Slewfoot 7.4 – The One About the New Season

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving and we’re thankful that it’s a new Season of NHL hockey and what a start of the regular season it has been so far! There’s been a few records, there’s been lots of scoring, and there’s been some unexpected teams performing above expectations!

On the show today we talk about the first couple of days of the season, who has performed well, and who needs some improvement. 

Well – the Golden Knights, Alex Ovechkin, the Leafs, The Blackhawks, Connor McDavid, the Devils, the Avs

Not so well – the Penguins, the Habs, the Sabres, the Predators

We get into some of the signings of some young players in the league and question if the trend of paying players before they perform is a good thing. Are teams overpaying these young athletes too much, too soon? Or are they considered an investment for these teams in the long run?

We get into one of our favorite games on the Slewfoot Hockey Show, “Yes Way, No Way” – we ask each other some questions and determine if we agree or disagree with certain statements.
