Scouts on Labanc’s Struggles + There’s Trade Interest in Kane



Why has Kevin Labanc struggled for the San Jose Sharks this year?

I talked with three NHL scouts and shared their thoughts on the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast (4:43). What’s the industry perception of Labanc? Why haven’t Labanc and Nick Bonino worked well together?

Nick Flohr and I also discuss why a Jake DeBrusk for a Kevin Labanc swap wouldn’t make sense for Boston (28:00).

I floated an idea — pure speculation — that the San Jose Sharks could help Labanc out by acquiring Dylan Strome from Chicago (35:00). Why could a Strome-Labanc duo present a match-up problem for the opposition?

We close off with thoughts on Labanc’s future with the San Jose Sharks.

Also, I share the latest that I’m hearing about an Evander Kane trade. There is interest, but what’s the nature of it (46:00)?

Finally, in the SPORTLOGiQ Stat of the Week, we extoll the virtues of Noah Gregor (56:11).
