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 Five, the boys chat about Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor finally signing, what the two-year term means for Laine’s future with the Winnipeg Jets, what the team should do, and how Laine and Connor will perform compared to the other RFA who signed this past off-season.

Gager and Kass start things off by telling some training camp stories, before Dusty surprises them with some delicious spicy chicken sandwiches courtesy of Popeye. This leads to them chatting about the spicy topic of Evander Kane getting ejected in the San Jose Sharks game against the Vegas Golden Knights and whether the ejection was justified.

Then they dove into the Popeyes Poll Question: Who will lead the NHL in goals?

Ovechkin, Matthews, Stamkos, Draisaitl or someone else?

This gets them into discussing who the greatest goal-scorer of all-time is, and then they touched on a few other things:

  • They touch on the new NHL/Green Day two year partnership and what sort of music was played in the dressing room when Kass and Gager were still there.
  • Dusty asks them what it’s like for a player to be placed on waivers.
  • Who will win the Hart Trophy
  • Who will win the Stanley Cup
  • Biggest story at the end of the season.
