The guys are back with some news to talk about. Unfortunately, they need to start with a serious topic in discussing Brendan Leipsic and the events that unfolded this week. Alex and Chace talk about what all of this means for him and the Washington Capitals. They look at it from and on-ice and also off-ice perspective.

Top NHL Compliance Buyout For Each Team

The guys are back and they only have two things of news to touch on. Both are Columbus Blue Jackets related as the guys take a look at the Joonas Korpisalo and Elvis Merzlikins deals that were signed last week. Alex and Chace give their thoughts on the deals and why Columbus is in a good spot with goaltending going forward. After that, they take a look at NHL Compliance buyouts. For this exercise, Alex and Chace looked at the best option for a compliance buyout. A compliance buyout is when a team buys out a player and pays him 2/3 of the remaining salary over double the length left. However, this buyout doesn't count towards the cap. These only usually happen when a new CBA comes into play or there is a massive change to the salary cap. With the uncertain circumstances of today, the guys thought it would be a fun idea to take a look at it. To make it a little more interesting, they had three trades to use. If a team did not have someone they needed to buy out, they could trade for another player from a different team. This team would give them assets for the player and in turn, could technically buy out two players.

Top 20 Goalies and NHL News

The guys are back to wrap up their best in the league lists. However, they actually have some NHL News to talk about. First off, they look at apair of signingsfrom the Blues. Locking down Marco Scandella and Sammy Blais to contracts. Alex and Chace give their thoughts on that and what it may mean for Alex Pietrangelo. Next, they look at Andrei Markov and his retirement to hockey, talking about what he meant to the game and what they will remember him for. Finally, the look at the Dustin Byfuglien contract termination. What it means for both sides and how it will affect both parties going forward. After the NHL News, they switch to the top 10 goalies. They did the Top 20 Defencemen already, now they move to the position behind them. Alex and Chace discuss what went into their criteria for ranking goalies and try to decide how much one year means when ranking them. Tune in for all of this and more, with the MnM Hockey Podcast!

Top 20 Goalies and NHL News

Top 20 NHL Defencemen

The guys are back with another week of content! Last week, they looked at the top 20 NHL wingers. Now, they are back to look at the Top 20 NHL defencemen. This was the hardest list for both Alex and Chace to create. Mostly because there are so many different things that can go into evaluating a defenceman. Eye test, different statistics, and more. This is by far the most different their lists have been up to this point. As always, they start with some honourable mentions. People who just missed the cut but very well could be here on next year's list. Next, they look at 20-15, where there are some similarities. Alex favours a certain type of player more than Chace does. However, as the list goes on, Alex has some players much lower than Chace has them ranked. The biggest question per usual is, how much of this season should be taken into account vs the past two seasons? Alex and Chace debate it and explain why they have some guys so much higher or so much lower. Tune in for all of this and more, with the MnM Hockey Podcast!

Top 20 NHL Defencemen

Top 20 NHL Wingers

The guys are back with another week of social distancing as COVID-19 continues to impact everything that happens. Today, they take a look at the top 20 NHL wingers in the league. Trying to take into account this season as well as prior season results to determine who makes the top 20 for best wingers currently. Both Alex and Chace take a statistical approach to determining it. However, one uses priors more than the other. With so many great wingers in the NHL, the guys find it tough to narrow it down to just 20. Alex even forgets a name or two along the way and realizes he may need to reorganize his list. Who do you think are the leagues best wingers? Is it Taylor Hall, Mark Stone, Nikita Kucherov, or Artemi Panarin? Or is it someone else? Let the guys know here or on Twitter. Make sure to tune in for all of their top 20 and see if you agree or disagree with what they have. Listen for all of this and more, with the MnM Hockey Podcast!

Metropolitan Division Breakdown and NHL News

Alex and Chace are back with a surprisingly busy week. The guys have a lot to talk about this week, including a bunch of Metropolitan division talk. They start by discussing the unfortunate Johnny Boychuk news. This leads to a discussion about whether or not facemasks will become mandatory in the future. After that, they take a look at how the Metropolitan Division standings have drastically been changing lately. Looking at teams that have been on hot streaks, and lots of teams on cold streaks. Alex asks if one Metro heavyweight should be considered as such. The guys also took a look at the General Manager meetings. They start by discussing the decision to leave the emergency backup situation as is. As well as discussing a potential offside rule change that could make things like video review much easier. Finally, they take a look at the new possible salary cap and where they think it will land. They also discuss why they wouldn't be shocked if the rumoured numbers are too high.
