Episode #138 – The Burrows Show

Alex Burrows spent twelve season with the Vancouver Canucks, gave his heart and soul to the team, the fans and the city…and got dealt to Ottawa for a surprisingly nice return!

Full bench on the podcast this week. Ryan, Dave, P Mac and Geeta discuss the big Burrows trade which sent him to Ottawa, with an extension, in exchange for Jonathan Dahlen Monday afternoon, what this means for the Canucks’ rebuild and if there are more deals to done by Jim Benning, a man who has appeared to have won over some of his critics.

Dave takes the side of Senators fans. Why are they giving up a hot young prospect for a grizzled vet with only 9 goals this year? And will they actually be able to make a run in the playoffs with the team they have assembled? Canucks fans are applauding the deal, while Senators fans are calling BS in the nation’s capital.

They also discuss the big mumps outbreak in Vancouver, how it could have originated and how it’s spreading to other NHL teams, mainly the Minnesota Wild. Is it all Luca Sbisa’s fault? Or does the blame lay in Medicine Hat?

Finally, the gang discusses the other big trades in the NHL this week, Brian Boyle being shipped to Toronto and Marin Hanzal to Minnesota. What does this mean for Hansen’s trade value? The gang also discusses the ongoing arena problems and Ryan and Dave’s upcoming travels!

Episode #137 – Heat Of The Moment

Antoine Vermette wasn’t happy with how the puck was being dropped, so he told the linesman in the worst possible way!

Ryan Dave and Geeta join you this week to discuss the mandatory 10 game suspension for Anaheim’s Vermette after a very odd situation last week vs Minnesota. Is the mandatory warranted? Or should it be reduced?

Ryan talks about going to the Canucks game vs. Calgary, watching Nikita Tryamkin hopping over the boards and how the Calgary Flames jerseys are the ugliest in the league, almost as ugly as that long goal Edler put past Brian Elliott.

They also discuss career minor leaguer Colin Chaulk’s unfortunate jersey retirement ceremony in Fort Wayne, discuss Jake Virtanen’s development in Utica and whether Brock Boeser can find his way into a Canucks jersey next month… or a Comets jersey?

The gang also discusses Ryan Johansen’s pissy return to Columbus and how he was upset there was no ‘welcome home’ feature on the jumbrotron. They also discuss the Montreal Canadiens’ “window” to win the Stanley Cup, or lack there of and whether it’s a good idea to sell the farm or not to try and win it all this year.

Episode #136 – Homeless in San Jose

If you’re a head coach in the NHL, chances are you’ve been fired! And if you play for the San Jose Sharks, there’s a 65% chance you’ll be mistaken for a homeless person.

Geeta, Dave and Ryan join you this week to discuss Claude Julien being relieved of his head coaching duties by the Boston Bruins. Was this the right move? Is it the coaching or the roster that need to be changed?

They look at all four (so far…) head coach firings in the NHL and how the teams have rebounded. And for the most part, it’s been quite positive.

They discuss Anton Rodin being shut down for the season, Brendan Gaunce’s AHL point production and Loui Eriksson’s humungous contract. They’re also incredibly thankful Bo Horvat didn’t break anything this weekend.

Washington’s incredibly hot streak and point production also come up. Can a team so perfect on paper finally do what it takes to make it out of the second round? Or will a red hot goalie or a kid named Sid get in their way?

Finally, the gang discusses Brent Burns ROCKET to the top of the NHL point leaders standings. At time of recording, just two points behind Connor McDavid, does Brent deserve the Hart? Maybe the Norris? Hell, can he win the ART ROSS?! If the homeless look is the reason for all this, never shave again, Brent!

Episode #135 – Iggy and the Colorado Stooges

Yet another blizzard has hit Vancouver, there’s a full bench on the podcast this week and Ryan, Geeta, P Mac and Dave are talkin’ Colorado, Hitchcock (Ken not Alfred) and a whole lot more!

They’re talking about the finally healthy Florida Panthers, Ryan’s playoffs fringe team of the week. The additions of Huberdeau and Barkov to the line up, the Panthers look set to make a run for the post season and a moral victory for the fancy stats folk!

Ryan also comes loaded with TV ratings. The American NHL teams with the highest regional ratings, the biggest change from last year and the teams with viewership dropping like flies and what this could mean to quite possibly the most boring Stanley Cup Final ever, Columbus vs Minnesota. They also look at the Vancouver Canucks’ regional TV ratings on Rogers Sportsnet and look at comparable ratings of other TV shows.

They also talk about Ken Hitchcock getting fired by the St. Louis Blues, their transition to Mike Yeo and just how and why this change went down. What were some of the problems in St. Louis and where will they go from here?

Jarome Iginla and the Colorado trade bait are a big talking point this week. With the NHL trade deadline expected to be a complicated and busy mess, the Avalanche are looking to rebuild, and which NHL playoff contenders are ready to sell the farm for the likes of a Matt Duchene or an old man Iginla?

Finally, they talk about the slumping Canucks and NHL teams’ LGBTQ ambassadors and Brad Marchand’s comments about NHL locker rooms welcoming openly gay athletes (don’t worry, it was very positive!)
