Season 3 Episode 14


0:00 Welcome to the All Business Edition of the #Bobcast, where Bob gets right down to business previewing and “chortling” about the NHL Draft Lottery.

5:03 Professor Bob gives us a history lesson on the NHL Draft Lottery, including the Aki Berg sweepstakes and how Sidney Crosby became a Penguin.

9:55 The league gets rid of the “only move up 4 rule” and the anti-tanking legislation is now in effect.

12:45 A listener asks Bob what will happen in the Oilers win another draft lottery. Editor’s note: Bet on Shero. 

17:23 A listener asks Bob how lottery protection impacts trades and who made a deal that really got hammered in the draft — the Leafs-Devils-Nordiques triangle.

23:50 Several listeners ask Bob for a Jack Hughes scouting report and for comparables.

29:53 Bob breaks down his TSN Draft Rankings. While Jack Hughes is the the unanimous #1 pick, the gap has closed over the season.

41:33 A listener suggests Bob take up narration with his soothing pipes and asks what are the chances that there could be a special draft for goaltenders.

47:40 It’s awards season and Bob explains his trepidation about his picks this year.

52:58 A listener asks Bob if Robin Lehner has a shot at the Masterton. Spoiler Alert: He’s got Bob’s vote. Bob suggests his listeners re-read Lehners article from 2018 in The Athletic.

58:20 A listener asks if the NHL is missing out on not having awards named after Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr.

1:01:50 Two listeners ask if Craig Berube or Bruce Cassidy have a shot at the Adams. Bob says both deserve consideration as well as Jon Cooper. Editor’s Note: All three of you are wrong. NO. Note from Bob: Pretty sure Barry Trotz got mentioned, too.

1:06:47 Bob thanks UNTUCKit for sponsoring the #Bobcast and previews his new wardrobe from the Sherway Gardens store. Use the Promo code Bobcast to save 20%.

1:08:45 A listener sings the praises of Jeff Blashill and the job he’s done with the Red Wings.

1:11:45 A listener asks Bob to clarify the rules on signing NCAA players.

1:13:00 A listener asks Bob about the NCAA free agent loophole and how it impacts NCAA players and Bob says it’s not a loophole.

1:23:43 A listener asks Bob if a goalie who gets pulled out by a concussion spotter still gets credit for a shutout. It is not a shutout but rather a shared team shutout. It is not credited as the starting goalie’s shutout.

1:26:07 Bob reflects on the connection between Jonathan Pitre and the Humboldt Broncos
