After a one week absence due to the flu with a stomach bug chaser for The Offwing, the Forecheckers are back with another rivetting episode packed with local team discussions among other topics. Start with the Boston Bruins and their not so impressive loss at Vancouver. We knock around ideas as to why this happened and the possibility of this pattern continuing. We then move on to one of the most underrated tournaments, the Boston Beanpot Tournament. B.C., B.U., Northeastern and Harvard play...


Episode 0054: John Tavares, Mike Green, Jack Johnson and the Trade Deadline, Tampa Bay and the Deadline, Las Vegas’ Trademark, Mike Fisher, Zdeno Chara and Add One!

Episode 54, also known as Year 2 Week 2, sees the Forecheckers venturing into the recent past with an exciting discussion about the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Celebrate with us the players that were not only taken in the first round, but the late picks such as Connor Hellebuyck who are now succeeding. Could this be the best draft since 2003? Isn’t it fun to hash out. We also talk trade deadline and how it would affect the decision of one John Tavares to stay with his current club. How will Jack...

Which did we like? Who surprised us? Listen and find out. We then move to a frank conversation about Jim Benning and the Vancouver Canucks. Is it his fault that the Canucks are in the position they are in? Based on the article we quote, it is, but we feel differently. Are the New York Rangers...

Here it is, our one year anniversary! What a trip its been so far! For today’s show the Forecheckers discussed the possibility (or lack thereof) of the Boston Bruins moving Torey Krug, Adam McQuaid or both. And for good measure, could they possibly move Ryan Spooner? Mike and Chris offer differing opinions. We then stretch out the discussion to include who should be buying and who should be selling their wares. Spoiler alert: Arizona appears on one of these lists. The conversation turns...


Episode 0051: Hurricanes New Majority Owner, Surprise Statistics, The Duclair Trade & Its Effect on Chicago and Arizona and the TMF Poll Question!

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...

Happy New Year Everybody! Welcome to Episode 50…two weeks away from our first anniversary! We break in the new year with the anti-injury report.

From this nice early present to the NHL we discuss our biggest surprises. Surprise! Mike and Chris don’t agree.

Episode 0047: Injuries Pile Up, Penguins Win 3…A Good Thing?, The Mailbag, Ottawa’s Owner and GM Sound Off, Trade Talk and Add One!

Just in time for the final week before Christmas, The Forecheckers come at you with another jam packed episode. Speaking of jam packed, the injured lists around the NHL are filling up like children’s gift lists. We talk about the possible reasons why the current rash has taken place. One thing on Jim Rutherford and the Pittsburgh Penguins’ wish list is another Stanley Cup, but would this be a good thing for the NHL? Mike offers his three-prong answer while Chris just says “no”, but who’s...


Episode 0046: Dirty Joe Thornton and Others, Rivalries in the NHL, The Sale of Carolina, The Expansion in Seattle, Americans on the Bruins and Add One!

With one of the Forecheckers down due to illness, the podcast got a late start this week, but is as exciting as ever. We start out with a discussion on the dirtiness (is that a word) of Joe Thornton. He’s been suspended before, but was his hit on T.J. Oshie dirty? And what of other “dirty” players in the NHL? Are there ways of reducing the number of dirty hits and tactics in the NHL? Hint…don’t eliminate fighting. We then transition to the sale of the Carolina Hurricanes. One of the...


Episode 0045: The Latest NHL Trade, Fixing the Red Wings, All Star Captains, Ovechkin Keepin’ On, Evander Kane, NHL Expansion and the Houston Franchise, The Future Salary Cap and 7 Bruins Defensemen

The Forecheckers discuss the latest trade in the NHL, one that most believe to be a win for both teams, but do we think this is the case? We transition to the Detroit Red Wings and their current situation. Could either of the players involved in the trade help here. Chris and Mike discuss possible solutions to the problem. From here we delve deep into the pool of All Star Captains. Who are the usual suspects? Could some well deserving players get the fat end of the goalie stick? And is it...


Episode 0044: Biggest Surprises at the Quarter Pole, Iginla and the Spengler Cup, A Big Trade in the WHL, Boston Prospects and Add One!

Hello everyone! We’ve reached the quarter pole around the league and there are quite a few surprises that, we would guess, not many people predicted. The Forecheckers talk about their 3 biggest surprises thus far this season. It also appears that Jarome Iginla may be playing in the Spengler Cup, an ice hockey tournament held in Davos, Switzerland and believed to be the oldest ice hockey tournament in the world. Could he possibly use this tournament as a stepping stone back into the NHL for...
