Cost Per Pointcast Ep. 36: Has Melnyk Killed the LeBreton Deal?

The Cost Per Pointcast returns to Silver Seven!

It’s been a while since we’ve last had a podcast here at Silver Seven, and today we’re excited to announce that the Cost Per Pointcast is back! Originally started on this very website in 2016, the podcast moved to HockeyBuzz earlier this year along with its founder Trevor Shackles.

The series will be returning to Silver Seven, now that I have hopped on board as co-host! This should allow for more frequent recordings, bringing you extra insight and analysis into the Ottawa Senators.

Today’s topics include...

  • Eugene Melnyk potentially putting an end to LeBreton Flats with a lawsuit against his partner
  • Chris Wideman traded to Edmonton
  • Record-breaking defensive numbers (not in the good way)
  • Drake Batherson’s hot start
  • Matt Duchene’s contract negotiations
  • Jean-Gabriel Pageau returning to the ice
  • And more!/

If you enjoy the podcast, be sure to give it a five-star rating on iTunes. And if you have any suggestions for future episodes — be it new segments, topics or anything — feel free to drop a comment in the section below. My goal is to bring better quality audio for future episodes, so look forward to that!
