The Hockey Guys Podcast: Episode 15 – Flyers, Oilers and Dirty Hits
In Episode 15 of The Hockey Guys Podcast Co-Host Hunter Crowther couldn’t join his partner in crime James (@J_Habs) but he’ll be back next week. Filling in for Hunter is The Hockey Guys owner Dustin Leed (@D_Leed) who joins James as guest Co-Host. The duo takes an in-depth look at the Flyers, what needs to be done to turn the ship around, and who is really behind the wheel?
Dustin & James also tackle the hot topic surrounding dirty hits in the NHL, and what can be done? Patrick Kaleta will find no love on this podcast as he’s highlighted as a prime example of why the punishment for brutal hits needs to be more severe.
Other Topics of discussion in the fifteenth episode:
- Buffalo Sabres & their current management staff – with such a large overhaul trading Pominville last season, should the Sabres follow through and replace Darcy Regier with a new face who can rebuild a team?
- Dirty Hits – James & Dustin propose a few new ideas on how to eliminate dirty hits from the NHL.
- Edmonton Oilers & Nail Yakupov – Should the Oilers trade the former first overall pick and succumb to the Social Media chaos or stand pat and let the young forward develop?
- Surprises of the NHL – While Dustin is once again amazed by the human highlight reel that is Sidney Crosby, James marvels over the impressive start that Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl has had.
