The Hockey News Podcast: What should the Flyers do with struggling Carter Hart?

Will Philly consider benching or sending down its star goalie? Will the Blues seek a Tarasenko replacement on the trade market? And more.

This week on The Hockey News Podcast, with senior writers Ken Campbell, Ryan Kennedy and Matt Larkin:

- St. Louis Blues right winger Vladimir Tarasenko is out at least five months after left shoulder surgery. Can the Blues stay afloat without him? Will GM Doug Armstrong explore trade options?

- Carter Hart struggling between the pipes in Philadelphia, while Brian Elliott heats up. Should the Flyers bench Hart, ride out the slump or send him down?

- The Los Angeles Kings have been outscored 15-4 in the past three games. Coach Todd McLellan says some of them "probably can't play in the league right now." Can the Kings escape this freefall? Is McLellan the right fit as coach?

- The Ducks acquire defenseman Erik Gudbranson with Josh Manson hurt. Good or bad idea?

- Live mailbag Q&A session
