Jake’s back from Utica and Eric Lindros is going into the Hockey Hall of Fame. An interesting time for hockey fans to say the least!
P Mac, Geeta and Ryan gather this week following an exciting sports weekend in Vancouver. The Canucks have a big come from behind victory against the streaking and equally handsome Dallas Stars all while Jake Virtanen spent the weekend playing in Utica. The gang gives their thoughts on how Canucks’ brass is handling his development and if a quick two game stint isn’t what is needed with the 20 year old Canuck.
They discuss the rumours of Trevor Linden resigning as Canucks President and what the timeline is like for the other key members of the organization. Are they just rumours? Or is Big Trev heading back to the gym game.
Conversation moves towards the Hockey Hall of Fame inductees. The always controversial Eric Lindros, the much loved and respected Pat Quinn, Rogie Vachon and Sergei Marakov, the oldest rookie of the year in NHL history. Is it a week hall of fame class? Does everyone entering the Hall of Fame this year deserve it? And what players are still deserving of entering that haven’t been inducted yet?
Finally, the gang looks at some interesting tales of former Canucks around the NHL. Adam Clendening’s zero minute NHL game, Frank Corrado’s complaining and Michael Grabner’s impressive start with the New York Rangers.
