Puck Daddy chats with “Goon” star Liev Schreiber…A lot at the Rick Nash trade market…The Carolina Hurricanes dubious record…Anaheim Ducks chasing history…A look at the NHL, ten years from now.


Actor Liev Schreiber in "Goon".

PUCK DADDY: Greg Wyshynski interviewed actor Liev Schreiber about his new movie, “Goon”. I haven’t seen the film, but judging by the trailer, Schreiber does a convincing job playing a veteran hockey enforcer.

OPENING FACEOFF: Justin Halbersma looks at the Rick Nash trade market, suggesting the San Jose Sharks would be the best destination. It’s rumored Nash doesn’t want to be dealt to another Western Conference team, but that hasn’t silenced media speculation which has the Sharks among the front-runners.

BACKHAND SHELF: Chris Lund on the Carolina Hurricanes dubious record of being the worst shootout team in history right now,  plus the Anaheim Ducks could be on the verge of becoming the first team in NHL history (since the current playoff format was adopted in 1993-94) to rally from 20 points out of a playoff berth by mid-season to making the post-season.

SHARK CIRCLE: Presents a look ahead at the NHL in 2022.
