The Preseason is coming to an end as the Wildcats took on the Titan last Saturday and came close but ultimately lost 5-4 in OT. We saw the roster had been finalized and then we were surprised by a late release Tuesday afternoon.
We get into our "View from the other bench" looking at what to expect from the Cape Breton Eagles this season and had a chat with friend of the show and voice of the Eagles Pat McNeil about the upcoming season.
Final preseason game is this Friday, will we see Fortier in the lineup?

We are getting closer to the regular season, as the Wildcats know only have 2 games left, sadly the Cats dropped the game Sunday to the Eagles 7-4, but can get back in the win column next Saturday vs Titan.
We break down our thoughts not only on the goaltending with the quick question, but also the 20 year old situation now that Fortier is back and in quaratine.
We go across the bridge for a "View from the Other Bench" and preview the Charlottetown Islanders season, how close are they this year, as well we have a chat with 20 yr old Thomas Casey on his Q career and about this season.

We are back, back again!!
Wasn't sure this day was going to come this quickly, but we're back talking hockey as we catch everyone up on the QMHJL return to play format as well as we chat about Wildcats Training Camp!
We don't have official camp rosters just yet, but we have a pretty decent idea on who will likely be here and what this season could bring to "limited" fans in the Avenir centre this year!

What a week that was for the Moncton Wildcats, the draft has come and gone which also means that it's the Season Finale of our show!
The Wildcats had a bittersweet draft as they traded away franchise cornerstone Jakob Pelletier to begin the rebuild process, which in turn netted a good return to help this rebuild and we had a chance to sit down and chat with Pelts about his time in Moncton and about the trade.
We also had a chance to chat with Ritchie Thibeau, who was the man that not only made the deal but also used those picks to bring in some talented players over the weekend.
