Pickleball 'King of the Hill' & Ottawa Senators Superstar, Tim Stützle

Tim Stützle joined the podcast, and it’s easy to see why he’s already a Sens fan-favourite! The budding superstar spoke on his torrid point pace, the young ‘core’ in Ottawa, and how he views the season thus far. He spoke on his journey from German pro-hockey to the NHL, pickle-ball battles with Claude Giroux, and the possibility of Ryan Reynolds joining the Senators ownership group. Plus, Stützle answers a couple fan questions, and says he’s 100% ‘Team Messi’ in the debate of soccer G.O.A.T’s. 

In Headlines, the guys discuss the Canes vs. Capitals Stadium Series, which Ray will be calling on ESPN this weekend. The New York Rangers are a hot-topic; the guys talk Tarasenko’s fit in New York, the Rangers 6-game ‘heater’, and assess their depth for another long playoff run. 

Ray & Dregs chew on how playoff ‘bubble’ teams might approach the trade deadline, and the frustrated Nashville Predators, where they go from here, and big contracts leaving little room for change. Plus, Ryan Reynolds and the Remington Group’s bid to purchase the Ottawa Senators.

Betano’s NHL futures, and prop bets, are examined as Kris Abbott joins the pod. Boston is heavily favoured in the President’s Trophy race, but Kris tells us why he’s putting wagers on teams like the Carolina Hurricanes. The Winnipeg Jets 34-to-1 Stanley Cup odds are examined as the team could be active in the trade market. Kris talks playoff strategy and why he’s banking on the Leafs losing… again.
