The Hockey Show - Episode 249

The Hockey Show returns to the glorious airwaves, streams through the internet, and broadcasts via the UMFM app tonight at 5:30pm, and Beans and I have a lot to go through. The NHL Entry Draft happened, there were some trades made, there are some free agents looking for teams, and there's a pretty special day happening this weekend. It's some sort of birthday or anniversary or something? You may have heard about it through the news or social media or friends, but apparently this amazing country we call home is set to celebrate its 150th anniversary! We'll go over some of the stuff you can experience here in our great city and surrounding communities on July 1!

Teebz and Beans will give their thoughts on the Chicago trades that saw Artemi Panarin and Niklas Hjalmarsson find new homes while Brandon Saad returns to the Windy City. There will be some discussion on Arizona beefing up with Hjalmarsson, and the additions of Derek Stepan and Antti Raanta. Marc Methot will take his services to Dallas, and the gents will weigh in on that team's fortunes. Pittsburgh acquires some muscle in Ryan Reaves, prompting many to question why they would make this deal. There was a Swiss-born player taken first-overall, a Winnipegger taken second-overall, and whole bunch of other players taken after them, and we'll break down who did well at the NHL Entry Draft. Benoit Pouliot and Antti Niemi got bought out, Connor McDavid found the key to the Oilers' money vault, and there are a ton of names that will move to free agency to see what riches await them. And then we'll look at everything happening around this province for Canada's sesquicentennial anniversary, and we'll even dip our toe into the quiet town of Letterkenny!
