NHL Free Agency

Happy 4th of July to our American listeners! 

Brenton is a wittle sickies this week, and so is his internet so our interview with Laura (@HildyMac) will be up later after we iron out the kinks.

But we're pushing through Brenton's plague, because he's a real character guy, to talk about John Tavares' Maple Leafs PJ's and how that affects the Leafs. We're also going team by team, for ALL 31 teams in the NHL to give an overview of what they did on Free Agency Day and how much they'll regret it going forward. On a scale of John Tavares to Jay Beagle, this episode is a real Calvin DeHaan!

Thanks for listening! Please find it in your hearts to rate & review on iTunes. You can find us at
