It’s a gorgeous day in Vancouver, but the boys kick off the show with some doom and gloom, breaking down the multiple mistakes that have been made during Jim Benning’s time at the helm of the Canucks.
The Welcome Matt dives into the Tyler Toffoli piece from the Player’s Tribune, where Toffoli stated that no offer was even made from the Canucks to the winger during the offseason.
Wyatt Arndt from the Athletic follows and breaks down why the Canucks are in their current situation, and why this offseason is going to be one of the biggest in the organizations history.
Wyatt’s colleague at the Athletic, our Thursday Canucks insider, Thomas Drance joins after Hashtags and starts off stating that he doesn’t feel that the Canucks would be a playoff team if they had signed Toffoli. Drance explains why he doesn’t feel that Loui Eriksson’s contract was Benning’s biggest mistake, and rather it was the free agent signings Jay Beagle and Antoine Roussel on July 1st, 2018 that were ultimately what messed up the salary cap to improve the roster.
The Price is Right takes a look at the sexy first round matchups in NHL playoffs, taking aim at the sunshine states, where the matchups are the most intriguing.

J Pat wonders why the Canucks haven’t been more creative with Elias Pettersson on the power play, while wondering what the ceiling is going to be for the Canucks all-star centre.
