Jake Hahn Joins to Talk Some NHL Action, and Possible Trade Deadline Moves

We got Jake Hahn on the show today to talk show NHL with Mike and Matt. The boys go over:

-The situation in Toronto. The spot light is a little hotter in Toronto and with Jack Campbell hurt and not playing well recently, are the Maple Leafs going to panic? There are expectations for this team and at the bare minimum, a first round playoff win needed.

-Will Edmonton get past the first round. They, like Toronto, have 2 of the best players playing for their team. The problem is they have a GM that doesn't address their needs, and no Miko Koskinen is not the answer to their goaltending needs. Does Edmonton have a chance of making it out of the first round?

-What is going on in Vegas? Vegas has had the injury bug bad this year. It makes you wonder if they should just shut it down for the year considering how many injuries they have.

-Jack Eichel still not playoff bound? Jack is finally out of Buffalo and may still not taste the playoffs this year.

-Detroit's slow rebuild and Mo Seider gets our vote for rookie of the year. Stevie Y has done such a great job developing this team and Mo Seider is a big part of it. The Blackhawks can take a page out of their book and draft the proper players and develop them the way Detroit has. We think they could be competitive as soon as next season or the one after.

Be sure to give Jake a follow on his Twitter account if you haven't already. He does a great job co-hosting The Point w/Boomer on SiriusXM NHL Network Radio

I started playing hockey when I was about 7-8. I played goalie my whole minor hockey career . When I wasn’t on the ice I was out in the street or on playing inline hockey at a rink . I’ve goalie coached for 4 years now . I’ve been a hawks fans my whole life . My dad had season tickets when I was a kid . It’s one of my favorite memories, going to hawks games with my dad up in 320. After I graduated In 2005 , I got my own tickets and owned them till about 2012. It was awesome to see the team build a dynasty . I love talking hockey and hockey history . I hope you enjoy our podcast !!
