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.
Gager is still soaking up the sun in Mexico, but Tom Gazzola is in to fill the crease!
They get things started talking about Leon Draisaitl’s amazing October performance and what it means for the Edmonton Oilers.
This takes them right into the Popeyes Poll Question: Where would you have Draisaitl ranked in the NHL?
- Top 3
- Top 5
- Top 10
- Top 20
They get into Alex Ovechkin’s comments regarding the Toronto Maple Leafs “only playing for themselves” and then beating them in OT.
This gets them into a discussing toughness around the modern NHL and if it can still play a role.
They talk about the Dustin Byfuglien situation and what his ankle surgery means for the Winnipeg Jets.
Kris Abbott from Odds Shark calls in to give some of his best NHL bets, including Draisaitl’s odds for winning the Hart Trophy, betting on teams in the Pacific Division, and the best strategy for riding a team for profit.
They talk about Taylor Hall’s comments on being booed by the New Jersey Devils fans, and whether he’ll stay there after this season.
Kass tells some stories from his Junior days, and they compare the Sonny Milano and Andrei Svechnikov goals.
They finish off the show with another round of Keep It or Clip It:
- Putting Halloween decorations on October 1st is too early.
- Scary movies are great.
- Draisaitl would be a 90-point player even without playing with Connor McDavid.
- Elias Petterson will hit 100 points this season.
- Ovechkin’s comments will be the turning point for the Maple Leafs.
- The Jets should just move on from Byfuglien.
- Carey Price is a top-3 goaltender in the NHL.
- Full chocolate bars as Halloween candy is overkill.
