The dog days of the preseason are here and tickets to those preseason games are cheap cheap cheap! There’s also a new mascot in Edmonton but the PON gang has a couple suggestions after Hunter the Lynx is unveiled to less than stellar reviews.
Another full bench on the podcast this week. Dave, Geeta, P Mac and Ryan gather in Geeta’s palatial estate to talk all about the anticlimactic final of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. Did we ever doubt Canada would win it? No. Was it exciting? Not really. Can they improve it for the alleged 2020 World Cup Of Hockey? They most certainly think so!
They take a look at the Canucks’ preseason. Demko and Subban have both been sent down to Utica, and Troy Stecher is the clear cut front runner for the Fedor Fedorov Memorial Trophy as the Canucks preseason MVP. Can he make the opening night roster? Or will he be a midseason call up?
Also on the Canucks front, the gang remembers Cody Hodgson and his controversial time with the Canucks. From meddling dads to poorly handled back injuries, his career is cut short as he retires at 26 to work with the Nashville Predators.
Finally, Ryan plays a game of real or fake North American Major Junior or Professional hockey teams with Geeta, Dave and Paul. Play along at home!
