THE DEBATE – Hockey Podcast | Episode 93
Playoff Positioning and Mr. 100
The NHL Playoff race is hotter than ever. Brad Burud and Blake Friars talk about some surprise teams making a push. They breakdown each division and will tell you who will get in and who will be headed to the golf course. They also have a little fun by making first round predictions if the playoffs started today. The Western Conference is frantic and the Eastern Conference seems to be pretty settled, but maybe not? Then Blake will rant about his Vancouver Canucks and their recent struggles….I talked him off the ledge! Then we talk about Mr 100 Leon Draisaitl and how the Arizona Coyotes have collapsed since acquiring superstar Taylor Hall. Is it his fault, maybe not. We wrap with some Florida Panthers talk a Trivia question and of course a fan favorite edition of 3 Questions.
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.
