Welcome to the latest edition of WIIM Radio! Skeleton crew for this one as it’s just me and Sara holding it down. Here’s what we got up to.
The outlook for the rest of the season: We help assuage everybody’s concerns that a winning steak similar to last season’s is going to make much of a difference with just 31 games left and 13 standings points to make up, but first we have to, you know, actually win games.
Trade deadline speculation: Honestly not a lot to get excited about with this year’s trade deadline, but you never can tell with Steve Yzerman running the show nowadays. Will we see any midnight wheelings and dealings?
The All Star Game: It’s become more fashionable in the last few years to loudly proclaim a disinterest or even flat-out disdain for the ASG, but we got to the heart of why so many hockey fans would rather spend the time gardening (or simply just not paying attention to hockey).
Reader Questions: All the puntential of the Seattle team name rumors and a look at strengths & weaknesses in the depth chart. Plus, we take a look back at the goaltending performance OF THE DECADE.
Around the league: Wanna know the three teams we hate the least out of the ten-best squads in the NHL? Sure you do!
