April 27 2022 - Darren Dreger, Jeff Paterson & Gregg Bell

Darren Dreger joined Matt and Blake for his regular Wednesday spot. Talked about an update he has on Thatcher Demko. Talked about other goalies around the league. Talked about Pete DeBoer. Dregs wouldn’t be surprised if he keeps his job. Thinks that if he is out in Vegas he will only be unemployed for as long as he wants to be. He’s a very high experienced and quality coach. Talked about Boudreau. Says that Bruce has a lot of loyalty to the Canucks organization after bringing him back into the league. Thinks this is a good learning opportunity for Allvin to go through a coaching search but you have to look at the facts.
Jeff Paterson in his regular spot. Talked about the Canucks being mathematically eliminated. We saw a different side of Boudreau last night. He was a real frustration about missing the playoffs. True to the character, as soon as he got out the door, there is Bruce turning on the charm. He hid it well when he got into the public. He really thought somehow, someway, that it would magically continue. Talked about if the Canucks will make the playoffs next year.
Gregg Bell of the New Tribune in Tacoma joined Matt and Blake on the eve of the NFL draft. As per usual, started off talking about hockey and the his thoughts on the first Kraken season. Talked about Matt Beniers if he could be the face of the franchise in the city. Talked about what the Seahawks will do with their 9th overall selection. This is the year that they would use the pick, with all their needs. If they would ever not trade down, this is the year.
