Biscuits: A Hockey Podcast

Final Countdown

The Washington Capitals are one win from a Stanley Cup and despite Sean and Dave picking the Caps to win in a sweep, only one is ready to say this series is over. This episode is a Final extravaganza with a breakdown of Games 3 and 4, the idea of puck luck, officiating when embellishment is rampant, scratching David Perron and leaning on Ryan Reaves, Barry Trotz’s future, the idea that Alex Ovechkin is a “different” player than years past and whether the Caps should want to win the Cup in Las Vegas or at home in front of their fans. Also: Reader mail, runner-up parades and how stinking rich will John Carlson be in a few weeks.

  • The Last One

    It’s the season finale of Biscuits, which features a discussion about Tom Wilson’s new contract, the notion that Jarome Iginla somehow isn’t a first-ballot Hall of Famer, the sudden departure of Trevor Linden from the Canucks, the arbitration hearings for William Karlsson, Mark Stone and Cody Ceci and some reader questions to take us into the offseason. 
  • Arbitration Station

    The big news from this past week in the NHL was the arbitration hearing of Jacob Trouba and the arbitration hearing of Matt Dumba that never happened. Each player received new contracts and Sean and Dave are here to talk about them in between mentions of baseball and softball. Also: Sean is confused by six teams heading into next season, and Dave is here to offer absolutely no help for clearing things up. 
  • Extending the Podcast

    Sean and Dave are here to be your July hockey podcast and this week is full of contract extensions and new deals — Marc-Andre Fleury’s bad one, Connor Hellebuyck’s long one, Adam Henrique’s expensive one, Elias Lindholm’s risky one and Juuse Saros’ smart one. Also: The heroism of Marian Hossa accepting a trade to Arizona, just trade Erik Karlsson already, saying goodbye to Ray Emery and casting an Ocean’s 11 movie with hockey players on the fly. 
  • Nik of Time

    Dave and Sean react to breaking news of the Nikita Kucherov extension, the lack of an Erik Karlsson trade, Shea Weber's secret injury, Artemi Panarin's honesty and lots more in a nice episode of Biscuits.
  • The Tavares Betrayal (and Erik Karlsson)

    Sean and Dave are here to talk free agency but mostly about John Tavares surprising everyone and choosing the Leafs and breaking the hearts of the Islanders and their fans who aren’t handling this very well. Also: Drew Doughty’s deal, Ryan O’Reilly’s trade and the Erik Karlsson trade to Tampa that has definitely already happened or won’t happen at all. 
  • John Tavares Sweepstakes

    The prize of the 2018 free-agent class is holding court in Los Angeles, and Sean and Dave are here to tell you exactly where John Tavares will sign and how teams will attempt to woo him. Also: Draft weekend recap, trading elite players that like museums, signing John Carlson to a mega-deal, the booing of Gary Bettman in Dallas and a look at how the Canucks can replace the Sedins in free agency. 
  • Where In The World Is Mike Hoffman?

    Sean and Dave were lucky enough to record a new episode before Mike Hoffman’s trade to San Jose and the trade a few minutes later to Florida. Does this mean Erik Karlsson stays in Ottawa? Are the Senators screwed no matter what? What do they do with the pick they owe the Avs? And in non-Senators news, we’ve got Barry Trotz jumping ship, another questionable Canadiens trade, the future of John Tavares and who would play Kyle Dubas in a Leafs promotional video?
  • Capping It Off

    Alex Ovechkin and his blood-alcohol levels have been the stars since the Washington Capitals won their first Stanley Cup last week, and Sean and Dave are here to talk about how it all went down and what comes next this offseason. There’s also a look ahead to the big storylines heading into free agency, including John Carlson, Ilya Kovalchuk, Erik Karlsson, Milan Lucic and why in the world would Oliver Ekman-Larsson sign up for eight more years in Arizona. Also: The Sedins.
