DPR – Episode 30: Summer Series – Sabres, Islanders, Blackhawks, Ducks and Flyers with Russ Cohen

Paul Zwambag



Eastern Teams

Paul ranks the Sabres trio trying to break into the NHL and brings to light a European import player who could open some eyes early. Peter finds out how highly owned the Isles top prospects (Josh Ho-Sang, Mathew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier) are, so he focuses on the defense with four guys who are ready or on the brink of regular NHL minutes.

Players discussed include Alex Nylander, Justin Bailey, Nicholas Baptiste, Hudson Fasching, Viktor Antipin and Linus Ullmark from the Sabres

Ryan Pulock, Adam Pelech, Devon Toews and Sebastian Aho from the Islanders.


Western Teams

Pete decided it was time to cover the Blackhawks and Paul countered with the Anaheim Ducks prospect depth.

Players discussed include John Hayden, Tanner Kero, Matthew Highmore, Gustav Forsling, Jan Rutta and Luc Snuggerud from the Blackhawks.

Ondrej Kase, Nic Kerdiles, Sam Steel, Kalle Kossila, Brandon Montour and Jacob Larsson from the Ducks.


Interview with Russ Cohen

The guys invite Russ Cohen from ____ back on the podcast to discuss the Philadelhia Flyers. Russ projects which defense men has the best value and how the Flyers will look come September. Players discussed include 2017 first round pick Nolan Patrick, Oskar Lindblom, Travis Sanheim, Samuel Morin, Philippe Myers, Robert Hagg, Jordan Weal, Travis Konecny and Anthony Stolarz. Russ also gives us a few dark horse prospects to watch for.
