The One Puck Short Podcast is jolted back in to life following a seismic week in the NHL during which P.K. Subban and Taylor Hall were traded while Steven Stamkos stayed in the sun.
New York Times’ writer Pat Pickens guests on this week’s One Puck Short Podcast, discussing the Rangers, Islanders and Devils starts to the 2015/16 NHL season.
Topics include the Rangers stuttering start to the year, Kyle Okposo’s future and whether New Jersey can remain in the play-off picture.

The Metropolitan Division houses elite stars, awards candidates and has no shortage of goal scorers – but can it produce a Stanley Cup champion?
Wingers Damien Brunner and Matt Martin both hit the headlines last week.
Despite one being under the microscope for his poor play, and the other seemingly in the Department of Player Safety’s cross hair, their situations may not be as different as they first appear.
In the highly competitive world of the NHL; players need to ‘justify’ their place in the line up, on an almost nightly basis in some cases.
There’s always someone else who wants to take their job – and both Brunner and Martin have fallen ‘victim’ to that need to ‘make an impression’ over the past 7 days.
On the cusp of playing in his 1,500th NHL game, Jaromir Jagr’s 1,770 career points leave him just a secondary assist away from tying the great Marcel Dionne for fifth on the all time list.
Now in to his 22nd NHL season; Jagr may also eclipse Ron Francis career total of 1,798 points before the season is finished. And if the his apparently ageless body continues to hold, Gordie Howe’s 1,850 career points might also come under threat before Jagr finally calls it a day – leaving only Mark Messier and Wayne Gretzky with more.
But Jagr’s continued advance up the statistical leader boards simply underlines what an exceptional, and sometimes controversial, career the Kladno native has had.
With a plethora of personal awards, two Stanley Cup rings and international success to his name, the veteran winger is a lock to be inducted in to the Hall of Fame at the first time of asking – but where does the 42-year old stand among the game’s greatest?
InGoal Magazine writer Greg Balloch joins me on this weeks podcast to discuss some of the biggest stories in the NHL.
Expansion to Las Vegas was top of the agenda, with Vancouver’s form, Ben Bishop’s continued success and Cory Schneider’s insane workload also coming under the microscope.

Cory Schneider started his sixteenth straight game for the New Jersey Devils against Minnesota last night.
The Devils came away with a 3-1 win to keep them in the play-off hunt, but their over reliance on the 28-year old is, at best, concerning – and at worst incompetent.
