Andrew Berkshire joins the show to help answer your mailbag questions.
We discuss the Flyers timeline for winning and the sizeable gap in age and readiness between their forwards and defensemen (1:08), Matt Murray’s legitimacy and how he stacks up against the other league’s best goalies (12:07), which GMs are currently in the hot seat (16:40), how the 7 Canadian teams stack up against each other both in terms of this coming season and beyond (29:33), the main storylines we’re keeping an eye on heading into 2017-18 (38:17), Nino Niederreiter vs. Mikael Granlund and whether the Wild can repeat their regular season success (44:31), what makes a good penalty killer and how much of it is dependant on the individual vs. the system (55:19), and which aging franchise players would be moved in an ideal world if teams were thinking with their heads instead of their hearts (1:01:41).
If you’d like to get in on the fun for a future episode, feel free to send your questions in on either Twitter or via email and we’ll try to get to them the next time we do a mailbag show.
