In this episode we discuss New York Islanders pick Josh Ho-Sang's bold predictions, the settlement in the Todd Bertuzzi / Steve Moore case, and the most recent Hires by the Toronto Maple Leafs head office.  In light of taking the C from Joe Thornton, we ask whether the San Jose Sharks have a leadership issue or if they are grasping for reasons why they can't break through in the playoffs.  

We discuss the Tim Leiweke departure from the Maple Leafs and take some questions from listeners.  

Not only that, we give our Western Conference predictions in which we discuss whether the St. Louis Blues can take over first from the Chicago Blackhawks in the Central and will the Sharks overcome their internal squabbles to lead the Pacific over the LA Kings and Anaheim Ducks?  We have differing opinions on where the Minnesota Wild will end up, but agree on the Colorado Avalanche. 

We also managed to squeeze in some listener questions prompting a discussion of expectations for this year's rookie crop, including Jonathan Drouin, Sam Reinhart, Sam Bennett, Aaron Ekblad, Leon Draisaitl and Josh Ho-Sang.
