Daren starts the episode chatting with Ray Ferraro. Ferraro explains why the Maple Leafs power play has struggled recently, why voting for the awards this season is very difficult, and how he will lean on analytics more than ever as he determines who to vote for. He talks about how players on the Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights can't fall in the trap of looking ahead to a potential playoff matchup and marvels at the depth of coaching in the NHL. Ray gives his picks for the Hart Trophy and the Calder trophy. Sam Bennett also joins Daren (41:00) to talk about getting traded to the Florida Panthers, playing for Joel Quenneville, learning the quirks of his new teammates, and playing more minutes for the Panthers. Bennett explains why it didn't work out in Calgary and discusses what his plans are for his mustache as he's now playing in Florida.
