C4 - a CHB podcast

New Year, New Results? – January 3, 2015

For episode 37 of C4, Matt and Clay kick off the new year by looking back at the Canucks’ 3-2 loss the Kings on New Year’s Day, and look ahead to the upcoming weeks. In particular, they explore whether or not the Canucks will avoid the downward spiral of last year at this time.

Hear new takes on old classics like Hansen the Honey Badger (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer), Radim Vrbata (Feliz Navidad), Get it Bo!

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Welcome Home Edition

The Vancouver Canucks return from their longest road trip of the season with 7 out of a possible 14 points. After a great start to the road trip the Canucks staggered home with three straight losses. Despite the name of our latest C4 podcast, no one is panicking…yet. However, the mini-slump does raise a few questions. Here a few Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Are the Canucks who we thought they were? Well, I guess it depends on who you thought they were. There’s a certain portion of the Canucks fan base – let’s call them the optimists –...

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: Extrapolation Edition

After 6 games, Kevin Bieksa and Shawn Matthias are -6 and Jannik Hansen is -5. At this rate, the math suggests – even if logic does not – that Bieksa and Matthias will finish at -60 and Hansen -50. This obviously won’t happen. At least it better not.

Top 10 Ways the Canucks Can Start a New Sellout Streak

As the Canucks adjust to new personnel on and off the ice, fans in this market are still not sure what to make of the team. Ultimately, the fans will speak with their wallets and it will be very interesting to see what the crowds at Rogers Arena are going to be like for the next few weeks. With your help, I’ve compiled the Top 10 Ways the Vancouver Canucks can start a new sellout streak.

Canucks Haiku: Unleashing the Power of the 5-7-5

I’ve always appreciated a good haiku. Maybe it’s because I’m half-Japanese (Imoo – pronounced “E-mo” and not “I-moo” – is a Japanese name). Or perhaps it’s because it’s a relatively easy poem to write with its simple structure of 17 syllables broken into lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Regardless, the haiku has always resonated with me.

Plan the Parade Route – October 13, 2014

After two games, the Vancouver Canucks are still undefeated (haha) and are sitting atop the Pacific Division. For this special Thanksgiving edition of the C4 podcast (our 27th episode), Clay is joined by Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Province to talk about the Canucks’ good start.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm: New Player Edition

In his first forays with the Sedins, Radim Vrbata has looked very comfortable playing with the twins. Like extremely comfortable. As if he was a third Sedin brother.  They seem to have a natural chemistry on the ice.  And there is nothing wrong with adding a shooter to a line that has Henrik as its centre.

Clay’s Canucks Composition: I’ll Show Glove to You (Boyz II Men Parody)

For the start of the Vancouver Canucks’ 2014-2015 NHL season, I wrote a song about likely their strongest position on the team: the goaltenders. I’ve written songs about Canucks goalies in the past, including End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu) and Against All Odds (Luongo’s Lament) so I thought I would continue the tradition.
