Back after the long weekend and we’re bursting with show!

The Welcome Matt wonders just what Wayne Gretzky is going to bring to the TNT NHL broadcasts, after it was reported that the Great One is joining the broadcast. Matt draws the parallel between Gretzky taking on a role he’s not familiar with, to that of the possibility of the Sedin twins joining the Canucks front office with the same amount of experience.

Former NHL player and host on TSN 1260 in Edmonton Jason Strudwick joins next and breaks down how Oilers fans are feeling after getting swept in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs by the Jets. Strudwick says that there is an incredible amount of angst amongst Oilers nation. 

NHL insider John Shannon follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter, and gives his thoughts on Gretzky joining the broadcast booth, what happened between the Canucks and Travis Green’s contract extension, whether or not Jim Rutherford is interested in working with the Canucks and if he feels that refereeing in the Stanley Cup playoffs needs to be adjusted. 

The Price is Right focuses on local sports and how if we continue to play our cards right there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.

Jeff Paterson joins for his first hit of the week and talks about the need for the NHL to ref the game the same in the playoffs as they do in the regular season. J Pat wonders how the Canucks are going to be a playoff team next year without sacrificing future assets, and how Jim Benning is going to be aggressive on the free agent market with very little cap space to work with. 

We play Hot Take on a Tuesday and wrap up the show with all the Errors and Omissions.
