"vancouver canucks" Discussed on The Ray & Dregs Hockey Podcast

"Were strong. Obviously a great career in the national accuracy with the Vancouver Canucks that led to where we're at this week in the Hall of Fame status. You know, was there ever a point in Vancouver where you wondered whether or not you were going to finish your playing career in Vancouver? Like did it ever get to a place where you were close to making a difficult decision of perhaps playing elsewhere? I think it was close a lot. We thought about that a lot early on because we were lucky to first of all get a spot on the team, our first year at all was okay. We were fairly successful. And then we took a few steps back and when you do that, I think it's as an organization. Which are noticed now being on the little bit on the management side. I think you notice that this session has to be made, right? And you have to ask Burke about that. But I wonder how many times did we talk about us? Maybe, I don't know, getting faded or getting some thought or whatever. So I think a lot of things could have gone different. That's why we are so glad that Burke always showed us that support believed in us and the war was to succeed. So I think he made some probably hard decisions early on. You guys saw you start Henrik, you mentioned in your speech that, you know, at 23 years old, you know, you guys weren't even sure what you were going to be really in the NHL and of course you go on to these amazing careers. What was there one thing that really changed the way you guys could perform or was it a bunch of things? Yeah, I'd love to say, I think it's a bunch of things for sure. I think we came in like that and said, we didn't play much earlier on. I think we played 30 minutes our first year and then we went down to 11 minutes and so if you really look at those numbers, I think we outperformed our ice time if you look at how much we play. So but people, they don't they don't see all those stats. They only see the amount of goals you have and the but I think going back to speed during the lockout or for it gave us a full year of getting away training more, getting stronger. And then we came back. I think we felt way more calm. We were able to play the wave we've always wanted to play. It was like in the park, we created more chances off the rush. Which we didn't do before the lockout. So there's a few things, for sure. You played with the number of players, of course, through your career, but Anson Carter, and then, of course, Alex burrows. And it seemed almost like a throwaway when they put Alex with you guys that, you know, things weren't rolling along very smooth. And like, did you did you think that was going to be as good as it was? Because it just seemed like, you guys just knew where he knew where to be to play with you guys. You guys always knew where to be to play with each other, but I remember what happened. I was like, I wonder why they're trying burrows. It's fun because people always thought we needed a right hand shot, big physical, getting them the four check protect us a little bit, but then burr came along and I still remember his first few games. A guy that wasn't the best gator didn't maybe had the best shot, but right away you notice that there was something there. He was smart, he was always in the right position. He was very defensely very aware of things. So I think we felt right. This could be a good fit and the first few shifts together. You realize, okay, this is the guy. I think we can make this work. And he obviously was willing to adapt. That was his strength I think he would adapt to any alignment yet. He did it to perfection. So he was just need to play with him. Isn't it amazing? And I'm sure you guys, you know, you see it now as you know, as you work through the development with the kids on the Canucks. But coaches have all these great ideas and they write all those lines on the white board and they all look really great together and then sometimes they just don't work. And then almost by accident, you know, this happens. But you look back to and there was other other lines that were thrown on our line for a game, two games, but we didn't score, so they would shuffle things. So I wonder what would happen if we didn't score a burrows for two games or three games? Would they have changed again? And then they would never go back. Those things that happens where his course, they put us together third period in St. Louis. And his course, that period. And then the next game he scores. So what would happen if he wouldn't have put us in? You might have ended up with Matthias Holland on your wing. You guys are almost out of guys by then. Jesus would have been positive about that. Okay, so I think people know how competitive you are. Maybe people didn't realize early in your career until, you know, as your career rolled along. And now there's been lots of stories about how, you know, you guys push each other all the time. So, you know, I'm amused by you guys and you're the way you run up the gross grind. For people that are listening that don't know how long is the grind, because I'm not going up there. It's too steep and it's too far. How far is it? But I think two kilometers. Okay, so it's two kilometers straight up gross mountain. If you had to go today, who's winning? Well, we did it. This summer development camp. And we, I mean, I came up first, but it's tough because the ending is a one man. It's almost going to be done. So you got to get there first. The race is really to there. Yes. I blocked him off. Perfect. And where were the prospects way behind or what? No, there were some good ones. And a lot of them had done it for the data for the first time. That's what I think they would have never known, right? No, we wouldn't have known. So, okay, so when you run, I do know this. Your marathon times are pretty crazy. Like, do you still want to run marathons? Do you still, or is that where you pass that? I think Ronnie has always been a such a great worker for us. I really enjoy the quiet time, listen, can listen to podcasts or listen to music or just think about things. And I think it's just you put your shoes on and you go out and I think there's a simplicity of running is what intrigues me. So I think we've done a few marathons. I think I'm probably going to do a few more. And when you rate, or when you run the marathons, are you raising each other, or are you just race in the clock? What do you think? I think you're raising each other. Of course. Okay, what about what about what other tennis anymore, you guys? Yeah, tell us, we played at the camp again. Daniel, that is way better than us. Take off through a little bit. The funny thing engulfed, we're both kind of shooting the same every time, but I always win. I think I lost like once in my whole life in like 200 games. So there's something mantler. Oh, he's into your kitchen. You can't let that. You got to start working on this, Daniel. You can not.

