Is this the season of playoff upsets? And what the heck is going on in Utica?
Chris, Adam, Anna & Matt are/were live from the hot box at the Vancouver Public Library (depending on whether you tuned in via Discord as a Patron) and decompressed the end of the Canucks 2018-19 NHL campaign. They picked apart the end of season pressers, wondered what it all meant, and spent some time determining which teams they could accept winning first overall in the NHL Draft Lottery.

The entire gang gets together to talk about the newest pressing issue of the day for the Vancouver Canucks, goaltending. Isn’t it always goaltending?

With Matt away, Chris, Anna and Adam go rogue by immediately talking about the Super Bowl. They also talk about the Canucks coming out of the All-Star break and bye week with a complete win over the Avalanche, what playoff matchups look best for the Canucks, what value Brendan Sutter has on the market, and as much Luongo conversation as they can fit in.
