The bye-week nonsense is here and while all the NHL players are down in Mexico drinking on fancy watercraft, we’re stuck without any games!
P Mac, Geeta and Ryan join you this week to discuss Jason Spezza being a healthy scratch. The latest in the motivational tactics given to rookies this season, with Brent Seabrook being a healthy scratch this month in Chicago.
They discuss the bye-weeks in the NHL, as the Canucks are now on theirs after knocking off Columbus and Minnesota in impressive fashion. As the team gets healthier, could these rare and unusual wins become a more common occurrence?
They take a look at the nobodies and former Vancouver Canucks sprinkled throughout the Canadian Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey team, from Mason Raymond to old Willie D himself! They also discuss Nikolay Goldobin being sent down to Utica. Is he being sent down just to keep the legs fresh? Or has he lost his roll on the team?
They discuss the latest player wanting out of Arizona, Anthony Duclair. He heads to Chicago at a bargain price as the problems continue for the Coyotes. How much longer will they last in Arizona, where they’re constantly taking one step forward and three steps back.
Finally, they discuss Vegas’ home ice advantage, Geeta plays F.M.K and the gang decides to buy some naming rights of defunct NHL teams.
