The gang is once again recording live from the Pacific Coliseum during a huge hockey weekend in Vancouver. Dave, Sheila and Ryan sit down and chat about what’s happening this week in the world of hockey and are joined by a very special guest.
One of the Vancouver Canucks 2013 1st round draft picks (24th) Hunter Shinkaruk chats with Ryan to start the show as he caught him outside the Medicine Hat Tigers dressing room before his big game against the Giants Friday night. Hunter talks about the pressure and expectations playing in Vancouver that is in store for him. We also chat about Trevor Linden and dentistry.
The gang chats about the continuously struggling Edmonton Oilers, new brass in Buffalo and if Steven Stamkos is joining Team Canada this February at Sochi.
Ryan gives his first installment of ‘LIVE From the heartland’ in which he gives a quick run down of all the things happening with the team nobody cares about, the St. Louis Blues.
Later in the show, we have our first ‘Mystery Box’ segment in which everyone came to the show with a secret topic to talk about. Dave talks about Jim Balsillie ruining Blackberry AND almost ruining Canada’s chances of a new NHL team. Ryan discusses the WHA restart in 2004 during the NHL lockout that fell absolutely flat and Sheila was unable to think about a topic, but discusses her ongoing love and appreciation for Big 44 Todd Bertuzzi.
All this and more on this week’s Pucks on net! Enjoy everybody
