Darren & Ray get into headlines including their thoughts on the Preds extension of Josi, the Isles success, the impact on the Blues of Tarasenko’s injury, and what to make of the lack of toughness and push-back on the Leafs roster. Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving join Darren at the Heritage Classic and talk about his playing days as a bruising D-man in the AHL, IHL and ECHL, his starting-up of the Western Professional Hockey League, and his path to the front office and the GM chair, and what he has learned from his iconic father.
