The St. Louis Blues-Matthew Tkachuk trade that never was, Johnathan Toews’ uncertain future with the Chicago Blackhawks, no-tax states creating NHL salary cap disparity, and much more
First, Rob, Jesse, and Sara discuss the Calgary Flames trading Matthew Tkachuk to the Florida Panthers for Johnathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar, a prospect, and a pick, whether the NHL needs to address the growing salary cap disparity caused by low-to-no income tax states, Johnathan Toews’ thoughts on his future with the Chicago Blackhawks in an exclusive interview with The Athletic’s Mark Lazerus, the San Jose Sharks hiring David Quinn as their next head coach, and a Dustin Brown statue to be built outside Crypto.com Arena to go along with his Los Angeles Kings jersey retirement. Then, The Athletic’s own Jeremy Rutherford joins the show to talk about the Matthew Tkachuk-to-St. Louis Blues trade that never was, how Florida’s tax situation might’ve impacted his eventual trade to the Panthers, whether Flames GM Brad Treliving or Matthew Tkachuk himself ultimately made the trade happen, how the Blues offseason has gone so far, and more. Plus, the group wraps things up with some rapid fire questions about who the most intriguing free agent still available is, Jesse Puljujarvi staying in Edmonton with the Oilers on a 1-year deal, Nino Niederreiter taking a 2-year deal with the Nashville Predators, and well-wishes for Bobby Ryan.

First, Ian and guest cohost Sean Gentille make Hailey feel great about celebrating her “birthday week” this week and then they discuss Matthew Tkachuk getting traded from the Calgary Flames to the Florida Panthers for Johnathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar, a prospect, and a pick, the Huberdeau-Weegar media availability in Calgary this morning, Flames GM Brad Treliving turning a bad situation into a homerun, and more. Then, shifting gears to a much more serious topic, the group talks about Hockey Canada releasing its “Action Plan to address systemic issues in hockey and ensure greater safety and inclusiveness in and around Canada's game” in the wake of two separate sexual assault investigations currently underway allegedly involving Canadian national team and national junior team players, respectively. Plus, to close things out, Hailey and Sean discuss some of the Matthew Tkachuk trade proposals they received on Twitter before he was traded to the Panthers and they go over the most interesting points from The Athletic NHL’s early predictions for the 2022-23 season.
