NEW is Always Better! NHL Teams to Watch + Improved R+D for Season 4!

Dregs packed up the ‘cabbage’ and booted summer to the curb, while Ray is still in ‘soccer dad’ mode, but ready for a new season! The NHL is BACK, and Ray Ferraro and Darren Dreger give you the goods in a NEW format for the Ray and Dregs Hockey Podcast. We’re taking a page out of Kellogg’s Raisin Bran and giving you double the SCOOPS, with TWO podcasts every week! 

In Episode 1, the guys breakdown all the teams to watch ahead of massive changes in NHL rosters this off-season. The Colorado Avalanche took some hits, Ray examines their goaltending, and which players need to step up with Nazem Kadri jumping over to the Calgary Flames. Of course, the Flames are amongst topics discussed, a huge roster overhaul makes them the most compelling team to watch this season. Also, the albatross Toews and Kane contracts, and their not-so-secret dissatisfaction with the direction of the Chicago Blackhawks. Plus, a fiery Maple Leafs Head Coach, Sheldon Keefe, has Ray recounting his playing days and tough coaching styles.

Kris Abbott brought a ‘Mediterranean’ flavour to the show after a jet-setting summer. He talks Aaron Judge on the cusp of history, the NFL’s wild and whacky start to the season, and much more, as the betting aficionado will be joining the pod regularly once again!

Ask R+D sees questions on the asking price of Jacob Chychrun, and how he’d look on the Ottawa Senators, Bo Horvat’s contract talks with the Canucks, and Ray’s preference to see a 3-2-1 point system in the NHL.
