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.

Twenty six episodes in and C4 is on the precipice of a new Vancouver Canucks hockey season!
With Chris and Matt in studio and Clay on the phone, it’s time to recap the preseason and determine who makes the final roster – someone says Horvat!
It’s episode 25 of C4 and Clay rejoins Chris and Matt for their silver anniversary! The boys partake in the tried and true custom of pre-season prognostication as they pick apart what they’ve seen so far, and begin to formulate who they think makes the big roster for the start of the season.
Chris and Matt connect for episode 24 of C4 and are joined by special guest Bruce Dowbiggin to chat about his new book Ice Storm: The Rise and Fall of the Greatest Vancouver Canucks Team Ever, “the incendiary inside story behind the Canucks’ meteoric ascent and tragic collapse.” Bruce gives us insight in how the book to came to be, reveals what he feels took the team to the peak of success and also gives us a hint on what caused it all to fall apart.
Chris, Clay and Matt reunite for the 23rd episode of C4 and chat everything Young Stars related. Is Bo Horvat really Wayne Gretzky in disguise? What does Dane Fox say? In a world of Chris Tanev, where does Frankie Corrado fit in? And does Nicklas Jensen really care? Like… does he really care?
Joining a solo Matt Lee on C4 (while Chris and Clay are still on hiatus) is Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Province and CHBs own J.J. Guerrero to chat about the upcoming prospects camps and Young Stars tournament. With training camp around the corner, you can learn everything you want about Bo Horvat to Cole Cassells, Jake Virtanen to Frankie Corrado. Heck, they even chat about Brendan Gaunce! Prospecting the Camps – September 7, 2014
Fresh on the tail of free agent frenzy, Kelcey Brade from the CTV Sports Vancouver joined Chris, Clay and Matt to discuss how the team fared in their plunge into the pool of free agents in the 21st episode of C4. They start off by covering the position that never goes to sleep – goaltending – and give their thoughts on Ryan Miller signing with the Canucks.
In the special 20th episode (nearly two months in the making), Scott Rintoul from the TEAM 1040 swung by to join Chris, Clay and Matt to talk a little puck. With “Trader” Jim Benning in charge, Scott and the boys discuss the Kesler and Garrison trades, how the Canucks fared at the NHL draft with two first-round picks, what to expect the Canucks to be after during free agent frenzy, and everything else in between! And as always, they wrap things up with #AskCHB and Canucks Hakiu. Change Is Coming – June 30, 2014
Having spent the past month mourning the dreadful collapse of the Vancouver Canucks during the first quarter of 2014, the boys break radio silence to discuss a couple “happenings” since seasons end. Chris, Clay and Matt get their chat on about Gillis’ legacy and who they think might replace him (rhymes with Henning). They also kick around why Linden gassed Tortorella and Sullivan, yet kept Gulutzan and Melanson. And last but not least, the boys get riled up about who will be the next coach “hired to be fired.” And it wouldn’t be a podcast without a little #AskCHB and...
Back from his wedding, Chris joins Clay and Matt and they immediately get back into the swing of things by chatting about “A Season Like No Other.” The “boat” is barely afloat – Dallas is firing what could be the final torpedo as we post – and this week the captain and admiral seem to be at odds. We chat about Gillis’ interview and admission his job may not be safe, Tortorella’s genuine response and we imagine would could have been. And as always, we have our #AskCHB and Haiku segments to bring a smile to your face. A Season...
