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 Sports Clips Haircuts. The show focuses on stories, notes, transactions, and everything else happening all around the NHL and the world of hockey.
For episode four, the boys discuss a notorious record that Gager owns courtesy of a former Winnipeg Jet; Stanley Cup odds for the Jets and how that might be effected by the uncertainty of their roster at the moment.
But, they start the episode off discussing the Auston Matthews incident, and how that it might effect his bid for captaincy of the Toronto Maple Leafs
That leads them right into the Popeyes Poll Question: Who should be the next Toronto Maple Leafs captain, Auston Matthews, John Tavares, Morgan Rielly?
They discuss Matthew Tkachuk’s new bridge deal and what it mean for the Calgary Flames.
Kris Abbott from Odds Shark calls in to get into some Stanley Cup, and gets into how the Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor holdouts, and the Dustin Byfuglien question might be effecting their chances.
The boys also discuss other moves the Jets have made over the offseason, and how Connor Hellebuyck might struggle with the loss of Byfuglien and Tyler Myers.
They then get into some top ten lists. Dusty lists his “Top 10 Players You’d Pay to Watch,” Gager does “Top 10 Cable Guy Requirements for Customers, while Kass mails it in with a Top 5. But, it’s a topic so unique that you’ll have to see it for yourself…
Then the boys to the first edition of a new segment, “Keep it or Clip it?” presented by Sports Clips. Dusty poses a question about each Canadian team and Gager and Kass either agree (Keep it) or disagree (Clip it):
- Elias Petterson finishes as a Top 10 scorer
- Patrik Laine will no longer be on the Winnipeg Jets this time next week
- You’d have Mitch Marner over Auston Matthews
- Goaltending be the reason the Edmonton Oilers miss the playoffs
- Thomas Chabot will lead the Ottawa Senators in scoring
- Mark Giordano will be a Norris Trophy finalist
- Carey Price will win the Vezina Trophy
