Marek & Friedman: Nashville's Filip Forsberg Conundrum
January 14 2022
Elliotte joins Jeff to chat about Elias Pettersson's struggles, and how the Canucks need to figure out how to get him going (0:19). Next, they touch on the Flames' tough loss to the Senators and how flat the team looked (4:04). Then the guys head to Boston to give their thoughts on Tuukka Rask's successful season debut, before pivoting to the Islanders' win over the Devils, and whether the team has a chance to put itself back into playoff contention (8:51). The two discuss whether the Predators are the real deal, what David Poile may do with Filip Forsberg amid negotiations with the forward, and what Juuse Saros has done in Nashville (15:31). They finish with a chat about Vezina Trophy voting, a story from the year the Jim Gregory (GM of the Year) Award was introduced, and confirmation regarding Jeff's Marchand-Krug-puck anecdote (21:24).The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliate.
