The sports world stopped last week with many teams choosing not to play in protest of racial inequality. Jeff and Elliotte discuss how August 26th played out from the NHL’s perspective, the players coming together the following day in unity, the impact of the Hockey Diversity Alliance and the emotional message Ryan Reaves shared with the Hockey Night in Canada audience during his interview with long-time family friend Scott Oake.
The guys also chat about the extensive GM search in Florida, Pittsburgh trading for Kasperi Kapanen, what’s next for the Maple Leafs, the Coyotes losing draft picks, Montreal’s off-season and much more.
