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 and Kass are finally back together in the studio!

The boys give their thoughts on Bo Horvat on being named captain of the Vancouver Canucks and how he’s matured as a young player in the NHL.

But they start things off starting about Milan Lucic and James Neal and how the trade is working out for both the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.

They then discuss the worst trades made by GMs that should’ve gotten them immediately fired.

They touch on the San Jose Sharks and re-signing Patrick Marleau.

This leads them into the Popeye’s Poll Question: Which start is most surprising?

  • San Jose (0-4)
  • Buffalo (3-0-1)
  • Carolina (4-0)
  • Oilers (3-0)

Kris Abbot from Odds Shark calls in to talk about some of the best betting trends around the NHL and to give his Best Bets for the weekend.

Kass and Gager go through the routine of preparing for an afternoon game.

Keep it or Clip it:

  • Pavel Bure is the best player in Canucks history.
  • The Ottawa Senators should tank hard.
  • Lucic will make the Flames for difficult to beat in the playoffs.
  • The @Winnipeg should trade for Mark Pysyk
  • Oscar Klefbom will be a 50-point D-man if healthy.
  • Fruit-by-the-Foot was the best snack to have in your lunch as a kid.
  • Friends was a garbage tv show.
  • The Montreal Canadiens are better off with Shea Weber than PK Subban.

And Gager closes the show talking up the Philadelphia Flyers’ Carter Hart and the best junior hockey goaltenders.
