Jonathan Willis joins the show to discuss the teams that figure to make the most noise during what promises to be a busy draft weekend filled with lots of player movement. We discuss the teams that have already been making moves, the teams that have moves left to make, and the different stages of an organization’s cyclical ascent from rebuild to contending. Topics include:
4:00 How the Jets backed themselves into a corner
13:30 How the Avalanche and Hurricanes take the next step
22:00 How the Rangers rebuilt in 18 months
29:15 How the Sharks keep contending
45:20 How the Flyers blew through their cash
48:30 How many teams think they’re the next Blues
