In the ScuttlePuck NHL Hockey Podcast, irreverent Hockey Outsiders Mike Bonn and Dale Hoard give their less than expert opinions on all things hockey. Whether it's the National Hockey League, the International Ice Hockey Federation, Canadian Hockey League, NCAA or Minor Hockey, we give our take, from a fan's perspective. We focus mainly on NHL events and discussions but if there is a good hockey story to be told, we're on it!
Episode Bryan Hextall (367): Marc Bergevin Fired. Brendan Lemieux Bites. Literally.
A busy week with breaking news as we record that Marc Bergevin has been fired as GM of the Montreal Canadiens. Brendan Lemieux seems to be a chip off the old block as he bites Brady Tkachuk and enrages the hockey world. The Devils released third jerseys and the Canadian and USA Olympic teams released their uniforms as well.
Episode Bill Cook (366): NHL Leadership - Is It Time To Clean House?
McDavid scores another highlight reel goal. Despite some fans' early consternations, the Maple Leafs are the hottest team in the NHL. Penalties are down across the NHL and it has Mike shaking his head.
Episode Manny Legace (365): Do NHL Refs Hate McDavid and Why Is The Answer Yes? After 10+ Games Who's Hot and Who's Not?
Everyone, including John Tortorella, seems to be piling on McDavid for complaining about the refs, but is he really the one complaining and, if he is, does he have a point? After 10 games in we bring back the Who's Hot and Who's Not segment. As well, the DOPEs are back at it and we give our takes on a couple of suspensions.

Al Mitchell of TSN 1260 and lowetide.ca joins Mike to discuss the Oilers fast start and possible changes they may make. Why is Dave Tippett taking shots at analytics folks. And a reasonable take on the NHL's actions based on the report regarding the Kyle Beach alleged sexual assault.
Episode JC Tremblay (363): NHL Season - Some Hot Teams, Some Cold Teams. Does it Matter?
The Kraken are off to a slow start but their arena looks amazing. There remain some teams undefeated, including the Oilers, and others have yet to win and we discuss. Are Leafs fans overreacting to the team's mediocre start?
Episode Bob Kelly (362): Carl Landra of the 4th Line Podcast Returns. Connor McDavid Lights Up the Flames.
The Oilers are off to a good start on the shoulders of Connor McDavid. Carl Landra of the 4th Line Podcast tells about their Snides Retirement tour and preview the Central Division.