"Store and pick up a bottle of this wrapping up the chronicle series, trust us. It does not get any better. We've got Hall of Fame inductees Henrik and Daniel sedin of the Vancouver connect. What a whirlwind experience for all of the Hall of Famers. But then oh, jeez, yeah, we gotta get back to the real world, which is part of the development group of the Vancouver Canucks. So I'm guessing they're tired of doing media based on Hall of Fame, but kind enough Henrik and Daniel will join us in the podcast this week great. Talk about the weekend that it was and obviously will reflect back on their career. And, you know, just they're enjoyment level, not with how the things have gone with the Vancouver connect to this point, but just being part of that development coaching wheel in the National Hockey League. Headlines, again, this season presented by our friends at Boston pizza and I thought we'd start with kind of a nasty incident last night between the Los Angeles kings and the Edmonton orders with former knuckles, settlers hit on Connor McDavid. You know, to be fair, I didn't get a real good luck about the replay on it. I mean, it was called meaning. So there was a penalty on the play. It was a knee on knee situation. Just the response from the oilers postgame. You know, Zach Hyman talking about how the same guy hit him in a very similar situation and he was out an extended period of time. So I trust you've seen the video. I was watching last night. Dirty play split second reaction by edler, just trying to get a piece of Connor McDavid or maybe a combination of those two things. Well, okay, so it's a combination, but it's not like edler goes out in the game and says, you know, if I get a chance, I'm going to get my neo on McDavid. Nobody thinks that. I know fans like they, you know, they get so emotionally tied up and invested in it. But nope, I'm telling it, nobody does that. Nobody thinks that the media too, by the way, right? Honestly, part of the thing that everybody's the same, they say they don't care. But they're so full of crap because the emotionality and I wonder if they realize if their team wins the cup they don't get a ring. Like do they know that? Because they're not going to get one. Anyway. So I slide off on the path there. I could spend more time on that, but we won't. So it's a bit of both. It's a dirty play, and it's a last second reaction. Here's where the issue is, is as you get older or if or if you're not as talented as some other guys. And for edler, it's that he's getting older. You lose agility, you lose mobility, and sometimes you get stuck in a position where you're like, oh boy, in the wrong spot. It just, it just happens. Game's super fast. If you watch the play, McDavid's heading towards his own net. So I'm assuming Adler thinks I've got to get up on the play here because they're going to regroup in the neutral zone. And then like in a split second, McDavid's going the other way. Like if you watch that pivot and turn he makes, not a lot of guys that are doing that. Now he's coming quickly and in his position at large screwed. He really is. There's two things from a technical standpoint that caused that play to happen. One is that edler doesn't have his stick on the ice because he thinks he's got room to get up the ice. Because McDavid's going the other way. Sticks on the ice. He's going to make contact first puck on stick, and there is no hint. The second part is because his sticks up, that means his shoulders are square and as soon as you miss the initial shoulder contact, the only thing that can hit is knees. That's it. So those two things put edler in that spot. In my opinion, that play can not go ignored from player safety. And the reason I say that is you can't penalize McDavid because he's better than other people. That just can't be. It's not his fault that he's faster and more agile than Alex edler. Is going to make the hit, he's surprised that McDavid's coming as quickly as he is because he thinks he's got another couple of seconds. His stick's not on the ice. And as he misses the hit, he's like, oh, and he sticks his knee out. Yes, I know it's just a penalty. But it should not matter. This is my beef, I think, with player safety on these plays strikes is it shouldn't matter if McDavid's heard or not. I know they say it does. And they're very clear that it does. Yeah, it's part of the criteria. If McDavid tears is meniscus on that play and misses two months, is that they're going to get three games? Probably. Because he finished the game, he's not going to get anything. But it's the same play. Yeah. It's like, you know, they have a terrible analogy. It's like somebody gets hit in the head with a stick. And one guy's head is made out of concrete, and he doesn't even get caught in another guy gets caught and then there's a suspension on the one that's cut. No, it's the action. They should be suspended. So in my opinion, it's a sustainable play because of the reaction that edler makes. I don't think edler is a dirty player by any stretch, but I do think it's a play that deserves whether it's one game or two games. I think there's something that should be there. That's a dangerous dangerous play waiting for a bad outcome. All right, external heat developing and rising on Thatcher demko, right? Starting will tender for the Vancouver Canucks. I'm sure self admission he would acknowledge that he's not playing up to the standard that he established last year. I mean, many a night you watched every Canucks game last season second half. Yeah, there was the boudreau bump, but a lot of it had to do with the stellar goaltending of Thatcher demko. So he needs to be better, but is that developing heat as I described fair and accurate and no longer term even more concerning. I think it's fair. I think it's accurate. I don't think he's been very good. And I was on, I've been on multiple shows with my opinion saying I think he's one of the 5 or 7 best goalies in the league. Right now he's one of the worst, like statistically he's one of the worst. So I see articles that are coming out. Can the Canucks fix him? Well, okay, so he's played, I don't know, has he played 8 games? Something like that, something like that. So in those 8 games, he's completely forgotten how to play goal. The other 40 that he played last year, where he was amazing. They don't count anymore. A player can go into like, I don't know, is Steven stamkos ever going to score goals again. He went pen games without a goal. Nobody's out wondering whether they can fix stamp calls. It's the course of a season and every good goalie will run through this. Maybe not to the extreme right now that damn cool is. I find not being a goalie, but I find the goalies to get into trouble like this as the panic sets in a bit than every player has when they start to hit a ditch. The panic is he tries too hard to stop the puck. He needs to rely more on his instincts and his reads of the game. When you see a pocket go through a goalie on a consistent basis, that means there's movement. They could be square to start, but then they move their blocker opens up their arm, puck goes through. They move their feet, park goes through their legs, and to me, it's not a, hey, let's fix it by next Thursday because it's going to take a little bit of time here, but he's not anywhere near as good. But I don't, for me, it's not an overriding concern. I don't see that at all. Would that apply to buffalo as well? I mean, buffalo is in a funk right now last 7 games. And it wasn't that long ago. We were looking at the buffalo Sabres and man, it was just fun to see this group play the way they were playing early in the season. You can still see the pieces. You know, they've got a terrific top line. You know, you've walked Rasmus dahlin and own power and the evidence is legit that the Sabres blue line is going to be one of their strengths in the very near future. So just something that, you know, Donnie and the buffalo Sabres have to play through the kind of rise and fall ebb and flow of what is a regular season and the fact that it's not easy to turn a corner like buffalo is trying to do. I think it's the second one. Again, we talked about those young teams at the start of the year. And in my opinion, was there a year away all of them from competing. Now, turns out I might be wrong on Jersey as they've won ten straight. But Detroit, Detroit's got their teeth kicked in a couple of times here in the last two weeks. They've become a young team again. Ottawa just what

