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? And if that topic wasn’t hot enough, they also discuss Sven Baertschi’s return to the IR with post-concussion symptoms and what that might mean for his season, let alone his career.

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.
Chris, Adam and Matt take a moment to recognize the NHL All-Star game & the escapades of former co-host Clay Imoo down in San Jose. The boys also discuss the recent trade between the Los Angeles Kings and the Toronto Maple Leafs that had Jake Muzzin off to T Dot and whether Tanev was ever in the mix. And what’s a podcast episode without Elias Pettersson chatter?
Anna, Adam and Matt discuss the pressing issue of our times – are they Team Tank or Team Playoffs. They also talk about Demko’s impact on the Canucks goalie situation for the remainder of the season, Pettersson’s return to the lineup, and how development situation looks.
Anna and Matt find themselves in the studio to talk about the “code,” what might be Luongo’s last appearance in Vancouver, when Pettersson might return and provide their best 3 and worst 3 Canucks so far this season.
Chris, Adam, Anna and Matt get together virtually for the first episode of 2019 to talk about the World Junior hockey tournament, Elias Pettersson’s injury (and potential return to the ice later this week), the Mike McKenna era in Vancouver, and whether or not Edler gets a plane ticket outta here.
As the Canucks and podcast head into the holidays, Anna, Chris & Matt talk about the recent unbeaten streak. This compels Matt to ask the question – are the Canucks now buyers come 2019?! They also pick apart the comparison of Pettersson to McDavid and decide how to stitch the C on to Bo Horvat’s chest.
Matt and Adam are here to talk the dynamic duo of Pettersson and Boeser, if they’re a long-term fit and if the Canucks losing close games is a good thing or a bad thing.
Adam, Anna, Chris & Matt get together in a “new” studio to talk all things Canucks, specifically how they feel about Brendan Leipsic moving on to the Los Angeles Kings via the waiver wire. They also channel their inner “Bob & Doug McKenzie” as they talk about the arrival of Josh Leivo from Toronto, give the upcoming World Junior tournament a preview, and their lengthy thoughts on Nylander’s new contract.
The studio is still gone, but that didn’t stop Anna, Chris & Matt from getting together virtually to put together a new episode. The gang discusses Brock Boeser’s imminent return and wonder if he’s possibly being brought back too early. They also try to figure out who goes back to Utica when the injury bay begins to empty – has Gagner done enough to stay?
