THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 48
Buyers, Sellers, and the Bait
The NHL trade deadline is just six weeks away and its time to start the speculation and decisions on who are the sellers and who are the buyers. Brad Burud and Blake Friars breakdown what teams are prepared to sell off for assets and what teams are looking to add that special player that will help them make a strong Stanley Cup run. There is a strong group of players set to move teams and Brad and Blake discuss what teams would be the best fit for these players. Then its time to talk about a variety of NHL topics. The most prevalent is an epic rant that Brad Burud had about Nathan MacKinnon freaking out on his coach while on the bench. Brad did not like MacKinnon’s behavior and believe me he did not hold back. Then three questions takes center stage and a great listener question that Florida Panthers fans are not going to want to miss.
Blake Friars brings the Canadian approach to the show. The Bienfait, Saskatchewan native grew up playing hockey for 16 years. The goalie is also a long-time Roberto Luongo fan, and claims the Vancouver Canucks as his favorite team. Blake brings the millennial approach to the show. He is candid in his approach, and creates numerous laughs.