"You accumulate more, it's going to be hard to fill that gap. And we can talk about guanosine free agents. But if you're not developing enough players, guillain Barre squash shouldn't be playing his 11th game in the NHL. He was drafted was in 2015 or whatever it was. This is a guy that, you know, should be at this point, how you develop properly should have been playing every day for your team instead. He's number ten 11 on your depth chart, and he's playing a couple of games for you. You don't have those guys who develop. And that's what you have to really start building into this group as well. And you really see it in years like this. I mean, you see the free agent defenseman that are depth defenseman. None of them are really good. The two way guys I signed the two way contract. You're not going to win signing those guys. Well, and that's why I really push back on the idea of this organization, not wanting to make a panic move now because I think it's long past time to panic in terms of some of these underlying issues, right? And not panicking in terms of the 7 game sample with panicking in terms of what this 7 game sample has shown us. For sure in terms of the underlying issues. Exactly. And the question is, does management see it? Do they see the flaws, or are they going to fall for the same? I think it's a lot easier to see it when your O 5 and two. It is. Exactly. And honestly, I've been saying that other than maintaining all along. I haven't been as critical with management because I think they do see it. I think their biggest fault has been an inability to do the things they want to do. And I think hey, again, you can say all the right things have the best plan, you have to execute your plan. It doesn't take them. It doesn't excuse anything or whatever it is. But you got to get stuff done. And ultimately, unless you make some tough decisions, how are you going to eventually supplement things?

