Hello hockey fans out there, here is Episode 106 of the Hockey Free For All Podcast to get your hockey fix, discussions include-

#1. The Montreal Canadiens do not need Trevor Zegras, Joel Farabee’s or Pierre Luc Dubois, stop with the insanity.

#2. These proposed trades with Anaheim, Philadelphia and L.A. would strengthen these club and not weaken the Montreal Canadiens but would saddle them with horrendously bad contracts for years, strapping the club financially.

#3. Why would Montreal tear down their rebuild, deplete their prospect pool and destroy their roster, these trades have no upside to any of them.

 #4. Montreal acquired Kirby Dach and Alex Newhook for the specific reasons such as size, speed and versatility.

#5. Montreal NHL roster players to trade should be Josh Anderson, Joel Armia, Christian Dvorak, Jake Evens, Brendan Gallagher, Rafael Harvey-Pinard, David Savard and Jesse Ylonen.

#6. Laval AHL players to trade should be Justin Barron, Miguel Tourigny, Joe Vrbetic, Ty Smilanic, Mitchell Stephens, Philippe Maillet and Brady Keeper.

#7. Only prospects Sam Harris, Oliver Kapanen, Jack Smith, Alexander Gordin, Fillip Eriksson, Luke Mittelstadt, Petteri Nurmi, Blake Biondi, Mattias Norlander and Jacob Olofsson. The Jury remains out on prospects such as Rhett Pitlick, Vinzenz Rohrer, Xavier Simoneau, Jacob Perreault, Riley Kidney, Luke Tuch, Cedrick Guindon, Arnaud Durandeau, Quentin Miller, Emmett Croteau, Dmitri Kostenko and Daniil Sobolev should be even considered.

#8. In playoff news. The Florida Panthers are for real, have come to play, and are all in.

#9. The Edmonton Oilers/Dallas Stars might just be the more competitive series to watch.

#10. The Ottawa Senators have hired Rob DiMaio as their new Director of Player Personnel.

#11. The Tampa Bay Lightning have reacquired defenseman Ryan McDonagh from the Nashville Predators.

#12. The Toronto Maple leaf’s new head coach Craig Berube is laying the ground work and baseline expectations for the players and has been very vocal since being hired.

#13. Insanity and stupidity continue to create Arber Xhekaj trade rumors relentlessly. Don’t do it, or Montreal will not when the Stanley Cup again for at least another 25 -years plus. Would not even trade Arber Xhekaj straight up for Connor McDavid.

#14. Stanley Cups foundations of Dynasty clubs are built on players like Arber Xhekaj, and that is why 31 other clubs want to obtain him so badly. If anyone thought trading Patrick Roy, Ryan McDonagh, John LeClair, or when Guy Lafleur left, cost Montreal Stanley Cup Championships, trading Arber Xhekaj will haunt the organization and its fans 10-fold, compared to all those other moves combined.

#15. Sheldon Keefe has been hired as the new head coach of the New Jersey Devil’s.

#16. Vancouver Canucks head coach Rick Tocchet wins Jack Adam’s trophy as head coach of the year.
