The Roundup

Exploring Jason Demers and the Canucks, Toronto as a win now destination, Jets being undisciplined, are Ken Holland’s days numbered, how much have the Flames improved, McDavid and Draisaitl is a dream, a Jordan Eberle interview and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by Violent Gentlemen
