In the wake of Jiri Sekac being traded to the Anaheim Ducks, with Devante Smith-Pelly coming back to the Montreal Canadiens, Conor, Robyn, and I analyze what this means for the Canadiens going forward.

We also bring in our favourite guest from Season 1, Steve "Dangle" Glynn, to talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs' struggles, their recent run of trades, which goalie is better for the future, and what it would take for them to get back to respectability.

Arik Parnass also joined us to talk about his fantastic analytics piece on NHL.com, the future of analytics, the mainstreaming of them on the main site, and the overall acceptance of numbers in the game of hockey.

We wrap up by breaking down the unfortunate comment made by Morgan Rielly last week, his response to it all, and why confronting that kind of speech is important.
