HTH pod ep 63. New Dads, West Conf Roundup

Bob and Dan are back from a long “sabbatical” and can’t wait to get back into talking hockey! We talk about our life changes, and adapting to our new role as a new dad and and expectant dad. Then, we dive into an exhaustive Western Conference round-up…which teams surprise us, which are overperforming, which are underperforming, and more! Bob and Dan disagree on whether the Vegas Golden Knights are for real, and just how much trouble the Minnesota Wild are in.

Bob and Dan discuss the Wild’s recent struggles, and whether fans should be worried about the Blackhawks re-taking the Central division. Then, the guys argue about whether the Wild are a ‘physical’ team…and what the heck does that even mean anyway. Plus, Mikael Granlund’s continued success, and THE MINNESOTA HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY TOURNAMENT!!

HTH pod ep 57 – Both guys, five minutes each for FIGHTING!!

Bob and Dan run down the hockey birthdays, then discuss Marco Scandella’s difficulties this year and spend way too much time comparing craft beer and hard cider. When the guys find their way out of the beer/cider tangent, they talk about their personalities and how that leads Bob to stick with analytics. This leads to a discussion of game score, and Bob’s recent post on hat trick game score leaders. Finally, they give a shout out to NHL ref Wes McCauley and his dramatic calls.

Bob and Dan talk about the NHL’s “Hockey is for Everyone” initiative, and why they are a little bit conflicted about whether it’s a real step toward inclusivity or just a PR campaign. Then, they discuss the firing of Ken Hitchcock and promotion of Mike Yeo, plus the call-up of Alex Tuch, Charlie Coyle’s struggles, Jason Zucker’s trash talk, and Mikael Granlund’s not wanting to talk about being moved from center to wing.
