As promised, we have returned for a second episode.


Rob and Sam are back to serenade you with their dulcet tones and hockey talk.

There's injury news to discuss and there are battles taking shape among players looking for spots – plus, what's up with some of the guys on the roster bubble?

An injury to defenseman Ryan Murray is going to allow a young player or two to step up in his spot, giving the team plenty to ponder about its blueline.

We talk about new San Jose Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson and how that trade may affect other NHL trades throughout the year. Dallas Stars center Tyler Seguin signed a new deal and we talk about how it may usher in a standard for others (maybe Artemi Panarin?). Finally, when talking about the NHL we talk about how stinkin' weird it is that Henrik Zetterberg has retired and that Red Wings dynasty and its remnants are gone.

Kyle is back to give us three more hot takes and he also discusses how his dog got its name from a certain Florida hockey player. We end with a solid "ask us anything" segment that made us hungry for a late night snack.
