NHL Trade Deadline: March 8 2024 - Jeff Paterson

Matt and Blake pull a Seinfeld. A show about nothing after the Canucks do jack squat at the NHL Trade Deadline. The guys discuss what the Canucks didn't do in terms of not acquiring a player, nor signing Phil Kessel. They talk about whether they should have beaten the price Winnipeg paid for Tyler Toffoli, missing out on Jake Guentzel, and Jason Zucker. Other topics include: bargain prices for teams with cap space & the Canucks' lack thereof, not wanting to go 'all-in' and sell the farm, not moving on from Ilya Mikheyev earlier, Vegas loading up and the means by which the Knights could load up, and Vasily Podkolzin up/down and role going forward. Jeff Paterson (Rink Wide: Vancouver) stops by to say he was surprised and disappointed that the Canucks didn't do more. Jeff cites the need for another scoring winger, the lack of 4th-line identity, the inability to add character players, the lack of quality available (in Patrik Allvin's eyes), Elias Lindholm's go-forward from here, needing Podkolzin to play a role going forward in his analysis.

Matt and Blake discuss the latest trade deadline rumblings and the arms race igniting in the West. Canucks' exploration of a Elias Lindholm for Jake Guentzel deal, Vancouver's interest in Arizona winger Jason Zucker, Vasily Podkolzin being sent down, the Avalanche adding Sean Walker and Casey Mittelstadt (while parting with two B.C. boys), the Oilers adding Adam Henrique and Sam Carrick, Vegas getting Anthony Mantha, the Kings positioning themselves, a buyer's market shaping up (great for Vancouver) are all topics. As are the 2-1 overtime win in L.A., the miraculous Thatcher Demko save, Petey & J.T. stepping up when needed, and the boring Kings style. Darren Dreger jumps on to discuss the "salacious" report about a 3-team deal with Boston and Pittsburgh involving Lindholm & Guentzel. Dreger says the Canucks are still checking in on the defence market but won't likely be bringing an ex-Canuck winger back. He comments on the Canucks being aggressive, the shaping-up of a buyer's market, targets with term such as David Savard and Frank Vatrano, what's happening in Calgary with ex-Canuck Jacob Markstrom and Noah Hanifin, and his thoughts on the Canucks' glorious season to date and chances in the postseason. Frank Corrado hops on and says the Canucks now "must" trade Lindholm. That word leaking that they are exploring a Guentzel deal using Lindholm as bait means genie is out of the bottle and there's no going back, Frank evaluates why Lindholm hasn't worked out, Guentzel's fit, the prices paid for Anthony Mantha and Vladimir Tarasenko, and the availability of Vatrano, Savard.

Miller? The guys also discuss the Chris Tanev trade and whether the Canucks missed out, while turning attention to other defencemen on the market. What kind of defenceman they need with Carson Soucy on the comeback trail. The penalties, they are a problem.

February 28 2024 - Frank Corrado & Harman Dayal

Matt and JPat discuss the overtime loss to the Pens, another magnificent game from J.T. Miller, whether they were wrong about Miller, the crowd chanting his name and J.T. playing dumb, Rick Tocchet saying he needs more guys going while singling out Miller as the exception, Nils Höglander reaching 200 NHL games and his continued development with some good (another goal) and some bad (culpability on tying goal), Elias Lindholm's struggles, Arshdeep Bains' first week in the NHL, that vaunted third line and how it is now split up and looking lost, the penalties and whether referees have a vendetta, a good night for the fourth line (when they needed it), and Tocchet saying power-play guys need a breather from each other (and whether Miller and Elias Pettersson were the two guys in question). Frank Corrado joins to talk about Miller, his pulling guys into the fight and how you can see the confidence brimming. He breaks down the struggles of Quinn Hughes and Lindholm, and whether the latter is a positional fit with the rest of the top-6. He comments on the workload of his old defence partner, and gives us his trade-deadline wish-list player. Harman Dayal stops by and tells us why the Canucks are taking so many penalties. He comments on Miller, Lindholm, Bains and gives us his trade-deadline wish-list player. Presented by Applewood Auto Group.

