January 16 2023 - Kirk McLean, Nathan Rourke & Jeff Paterson

Incredibly busy show with so much happening around the Canucks. Matt and Blake make the passing of Gino Odjick their lead discussion point, as well as the subject of the Welcome Matt. The fellas catch up with Kirk McLean, a Canucks ambassador, board member of the Canucks Alumni and a friend/former teammate of Gino. The Canucks legend was beloved by the B.C. hockey public, and today's To the People segment was dedicated to stories and memories of Gino. Jeff Paterson (Rink Wide: Vancouver) joins to interpret a wide-ranging press conference from Canucks president of hockey operations Jim Rutherford. So many talking points from his job performance, to a Horvat trade, to an inability to move contracts, to a timeline for competitiveness. Lastly, Nathan Rourke stops by to say goodbye after signing with the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars. The (now) former B.C. Lions quarterback explains why he chose Jacksonville and reminisces about his time in Vancouver and his extraordinary 2022 season.
