Fascinating to see player evaluation
I stumbled upon this podcast by accident when it first came out and have been hooked and dialed in ever since. There is soooo much nfl draft coverage and to finally have in-depth comprehensive breakdown of NHL prospects is awesome. Especially with all the coverage they get on non-North American players I can’t watch outside of the world juniors. Keep up the great work!
It’s pretty good
This is by far most comprehensive, informed analysis of ever moving draft possibilities. I’d love to have dinner with these guys. Very knowledgeable and the same stuff gonna be coming out of Pierre Maguire’s mouth on Draft day ( whenever that is).