"They were pretty openly cutting costs where they could divesting in resources. And so to build a successful organization, you need to invest as much as you can into it. And so that would be an alarming thing when you see a move like that where it's pretty clear that especially what am I just saying, they've had 5, 6, 6 draft picks of past three years. And they're trading a future second to save at 1.5, and then 1.9 million in the next year. Yeah, so they save about 3.5 in cash, which ended up buying out Riley stillman ends up actually saving them almost 5 million in cash. I got this off season. And it would give them about if they buy out stillman, they pretty much had get three now a million of cap space. So the O two and a half million accounts. So they get cap space. But the dollar savings are notable because you see how it stands out. And the team I come out and said, we don't want to move draft picks to get off salary. And then they end up moving a draft pick to get off salary. And I know they're up against the cap, but you wonder about those types of trades, like how important was that for their organization? Yeah. What else you're on the connects? You want to get to. We've got another ten minutes or so. I think we've hit on a lot of the key topics. I don't know. I've seen this idea that and I think Darren dreger flew it out yesterday and when he says something like that is clearly coming from someone. He's not just making that up. Yeah. This idea that they consider changing coaches or that that's one option. Okay, you know what? You know, we didn't touch on the coach or anything at all. And I think it's well, we touch on a little bit when we're talking about the puck hunting. For sure, but I mean in terms of how Bruce fits in with that management team and everything 'cause I think it's pretty evident he's not really their guy. It's clear it was an ownership hire, even though Rutherford signed up on it signed off on it and Rutherford admitted on hockey night in Canada on the weekend that he thought that boudreau was going to sign a one year deal. That was his understanding and then he found out it was a one plus an option here. So that was interesting that he mentioned that and that maybe he had said to ownership. I'm cool with boudreau for a year and then ownership ends up giving him an option here and it's like, okay, now we're forced to bring this guy back and he had the good 57 game run. It kind of came off as if we were in four if we didn't have that extra year. Maybe we don't bring him back or maybe we have our own view on it or whatever it is. And the other thing that they always talk that kept talking about is they want to be better with how they play and they want to have not identity with how they play. It doesn't look like Bruce fits with what they want to do. But what's that what's that identity playing fast?

"And so you have the difficult pieces in place, and I think the problem is they've identified that and gone, all right, well, we got this. Now let's pay all these other kind of superfluous parts around them that are luxury items when in reality they should have been taking the long long and being like these players are in their early to mid 20s. Three, four years from now, how can we put them in a best position to succeed? Well, exactly. Now you're in a position where all your guys have to get paid premium dollars. You know, you can pay everybody premium to all those and they have an accomplished enough. I mean, you had a choice between JT and Bo I think. You know, and it's organization has made its choice and we'll see if they find a way to keep Bo as well. You could have made a case for either one because neither as much as they're important players to the team aren't exactly the foundational building blocks that you want to really build your team around. That's Quinn, that's Patterson. That's Thatcher damn cool. Those are the guys that you really want to build around. Everybody else has to fit in money wise in a way that makes sense. And had you say not spent as much on the superfluous superfluous players you're talking about that aren't providing next to anything to the roster, maybe you could say, you know what? Let's just give both 7 or 8. He's our guy. Let's just make it work. We can do that. But now you can. You've backed yourself into a corner where even the guys you might feel like, okay, we can pay a little extra to keep because it's worth keeping you can't. You simply can't. They have no margin for error to hand out any more contracts at this point. So that's why a tough decision decision really has to happen somewhere. And if it doesn't, you're going to be stuck in the same position. Yeah, man, that is a frustrating thought to think about. But yeah, I mean, here we are. What was it two years ago an hour? They had just showed any ounce of patience. They would have been off $12 million instead, they reinvested it. For sure. But again, it comes down Dimitri to like, okay, right now, I know people have been getting mad at me because I'm like, no, ownership's not forcing them assign to a T mobile. That's what I've heard at least. That's not what's going on. But ownership has always been kind of the big issue over everything in terms of big picture. The meddling. And what we're trying to do, yes. And usually it's like hands off for a few years, but eventually can't help yourself. You want to get involved and things really start to devolve from that point on. We're not there yet, I don't think. But if you want to go back two years, the best example of it was, had you made the changes. Next pad this pass off season when it was so clear that with how the year went and everything that had you just made a

