July 28 2021 - David Pagnotta (The Fourth Period), Craig J Button (TSN), Jeff Paterson (Canucks Reporter)


Back in the blanket fort on free agent frenzy day and we got so much to get to! 

The Welcome Matt looks at the Tucker Poolman four year contract with the Canucks and why it has the same smell as Jim Benning free agency mistakes of the past. 

NHL insider David Pagnotta from the Fourth Period tells us that he was blown away by how much money and term was handed out during the opening of free agency in the NHL, why Vegas Golden Knights players are still baffled by the Marc Andre Fleury trade, on how he’s heard there was discussion from teams on offer sheeting Elias Pettersson, gives his thoughts on the Canucks moves, and who he sees as the best players still available on the free agent market.

Craig Button follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter, and tells us that he doesn’t understand the Canucks signing of so many depth defencemen to term and money, and unpacks some of the bigger deals that were signed today. 

The Price is Right looks at the Canucks lack of depth and how it continues to be an issue for the team.

Jeff Paterson joins for his daily hit and says that he’s still got lots of questions on the Canucks backend, explains how having hope that a player will have a bounce back season is becoming a seasonal occurrence for the Canucks, why he thinks 2021 2nd round pick Danila Klimovich was locked up so quickly, and what he remembers the most about Alex Edler’s time in Vancouver.

Blake looks to sizzle on Hot Take. The show wraps up with all the Errors & Omissions.
