Episode #98 – The Curious Case of Willie D

The Hockey Night in Canada game that changed an entire season and started the tank in Vancouver…

Ryan Dave and a mid-podcast arriving P Mac are with you this week to talk hockey. Geeta joins the show on skype as well to talk about the ongoing problem of guys ‘mansplaining’ sports to her and they talk about the now infamous off air comments made by HNIC broadcasters during the Canucks and Maple Leafs game last Saturday.

They talk about Ed Belfour’s memorabilia auction to help finance his future bourbon distillery and just what items he’s hoping to gain a small fortune from selling. They give him a few marketing ideas as well.

They also talk about Taylor Hall’s critique of the Coach’s Challenge and the spotty Rexall Place wifi and compare Dennis Wideman’s suspension to Making A Murderer.

Also a quick shout out to Brady Fox of Vancouver BC who won the Bo Horvat Skate Shirsey contest! Thanks to everyone who entered!

Episode #97 – Black Skates And Heartbreak

Canucks bring back the classic skate jersey for one night only, and for one night only, they make the Maple Leafs look like an NHL team.

Ryan, Geeta and P Mac are here this week to talk about the erratic Vancouver Canucks. Following a tough loss on Hockey Night in Canada to the Toronto Marlies, you begin to wonder what the team can or will do in the two weeks before the NHL Trade Deadline.

They also look at Nazem Kadri’s actions that got him fined $5,000 by the league and compare it to Zack Kassian’s similar threat to Steven Stamkos.

Speaking of Stamkos, the rumours are swirling!! Where is he going to sign? Buffalo? Tampa Bay? Toronto or OMG OMG OMG Vancouver? There’s rumblings, cap space and a pesky ownership that wants a super star wearing blue, green and white. Where will he go?

Tough bench interviews w/ Stu Walters on the WHL on Shaw, Evander Kane’s lonely snapchat and much much more on this week’s podcast!

There’s a contest on this week’s podcast. email us the secret word that Geeta says on the podcast to win a Bo Horvat Skate jersey shirt. email us at pucksonnetca@shaw.ca to enter!

Episode #96 – Shut Your Hall of Fame Pie Hole

Pavel Bure

We have several questions, comments and concerns about retired jerseys and the Hockey Hall of Fame this week.

A full bench of PON’sters, Ryan, Dave, Geeta & P Mac are here this week to talk about the struggling Montreal Canadiens. Can anything be done to help salvage their season? Will the coach or GM go? And what will happen to Carey Price? Shut down for the season or keep awkwardly skating gingerly in that tracksuit?

On the Vancouver Canucks front, the gang talks about Jim Benning having no problems waiving old, underproducing players if he can’t get a good enough trade for them. They also talk about how many jerseys could be retired in the coming years, and quite possibly before a Stanley Cup is won.

They also talk about Ryan Miller’s 3rd period struggles and if they need to get experimental and throw Jacob Markstrom in as a closer. They also talk about the allegations and rumours regarding Jake Virtanen’s weight and what the team is doing in result of this.

Really fun podcast this week!

The NHL finally figured it out and put on an entertaining, heartwarming and exciting All-Star Weekend. Players actually wanting to be there, having fun and of course putting on a show for the kids (it’s all about the kids).

They also talk about John Scott’s “Rudy”-like weekend and experience, how well the players and fans reacted to him and the legitimately fun night at the Skills Competition.

They touch on the 2016 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in Vancouver where Ryan talked to Vancouver Giants forward Ty Ronning and London Knights forward Matthew Tkachuk before the game (Watch on our Youtube channel) and the players that stood out the most.

Dave shares a good Bobby Orr story and gives Geeta a present for giving him her Geeta’s GameCentre log in and the gang figure out just how the Canucks can sign Steven Stamkos.
