Episode 6 of Puck SKLS is here just in time for the playoffs! Except we’re a week late! We touch on how NBCSN sucks at covering hockey and all the dumb stuff they do. We talk old bags like the Bruins anthem singer and Ken Hitchcock, and discuss which NHL Head Coach is the biggest “unit.” Stick around for more Habs hate, and alternate universes where the Buffalo Sabres are good. We compare the NBA and the NHL, and talk about players who play Fortnite and give them some tips to get that elusive Victory Royale. Kok shoots his shot at the cute girl behind the Caps bench, and we wrap up with a playoff bracket for trivia! Soak it in and enjoy!
After a brief hiatus, we’re finally back on the attack with Episode 5 of Puck SKLS! Listen to an update of hockey news from the past month, a heartfelt discussion about the two girls with no cup retiring (the Sedins), how John Tavares makes everyone better, and Garth Snow does the opposite. Marc Bergevin, too. We talk weird hockey posters we had as a kid, how we enjoy reading the first paragraph of an Athletic article, and Eric Staal’s head size. Also, we cover NFL free agency and how Tom Brady likes a nice, tight end. We preview the best playoff series of this year, hockey field trips we want to go on, and wrap up the show with a Buffalo Sabres tank bracket for trivia. Enjoy!
The likes of players such as Carey Price are never seriously considered viable trade bait come the yearly NHL trade deadline, or at any other time of the year for that matter. However, the longtime Montreal Canadiens goaltender and stalwart as one of the world’s best could make a difference and be the final piece for a cup contender. And given the current situation in Montreal, it might be best for both the Habs and himself if he were moved now.
An NHL goaltender has the weight of the world on their shoulders. A good performance from a team’s goalie has the power to make or break a game, a responsibility felt in no other position in sports. To have good games here and there is one thing, but to be consistently exceptional is another— the goalies on this list have earned their spots in the ‘Top 5’ for being among the few who impress year after year.
