No Move Might Just be the Best Move

Listen to “The Instigator – Episode 25 – No Move Might Just be the Best Move” on Spreaker.

NHL Trade Deadline is a very fun day for NHL fans. Probably not the case for players or general managers. Why are fan bases upset when their favorite team does not make any moves. Do you understand the impact that has on a locker room? What is the likelihood that move works? What are you willing to give up? Is it worth one kick at the can (Stanley Cup)? Brad Burud gives his opinion on this controversial topic. Fans just don’t understand what all goes into making a big move.

Brad Treliving – Calgary Flames General Manager


Brad Burud the owner/editor of the Inside Edge Hockey News. I am a huge fan of hockey, from youth hockey, to junior hockey, and of course professional hockey. I have played, coached, worked as statistician, and watched hockey all of my life. Hockey is not just a game, it is a lifestyle and family. The game of hockey is great! It can bring you nights of great enjoyment. It also brings nights where you feel like your team will never win. I am proud to be a journalist for the greatest game in the world. I have a degree in Business Administration, Psychology from Minot State University. I also have a Hockey General Manager and Scouting, and Sports Communications/Journalism degree from Sports Management Worldwide. I am also a member of the Sports Executives Association. Most of all I am a fan. Hockey is a huge part of my life and my families life.