"Diluting ourselves in a weird way organizationally that, oh, if we enter next off season and add one more one more player, all of a sudden, we could be a playoff team and it's like that's the absolute worst way to look at the situation. Can you see the forest for the trees? You know what I mean? Can you do that? And if they can, I think you still make a tough decision. And I think the biggest indicator of that's going to be Bohr vat here Dmitri. You know, because a decision has to come. And I don't know how he is the captain and I know a lot of fans would be happy if they kept them. But it's hard to sell. We're going to be different. 7 more years beyond this to JT Miller. Another 7 years say to pull horvat. You know? I don't know if you can do that. And sell this again. And even if you're on a run, that's going to be the big question. Because if you make that trade, no matter what, then it shows, okay, you have a plan. You have a real idea what you want to do. And you're not going to be fooled by the bounce back, which is going to happen. I mean, this team, this team shouldn't be a sub 80 point team. Which means they're going to win more games than they lose. At some point this season and going on a run. And that's going to happen. It's going to frustrate people. It's going to excite some people, but it's going to frustrate a lot of people as well. You can't get fooled by that. And to me, that's going to be the biggest test here that when you do have the balance back, do you still have the guts to make the move you need to make? Because the easiest thing to do is double down on what you already have. Yeah. Well, it's a bull turns 28 this spring. Yes. I think based on everyone you talk to, it's pretty clear. I mean, this is a unique to him, but it certainly seems to be coming from within his own voice that he wants to play competitive hockey. Yes. I think part of the logic used to be, well, he's the captain. He likes it here. So he'll take less to stay here. At this point, I don't understand why he would do that to himself. And so if he's going to take what someone would probably if he's going to opt for what someone would give him on the open market, which is significantly more than he probably should be making for this connects team that I don't know how you can reconcile giving him that if you're the Canucks in the current position they're in. And that's a very tricky. You're talking about making a hard decision. Yeah. That's going to be a tough one. But he's also a player. I like before about a lot. Similar to what we're talking about JT Miller, I think a bit miscast in the sense that he's thought of as this defensive stalwart wins a ton of draws. Blakey, you can play a bull that's in the ice and he's an incredibly skilled player who has been miscast on this connects team because of their lack of depth. And so if someone wants to pay full dollar on the trade market for what that's idea of what bull horvat is and I'm sure he would look great on a better team that could insulate him in that way. Yes, sign me up for that if I'm running the Canucks. Well, it's funny because he's not him and JT are not the same player.

"There are fans that aren't going to like it, but of course there is an appetite for it now. I mean, the first home game of the season doing the postgame show, the number of messages I got on the postgame show for people at the game saying their longtime season ticket holders and they're sick of watching the same thing. And it was 8 years culminating to that one game. I know it's a different management team. But it was a lot of the same things I came up, so that's what I think why fans were so triggered after that opening night game and how they reacted with a lot of fans and they're saying, listen, I don't leave games early. I couldn't stand being here tonight. And they need to rebuild. I can't come back to the same thing year in a year out again. You can't expect me to buy into the same thing year in and year out. So the appetite is there. It all comes out to one thing because ownership want to do it or not. That's the only question I have Dimitri because it's bogus to say the fans won't do it. You can sell a plan to the fans and doesn't have to take that long. You have some building blocks if you want to take that road, you can do it and sell it to the fans. The question comes down to does management want to do it and would ownership even green light it. Well, I think most people what they wanted this entire time and what they still want and what they haven't received. Is an organization that has not only a coherent plan in place for what it's trying to accomplish. But then actions that actually follow that up and show us that we're taking this pine seriously, right? It's a lot of stop and start a lot of two steps forward, three steps back. And you're right. I mean, it seems clearly guided by the fact that they're desperate to hold on to these fans that might leave if you acknowledge that you're fully rebuilding and you're fully tearing it down. But to me, you look at the kings, for example. They won the cup in 2014. They didn't really start trading anything away or fully rebuilding until January 2019 when they first traded Jake muzzin to the leafs, I believe, and then came to fully to the Canucks, Martinez, and the golden knights, Jack Campbell as well to the leafs again. And what they did in the process and basically three year span is accumulated a ton of draft capital, make the most of it by drafting incredibly well. And keeping their financial books clear so that they could jump on Victor if it's in when the expansion draft came. Philip deno and he needed a new contract.

"Assuming health, assuming the risk issues are behind him and he plays this way. Yeah, this guy's living, especially you're seeing some of these contracts rolling for young forwards. I mean, he must be just licking his lips seeing every one of them because yeah, I'd say definitely in the double digit range, probably around 11 ish. I guess. I'd say so too. I mean, it depends if the cap goes up even more and he has one more big year in weights. Yeah. Could you imagine? Well, Dylan Larkin's the next domino to fall in that regard in terms of kind of like a young leader for his team. And I wonder if with the cap going up 4 million next year and he has one more year left on his deal. And then let's say the cap goes that this is being very optimistic. But let's say it goes up another three or 4 million. It's going to reset the entire market as far as the contracts we're looking at. The percentage of the cap when X are 9 million on top of the cap now. I don't know if he's going to get 12 or 13, but I'm very curious to see how big these numbers are going to get in a hurry within a year or two. Yeah, but thought process like that enables this organization, which they've done for years. It's like, oh, well, listen, we can make all these investments because the cat's going to go up every year. Let's talk about what she's going to get paid. I saw some of that with the JT Miller contract as well, where I was like, oh yeah, wow, he's making this percentage of the cap now, but four years from now, it's going to be peanuts compared to it's like, okay, what type of player is he going to look like in four years? That's the bigger question. You can't wear. With Patterson, you don't worry about it. Of course. Because of his age. His age is going to play it out and whatever it is, but the number might be more eye popping than people expect. Maybe in a year or so, but on JT Miller, there are a lot there isn't a lot you can take from his game that's redeeming outside of just to share production. Yeah. Especially in this, your last year you could make the same argument, but there was more to his game. The power play is terrible. I mean, one thing you could say about him was he a catalyst on the power play real solid producer there. With that not being the case, it's like, what edge are you bringing outside of just, you know, scoring some points, which is good, but obviously not leading to any victories.

