Loui Eriksson returns to the Vancouver Canucks as they slump their way through southern California. A full brand of hockey, perfect for people with sleep problems on a Saturday night.
Geeta, P Mac and Ryan join you this week to talk about the up and down Vancouver Canucks. From Loui Eriksson’s return to the line up and his guaranteed lineup spot with the Sedin Twins.
They also discuss the Erik Gudbranson conundrum currently facing Jim Benning. Do you trade him to a contender for prospects or picks? Or do you re-sign him to a potentially inflated overpaying contract. They also ask what will happen to Jim Benning. He’s in his final year in his contract as General Manager. Does he retain the role? Or try and keep him on in a lesser role, one with a more emphasis on scouting and drafting.
Vadim Shipachyov officially retires from the NHL as a career Vegas Golden Knight. They discuss his short controversial tenure with Vegas and what eventually brought him back to Russia. We put together a nice little musical montage of his NHL career highlights.
Finally, the gang discusses the slumping Edmonton Oilers and what they can do (or need to do) to turn it around to become the playoff contenders they last year.
