The Forecheck Podcast rolls on!

But first...


We have changed platforms for the podcast. We are now on Soundcloud!

Go here to see the full list of new episodes, though you can always access the older episodes on our Bumpers account. Also, the iTunes is updated, so the new episodes will now load from Soundcloud to iTunes using the magic of the internet.

Today, Andrew Berkshire joined me to talk about Alex Galchenyuk's strange role with the Habs, including what a potential trade deal might look like.

We also talked about:

  • the current holes in the Preds roster (as well as the strengths)
  • “is Filip Forsberg a star?”
  • Samuel Girard—what’s the plan here?
  • Are the Predators boring? A discussion.
  • A brief tour of some other NHL teams, including the Lightning, Stars, Oilers, and of course the Habs.
  • P.K. Subban’s bee-sting hip check
