Shawn is joined by guest co-host Mike Zeisberger for this week's episode as Dan Rosen enjoys a little vacation time. Mason Appleton and Kyle Capobianco of the Winnipeg Jets stopped by the NYC offices and took a little time to sit with Shawn (16:16) to talk about their season, the reasons why Rick Bowness works for their group, the playoff races in the Western Conference, Connor Hellebuyck's importance to the team and Josh Morrissey's breakout season. Shawn and Mike start the episode talking about the Ryan O'Reilly trade and asking whether or not the deal makes the Maple Leafs a legitimate cup favorite, while dissecting all aspects of the deal (2:00). They look back at the Stadium Series in Carolina and marvel at just how good of a team the Hurricanes are this season, with Shawn claiming they are better than the Boston Bruins. With the Trade Deadline looming, the guys look at what teams are buyers and who are sellers. Where is Patrick Kane going? Would anyone have interest in John Gibson? What makes sense for the Edmonton Oilers? What's going on with the Capitals and Penguins? They tackle all these questions and more.... Follow @TheRink on Twitter.
