Kings Of the Podcast Ep. 17 – Bringing the 2020 to 2020

After spoiling listeners with five straight days of episodes surrounding Christmas, Kings of the Podcast has returned to a more normal schedule. For the latest edition, no guest was needed. It’s a straight ahead hour-plus of hosts John Hoven and Dennis Bernstein arguing hockey at all levels – from the World Junior tournament to the LA Kings.

Here’s just a few of the items covered this time around:

– WJC recap, including what went wrong with Team USA
– A look at all nine Kings prospects in the tournament
– Derek Forbort and Alec Martinez return, what’s next
– Line combinations and defensive pairings
– Drew Doughty the All Star?
– Kurtis MacDermid suspension, a good or bad thing
– Midseason grades for players and management
– More hockey information you need to know, and will share with your friends at dinner

NOTE: If you missed any of the holiday episodes from our Kings of the Podcast boxset, here are quick links for your reference… Colin Fraser, Robb Stauber, Roman Vopat, Tony Granato, and Stephen Nelson.
