The Forecheck Podcast: Episode 42 - Draft Recap & Free Agency

It’s been a minute. Time for a podcast!

After a long delay, the podcast is back with another fresh hot episode!

Boy, did we have a lot to cover: the end of the Predators season, Pekka Rinne’s Vezina Trophy win, the 2018 NHL draft, development camp, the looming free agency period, and plenty else. It was a lot to fit into one episode, so OTF writer Eric Dunay joined me to make sure we didn’t forget anything.

Inside you’ll find:

  • A rant about enjoying sports and finding success where you can
  • Plenty of discussion on the Predators very brief 2018 draft, including Eric’s favorite draftee Vladislav Yeryomenko
  • Eric gave us his impression of development camp so far, including players that stood out.
  • Why did the Preds trade their 3rd round pick?
  • Potential free agent possibilities, including Calvin de Haan and Dylan Demelo— but let’s be honest, they are probably going to sign David Perron and Toby Enstrom.
  • What does a potential conversation with James Neal and David Poile look like now?
  • Potential trade targets for the Preds (hint: HERE COMES THE STORY OF A HURRICANNNNNE)/

All that and plenty more, including Eric’s hot take on a surprising team for 2018-19 (it’s not the Ottawa Senators).
