August 10 2021 - Harman Dayal (The Athletic), Julia Grosso (Canadian Olympic Gold Medalist)


Another day in the blanket fort with a gold medal show on tap. 

The Welcome Matt looks at the Canucks order of operations this summer in contract negotiations, wondering why the Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes deals are now being on the back burner to get Jason Dickinson deal done first. 

The Pat Down focuses on the NHL schedule for next season and how logistically it must be a nightmare for the league who still don’t know if they’re going to send its players to the Winter Olympic Games in China. 

Harman Dayal follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter, and tells us why he’s skeptical that Olli Juolevi can be an everyday NHL player, why he doesn’t think that Jason Dickinson will give the Canucks more offence, what he thinks the AAV will be for Dickinson’s new contract, why he feels that the players and Travis Green are pumped by the moves the team has made, and who he thinks could be bargain pickup for the Canucks.

Golden goal scorer Julia Grosso from the gold medal winning Canadian women’s soccer team joins and explains how she was feeling walking up to kick that game winning goal, how much confidence and belief the team had in one another, and how Christine Sinclair has been a huge influence on her career.

It’s Sekeres’ shot to sizzle on Hot Take.

The show wraps with all the Errors & Omissions.
