The conversation started with our poll of the week and quickly progressed into discussing who of the AHL call-ups might stick around as the Avalanche begin to get healthy again. The consensus is that Ben Meyers is the realistic choice, but most want to see Foudy get some time.
Another topic that popped up this week involved an interview Matt Duchene gave on the Empty Netters Podcast about his trade to the Senators that Evan could only describe as "bizarre."
Talking Matt Duchene transitioned nicely into a discussion with our guest Bryan Bastin about the outlook and current state of the Nashville Predators. He made an interesting observation and point in mentioning that making the playoffs in last year's campaign may have hurt the Preds.
@BryanBastin made an intriguing suggestion on today’s cast. Did sneaking into the playoffs last season actually hurt the franchise?— Mile High Hockey Lab (@MHH_LAB) December 16, 2022

We also took the time to discuss Eeli Tolvanen's odd departure from the Predators organization. It seems like they allowed a promising prospect to walk for nothing in return.
My (@AdoHernandez27) ridiculous analogy for the Tolvanen situation. @tigervixxxen with the assist lol— Mile High Hockey Lab (@MHH_LAB) December 16, 2022
Seems like the Preds let a young talent walk for nothing in return, leaving us all wondering.#GoAvsGo #Preds pic.twitter.com/DoRXxGf7up
