THW Podcast – Ep. 16 – Maple Leafs, Blues, and NHL News

On the 16th episode of The Hockey Writers Podcast, Brandon Share-Cohen stops in to chat the news of the week in the NHL and we take a few minutes with The Old Prof and Stephen Ground to talk Toronto Maple Leafs and St. Louis Blues respectively.

Don’t miss as each walks us through what to expect with a couple contenders as they finish off the regular season.

On This Week’s THW Podcast

We start by visiting with regular guest Brandon Share-Cohen to talk all things NHL news including a couple of NHL extensions and some key injuries to playoff teams.

Jimmy Howard re-signs in Detroit while Nic Petan gets another two years in Toronto. In not-so-good news, the Islanders and Lightning are dealing with a couple key players being injured. Will it matter?

We then visit with The Old Prof who wrote two articles on The Hockey Writers recently. One was in regard to Garret Sparks essentially calling out the Maple Leafs after some disappointing play and the other about two names that might be leaving the team, Jake Gardiner and Connor Brown.

Finally, we chat with Stephen Ground who helps explain the turnaround in St. Louis where the Blues are one of the hotter teams in the NHL. After a dismal start to the season, that franchise has turned things around and are now a playoff contender in the Western Conference.

Are the Blues good enough to take a real run? Will there still be changes? Is their goaltending suspect? Stephen helps answer all of those questions.
