It’s been an explosive week in the NHL, with two prominent coach firings and another firestorm brewing in Ottawa. Changes are coming for everyone, even those finding success early on. A restricted free agent remains unsigned now well into November, and the race for the Calder and Hart trophies are well under way. We’ve seen recent contracts given out to undrafted forwards and franchise icon goaltenders.
With that, we’re going to run another mailbag here at PHR. Our very own Brian La Rose will be back this weekend to answer all of your questions, and give you his take on the recent changes around the league. Can the Edmonton Oilers turn a hot start into a playoff run? Will the Los Angeles Kings bounce back under Willie Desjardins? What’s next for the Ottawa Senators’ franchise?
If you’ve missed the chance to ask a question during our weekly Live Chat on Thursday evenings, here’s your chance. Submit using #PHRMailbag on Twitter, or by commenting down below. We’ll run the mailbag this weekend and try to get to each and every question.
Make sure to check out our most recent edition, in which Brian touches on the Florida Panthers, Philadelphia Flyers and Dallas Stars situations while also giving some insight into any potential coaching change in St. Louis. With Joel Quenneville on the market now, his thoughts could be even more applicable.
