It’s draft day in the NFL and the Canucks are in Toronto to face the hated Maple Leafs, so to say this is a big show would be an understatement! 

The Welcome Matt features some quotes from Rob Braley, the son of former BC Lions owner David Braley, where Rob lets us know his families feelings on the CFL/XFL merger and just what that potential partnership will mean for the Leos.

Our NFL insider Charean Williams joins and begins by talking about the Aaron Rodgers situation with the Packers and whether or not the reigning NFL MVP is on the trade block. Charean also expands on the reporting that Rodgers is still in the running to be the new host of Jeopardy. Charean also speculates that Russell Wilson will force a trade out of Seattle if the Seahawks don’t win a Super Bowl this year. 

Thomas Drance follows and comes in guns a blazing! Drance goes to bat for Jimmy Vesey, stating that the Canucks newcomer is one of the better options the team has to produce offence in its bottom six. Drance also gives his insight on what Kole Lind will bring to the Canucks lineup, as the rookie makes his NHL debut versus the Leafs, and whether or not the reports about the Canucks and Travis Green are in negotiations for a contract extension, or if the club is posturing at the moment.  

The Price is Right pays homage to the career of former Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller.

Jeff Paterson joins for his daily chat and questions the “code” in discussing the beating Alex Edler endured from Wayne Simmons in a first period fight that stemmed from an Edler knee on knee that put Zach Hyman out back on April 18th. J Pat also gives his thoughts on the Travis Green contract talk, questioning the teams handling of the situation. 

Take 5 is a contentious debate about whether Aaron Rodgers would be better suited to be traded to New England or San Francisco.

The show wraps with all the Errors and Omissions.