"Their shot totals were all right. You know, volume was okay, but weren't generating anything, giving up a lot, but not generating a lot. And you could sit there and say, hey, we're out shooting teams, but what does that mean when you're not generating a single proper scoring chance? I guess the only difference between now and last year is they haven't won a few games because through 7 games you know last year that they had there were three three and one but Aaliyah Patterson looks like a different player. But outside of that, I want to watch a couple games for last year. They look eerily the same, you know? It's not the same coach either. Yeah. And I just don't know what the solution is to try to play differently unless you just say, you know, like you said, play some 50 50s or whatever and just pray to God that your defense doesn't get exposed too much. Well, these have been a rough 15 or 16 minutes for Knox fans right now. So let's give them a little silver lining here because you mentioned a lot of pedersen. I was just on with our pals Jamie Dodd and Thomas dance before this and I was kind of hinting at this. I want to get into a bit more because I want to know what allows pedersen's off season workout regimen was because I want to go on it. Maybe I'll wait till my new year's resolution to finally start it. But he looks so much stronger out there. I think you can tell his shot rate is back up, which means signals to me that he's feeling much more confident in his wrist health and that kind of started towards the second half of last year. But in terms of some of these battles where he's like one on one beating Taj Tom so along the boards and winning puck possession of that against the Kansas going in and through a massive body check off the four check.

"Just trying to get one and done is trying to get in, create a chance. Maybe create chaos and maybe that leads to a goal or a balance. That sustained pressure just doesn't happen. It's just so much pressure on your fours coming back to create that. And that, I kind of wonder as much as we heard Alvin today say the systems aren't the same. I don't know if they are. Because last year, there was more quick ups, a lot more 50 50 bucks, throw it up, and at least let your forward ski skate off for 50 50s. Maybe they win them. And it's not a sustainable way to win long term and be a contender. But when you're having this much trouble getting out of your own zone, maybe that is the best way you can do things. And you go back to the beginning of last year, the Canucks also had a lot of trouble because they were trying to be more controlled in how they came out of their own zone. More controlled about how they get set up in the next zone. And they just didn't have the capabilities. And they got worse. They play worse when they try to play that way. Which makes which begs the question, what's the best way to play with this group? Maybe you can play it. You can't play the style that management wants in terms of having the structure you need and have in the breakouts the way you want. Maybe these guys can't do that. But here's the problem. There's a double edged sword when you have a blue line with so many issues. I agree with you. I think they'd be more successful if they were throwing the pock up for those 50 50s and trying to kind of embrace the chaos of what a hockey game can devolve into. But when that happens, you have to trust your blue liners in terms of their foot speed to deal with what's coming back at them the other way when you lose those 50 50 battles. And this looks like a team that's very uncomfortable doing so and honestly looking at the depth chart, understandably so. For sure. And so then when you try to insulate yourself that way, you're making yourself even worse offensively and it's kind of like bleeding yourself dry in a way. Yeah, it's hard to come to the solution. It's all imperfect, right? It's finding the least imperfect one to find a way to find a way to win. And I guess the big elephant in the room around all this too is Thatcher demo is not billing them out. Last year, at least demko was bailing them out a lot of nights. And you know, he's making incredible saves. And he's made a lot of good saves, but he's not overcoming his environment, when he was over and covering that environment last year. I want to defend Thatcher demko, not that you were insulting him. But I have seen. And listen, according to Alvin hockey, his -5.9 goal is able to expect it is the worst in the league out of any regular goalie, right?

