Love this!

Rachel is one of my favorite hockey personalities and brilliant minds in hockey. They have a great dynamic and the way they attack topics and evaluating teams and players is just phenomenal.

Good Analysis

Rachel is far smarter than Mikey and he admits as much so she certainly carries the show. Ian has a little more gravitas but he clearly was also along did the ride as Rachel was the brains and grit behind the show. Clearly very Leafs and Canadian centric but as someone who grew up following other sports I find this helps increase my knowledge of hockey. Rachel worked in Devils front office and knows some of the dirty secrets of the organization. My only two complaints with this show and both hosts overuse the word “literally.” The other is too much talk about what is on Twitter. There a few of us who aren’t on twitter and don’t really care what is trending or what someone tweeted the other day. Not unique to this podcast though as many podcasts seem to spend too much time talking about what is on twitter while complaining about it at the same time.

Stay away from politics

Ok insight, passion. When they are so off on hot takes on a team I follow closely (Rangers) I wonder how off they are with the rest of the league. K’Andre Miller was burdened playing with a racist? Really?
