Episode 22 – Canucks in top spot at the halfway mark

Since we recorded this podcast, the Canucks have followed up their remarkable 20-game undefeated streak by getting shut out twice in four games. Even carrot-top himself, Cory Schneider, lost two in regulation.

Still, our boys are tied for first in the league, and sit atop the Western Conference. Our observations about team chemistry on ice, smarts off the ice, and the horrid waste of time that is Tron: Legacy still stand.

  • Solid team from stem to stern
  • Chris discovers the key to success
  • If the playoffs started today

Not afraid to go hard in the corners

Guitarist for Vancouver-based rock band The Orchid Highway, ‘Jamie’ is a grizzled veteran of many tours across Canada, the US, and the UK. (They took their sticks on tour for the shinny games!) A fan of the game, he began cheering for Swedes back in the WHA Winnipeg Jets days, and was overjoyed when Vancouver drafted the Sedins 2nd and 3rd overall. An opinionated bastard, Jamie always has something to say.