February 27 2024 - John Shannon & Jeff Paterson (co-hosting)

Matt and guest co-host Jeff Paterson of Rink Wide: Vancouver muse over Elias Pettersson trades, and whether it's time to start wondering what those could look like this summer. They discuss Elias Lindholm's mediocre start as a Canuck, where he fits best in the lineup. Thatcher Demko's workload is a topic, as is new power play formations at morning skate and whether Phil Kessel is the tonic for that struggling unit. Other topics include: the game against the Penguins, interest in Brandon Duhaime or players like him and whether they need one for the playoffs; the Dallas Star gaining cap space as a team to watch before the deadline, and the Boston Bruins' scratching a veteran defenceman and on the lookout for a blue-liner before next week's deadline. John Shannon joins to discuss the Pettersson impasse. He says he doesn't believe the Canucks are considering a trade -- even this summer. John talks about his Canucks' team MVP, Chris Tanev and the available Flames, the Blues' and Predators' deadline plans, and Sidney Crosby memories from 2010. Presented by Applewood Auto Group.

January 17 2024 - Frank Seravalli & Frank Corrado

Matt and Blake comb through the continuing angst over Elias Pettersson's contractual status and Patrik Allvin's comments about how it's unusual for an RFA to not have a resolution at this point. They discuss Elias' history with the franchise, the signposts to come and how this can play out. They also talk about Allvin getting aggressive before the trade deadline, whether he owes it to fans and the players. Plus, whether they could acquire a player and instantly sign them in this environment with Pettersson and Filip Hronek unsigned, and midseason awards and one outlet having Rick Tocchet and Quinn Hughes as trophy winners. Other topics include the B.C. Lions re-signing another key free agent and the Seahawks giving John Schneider the keys to the kingdom. Frank Seravalli from Daily Faceoff joins to talk about how aggressive the Canucks will get before the deadline, the worrying over Pettersson, whether the club would let him go into his final year before unrestricted free agency, trade buzz around Andrei Kuzmenko and two Western Conference clubs that could be a source of deadline reinforcements. Frank Corrado stops by and puts himself in Allvin's shoes with regards to Pettersson. He comments on whether Elias Lindholm would be a fit with the existing wingers, and whether Kuzmenko has to be dealt to better utilize his cap hit. Presented by Applewood Auto Group.

January 12 2024 - Frank Seravalli & Jeff Paterson

Matt and Blake digest another Canucks win, and continued excellence from the Lotto Line. We hear from Thatcher Demko, Elias Pettersson and Rick Tocchet from Pittsburgh, and discuss whether the Canucks should go "all-in" on this season. The guys talk about Jim Rutherford saying the Canucks want another top-6 forward, whether that should be a centre or a winger and the candidates at each position. We put the club's historic PDO into context with some of the best teams in modern NHL history, as well as Tocchet heading to the All-Star Game. Frank Seravalli stops by and says the Canucks should target a defenceman not a forward, that they shouldn't go all-in, and offers some names on the trade market including their expected cost. Frank says Sean Monahan, and an under-the-radar Flyers defenceman would be wise targets given their expected cost. Rink Wide: Vancouver host Jeff Paterson joins to talk about the Lotto Line, scoring first and holding two-period leads - the Canucks winning formula. Jeff wants to see this defence corps get a run before adding to it, and thinks "all-in" is too bold and that the Canucks shouldn't be seduced by names like Elias Lindholm and Jake Guentzel, rather should target cheaper rentals. The guys also talk about J.T. Miller and Brock Boeser, and the value they're bringing (despite rich contracts). Plus, we go To The People and hear from listeners/followers on topics such as Guentzel, Jim Benning's acquisitions and line nicknames. Presented by Applewood Auto Group.

Matt and Blake pay tribute to fans with one familiar face and one familiar voice joining a special S&P Presents Labour Day edition.

Plus, it was this Friday last year when the Canucks signed JT Miller to a seven-year extension. Who should be his wingers and how will he live up to the pressure of performing as an $8 million man? John Shannon stops by to tell us 1/3 the league have their personnel set, so a Tyler Myers trade might be tricky.

Frank Corrado is even more optimistic for Canucks fans. He says he has "zero" concern that Pettersson will leave, believing that this is solely about getting off to a good start to the season, unlike the last two. Frank allows that there are positive and negative interpretations to the comments, and that direction of the team is going to be big in getting him signed long-term.   Presented by Applewood Auto Group.Follow us on social (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok & YouTube). Powered by Go Goat SportsSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Former Canucks president and captain Trevor Linden joins to talk about his late friend and teammate Gino Odjick. Linden shares stories about the legendary Canuck, and commiserates with the plight of current captain Bo Horvat. Rick Dhaliwal stops by with the latest on Rick Tocchet's soon-to-be hiring and the suitors for Horvat.Presented by Audi Downtown Vancouver, Land Rover Vancouver & Jaguar Vancouver.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
