All is right in the State of Hockey. Minnesota continued their winning ways on the road, their prospects did well in the World Junior Championships, and a couple of those prospects brought home the Gold for Team USA. With such a big week, we had to get an equally big-time guest, so we got Dustin Nelson of Thrillist, The Hockey Writers, and Sports Illustrated.

Dustin joined Tony and Joe to discuss all that happened, including:

  • Merciless Monday: Where we mock Star Sunday
  • Devan Dubnyk’s struggles over the week
  • Why Darcy Kuemper will be important over the second half and beyond
  • Zach Parise putting his game back together

Then after the break, they move on to the World Junior Championships

  • Getting excited for Joel Eriksson Ek’s well-rounded game
  • Jordan Greenway’s meteoric rise- Will he be able to be as dominant against stronger competition?
  • Luke Kunin shines in a defensive role
  • Kirill “The Ghostface Krilla” Kaprizov drags Russia all the way to a Bronze Medal
  • Where does Alex Tuch factor into this forward group now?

And more!
