With Matt away on assignment, Chris and Clay go mobile as they chat about the positive impact (you read that right) Zack Kassian had this weekend. They also talk about the Jekyll and Hyde ways of this Canucks squad and wonder if Bo Horvat isn’t due a promotion.

DJ Dave Levinson, former of the Vancouver Canucks, joins Chris, Matt and Clay to talk music and what it meant during his spin with the team. The podcast also reflects on the acquisition of Adam Clendenning, Ronalds Kenis unseating Zack Kassian… and the Super Bowl.
J.J., the blogfather of the Smylosphere, joins Chris and Matt to chat about the Canucks after the allstar break and to give his thoughts after the 4-0 loss to the Ducks. He also gets Chris fired up over his support of Zack Kassian and gives his two cents on what is needed to fix the team.
In episode 42 of C4, Matt and Clay examine the importance of the Canucks’ upcoming six-game homestand as they look to nail down a playoff berth.
After Chris made his bold prediction that the Canucks would go oh-fer on this road trip, the team posted back-to-back shut out wins. In an effort to figure out what to expect with tonight’s game against the Panthers and another tomorrow against the Lightning, they pick apart the two games and figure out what has changed.
It’s episode 40 of C4 and Matt kicks it off by asking Chris if it’s time to panic. According to Chris, the timeline is definitely dark enough to think so.
Episode 38 of C4 is live with Matt and Clay chatting about the Smylosphere topic of the year (so far) – Roberto Luongo’s return to Vancouver. Does Luongo receive cheers from an adoring crowd? Or do “boos” instead of “loos” rain down from the upper bowl? And is either deserved?
Not only does Episode 36 have Chris returning to the podcast after a one-week hiatus, it’s his return that single-handedly broke the Canucks losing streak. Or something like that. Chris and Matt, sans Clay, discuss the Canucks streak-breaking win over the Calgary Flames and share what went through their minds when Jannik Hansen collapsed on the bench. And with only one game left before the holiday break, it seemed to be the perfect opportunity to not only discuss the World Juniors tournament, but also to “rumourmonger” potential Canucks trades. All that and more in the Christmas episode of C4. The...
Episode 35 has the Canucks not only back at home, but missing their early season mojo and rolling along with a four-game losing streak. And not to be left out, even Chris has gone missing leaving Matt and Clay to discuss all that matters with hockey in Vancouver. Today’s chatter ranges from goaltending to Superskills, a shellacking by the Rangers and a porous defence. And to tie up the episode in a nice little bow is a discussion on whether or not Horvat will make Canada’s World Junior team – or even if the Canucks will let him try out....
With the Canucks on the road for the better part of two-and-a-half weeks, back-to-back losses in Ontario are fresh on their mind and the pessimistic Matt and Chris are in need of all the optimism Clay can muster.