"Have to find a way to solve what's going on. It's only been ten months on the job. But the fact that you're pressed up against it right away and people already asking questions and it's fair to ask when you've made a $100 million of future commitments and one off season. You got skin in the game. As a management team, so it's fair to ask, do you how much do you believe in this team? And honestly, if they could have found a way to move, say, oh well, I think they would have done it. If they could have found a way and moved to say another higher paid forward, like even better, had they got an offer they felt good about. They could have made. The calculation they made was let's just re sign them. Let's hold on and maybe the value changes and you can trade them later. And it's only 7 games in. But I think already it looks like maybe you made the wrong call on these guys. Maybe you can't trade these guys and the same questions are arising again. Okay, let's go through all those 7 games. I want to set the scene here for those scoring at home. O 5 and two -13 goal differential. Blue multi goal leads in each of the first four games, I believe. The home opener on Saturday felt incredibly hopeless, especially as the game went along. He got embarrassed by a 5 one score. It was categorical embarrassment to the point where fans through jerseys on the ice after the game or towards the end of the game. And the most recent game against the hurricanes though admittedly a far superior team. Who was playing game 5 of a 5 game road trip. They go into that third period title one. Within 90 seconds, they gave up two goals. In the first ten minutes of that period, they registered one shot of shot on gold themselves. And I think they had three by the end of it in the final 20, and it really felt like against that hurricane's fortress. They couldn't even get the puck up to center ice for large periods of time. It was dire. So what we're going to do here today is over the next hour, hopefully talk about kind of what's gone wrong specifically and then what the next move should be. So where do you where do you want to start this conversation? I'll give it to you as the because you're talking about this team on a daily basis. Yeah, well, let's start with the blowing leads. Okay, let's start with the process of getting those leads 'cause there's been a lot of talk about, hey, we're doing a lot of good things to get those leads and we played really well. And there are times you can look at the process and say it's been okay. But the thing that had me concerned and I want to get your thoughts on this, especially when you go back and rewatch these games. Were they even full credit for those leads half the time? And how do those leads come to be? You could actually make the case, they got lucky with some of those leads. And that's why it wasn't so easy to just say, hey, they're all win a bunch of games coming out of this because they're due for victories. Now, if anything, you can say, this is how bats seasons happen, where the games you're supposed to win, you don't win. And then the luck runs out and then you double lose. You know what I mean? It doesn't get made up for you. As much as we talk about regression happening, the world is indifferent. It doesn't owe you anything.

"I'm good, man. Excited to be on your show. This time, you know, I gotta say it. It's cool that we're doing it in studio here. Yes. It's a more professional setting. I do miss us doing it over a beer with all the pods. Yeah, at the WiiWare class. You make your annual appearance here in the video guys now that we're officially coworkers, I feel like we can make this a more regular occurrence. A 100%. 'cause I always love chaining with you and it's awesome. Unfortunately, it feels like every time we get together, it's like under the most somber circumstances where we're just like, all right, here we go again. But that really is the case right now. I know, I mean, to some extent, you could probably just replay the conversations from a few years ago. Yeah, just slightly different names but same themes. So coming into the year, I think it's safe to say there were elevated expectations for this Canucks group that they'd be competing for a playoff spot. Thanks in large part. They had a spirited effort down the stretch last year after Bruce Buddha took over. They were 32, 15 and ten, which was 11th best point percentage. And what I always say to people is, you know, everyone talks a big game, especially in the off season. It's like, all right, we're gonna be better this year. We have high expectations, high goals for this group. So I always say you gotta look at the actions rather than the words, right? And you and I were talking before we went on air, I think it was pretty clear to me watching just judging what the Canucks did this off season. That I think internally, they definitely had expectations to be competing for a playoff spot this is a 100%. Otherwise, you don't go and you spend $19 million on a luxury item. You don't prioritize committing future capital into JD Miller who's going to be 30 years old here unless you think it's going to mean something and the present. That's not a move you're making for four years down the road. So it's pretty clear to me based on that that they thought fairly highly of themselves. We're two weeks into the season. Yeah. And it feels like all of that optimism is just dissipated immediately. Well, I mean, it's the same cast of characters having the same problems early in the season. And people are just sick and tired of watching the same movie early in the season. Coming in with hope and next thing you know, why are we underachieving and it's the same thing again and then your best players underachieving the team looking discombobulated and we always talk about can this team be greater than the sum of its parts? They've been lesser than the sum of their parts. And that's pretty astonishing to say about this team. The last little while with how they've played, especially the start of the season. I mean, they shouldn't be O 5 and two to start the season. You know what I mean? But they played that poorly. They look really bad. They're systems and they're I mean, they're process has been horrible. I mean, there's nothing you can really point to as a team playing. Hey, they're doing this well outside of getting a few leads. They haven't been able to hold on to. But they absolutely had an expectation to make the playoffs.

