Dropping The Gloves Episode 228: The Ultimate Trade Deadline Preview

| Liam Horrobin

Start your weekend off by listening to “The Ultimate Trade Deadline Preview” from Dropping The Gloves with John Scott.

Before they dove into the trade talk, John and his co-host team did a couple of quick hits, including Kyle Palmieri’s new shaved look and the Edmonton Oilers impressive nine-game sweep of the Ottawa Senators.

You can have to wait much longer after that, though, for the trade talk to begin.

John clarifies that they’ll only be talking about contenders and teams who could become contenders if they add before the deadline. They go around the NHL division by division breaking down the teams starting in the West Division.

The guys throw out plenty of trade proposals, including a fascinating one between the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers. A trade that could change the entire landscape of the North Division.

Tim gives his predictions for the top five players available at the end of the episode and where they’ll land. We’d like you to do the same; leave us a comment on here or on any of our social media platforms and let us know where you think guys like Taylor Hall, Mike Hoffman or David Savard are going to land.
