Ray’s feeling like a ‘Rockstar’ after seeing Post Malone live in-concert with his boys, but it was another celebrity making noise in the hockey world this week. Ray and Dregs kick things off talking Deadpool aka. Ryan Reynolds and the hype surrounding his interest in buying the Ottawa Senators.
The Boston Bruins signing, and subsequent un-signing, of Malcolm Miller has been a mess from start-to-finish: NHLPA ramifications, lack of foresight for the victim, and the onus of responsibility needed from Miller’s parents are discussed. On the ice, the Bruins are rolling, while their most-recent opponent is not. The St. Louis Blues are now on a 7-game slide, the guys ponder if there’s a disconnect between the team and coaches, and talk star players needing to step into their roles.
Western Canadian teams are all taking some L’s recently. Edmonton Oilers’ penalty killing, and Calgary Flames’ growing pains are amongst reasons for concern in those markets. However, the Vancouver Canucks issues seem to be reaching a boiling point. Canucks President, Jim Rutherford’s thinly veiled comments at Head Coach Bruce Boudreau, along with captain Bo Horvat’s pending UFA status, and a lacklustre record; might just spell the end for this core. The guys examine whether or not a rebuild could be coming on the Westcoast.
Kris Abbott has his voice back and is using it to shed light on the “1” blemish on Ray’s 5-1 NFL picks record. He recounts a rollercoaster of emotion as he came oh-so-close to hitting his first-half Bills/Jets bet. Kris shifts focus to the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and betting on their shaky goaltending to yield a return for his pocketbook.
Ask R+D sees questions on the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals ahead of Ovy and Sid’s 63rd regular season battle, McDavid’s ever-growing spotlight overshadowing other stars, and Ray’s eclectic taste in music; from Kenny G to Posty!
