S01E31: The Stanley What?

S01E31: The Stanley What?

Welcome to another episode of the William Nylander podcast! This week we talk about William Nylander’s success at World, the praise that William Nylander received from his Swedish teammates, and how happy William Nylander looks.

We also get a bit off-topic and talk the Marlies current playoff run, who our favourite players are, and who we think is most likely to make the jump to the Leafs next year. Also: the NHL still exists question mark?, the Voynov situation is trash but slightly less trash than it could be, and the Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association is formally established.

We’re back and so is Babcock! But we’re not lingering on that! Join us as we instead celebrate the Toronto Marlies sweeping their way through rounds one and two of the playoffs, learn about some new European prospects, and cheer for the only NHL team we’ve ever cared about. Also: everything is happening so much in women’s hockey, evaluating William Nylander’s taste in music, and Patty learns how to get down with the youth.

This week we start with the heartbreaking news that, after 12 years, the CWHL is ceasing operations. To quote the players, who came out with similar statements on social media following the official announcement, “it’s hard to remain optimistic #NoLeague”.

Also on the table this week: Tyler Ennis’ Masterton nomination, Auston “Beast Mode” Matthews, the coming rise of player tracking technology, and who should captain the Leafs.

S01E24: Jazz Hands

Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Toronto, where we lay our scene, from ancient coaching technique to new mutiny, Mike Babcock and Kyle Dubas are…. probably not actually in a blood feud. But hey, the media narrative did gave us a chance to butcher Shakespeare, and isn’t that what watching hockey’s really all about?

We also talk the NHLPA’s annual player poll, the Washington Capital’s upcoming visit to the White House, the tragicomedy of the Ottawa Senators, and Vegas’ new social media ventures.

S01E22: Please sir, can we have some Moore

This week, Babcock out Babcock’d Babcock in the most Babcockian way ever. Join us as we send our condolences to the 5’9” line (RIP, we hardly knew ya), Freddie (at least 60 starts is slightly less than last year, right?), and perennial third-line player William Nylander. We don’t actually threaten to fight Babcock, but we’re not gonna lie…. it was close.
