Bobby Ryan calls in, Pierre-Luc Dubois-Patrick Laine blockbuster trade, Multiple Choice Madness, the Hailbag returns, and more
First, Ian and Hailey break down the blockbuster trade between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Winnipeg Jets that sent disgruntled center Pierre-Luc Dubois to the Jets, returning Finnish sniper Patrick Laine and Jack Roslovic to the Jackets, Alexis Lafrenière’s slow start in the Big Apple, the Flames having a strange, five day break after playing just three games, and more.
Then, Detroit Red Wings forward Bobby Ryan joins the show to discuss his record-setting start with the team, how having a couple hundred fans in the building makes a huge difference for the vibe on the ice as opposed to playing in an empty arena, semi-bubble life on the road as the Wings prepare for four straight games at the Dallas Stars, his golf game, getting breakfast at the Boot & Blade during his time with Owen Sound Attack, and more.
Plus, to close things out, Ian and Hailey run through a series of Multiple Choice Madness questions and Hailey answers listener questions in another installment of the Hailbag.
