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.

Dusty’s back with some stories, and souvenirs, from the Spengler Cup.

The boys discuss the Gold Medal victory for Team Canada at the World Juniors.

Popeyes Poll Question: Which of the Western Canadian teams is most likely to miss the playoffs?

  • Vancouver Canucks
  • Calgary Flames
  • Edmonton Oilers

Jeff Paterson from TSN 1040 calls in to talk about the Canucks, and how the play of Jakob Markstrom and their balanced scoring has lead to their 7-game winning streak, particularly the offseason acquisition of JT Miller, and if they need to make any deadline moves.

Keep It or Clip It:

  • If we handed out the GM of the Year award in Canada right now, it would go to Jim Benning.
  • The Maple Leafs are Canada’s best hope for a Stanley Cup.
  • January is the worst month of the year.
  • Kyle Connor is the most underrated player in Canada.
  • Turkey dinners should be a monthly event as opposed to just Christmas and Thanksgiving.
  • The Flames will be the biggest deadline day buyer in Canada.
  • Ilya Kovalchuk to the Montreal Canadiens makes a lot of sense.
  • The next Star Wars trilogy should be about Luke’s Jedi training centre.
