It’s been a helluva ride for Calgary Flames fans this offseason. There has been so much to talk about and digest.
This week, the fates of the Flames and Florida Panthers intersected — at the same time Florida Hockey Now was set to launch a podcast.
Episode 1 of the Florida Hockey Now Podcast is live, and as luck would have it, I got to be the first guest.
I joined host Colby Guy to talk about the recent blockbuster deal that brought Jonathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar, Cole Schwindt and a lottery-protected 2025 first-round pick to the Calgary Flames for Matthew Tkachuk.
Topics discussed include:
— How both teams fare after the trade was made.
— Head coach Darryl Sutter and his influence on departed Johnny Gaudreau and Tkachuk, and what it means for Huberdeau.
— Whether Huberdeau and Weegar will sign in Calgary long-term?
— What Tkachuk brings to the Panthers.
Colby is working on getting the audio up on all of your favourite platforms — including Apple Podcasts — but the entire episode is also on this YouTube channel and can be accessed below.
Didn’t realize it was a video podcast – I would have shaved.
