Greg Wyshynski is an American sportswriter and radio personality best known for creating Yahoo! Sports’ ice hockey blog Puck Daddy. He is the host of the Marek Vs. Wyshynski, a daily live hockey podcast.
The boys discuss the police investigation into Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty, the Professional Hockey Writers midseason awards ballots, Ovechkin chasing 700, the strange world of the classic sitcom “Perfect Strangers” and a segment where you asked us anything and everything. Sponsored by AWAY!
The boys discuss the stunning firings of Gerard Gallant in Vegas and Ray Shero in NJ, their replacements and what it all means; debate the state of goaltending in the NHL; discuss Matthew Tkachuk and the “rats” in hockey; break down the All-Star Game events; talk Nicklas Backstrom contract; and look at the Oscar nominations, but mostly talk about JOKER.

The boys discuss the firing of Peter Laviolette and hiring of John Hynes on Nashville; the NHL vs. Alex Ovechkin over the All-Star Game, and whether or not we dig this season's jerseys; Tim Horton's makes a pass at Meghan Markle; the Sharks are in big trouble; the Penguins and Blue Jackets are surprising; our love of Jeopardy! and knowledge; and we make playoff bets on teams months before the playoffs with $100 in fake money.
The boys welcome Dallas Stars broadcaster and all-around goofball Daryl Reaugh to the podcast. Then they break down the Winter Classic, including the pig races, the U.S. falling in world juniors, Kovalchuk to the Canadiens, Brent Seabrook's injuries and bold predictions for 2020. Also, we get into a spoilery "Rise of Skywalker" discussion.
