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 right?  Listen and decide for yourself, maybe even drop a comment or question like Dallas Johnson.  Dallas, we thank you for the question, and hopefully we answered it to your liking.  Keep those questions coming.  Last week we talked about expansion and relocation, and it continues this week as Eugene Melnyk, in a round about way, threw his own team into the mix.  That and Kyle Turris blames him for his move to Nashville.  We close out with some trade talk around the league, but mainly focused on James Neal, and finally we have the Zarley Zalapski inspired Add One!  Come on in and warm up with some great hockey conversation!!  Welcome to the Two Man Forecheck.
