Silky N’ Filthy podcast: LEASTern Conference Preview

We’re not hating on the teams in the east, just the east as a whole

Too many hockey shows out there protrude that East Coast bias, but not Silky N’ Filthy.

So why are we previewing the Eastern Conference first? Because we want to save The West (the best) for last, obviously.

This is our first of two shows where we preview each team ahead of the 2019-20 NHL regular season. For these season previews, we projected where each team will finish in their division. Then, we tell you how the bottom feeders will win the Stanley Cup, and why the top teams are trash.

We also give you a reason to watch each team this season, although this was a hard exercise for Detroit. Stevie Y better work his voodoo magic quick over there.

Tampa is choke city, the Leafs turning “third time’s the charm” into a myth, and the Penguins have Erik Gudbranson and Jack Johnson together as a thing? The trash segment was a fun one indeed.

Here’s the episode rundown, along with the order of teams mentioned.
