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.

Kass is away, but no fear, Tom Gazzola is here!

The boys start things off breaking down the Edmonton Oilers’ 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators, and the idea of “playing down” to opponents.

They discuss Ken Holland’s comments regarding Chris Chelios and Johan Franzen’s accusations towards Mike Babcock, and if the NHL Code of Conduct needs revamping.

Scott Hastings from Odds Shark calls in to talk about the trend of the higher over/unders, and the best odds for which team Taylor Hall will be traded to, and other bets around the NHL.

And then they get into the Popeyes Poll Question: Which team should trade for Taylor Hall?

  • Arizona Coyotes
  • Dallas Stars
  • Colorado Avalanche
  • @St. Louis Blues

They then discuss Auston Matthews admitting that the Toronto Maple Leafs “quit” during their 6-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

And whether things will finally turn around for the Calgary Flames this season.

Finally, they play another round of Keep It or Clip It:

  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will make less than $6 million on his next deal.
  • It’s okay to kiss randoms if it’s under the mistletoe during the holidays.
  • David Pastrnak will score 60 goals this season.
  • The Winnipeg Jets are Canada’s best hope for a Stanley Cup this year.
  • Cousin Eddie is the best character in Christmas Vacation.
  • If you were to become GM, the Vancouver Canucks job is more attractive than the Leafs job.
  • Eggnog is overrated.
  • It’s an excited time to be an Ottawa Senators fan.
