Episode 31: Ken Hitchcock & Firing Goalies into the Sun

On this episode, Felix, Nick, and Joe discuss the St. Louis Blues decision to fire coach Ken Hitchcock, how much better (or worse) things will be with Mike Yeo at the helm, and whether or not the Blues can salvage this season. The guys also discuss the possibility of trading defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, whether or not the Blues rebuild has already started, and firing Jake Allen into the sun. Plus, the boys talk about why Cam Fowler isn’t untouchable for the Anaheim Ducks, how the rebuilding process is different for franchises like Toronto and Chicago versus Arizona, what the Tampa Bay Lightning have learned bout their roster, the outlook for the LA Kings, and how valuable puck-moving goaltenders really are. Finally, Felix gives us a glimpse into his collegiate roller hockey career, Joe thinks Brian Elliott is a headcase, and Nick waxes poetic about the Chicago Blackhawks.
