The Vancouver Canucks name Trevor Linden president of the team and the black clouds over Rogers Arena are instantly replaced with glowing optimism.
Ryan, Dave and P Mac get together all fired up for the mean nothing games that always fill the final weekend of the NHL regular season and the upcoming NHL Playoffs.
This week’s podcast starts with Stu Walters interviewing Portland Winterhawks’ Brendan Leipsic about his second period power play goal.
They also discuss some scary rough stuff at the end of the Victoria Royals / Portland Winterhawks second round WHL Playoff series that saw Portland’s Nic Petan and Victoria’s Joe Hicketts knocked out on the ice.
A lot of the podcast is discussing just what Trevor Linden as president can mean for the team and the fans and who could stay and could go regarding the coaching staff.
They also rattle off their picks for the first round of the playoffs if they started today, and if the series wind up the way they are, Ryan has promised to make a big bet on the Columbus Blue Jackets.
