So all hell broke loose on Saturday night. Nazem Kadri delivered a dirty hit to Daniel Sedin, fights were happening left and right and oh yeah, the Canucks’ losing streak continues!
A full PON bench this week, Ryan Geeta, Dave and P Mac get together 24 hours removed from Saturday night’s brouhaha in Toronto. They weigh in on the dirty hit from Kadri to Sedin, Alex Burrows’ vicious retaliation and Erik Gudbranson’s post game comments about his desire for vigilante justice…possibly the next time these two teams play December 3rd.
After an embarrassing 8th straight loss, is Willie Desjardin’s job in jeopardy? Do the Canucks’ need a coaching change to salvage the season? Or does the only thing salvage this tough season is the highest draft pick possible next June?
They discuss where the NHL Department of Player Safety went wrong, who should have been suspended and what could have been done differently. They talk about a toned down NHL compared to decades ago, and where the style of play is headed. They also discuss how Ryan Miller became a fan favourite overnight after dropping his blocker and catcher to stand up for Troy ‘The Boy’ Stecher after he was caught up with Matt Martin.
They also name Arizona Coyotes’ forward Max Domi as ‘Dude Of The Week’ for his valiant efforts humbling Ryan Kesler Friday night. They also discuss John Scott’s pro hockey retirement, the upcoming film ‘Goon 2’ and share some thoughts on good old fashioned violence in hockey!
Finally, the gang answers some twitter questions, reads some iTunes reviews and shares some favourite episodes over the years!
