Martin Biron and I threw some gasoline on the fire right away on Hockey Hotline today.

First question of the day... Why didn't Jack Eichel start the game?

We broke down what we felt were every possible scenarios that either helped or hurt Dan Bylsma's decision to not start Jack in what seemed to be a much anticipated match-up.

We then broke down the two goals that Connor McDavid scored and what could've been done to prevent them.

Rob Ray called us. And that was that.

Also, talk about teams that were hit and miss at the deadline.

Longtime Sabres Defenseman Jay McKee finished off the show with his thoughts on McDavid's game last night. Jay was in attendance. He talked about similarities between McDavid and Eichel. He played for Bylsma in Pittsburgh. Was he surprised that Dan didn't start Jack? (Insert company coaching line here).

Hour One // Hour Two

We'll be back on Thursday and 10 a.m. on WGR 550. Don't miss it.
