Matt and Ty are back for a new episode and they’re sticking to hockey, dammit. The NHL is going public with its goals and plans for next season, which could include a shortened schedule and a temporary realignment of teams based on geographical location. What would that entail and what does it mean for the Bruins and the league?
Plus, the NHL is preparing for the possibility of rotating hub city schedules, to allow teams to travel home and be with their families as opposed to spending too much time in a bubble. That could also be a benefit for Boston, but likely will be for a lot of players who struggled during their time away.
Switching gears to the Patriots … why are so many people calling for “tanking,” when it hasn’t proven to be an effective strategy? The guys discuss what the Patriots really need to worry about at the draft and at quarterback.
How alive are the Patriots’ playoff hopes at this point? The Ravens are coming to town while Lamar Jackson hasn’t been quite the same player. Could this be a trap game for Baltimore and a sneaky-winnable game for the Pats? The guys go over what the Pats need to do – and what other teams need to do to help them – in order to climb back into the playoffs by the end of the season.
