The 2017 Stanley Cup playoff picture is starting to take form, a log jam in the east, one, maybe two remaining spots in the west, and for the Vancouver Canucks, they’re signing randoms from the Swiss League just to make minimum roster numbers.
P Mac, Ryan and Geeta join you this week to discuss the recent stretch of Canucks home games, all disappointing losses. They discuss Willie’s continued struggles, when he will be let go and replaced before next season and why he’s still doing the same old things.
They discuss Ryan Miller’s fantastic play… in 3-0 loses, P Mac describes the scene at Rogers Arena on Saturday night vs Pittsburgh, and Ryan asks if all these illnesses are made up to give ailing players a rest?
They also discuss the surging Calgary Flames, Glen Gulutzan’s simple method to turn the Flames season around and how deep they could go in the playoffs if they remain..white hot.
The gang looks at the some potential playoff matches in the east, and discuss how the Pittsburgh Penguins, riddled with injuries, could have a big Tortorella problem in Columbus waiting for them if they fall to the 2nd or 3rd seed in the Metropolis division.
Finally, the gang discusses Aaron Ekblad’s latest concussion in what is become a serious cause for concern. They look at the hit and what it means for the Panthers’ playoff hopes.
