Our Monday NHL Insider, the former HNIC exec. and co-host of the Bob McCown Podcast, John Shannon joined Matt and Blake. Talked about the very latest he has heard with the Vancouver Canucks. Says there are no leaks coming out of this organization. There is something to be made of the Boeser talk. Hasn’t heard much on Garland other than the obvious with his contract. Talked about how he is hearing more on Tyler Myers. The one name in the last 5 or 6 days that has surfaced more than Garland. Talked about three-team trades and what brings them about. Talked about Landeskog out till further notice and if it is at all tactical to keep from cap circumvention. Says that this is the one year COL has to win it. They will look a whole lot different next season. Talked about what EDM needs. They need a LD veteran. Talked about the Heritage Classic. Thinks they still have a place. Good crowds. They aren’t national events. They are for the two teams that are playing. Super home games.
Our Canucks reporter, Jeff Paterson joined us after a busy weekend for the team. Talked about missing Elias Pettersson. Talked about what JT Miller might have said to rally the troops on Friday. JPat puts the slow starts on the players. Nothing Bruce can do when the puck drops. Talked about the leadership roll that Miller is playing and if he is at all stepping on the toes of Bo Horvat. Suggested that Bruce is also playing into this, as well. Talked about how long the Canucks should consider resigning Miller to. Noted the importance of him turning 29 today. Talked more about EP40 and when we could see him back with the full group.
