THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 88
Player/Host Poll and Who wants to coach in the NHL?
Who wants to be an NHL coach these days? Not me. The coach firings continue as Gerard Gallant is fired from the Vegas Golden Knights. Brad Burud and Blake Friars discuss a recent players poll conducted by The Athletic. They give their take on the results and have their own questions to answer. Then they take a trip around the NHL and discuss a variety of topics including Rask, Andersson, Perrault, Sergachev, Hamilton, Crosby, Perry and Playoff Format.
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.
