September 7 2021 - Don Taylor (Donnie & Dhali on CHEK), John Shannon (NHL Insider), Jeff Paterson (Canucks Reporter)

After the long weekend the boys are back together with Blake and Wadden returning to the blanket fort.

The Welcome Matt admires Leylah Annie Fernandez’s run at the US Open.

Don Taylor from Donnie and Dhali on CHEK TV joins the show and tells us what he was thinking wearing jeans to his good friends wedding, whether or not he thinks Vasily Podkolzin will have a better rookie season than Nils Höglander did last season, and if he’s concerned about Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes still not yet signed by the Canucks.

NHL insider John Shannon follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter and tells us why he doesn’t think that Kirill Kaprizov is a good comparable for Pettersson’s new contract, if he thinks that there will be NHL players that will choose to opt out this season, and why the Montreal Canadiens hands were tied with the Jesperi Kotkaniemi offer sheet from the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Price is Right takes a look at Canada’s sports right now and how Canadians are excelling on the pitch and on the tennis court like they never have before.

Jeff Paterson returns to his usual spot kicking off the third hour and tells us why he thinks the Canucks forward group is vastly improved, gives us some key dates to circle on your calendar for the Canucks, how prepared he is for the fans return to Rogers Arena, why he has trouble seeing Podkolzin being in the top-6 forward group, and wonders if Hughes can take the next step in his development and be the shutdown type of defenceman the Canucks hope he can be. 

Matt tries to land a sizzler on Hot Take. The show wraps with all the Errors & Omissions.
