Can we dream of a day when racism no longer exists in the sport? What will Emilie Castonguay bring to the Canucks? And more.

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

- Is it time to blow up the freefalling Philadelphia Flyers?

- Listener mailbag: What's the most unbreakable NHL record?
