The NHL All-Star game has come and gone, it was slow and boring and nobody seemed to enjoy themselves! But Don Cherry likes Justin Bieber’s back checking, so there’s that.
Ryan, Geeta, Dave and his visiting sister Jennifer are on the bench this week. They discuss the aftermath of the 2017 NHL All-Star Game in Los Angeles, Snoop Dogg’s F-Bombs, Justin Bieber’s run in with Chris Pronger and the pageantry of the game itself.
They also play Don Cherry’s very accurate comments on the game’s calibre of play during a rather lively Coach’s Corner. Don didn’t care for the action and neither did most watching at home. Ryan provides side by side comparisons of how the game was broadcasted to in Canada and the United States as well.
They also discuss the NHL 100, the 100 best NHL players of the past 100 years, all the current Chicago Blackhawks and the snubs of active players. Jarome Iginla and Gino Malkin quickly come to mind.
The Vancouver Canucks embarrassing 3-0 loss to Arizona is also discussed. From the Canucks setting a new NHL record for longest amount of play without a shot, to their plans at the trade deadline, things look bleak for Vancouver. Will they head down to Colorado and start buying?
There’s also some mad Nikita Tryamkin praise and some concern for the New York Islanders, who come the 2018-19 NHL season, will be homeless as the Barclay’s Center has had enough!
