AIH Superfans Episode 30: Draft Lottery Hangover

Hello everyone! After last Saturday's madness, the ranks of the AIH Superfans were somewhat thinned this week. Regretfully, Ryan was lost to a sea of endless Patrik Laine partying. Episode 30 managed to trudge along with Alan and I alone, before Papi arrived to provide a much-needed second wind!

Aside from all the Patrik Laine pronunciations, this week's conversation included:

  • Highlights from the World Championships
  • The Auston Matthews vs Patrik Laine debate
  • Dante Fabbro, Samuel Girard, Kale Clague and other possible options at 22nd overall
  • Whether we'll be upset if the Winnipeg Jets select two forwards in the 1st round
  • Thoughts on trading up (and down)
  • Expansion draft-related concerns vis-à-vis both adding established NHL d-men and protection in general
  • Bruce Boudreau, the Central Division and whether the Jets are a playoff team in 2016-17
  • When do we start yelling and screaming about Paul Maurice?
  • More about the 2006-08 Toronto Maple Leafs than you ever needed to know
