Really fun show for you today as we’re joined by friend of the show Graeme Nichols - better known to many as The 6th Sens - to take a look at a wild week across the NHL as free agency gets underway.
We’d love it if you’d take a second to leave us a rating and a review there inside your podcast app. It makes a big difference for us and just takes a moment. Come on… be a pal!
Lots to cover with Graeme including which local craft beers we’re sampling today, why the Toronto Blue Jays chose today to fire manager Charlie Montoyo, how the Columbus Blue Jackets stole the show on the first day of free agency, what the Detroit Red Wings are thinking, the Tampa Bay Lightning locking up everyone forever, the Edmonton Oilers adding Jack Campbell to their mix of former Leafs, the Colorado Avalanche doing a pretty nice job of keeping their squad together, whether Darcy Kuemper can help keep the Washington Capitals window open and plenty more.
And of course we later bring it back home to discuss the Ottawa Senators trading Matt Murray to the Toronto Maple Leafs and just what Kyle Dubas might be thinking, the Sens’ acquisitions of Alex DeBrincat and Claude Giroux,, the last time the nation’s capital has seen a buzz like this around their team and plenty more thoughts on both ends of the Battle of Ontario.
