You know hockey is for everyone when a white guy and a Hindi guy make a hockey podcast. How does Don Cherry feel about that?

We tried not to go too much into the Don Cherry saga from this week, although we did give our two cents plus went through some possible replacements on Hockey Night in Canada. Don’t take us too seriously, we don’t either.

We tried to keep things positive on this episode, starting by our mission to find Bo Horvat a friend. It’s the same story this season as he’s rotating through wingers at a record pace. I vouch for J.T. Miller and Horvat to get more time together, while co-host Kyle Bhawan vouches for “The Lotto Line.”

We also touch on the Edmonton Oilers and their...good goalie situation? The goalie talk then continues with our look at the five worst goalie contracts in hockey.

Before we get to a rundown of the episode, a question for the people we posed on the podcast.
