One of the best things about sports is the development of rivalries. Even in down seasons, taking down your biggest rival can save what is otherwise a lost year. The latest episode of Missin Curfew, presented by DraftKings Network, takes a look at the top rivalries in the NHL and which ones hosts Shane O’Brien and Scottie Upshall wish they were part of.
Last week’s episode had a segment where the duo talked about some new alternate jerseys for teams, and they are continuing the talks in this episode. This time, they discuss whether or not the Toronto Maple Leafs are due for a makeover. They added an alternate jersey in 2021, but overall, their home and away jerseys have looked relatively the same since their inception back in 1927.
In a new segment, Uppy tries to guess how 2023 is going for the teams that he played on. He has the Nashville Predators, Philadelphia Flyers, Arizona Coyotes, Columbus Blue Jackets, Florida Panthers and St. Louis Blues to choose from.
The focus stays on Upshall as he talks about what it was like to play alongside Jaromir Jagr with the Florida Panthers in the 2014-2015 season. O’Brien talks about what it was long to play with Mats Sundin when they were both with the Vancouver Canucks in the 2008-2009 season.
Many people are quick to judge a team that is struggling. The episode ends with Upshall and O’Brien taking on this task and talking about how they would handle being the GM of a bad team.
