NHL: Vegas Golden Knights at Nashville Predators Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Robby Stanley, writer for covering the Predators, stopped by to talk about the Predators, including recapping the shootout loss to Vegas and the "clapgate" media storm. We also talk a lot about how we see the Central division shaking out, plus a tangent on a new NHL team in Seattle.

In this episode:

  • Viktor Arvidsson, scorer of all types of goals
  • We somehow did not talk about the Preds defense, except we sort of did because Robby mentioned Ryan Ellis
  • Alex has a brief debate with himself about what a Twitter joke is.
  • Robby thinks Chicago is just not very good. Alex agrees.
  • First round match-up with Winnipeg? Nope nope nope.
  • Terry Crisp + dogs + the Alberta landcape
  • Edmonton to the Central Division?!??????!!?!?!?
