Another Thursday is upon us which means another episode of the Real Life Podcast is set to help wrap up the week and get set for the weekend. This week, the boys discussed Taylor Hall signing in Buffalo, what an all Canadian Division would look like, Tyson Barrie’s number, and welcomed Scott Hastings from OddsShark to talk about the world of betting.
To kick off today’s podcast, the guys jumped in with a look at Baggedmilk’s doppelganger that popped up on Instagram this past week after it was discovered another guy in Edmonton is calling himself Baggedmilk and recording podcast. Is there a turf war brewing between the two? Will they come together in some kind of partnership? Back to the NHL, the guys discussed Taylor Hall signing in Buffalo and whether or not it makes any sense for a guy that claimed he was looking to win rather than secure a bag. That said, does a one-year contract in Buffalo pave the way for a return to Edmonton later on? Should the Oilers even be interested in bringing Hall back? From there, the guys looked at the possibility of an all Canadian Division and what that would look like for rivalries around the country and the NHL at large. Touching on a sensitive subject for many fans around here, the boys discussed whether they’d be okay with Tyson Barrie choosing to wear #94 as he did last season in Toronto. Does it matter if he comes in and wears Ryan Smyth’s old number? Lastly, the guys wrapped things up by welcoming Scott Hastings from OddsShark to the podcast as he helped to break down NHL free agency, betting trends from the NFL, and the latest news in the world of sports.
