Ep.450: Breaking Down the Blockbuster

Thomas Drance joins the show to discuss Matthew Tkachuk going to the Panthers, Jonathan Huberdeau and Mackenzie Weegar going to the Flames, and and what’s next for both teams following their blockbuster trade. Topics include:

  • Why Matthew Tkachuk is such a unique player
  • What our expectations should be for his future scoring
  • How he’ll provide the Panthers with a different offensive element
  • The age bracket of Florida’s new core
  • Why they were comfortable trading Huberdeau and Weegar
  • Whether they have any cards left to play
  • The amount of leverage Calgary had in negotiations
  • What Darryl Sutter can get out of Huberdeau defensively
  • The reason Weegar is polarizing and how much of it is fair
  • How Calgary’s playing style is a great fit for both
  • The Flames loaded defense and potential combinations
  • What they can do next to add to their team
