Anton Rodin plays 0:00, Willie handcuffs his team and the Vancouver Canucks win streak is over! A full bench of Ryan, Dave, P Mac and Geeta gather to star asking some serious question about Canucks’ Head Coach Willie Desjardins. From some odd line up decisions, the gang is a little confused.
They talk about bad karma for Mike Smith, as the bad luck for the lanky Coyotes goalie continues, and give their thoughts on the unfortunate hit (and eventual concussion) on Patrik Laine in a game vs Buffalo. Was it clean? Would you lay the body if you were in McCabe’s shoes?
Ryan cites Ken Dryden’s ‘The Game’ and more specifically, Dryden writing about famed Montreal Canadiens’ head coach Scotty Bowman and what makes a good coach. He compares it to what Willie D is doing being the Canucks bench and further questions Willie’s actions.
Finally, the gang talks about Wayne Gretzky’s outdoor alumni game tour, the downpour in the AHL outdoor game and the trials and tribulations of meeting people off Tinder in our new dating segment ‘Dump ‘N Chase’
