Beyond Checkerdome #160: Hello and Goodbye

Say hello to Craig Berube, Daniel Tkaczuk, David Alexander, Brayden Schenn, Oskar Sundqvist and a host of draft picks. Say goodbye to David Perron, Ryan Reaves and Jori Lehtera. And say hello to the Free Agent Frenzy.

Fare thee well, Reavo.

It’s been a fast-moving off-season. Hell, a lot has happened since we recorded THIS podcast (i.e. the free agent frenzy). Nonetheless, we soldier on and deliver you a recap of just some of the things that happened since the Stanley Cup was awarded.

Among our topics for Episode #160:

  • Our beers.
  • The Vegas Golden Knights selected their team and pried David Perron away from the Blues in the process.
  • The trade of Jori Lehtera and two first-round picks to the Flyers for Brayden Schenn as well as the circumstances leading to that trade.
  • The trade of Ryan Reaves and a second-round pick to the Penguins for Oskar Sundqvist and a first-round pick and how awesome of a trade that was.
  • The drafting of Robert Thomas, Klim Kostin (!!!), Alexey Toropchenko, David Noel, Trenton Bourque and Anton Andersson into the Blues’ prospect pool.
  • A small peek ahead into free agency (which hadn’t happened yet as of this recording).
