Inside the ‘War-Room’ w/ Former NHL GM Dave Nonis
The guys welcome back regular contributor Dave Nonis to wrap a BUSY trade season. Nonis spoke on trade deadline, and the snowball of trades kicked-off by the New York Islanders and Lou Lamoriello. The former NHL GM gave an in-depth look at front offices and how they assess their needs, why ‘swinging for the fences’ with a big trade target doesn’t always work out, and how depth off-season additions are often more valuable.
In Headlines, the guys discuss the New York Rangers growing pains and Ray questions whether Kane and Panarin can rekindle the fire they had with the Blackhawks. A fan forcing the reporting of Ryan O’Reilly’s finger injury, McDavid’s chances of hitting 70 goals, and shake-ups made by the Golden Knights and Minnesota Wild are also covered.
What has made the Boston Bruins SO good this season?? Already atop the NHL standings, and riding a 10-game winning streak, the Bruins dominance is examined. Plus, assessing the ‘new era’ Vancouver Canucks under head coach Rick Tocchet.
Kris Abbott is in another timezone as part of his Betano duties, the guys dive into golf and The Player’s Championship odds. Dregs recounts his golf draft and a ‘dark-horse’ tip from Ray he hopes PAYS off. Plus, Max Homa’s twitter presence, and pro golfer’s showing their personality more than ever.
In Ask R+D, Ray is asked about NHLPA player reps, and which coach he wish he could’ve played for. Dregs speaks on his friendship with the polarizing Mike Keenan, and shares a legendary Scott Bowman story. The guys talk hockey people who they might not have always gotten along with, and Dregs talks curling courtesy of Ask R+D’s number one fan, Bryan Mudryk!
