Why Signing Noah Hanifin is A No Brainer

On hour 2 of the Big Show, George and Matt start the hour with a conversation on Noah Hanifin. Eric Francis said yesterday on the Flames broadcast that he feels an extension is close to getting over the finish line. George and Matt discuss why signing Noah Hanifin to a long term extension feels like a no brainer for Craig Conroy. The guys discuss if the Flames want to sign any of their pending UFA's Hanifin seems like the clear front runner. Signing Elias Lindholm to a long term 9 million dollar AAV extension feels like it wouldn't age as well as a Hanifin deal. Later the guys get you ready for all the action that will be going on in the NFL for wild card weekend with the NFL best bets!(23:47) To wrap the hour, Frank Seravalli joins the program! The guys start the conversation with Frank with more on Hanifin. Frank feels that maybe signing Hanifin isn't such a no brainer given the fact that Noah has said in the past that he doesn't necessarily see himself as a member of the Flames long term. Frank mentions that the Flames haven't been able to pull the trigger on any big deals because the trade market isn't very robust. The guys ask Frank if Colorado is a possible trade partner for the Flames and who Colorado would possibly like to give up in a trade. We get Frank's insights on some of teh other big name players that need new deals like Sam Reinhart, Steven Stamkos, and Jake Guentzel. This leads us into a conversation on how province and state taxes allow teams to manipulate their cap structure and allows teams to pitch to players they can take home more money. For example William Nylander will take home less money than Matthew Tkachuk. Lasty, we get Frank's reactions to the Cutter Gauthier, Philadelphia Flyers saga and what he thinks went wring there.  The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Media Inc. or any affiliate.
