On the podcast this week Arune Singh is back on with me to talk about the first two movies in the Fast and Furious franchise, but before we got into that we needed to talk about P.K. Subban, his personal success, and the perception of him around the NHL.

With the hockey stuff out of the way, we got into two movies from the early 2000’s that frankly, aren’t very good, but spawned a powerhouse franchise. What about them was so special that people were compelled to keep coming back?

On today’s podcast Denis Gorman joined me for a quick hit to talk about the hit that may have taken Sidney Crosby out of the playoffs, and the reaction to it around the NHL from players, fans, media, and Pittsburgh in particular.

We also chatted about the New York Rangers’ series against the Ottawa Senators, and the coming out party of Brady Skjei, then shifted to Nashville to talk about the NHL’s consistent failure to promote P.K. Subban.

This week on the podcast I’m joined by the managing editor of Hockey-Graphs.com and the CTO of Hockey Data Inc.; Garret Hohl.

Garret is a big proponent of hockey analytics, as am I, although he works more with public data whereas I work with Sportlogiq, a private company that uses proprietary data.

We tackle the public understanding of statistics, how great Patrik Laine can be, the pros and cons of binning, and the need for some to throw out analytics whenever they don’t perfectly mesh with results.

This week on the podcast, Marc Dumont from Eyes on the Prize joins me to do some playoff predictions for the second round, and then we go deep into what went wrong with the Canadiens this year, and whether they can recover from it.

We also referenced an article on EOTP from Kyle Medeiros on the Canadiens’ inability to break in drafted players, which you can read here.

The man, the beard, the legend; PDOcast host Dimitri Filipovic joined me to talk about the early returns on the 2017 NHL playoffs, going through it series by series, but not before I tell an embarrassing story.

For the first time on the non-hockey version of the podcast, Arune Singh and I vehemently disagree on something, and that something is Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

I believe it’s arguably the greatest trilogy in cinema history, and Arune disagrees pretty strongly. It’s another deep dive examining one of the most beloved characters in all of fiction; the goddamn Batman.
