Episode 0172: 2020 Supplemental Draft (Not What You Think), Cehlarik Leaves Boston, NHL Return to Play Plan, Replacement C’s for Chara, Nash Playoff Woes, Kakko’s Return, Wheeler’s Tweet and More!

May 31st, 2020

Hockey is back!!  And that is the best thing about the NHL's Return to Play plan.  Mike and I break down what we like and do not like about this plan...here's a hint...the draft lottery is a mess!  But we start with a story from the Athletic where each of the 24 playoff teams are allowed to draft a player from one of the seven non-playoff teams.  Its clearly not going to happen, not real, but extremely entertaining and leads to a lot of discussion...especially with regard to snubs.  We talk about Peter Cehlarik leaving Boston and signing with Lugano.  He played 40 games in the NHL with 11 points, but felt that he was always waiting for the mistake that got him sent down.  We break down possible captains for the Bruins when Chara retires.  We respond to Larry Brooks' response to a question regarding Rick Nash's playoff woes in 2014 and discuss a current Ranger, Kaapo Kakko and his return to the Rangers.  Based on what John Davidson says, we have no idea what he is saying.  Finally, we present a tweet from Blake Wheeler regarding his home state of Minnesota and his feelings on what is happening to his home.  Give us a listen, its a little longer show than usual but full of opinion makers.  Thank you and Enjoy the Show!
