Corey Sznajder writer for The Athletic-Chicago and purveyor of three zone hockey stats, joined me to talk about the Blackhawks troubles, the Dion Phaneuf trade to the Kings, and of course the Predators.

Inside, we discuss:

  • Is this the end for the Blackhawks?
  • Why did the Kings trade for Dion Phaneuf??
  • The next contract for Noah Hanifin (or will he be traded??)
  • Corey gives some insight into what the underlying metrics say about Rick Nash (and whether he would really fit in for the Preds)
  • How can the Preds get more high danger shots? Not sure we solved this one.
  • P.K. Subban, Roman Josi and the glory of having such a great defense core.
  • The team to worry about? The Jets.

There’s a lot more too. It was a good episode, you should check it out.

Thanks for listening.
