Says that he has his sights on some club records. It’s been a lot of fun while they are winning. Guys are enjoying this time and the playoff push as well as enjoying each others company.

Started off by a talking to the audience for some thoughts as you no longer get a chance to have a last show these days. Talked about what it was like to serve two markets, in Vancouver and Calgary. Somehow he managed to watch all the games. Talked about working with Karen Surman. It was overdue for her to get a shot. Talked about the Canucks and how they’re doing. Followed that up with thoughts on full capacity. Talked about the Whitecaps and if they are for real. Makes a great point about nobody wanting to deal with Gauld and White right now. Talked about Lions. There is a lot of work, not just on the football field, to get people back to the games. New ownership needs to learn on how to understand the common man.
Jeff Paterson, Canucks Reporter in his regular spot. Started talking about Podkolzin and why he will be healthy scratched. JPat is ok with him sitting a game out here.
