Big show, with a big guest list! The Welcome Matt looks at the Canucks additions to the coaching staff and how after a season that had its challenges, the pressure is still on Travis Green to turn the team around. Canucks goaltending coach Ian Clark follows and explains how excited he is to be back working with the organization and with Thatcher Demko who he has been working with since the young goalie joined the franchise, how he feels about being a fan favourite in the market, his philosophy on teaching the position, Michael DiPietro’s progression, where Arthurs Silovs’ game is at, and if he feels the Canucks need to draft another goaltender. Thomas Drance follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter and gives his insight on how important it was for the Canucks to lock up Clark, how the Canucks want to get Pettersson and Hughes’ contracts done before they do any other business, and that despite it rarely happening, there is always a chance that a team could offer sheet Pettersson this offseason.  The Price is Right looks at a trend around the NHL, as teams that have had success have had to make hard decisions along the way, at times having to move on from superstar players to achieve success. Our good friend Kristian Jack joins next and explains his new role with the Canadian Premier League, how important it is for Canada’s national men’s team to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, who he sees as the favourites at Euro 2020, and who could be the country the fans fall in love with at the tourney.  Jeff Paterson joins for his daily hit and gives his thoughts on Ian Clark interview, praises the coaching staff additions the Canucks have made, and how Jim Benning should handle free agency this offseason.  Take 5 revolves around a debate on who will get nominated for a major NHL award first. Quinn Hughes for a Norris? Or Thatcher Demko for a Vezina? The show wraps up with all the Errors & Omissions.        See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
