July 26 2021 - Connor Lockhart (Vancouver Canucks), John Shannon (NHL Insider, Former Executive Producer of Hockey Night in Canada), Jeff Paterson (Canucks Reporter)

Back for a big week of shows after a very entertaining weekend in the NHL.

The Welcome Matt looks at the Oliver Ekman-Larsson acquisition by the Canucks, and how Sekeres feels that OEL will have a bounce back season joining an energized Vancouver market.

Canucks sixth round draft pick Connor Lockhart follows and tells us that he’s not concerned about where he got drafted, feels that he is taking the steps to improve his game on and off the ice, and why he feels that despite his small stature, he’s confident he can bring his game to the NHL level.

Our Monday NHL insider John Shannon follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter, and gives his insight on what was a crapshoot of an NHL draft, tells us how much he likes Conor Garland, why he thinks that Gary Bettman doesn’t care that the Arizona Coyotes are a dumping ground for bad contracts, and why he thinks that Braden Holtby will get bought out by the Canucks.

The Price is Right looks at the tone deafness of the Montreal Canadiens drafting Logan Mailloux, the Chicago Blackhawks trotting out a group of women at the draft to shield themselves from the sexual allegations the organization is currently dealing with, and the ridiculousness of Jake Virtanen’s agent calling out the Vancouver media for being too negative. 

Jeff Paterson joins for his daily hit and tells us what went wrong with Jake Virtanen in Vancouver, where the Canucks are at with the Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes extensions, why he thinks that Nate Schmidt would be a good fit in Minnesota, and what happened with the Jay Beagle neck injury.

We play Memo To on a Monday. Wrap up the show with all the Errors & Omissions.
