Here’s a delightful way to kill two birds with one stone and catch up on all of your Vancouver Canucks info. Do whatever it is you’re doing and give this a fun little listen.
Rob Fai and Rob Simpson bring you Sports Bar Radio, the Vancouver Canucks season-post-mortem edition. Of course, the post season, summer season is just getting under way.
Simmer attended the executive press conference with Canucks GM Patrik Allvin and President of Hockey Operations Jim Rutherford and had a chat with both men before having a one-on-one with Vancouver Canucks Head Coach Bruce Boudreau on his future plans. Essentially, he plans to be back after a little breather, but we’ve got the deets. Then there’s an item we can’t tell you just yet, but it’s coming.
What do you think of the future for JT Miller and Bo Horvat with one year remaining on each of their contracts? What will management do with Brock Boeser and his $7-million-plus qualifying offer? What would you do?
Here’s your listen link <<<<<
Given their strength up the middle, Thatcher Demko in net, premier D-man in Quinn Hughes and three beyond legit centermen if they were to play it that way – Miller, Elias Pettersson, and Horvat – there is plenty to build off of. The Vancouver Canucks need to bolser the right side of their D in particular and they need to get more bang for their buck on the wings.
Conor Garland looked pretty good playing the left side.
Brock Boeser has a big, fat qualifying offer to deal with and the Canucks have a two month time window to deal with it.
We talk about one of these dudes but not the other at this point.
No playoff predictions … we won’t bore you with that, but the start of the postseason has been more than entertaining.
Enjoy the Hockey Action!! (and the podcast) Cheers!
