In this episode, our senior writer George Fitzgerald joins the show to discuss the elephant in the room—the Ryan McDonagh trade. We discuss the price given up for McDonagh and J.T. Miller, in addition to the impact of losing Vladislav Namestnikov from the main roster, and Libor Hajek and Brett Howden from the prospect pool.

Afterward, Geo and I ruminate about the lineup decisions coach Jon Cooper has in front of him after the trade and what an optimal lineup could be for the Lightning. At the end of the episode, we reminisce about some of our Lightning memorabilia and share some stories about our interactions with some Lightning players/fans.
