Tall Can Sports 107: Things I Think I Know

y a piece by the incomparable Steve Dangle, the boys take a look back on one of the worst trades in Maple Leafs history and how it could have cost them... Eric Lindros.... or Scott Neidermayer ... or Pat Falloon....

How does Neids as a Leaf change their historical timeline? And if you had it to do all over, knowing everything you know now, who would you select with the first pick in that draft? The 5 years of complete dominance that Lindros brings? Or the nearly 20 years of steady reliability that Neidermayer brought? It's not as cut and dried as you'd think?

Tall Can Sports 95: Needs More Rod

The Hockey Hall of Fame has just completed one of their more fascinating induction weekends in recent memory so Rob & Matt figured they'd better pick it apart for you. 

In his prime Eric Lindros was the most dominant player in the NHL but due to injuries and disputes with management he was never quite viewed alongside the all-time greats like maybe he could have been. Was it fair for #88 to have to wait so long to get in?

Were the men that he went in with worthy in general of ever being Hall of Famers?  And is an out of touch selection committee even capable of properly selecting Women in to the Hall after another year goes by with no women recognized?

Lots to discuss on the heels of Hall of Fame weekend.
