Welcome to “2 Guys and a Goalie,” starring Dustin Nielson, Joaquin Gage, and Matt Kassian and presented by Odds Shark, Popeye’s Louisiana Chicken, and Sport Clips Haircuts. The show focuses on stories, notes, transactions, and everything else happening all around the NHL and the world of hockey.
It’s the last episode before the NHL trade deadline, and Tom Gazzola is in to fill in for Kass.
They hit all seven Canadian teams ahead of the deadline.
They discuss the issues with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and whether their lack of effort is what’s holding them back, and what they need to turn it around.
Popeyes Poll Question: Should Kyle Dubas be fired if the Leafs miss the playoffs?
Then discuss the Ottawa Senators and what they’ll sell off for assets like JP Pageau or Tyler Ennis and the Montreal Canadiens like Ilya Kovalchuk, Tomas Tatar, or Jeff Petry.
Scott Hastings from Odds Shark calls in to discuss the odds for Leon Draisaitl winning the Hart Trophy, who is the favourite, and the over/under for trades made on deadline day.
Dusty then hosts another edition of Family Feud: Top Five Players in Assists This Season.
They touch on the Dallas Stars and the Jamie Benn and Oliver Ekman-Larsson incident.
They discuss what the Vancouver Canucks will do after trading for Tyler Toffoli and losing Brock Boeser for the rest of the season, if Ken Holland has the ability to do anything for the Edmonton Oilers, what the Calgary Flames need to turn things around offensively, and whether the Winnipeg Jets will make anymore moves after trading for Dylan DeMelo.
