Episode 0074: NHL Free Agency 2018! The Silly Season Has Begun, Tavares and the Leafs, O’Reilly and the Blues, David Perron, Bruins Development Camp and So Much More!

The Free Agent silly season has begun.  John Tavares has gone home, Paul Stastny has gone to Vegas, and quality, top line defensemen are hard to come by.

We start with the big signing…Tavares to Toronto.  But was this the best move or the move that Toronto should have made?  The Forecheckers have an opinion on this, and Maple Leaf fans might not agree with us. 

We talk about the signings for the Boston Bruins…John Moore and Jaroslav Halak.  Halak can be good, really good, but can also be really bad.  If he wraps his head around the backup role, then this may be a good fit.  John Moore becomes the 8thdefenseman on the squad…who is the odd man out?

We throw in a little 1996 draft talk as both Chara and Matt Cullen are the only remaining members from that draft to still be playing in the league.

St. Louis has defined insanity by bringing back David Perron for a third go-round, and may possibly have paid a huge price for Ryan O’Reilly but is this all going to work out for them?

Finally, we delve into Bruins Development Camp and highlight a few players that stood out to us.  Who were your favorites?

As always, please tell us how you feel about what is happening during the silly season and we will be sure to talk about it!

Until next time…keep listening and enjoy!
