After three weeks in hospital Matt is back! 

The Welcome Matt explains why he was held up in hospital for so long.

ESPN radio NBA play-by-play announcer Marc Kestecher follows and breaks down the NBA Finals through the first three games. 

Craig Button follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter and tells us about his latest Craig’s List, details why Russian prospect Fedor Svechkov has climbed up the rankings and why Port Moody native Kent Johnson has fallen down, plus gives his take on the Minnesota Wild buying out Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. 

The Price is Right focuses on teams that had logos that were politically incorrect and how much received it has been within society, wondering what’s holding back those teams that continue to use offensive nicknames. 

Sports business insider Tom Mayenknecht follows Tell Me I’m Wrong and tells us why he thinks there is synergy using the same Canucks nickname for its new AHL team in Abbotsford, and whether he thinks the Vancouver Giants would be upset that the Abbotsford team used the Johnny Canucks logo.

Jeff Paterson joins back in his usual spot and explains why he thought the roll out of the new AHL teams nickname and colours was a clunky job by the Canucks, why he doesn’t think trading the 9th overall pick is a good idea for the Canucks, and what Trent Cull’s impact will be with the new team in Abbotsford. 

Blake’s looks to sizzle on Hot Take. The show concludes with all the Errors & Omissions.
