Dropping The Gloves Episode 226: Is the Canucks Season Over? + Trade Rumors

| Liam Horrobin

On this Tuesday’s edition of the show, John and Tim dive into the news around the NHL, including the upcoming trade deadline, the Vancouver Canucks COVID situation, and what’s happening between the pipes in Leafs Nation.

Two major names involved in trade talks are New Jersey Devils forward Kyle Palmieri and former Hart Trophy winner and current Buffalo winger Taylor. Palmieri has been a healthy scratch for the Devils, making it only a matter of time before he departs. John seems to believe that the New York Islanders are a perfect fit for a guy like him, especially with Andres Lee now on the sidelines. On the other hand, John thinks Taylor Hall could become a distraction for Stanley Cup contending teams.

The breaking news around the NHL this past week has been the COVID situation in Vancouver. There’s a ton of uncertainty of what will happen with their season, which John and Tim discuss. The hope, of course, is that we can all see the Vancouver Canucks back on the ice soon.

Finally, in Leafs Land, there’s a goaltending controversy going on. Jack Campbell has been unbelievable for Toronto winning his first nine games with Toronto this season. The question now is, who is the true number one goaltender for the Maple Leafs? Do they go with the red hot Campbell or the veteran Fredrick Andersen? Let us know what you think.
