Ever since the Montreal Canadiens lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game Five of the Stanley Cup Final, things have somehow gotten crazier around the organization. Season four of the podcast starts off with a bang.

Patrik Bexell, Jared Book and Anton Rasegård get together to talk about the big news of the last week or so (has it only been a week or so?) starting with Carey Price being left unprotected in the NHL Expansion Draft. They feel it was a calculated risk on both sides.

They also discuss the Shea Weber injury (and contract) situation, and whether David Poile will be feeling the pressure depending on Weber’s future and recapture penalties.

They also discuss Jonathan Drouin and the rest of the unprotected list, including Phillip Danault’s free agency. If they lose Danault, how does the team react?

Jared also gives his thoughts on Joël Bouchard’s departure from the organization and what it means for prospect development going forward.
