevic, Arber Xhekaj, Kaiden Guhle, Jordan Harris, Jayden Struble, Logan Mailloux, David Reinbacher, Lane Hutson, Adam Enstrom and Wiiliam Trudeau is not being understood or is not clear. That’s 12 internal ready defensemen. You can only play 6. That’s a starting 6 X 2, hello!

#6. Is there just a lot of sentimental nostalgia in the air? There is no room to bring back Tyler Toffoli or Sean Monahan in Montreal. The team is moving on in its development and prospects are ready to take the roster spots.

#7. I hope that J.F. Houle and his staff return in 2024/2025, as they seem aligned with what NHL coaches want.

#8. The Buffalo Sabre’s wasted little time in naming Lindy Ruff as their new head coach.

#9. The San Jose Sharks have fired head Coach Dan Quinn and are looking for their head coach.

#10. The Winnipeg Jets and Colorado Avalanche series looks like its going to be a wild offensive series.

#11. Is any team, more unlucky, than the Dallas Stars are, as they once again get to face the Las Vegas Golden Knights?

#12. The Florida Panthers look to be in charge of their series with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

#13. Once again the Toronto Maple Leaf’s get to face their favorite nightmare by playing the Boston Bruins.

#14. The Vancouver Canucks and Nashville Predator series looks like the most even series in the opening round of the 2023/2024 playoffs.

#15. In the Washington/N.Y. Rangers series, the N.Y. Rangers clearly look like the fresher team.

#16. The Edmonton Oilers look like they have brought their A game against the L.A. Kings this year.

#17. In the Carolina Hurricane Vs. N.Y. Islanders series. It looks like the head coaches Rod Brind ‘ Amour and Patrick Roy have taken center stage.
