Mike Traikos breaks down the 2019 playoff matchups. Would it be considered an upset if the Leafs were to beat the Bruins? Which Canadian team has the best shot to go the distance?

NHL trade deadline cometh

When will Connor McDavid reach his breaking point?

This week Paul Chapman and Mike Traikos look at Connor McDavid coming up second-best once again in a meeting with Sidney Crosby. In his fourth NHL season Crosby won the Stanley Cup, having made the final in his third year. In this, his fourth season, McDavid is falling further away from making the playoffs, his GM and coach have been fired and it’s fair to ask if McDavid will have the stomach for a full-blown, start-from-scratch rebuild. Will he want to leave the Oilers?
