    Mike Traikos joins Paul Chapman to discuss the Leafs exit from the playoffs and what the team is missing. While Mike thinks the team needs to get bigger and nastier, salary cap issues leaves few options for a fix.   They also look at the Flames and Jets and ponder what they need to do to move forward in the playoffs. Fans of all three teams are still rueing the missed opportunity of moving on in a season where most of the major hurdles in front of them have been removed.

    Postmedia's national hockey writer Mike Traikos joins Paul Chapman  to talk about the wild start to the NHL Playoffs.    Why are the Leafs leading the Bruins after lagging behind them all season? Why is there so much hate in the playoffs from Kadri to Ovechkin to Kane? It's been nasty and violent and fans love it.

    Mike Traikos breaks down the 2019 playoff matchups. Would it be considered an upset if the Leafs were to beat the Bruins? Which Canadian team has the best shot to go the distance?   They also talk about home ice advantage and the New York Islanders, who were considered to have the worst arena in the NHL a few short years ago, being back in their old barn with rabid fans and perhaps the best atmosphere in the NHL. The draft lottery is also a hot topic this week, why the Senators are smugly grinning and why the Canucks think they are cursed.

    Postmedia's national hockey writer Mike Traikos joins Paul Chapman to examine why the Toronto Maple Leafs weren't more active at the deadline and where that leaves them after the trade deadline.   This week's podcast also discusses John Tavares' return to Long Island, and if his trail blazing move to join his boyhood team, the Leafs, will open the door to see more superstars in their prime like, say, Connor McDavid, leave their teams for greener pastures, if they don't feel they are competing for the Stanley Cup.   Also covered in this week's podcast: Which teams upgraded the most at the deadline, which teams have the inside track for the final playoff spots, and why we may never see another player like Jarome Iginla again as the Flames prepare to retire the all-time-great's jersey.

    Which Canadian teams have the most to lose?

    This week Paul Chapman and Mike Traikos look at Connor McDavid coming up second-best once again in a meeting with Sidney Crosby.   In his fourth NHL season Crosby won the Stanley Cup, having made the final in his third year. In this, his fourth season, McDavid is falling further away from making the playoffs, his GM and coach have been fired and it's fair to ask if McDavid will have the stomach for a full-blown, start-from-scratch rebuild.   Will he want to leave the Oilers?    In the second period talk turns to the playoff races and how weak the teams in the west are fighting, or really jostling lightly, for the final playoff spots. Mike relays what Canucks General Manager Jim Benning told him this week about the team's thoughts headed into the trade deadline and into the stretch drive.   In the final period Mike tells us what he's hearing from general managers about the trade deadline. Who is most likely to make a deal? Which team is in the most precarious position headed into the deadline and will the defending Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals be able to just flick a switch when the playoffs arrive?

    Now that the Toronto Maple Leafs have loaded up their salary cap by giving nearly $60 million to Matthews, how small is their window to win a Stanley Cup considering the fact they now have two players who are making $11 million a season?   National hockey writer Mike Traikos joins Paul Chapman to talk about all things around Matthews' contract and if the Leafs are “all in” to win the Stanley Cup this season.   The podcast also looks at the Calgary Flames and the Montreal Canadiens, two of the NHL's hottest teams. Which one has the better chance to win the Stanley Cup? Do the Flames have the best line in all of hockey? And is Carey Price back to his very best?   Lastly, Off the Post gets into the turtle derby for the last playoff spots in the west. Edmonton and Vancouver are both involved in a laughable race to the playoffs where some really bad teams are still in the hunt to get in the tournament for Lord Stanley's chalice.   Download Off the Post every week via Apple Podcasts to get the inside news on the NHL and give us a rating.

Other topics the podcast covers includes the surprise teams and players of the season, including looking at the half-season pro hockey writers award leaders, and gauging why the Calgary Flames have a better shot to win the Stanley Cup than the Winnipeg Jets or Toronto Maple Leafs. Lastly the podcast covers the All Star Game format, what could be done to make it more intriguing to people outside of the host market and if any business groundwork will be laid prior to what should be a busy trade deadline.

    Postmedia's national hockey writer Michael Traikos joins Paul Chapman to talk about the issues around the NHL this week. Traikos explains that the big, heavy hitters around the NHL are the difference makers that everyone wants. Tom Wilson, Ryan Reaves, Dustin Byfuglien are the prototypes, and teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs want one, and may have to overpay to get one. Traikos argues NHL general managers love to copy blueprints, and the big guy who can be physical but can still play in the Top 6 is the one thing every team wants.

Is the NHL really doing enough to promote offence and get the young stars blazing? They also talk about the next generation of the ‘hockey machine' kid, who has known nothing but elite hockey since they were a kid and are now taking over the NHL. Stu says the days of French Canadiens dominating the NHL are over as we now see hockey factories in places like California, Missouri and even Arizona. Arizona!

Can Ovechkin get close to Wayne Gretzky's all-time record as he's on a 65-goal pace for this season? Next the lads put the Canadian teams under the microscope. There are currently three Canadian teams in the NHL's top five, and the Leafs lead the way. Would the Leafs winning the Stanley Cup be cheered across the country? In the last segment, Don and Paul get into trade rumours, the best Christmas hockey gifts they've ever received (we all want either a table hockey or an air hockey unit this year don't we?), and finish with talk of another Canadian Christmas gift, the World Junior tournament.

The Ottawa Senators Uber disaster is also a point of the podcast as well as the role of the enforcer, Milan Lucic's NHL hearing and the surprise success of Montreal's Max Domi.

In the third period the guys talk about Carey Price tying Patrick roy for the second-most wins in Habs history.

Is the NHL's ‘code' of protecting players fading away? Also they talk about this week's legalization of marijuana in Canada and what that could mean for NHL players. In the second period the talk turns to, who else, the Leafs. With Auston Matthews and Morgan Rielly having red-hot starts to the season, they examine the Leafs true chances to end Canada's Stanley Cup drought, but also how it proves the need for a deadly power play in today's game. In the final period they rank the NHL's best and worst teams, look at some of the bigger surprises (Montreal and Ottawa) around the league and which divisions have the toughest races.
