Episode 0087: Theodore Signs, Twitter Poll Results, Goaltender Pad Rules, Top 4 Metro And Pacific Teams, Mike’s Predictions, Bruins Moves And So Much More!

The NHL Season is less than 48 hours away.  We at the Forecheck are celebrating vividly with another rendition of the Two Man Forecheck.

Shea Theodore has come back to the fold, signing a 7 year, 36.4-million-dollar contract with Vegas.  Is he really happy with this deal or did he just want to play hockey?  Either way, the Golden Knights are thrilled he is back.

The Twitter Polls are out and completed.  Last week we asked which rookie would have the best second season.  With 63% of the vote, Kyle Conner was the winner, but are the results too one-sided? Should the percentages have been closer?  Second place Will Butcher would agree with that.

The latest poll asks which of the last 4 teams standing last year will get out to the hottest start?  The poll indicates that Winnipeg and Tampa Bay will, but the week isn’t over yet.

The discussion on goaltender pads took us in directions we had not anticipated.  Goal scoring, pugilism, the number of officials on the ice and many other factors entered the discussion before it was over.  We’d love some opinions on this topic.

The Forecheckers make their selections for top 4 in the Metropolitan and Pacific divisions, and as usual, Mike has to throw a monkey wrench into the works and kick up some dust with one of his picks.  Let us know what you think.

Finally, we talk about the Bruins and their final moves as well as some other prospects and young players that fill out the roster.

A full slate to be sure, let us know what you think and keep voting on those polls.

Enjoy the show!
