Corey Pronman, hockey prospects writer for The Athletic, joined me for some insight into some Predators prospects, including the much anticipated Eeli Tolvanen. ICYMI, The Athletic is reporting that Tolvanen will be joining the Predators for the stretch run, which is awesome news!

In this episode:

  • What makes Tolvanen such a great prospect (and why did he fall so far in the draft)
  • This quote stuck out to me: “[Tolvanen’s] shot is top 10-15 in the NHL from the first day he steps into the league.”
  • Is it worth burning a year on his ELC?
  • Power play help from #goalvanen!
  • Dante Fabbro—where might he fit and what’s his ETA?
  • Alex Carrier—possibly replacement for bottom pairing defensemen during the stretch run?
  • What is most exciting about Patrick Harper?
  • The challenges of ranking prospects, given all the different factors to consider.

And more, of course. Give it a listen!
