Episode #177 – Ottawa Is Sinking, Karlsson Don’t Wanna Swim


One more week to enter our Brock Boeser jersey contest!

On the eve of the NHL Trade Deadline, Rick Nash is a Boston Bruin, Derick Brassard heads to greener Penguin pastures and they continue to debate the trade value of Thomas Vanek.

On the show this week, they discuss Rick Nash becoming a Boston Bruin, the rather high price they paid for an aging forward who’s best years are possibly behind him. What does this mean for Boston and for Jarome Iginla, who was practicing with the Providence Bruins recently?

They also discuss the Canucks’ deadline day, Jacob Markstrom’s ups and downs and an alternate universe where next season, Thatcher Demko would backup Roberto Luongo.

They look at Derick Brassard’s impressive playoff point production, what his addition means for the Penguins’ desires to three-peat and what it will take to take on the arms race rumours involving the Tampa Bay Lighting and Erik Karlsson.

Finally, they touch on the Olympics. The exciting NHL-free tournament and one hell of a gold medal game between Canada and the USA womens teams.


Listen to this week’s 5 Minutes for Paying for our $5+ Patreon backers. They answer Twitter questions, discuss their reservations with Erik Gudbranson and talk Olympics some more.

Episode #176 – 176 – Check The O.A.R, You Like It So Far?


Have you entered our Brock Boeser jersey contest yet? Listen to find out how to win!

The Olympic Athletes from Russia are turning heads in South Korea, the Canadian team of ham and eggers aren’t nearly as dominant as one would expect and a very small portion of the country is watching at that hour!

Ryan, P Mac and Geeta gather on a rare Sunday PON brunchcast to discuss Jim Benning’s three year extension as GM of the Vancouver Canucks. A divided Palatial Estate discusses the pros and cons of such a move.

They also discuss the unusual Dion Phaneuf for Marian Gaborik trade Los Angeles and Ottawa made. If they made this trade 8 or 9 years ago, it would have been a huge deal. In 2018, it’s trading off bad contract for bad contract. An albatross exchange!

On the subject of the Senators, they discuss Eugene Melnyk’s odd new position, the organization willing to trade away Erik Karlsson and whether they could be gearing up to move the team in the middle of the night.

They discuss Loui Eriksson’s bad deal, who they would exchange his bad contract for in return for another player with a bad contract, discuss Thomas Vanek’s trade value and get ready as the Vancouver Canucks approach a very important trade deadline.

Listen to this week’s 5 Minutes for Paying for our $5+ Patreon backers. Geeta gets a hair in her birthday brunch omelette, the gang discusses which movies scarred them as children and their stressed out sleeping habits.

Episode #175 – Whiskey Drinkers ‘N No Trade Clauses


Jacob Markstrom is getting shutouts, but he’s also beefing with Vancouver media for misquoting him.

Geeta, P Mac and Ryan join you this week to discuss Alex Burrows’ 10 game suspension for kneeing Taylor Hall in the head. Burrows’ did not appeal it and this one of the more dangerous and serious things the former Canuck has done in his career.

They also discuss Jacob Markstrom’s up’s and downs. From being misquoted and sounding like he threw his team under the bus (he didn’t) and bouncing back following a team meeting to get a shutout.

They also discuss PK Subban’s visit in Montreal and some heated moments with former teammate Brendan Gallagher. Following Saturday’s game, it’s safe to say we know who wasn’t a fan of PK in the Habs dressing room.

They discuss their 10 team No Trade Clause lists, Canucks trades they wish they could reverse and answer some other great Twitter questions

They’re also giving away a Brock Boeser jersey! Want to enter? Listen to the show and find out how!

P Mac, Ryan and PON Black Ace Simon join you this week to discuss Mike Fisher and the Nashville Predators. They also talk about the New York Rangers’ putting a plethora of veteran talent and leadership up on the trade block. Where will Rick Nash wind up THIS time?

They also discuss the Sedins looking to extend their careers in Vancouver. If it’s worth it and for how much? They also keep a keen eye on the Calder Trophy race as Mathew Barzal’s point production is heating up, but while Brock Boeser is scoring really really pretty goals for the Canucks sending their fans home happy in inevitable losses?

They’re look at the new measures the new owner of the Carolina Hurricanes is rolling out to win the fans over, create new ones and a much more fan friendly team, and holy crap, look at that, Phil Kessel is second in NHL scoring, how the hell did that happen?

Finally, the boys discuss their favourite games they ever went to in person and look at the the 13 possible names of the Seattle expansion team.


Listen to this week’s 5 Minutes for Paying for our $5+ Patreon backers. The boys discuss Kid Rock (again?), Gudbranson’s future and or replacement and Ryan and Geeta’s evening at Rodney’s Oysters in Yaletown.
