Jan 30, 2024

WWP Night at the LCA (in partnership with the Detroit Red Wings) tickets - first 400 ticket buyers get a co-branded Red Wings x WWP hat!

It's been an emotional sports weekend between the Detroit Red Wings, Grand Rapids Griffins/Flying Toasters, and the Detroit Lions...thankfully, we're a hockey podcast.

Tune in as we discuss how Derek Lalonde's Detroit Red Wings have turned their season around in January and retaken a playoff spot while battling with the Leafs and Lightning, keeping the likes of the Islanders, Devils, Penguins, & others behind (5:05). Next, a recap of their win against Philadelphia, including Lyon's shutout, Larkin, Copp, & Seider scoring, Copp's "Rasmussen vibes" about his 100th goal, Klim Kostin stepping up, & more (8:10). Next, Hockeytown's win over the Vegas Golden Knights, including Larkin's 200th goal & 11 game point streak, Veleno, Walman, Fischer & Copp, Lucas Raymond, & others stepping in for yet another Lyon win, as well as schedule updates (Ottawa ahead) and a note on Patrick Kane (13:45).

After that, a conversation on how some analytics represent Moritz Seider, whether they fairly represent his game, how the counting stats might affect his negotiations with Steve Yzerman, & more (25:40), as well as a discussion on whether Andrew Copp has revitalized his game (33:45).

We also discuss WWP Night with the Grand Rapids Griffins, a quick recap of the weekend's festivities, the Flying Toasters jersey, thoughts on Ville Husso, Jonatan Berggren, Marco Kasper, Albert Johansson, & Simon Edvinsson, Edvinsson fighting & what he said to us after, & LOTS more (35:05). 

Next, NHL news including Gallagher's awful hit on Pelech & Parros' Department of Player Safety giving him a 5 game suspension, differing opinions on shiny helmets, Red Wings trade rumors re: Vatrano and Chychrun, & more (51:30) before we take your questions and comments during our Overtime segment (1:01:45) - enjoy!
