Episode 0068: IIHF World Championship, Vegas Wins the West, ‘Canes May Have a Sale, Voynov Returning, Joel Bouchard Named Head Coach, Camp Dates Announced, Mudbugs and Force are Champions!

IIHF World Championships are over. No North American Team has won gold. The Americans finished in 3, with the Swedes and Swiss taking the top two spots respectively. What happened to the North Americans? Do the Europeans have a winning game plan or is it just the size of the rink? We discuss at length. Bob McKenzie has tweeted out that everyone on the ‘Canes is available except Sebastian Aho, but are any players worth looking at right now? The Forecheckers bandy about a few names that might...


Episode 0067: Vegas’ No. 1 D-Man, Kyle Dubas Hired in Toronto, Brind’Amour hired in Carolina, Kempny Fined, Jim Matheson Tweeting, Brad Marchand and How Great Teams are Built!

The Two Man Forecheck are back at it after a Mothers’ day off. Tonight we stretched our legs a bit and discussed topics to get you thinking. For starters…who is the number one defenseman for the Vegas Golden Knights? We posit a theory. The Maple Leafs have themselves a new, young GM, Kyle Dubas. An in-house hire of sorts, but is he going to have the power necessary to do the job or will he be a sock puppet for Shanahan and Babcock? The Hurricanes hired a new head coach…someone they know,...

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the Two Man Forecheck!

Same for the front office, who appear to have...


Episode 0065: Surprising Golden Knights, Wild Fire Their GM, Flames President Burke Retires, Playoff Drama, Rask and Marchand, Kane Suspended, More Award Nominees, and Predictions

Avengers Infinity War is the reason for the late start this morning but there is plenty to discuss on this week’s Two Man Forecheck! We start this show off talking about everyone’s favorite subject…The Vegas Golden Knights. Surprising first loss after 5 straight playoff wins and it took double overtime and an overturned Vegas goal.

Discussing what is wrong with a Capitals team that hasn’t been to a Conference final since 1998. Josh Morrissey...

The playoffs have begun, and there have been a few surprises. Ken Hitchcock has retired from the NHL. We here at the Two Man Forecheck wish him the best in his future endeavors, as he will be staying on wth the Stars in a front office capacity. The Stars have much work to do depth-wise and Ken will be able to help in that area. There have been suspensions in the playoffs. Kadri’s was deserved, Doughty’s could have gone either way. The physical level has stepped up this season and the...

Episode 0056: Breaking Rick Nash News, The Olympics, Marco Sturm, The Trade Deadline and What’s Still to Come Around the League

Hello Everyone and Welcome! To steal a line from Michael Buffer…”Let’s Get Ready to Rumble!!”. The Two Man Forecheck began this week’s show with breaking news just before the red record light came on…Rick Nash became a Bruin. The Forecheckers discuss and commiserate over the acquisition. How much was paid and overpaid. Other possibilities rather than Rick Nash. To bring things to a positive side, we change topics to the Olympics. How impressive were the women!

Hello all! One more week til our one year anniversary episode, but first the Forecheckers start out this week with a deep discussion of the new majority owner of the Carolina Hurricanes and his wishes for the fan base of the franchise. His (apparent) somewhat hands off approach to the talent will give him the opportunity to give time to improving the experience for Hurricanes fans, along with his commitment to the Raleigh area. We then delve into a discussion about the surprise statistical...
