On The Forecheck Podcast, Ep. 22: In The Trenches w/ “Crazy Charlie” Saunier

The “Renegades of Puck’s” fearless captain talks Nashville’s hockey media, the origins of “No Half Steppin’,” and plenty of Preds hockey

For this week’s On The Forecheck Podcast, hosts Nick and Shaun venture to the trenches.

That’s because “Crazy Charlie” Saunier, host of Renegades of Puck TV and longtime Nashville media personality, joins the show for plenty of unfiltered conversation. That includes the origins of the Renegades’ “No Half Steppin’” mantra, the state of Nashville’s hockey media landscape, Charlie’s run wrestling for NWA Wildside, his longtime love of hockey, and of course, plenty of Nashville Predators hockey!

Other topics discussed:

  • The ups and downs from the Predators’ first two losses.
  • Why Mikael Granlund might be the team’s most important player this year.
  • John Hynes’s “line blender” on defense and how it’s impacting chemistry.
  • The pros and cons of sending Cody Glass to Milwaukee for more minutes.
  • Whether Philip Tomasino may benefit from more time in the NHL.
  • The Preds’ next two games in the opening homestand./
