– Which team is under the most pressure to advance past Round 1 of the post-season this year?
– Which non-playoff teams are we the most worried about long term? Which non-playoff teams are we the most optimistic about?
– The Florida Panthers’ Sam Bennett gets a one-game suspension for boarding the Lightning’s Blake Coleman. Justice served, or too short of a ban?
– Listener mailbag, including: is Jonathan Huberdeau the NHL’s most underrated player?
