In the SEASON FINALE, the guys provide their insight on a very active Day 1 of NHL Free Agency. Fresh off of ‘Free Agent Frenzy’ on TSN, Dregs talks the annual July 1st theatrics on the panel, and growing to love the comedic side of the show. Ray gives a shout-out to TSN legend Gino Reda, and spoke on enjoying the festivities from the comfort of his couch!

In Headlines, the guys delve into a busy Day 1 of NHL Free Agency. Brad Treliving’s first free agent signings as Maple Leafs GM saw the additions of Ryan Reaves, and John Klingberg. Ray shares his view that the Leafs are worse-off now than they were to end the season, and questions how adding a purely offensive defenceman in Klingberg will move the needle. Dregs talks Tyler Bertuzzi and discussions with the Leafs.

The Sens have their goalie! Ray gives his opinion on Joonas Korpisalo, and a long-term bet on a goalie who’s game has a lot of question marks. When speaking on the Senators, the conversation naturally shifts to Alex DeBrincat; the US-born winger looking for 'Meier-Money' and a move back to his home-country. Plus, a surprising stat that might explain some of the scorer's goal decline this season.

Dregs dishes on Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon having more than a ‘seat at the table’, and the guys talk bold moves made by the Canes. Can GM Don Waddell land the big ‘fish’ of the off-season, Erik Karlsson?? Plus, eye-popping Islanders signings, Rangers & Bruins’ 1-year deals, & more!

Kris Abbott joins the show after celebrating another trip around the sun. Kris took some ribbing as the guys had some fun with just how old he turned! The summer sports slowdown means Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest gets the spotlight; Joey Chestnut’s dominance, analyzing (or over-analyzing) the rules of the contest, and how the pod would fare if they competed.

In Ask Ray & Dregs Anything, Ray is asked which active-player he would pick as a linemate, and Dregs tips his hat to Bob Cole, and fellow ‘insider’ Woj. Ray gets subtly roasted by a listener from Norway who asks which of wife Cammi’s many accomplishments he most would've wanted on his hockey resume.
