As we all recover from laughing so hard at the Roast & Toast of Tomas Holmstrom and Nicklas Lidstrom, it's time to catch up on some contract updates across the NHL - starting with the Detroit Red Wings.

We begin by discussing Joe Veleno's new 1 year, $825,000 deal in Hockeytown, how Steve Yzerman and Derek Lalonde view Veleno's future in a crowded lineup (with players like Kasper, Danielson, & others looking to take his spot), what his ultimate ceiling is, & more (5:00).

Next, we discuss some massive contracts signed across the league, including Auston Matthews' 4 year, $13.25 million/year contract in Toronto, Brandon Hagel's contract in Tampa Bay, & more (15:30) - as well as how this affects teams like Edmonton with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl coming up.

After that, we take a look at the Detroit Red Wings pipeline and how their future stacks up against their divisional foes, led by the likes of Moritz Seider & Lucas Raymond (35:00) before giving a quick update on the Traverse City prospect tournament & who we're watching closely (Cossa? Doucet? Lombardi?) (47:50).

Finally, a quick note about the massively successful Jamie Daniels Foundation fundraiser (49:40) before we take your questions and comments during Overtime (53:15) - enjoy!
