If it’s this crazy now, what will it be like then. Rick talked about how much time it takes to get up to speed for new executives coming from the eastern conference.
Our Canucks reporter, Jeff Paterson joined us ahead of All-Star weekend. Jeff wondering why the game is on SAT at noon. Talked about what Rutherford said on a Toronto podcast. All the indications are that Jim is willing to do business. Unless this new FO has put its head together and said that it’s an off-season for almost all of the top players, this team isn’t good enough. Thinks Jim realizes that there is more to this job than meets the eye. Talked about Garland. JPat thinks the coaching change hasn’t worked for him.
