The NHL Pre-Season Grinds On + Interview with Habs GM Kent Hughes


The guys discuss the latest NHL headlines from around the league including the massive hit and resulting injury to Trevor Zegras last night and debate whether players watching in the pressbox should be able to be inserted during games to cover off injured players - instead of what currently happens where forwards play D.

Montreal Canadiens GM Kent Hughes joins Ray and Darren and talks how he got the gig, his working relationship with Jeff Gorton, the positive vibes around the team now, his unconventional hiring of 'bantam coach' Marty St-Louis, how the evaluation process worked out on them ultimately choosing to draft Juraj Slafkovsky first overall, and much more.

Kris Abbott stops by and chats about being at the Dome for the special moment of Judge's 61st homer last night and talks early NHL Stanley Cup and Hart Tropy winner odds. The guys wrap up make their first 'game of the week ' picks on the Rams v. 49ers match-up. And yeah, we'll be keeping score and seeing who is the real soothsayer in this crew.
