Big show on a gorgeous day in the city of Vancouver.

The Welcome Matt pays tribute to those that helped clean up the city the day after the Canucks lost in the Stanley Cup final back in 2011, and rioters destroyed a big portion of Vancouver’s downtown core.

Former Canucks president and general manager Mike Gillis follows and gives details on what his night was like when the Canucks lost in game 7 of the 2011 cup final. Gillis explains how the team went about helping the police deal with rioters, and how they helped the city the next day in its cleanup efforts. He also gives his opinion on the current state of the NHL and whether or not he thinks what Tampa Bay is doing with its salary cap is fair. 

Craig Button follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter and talks about how dominant Marc Andre-Fleury has been for the Golden Knights thus far in the Stanley Cup playoffs, his thoughts on Gerard Gallant taking over the head coaching duties with the Rangers, if Sam Reinhart is worth trading the 9th overall pick for, and if he thinks there could be a sign and trade with Dougie Hamilton and the Hurricanes. 

Jeff Paterson joins after Tell Me I’m Wrong and talks about how he’d love to see Gillis get another shot in an NHL front office, what he thinks will help the Canucks sell tickets for next year, and whether or not he thinks the Canucks will tell Loui Eriksson to not report to the AHL and just go home next year. 

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