Although you were best in class or and edmonson on that for years from the huey campbell school of keeping it under wraps rix well done. Let me ask this little question. And the only reason i ask is because long ago i heard a story and you'll know You know david asper as well former chairman of the bombers who once said to me when we were buying the southern chain of newspapers we were given the option walked through the newsroom's like cover of darkness at night on a weekend or just in the middle of the day sort of hiding in plain sight. Did mr domain walk through the facility there in nursery. Can you take us through when his interest began. When you. i sort of heard that you might have an interest in local buyer. No i'm not did not walk through in the day or at night a Amar spent fan and actually the sponsor to a lot of years and he's known david well and he talked to the number of times. David barely about the potential Well i think at the end of the day when you really analyzed and i know for sure david just couldn't but his name on the dotted line. He loved the lions. He loved the cfl. It wasn't like he needed the money so he he just could not sell and That was the bottom line too. So maher's been around for quite a while and He's a very big fan Is big fan of football and a As a sponsor it one of his companies used to began while building materials. We've been a sponsor for a number of years now. Another just changed the name. A number of months ago to dome building materials on the china stock exchange so He's still a sponsor now he's gonna get involved in pink. Well i i just want to pick up on your last answer there. We say you're not sure how much she'll be there. Or how much of a is he gonna have a designate running this franchise or or or serving as sort of his Ah serving as sort of the link to ownership or is going to be the structure that we know where.

"So james i have to. I was a little caught off guard last week when nhl ruled out the playoffs schedule. I was like week. The games are starting this weekend. What's the thinking behind the nhl jumping into the playoffs. So quickly here well. They're trying to move as fast as they possibly can. Because they've got some deadlines on the other end. The nhl had a number of shutdowns with the pandemic due to covid absences for different teams and that of structure schedule a longer than they wanted it to. And there's time pressure because nbc is obviously the rights holder in the us. They've got the olympics this summer. They really wanna get the nhl playoffs astounding out of the way before the olympic start. So there's this window where they got to cram as many games as they can so they didn't waste any time getting started. Well one of the outcomes of this relatively quick playoff start is at the vancouver canucks who had a bad covert outbreak earlier. This year are still playing regular season games even though the playoffs have already started their in what appears to be a completely meaningless. Three-game series against the calgary flames. So are you or is anyone planning to watch those games. I don't think the ratings will be very good. No it's this never happened before in. Nhl history one hundred and three years of history for the league and they never had anything like this happened before they have tv rights agreements. That are a lot of money advertising agreements that are a lot of money and they didn't want to get new situation where they were shortchanging those media partners. And we're going to have to pay some money back because sure you know it's been a tough situation for the league revenue wise. They're down three and a half billion dollars from where they normally would be as as an entity as a league. They're trying to make sure that they can play out the season. And we've had headlines on our site that are you know things like oh connects are still playing for some reason or like you know here. Here's an article about the game. If you still care you know it's it's you know to be fair to the nhl in a normal season. There's a lot of teams that are eliminated with month or two months left in the season and they're playing a lot of meaningless game so it just doesn't quite look this meaningless at the place already started.

Everybody around the nhl feels awful at what the vancouver canucks are going through right now and elliott as we tape this podcast record this podcast On a sunday evening. What is the very latest with this ongoing situation. Well look the covert list expanded again. On sunday night sixteen players listed on it. And you know we should mention that just because you're on it doesn't mean you have it but one of the things that the nhl has basically assumed here is that it's going to go through everyone and even if it doesn't and you hope it doesn't you automatically assume it does and that's the way they look at it when it was going through dallas. That's the way they looked at it. When was going through buffalo. And you know there's been some debate about white symptoms. That players did or didn't have. I'm not getting into that. I think that's crazy. I think that what we have here is that we know it's the variant The brazilian variant. We know there's a player jas horlock who had covert originally last march and now has it again. So there's a lot of things to be concerned about here. We know that not everybody had symptoms. We know that some had symptoms more severe than others and that the ones who did have the severe symptoms. Unfortunately they went through an awful lot. Like basically what i've heard. Is that the roughest outbreak in terms. Of what the players went through generally considered to be buffalo's i think for those players who did have symptoms. This one has been considered rougher than that

And I think there's a bench clearing brawl and. It was just an insane game to watch against a rival. It was just really cool to be there. And then to get you know to get in to have that experience in a winner Kelly Cup with them experience. All never forget. And and it's a huge, you know, stepping stone for why I got to play in the NHL. There's probably a ton of Z H L players. Now who watched you win the Stanley Cup last year and became aware of that stat that are sitting there and saying I can do that. Like, I'm going to be that guy. That's my dream. And I'm curious when you were on that path where most of your family and friends supportive of you. Or was there anybody who said Jay, you know, maybe it's time to find something else to do. Yeah. I know they've always been supportive. Yeah. It was always supportive always positive. You know, I never was drafted in any league. So it was one of those things where I just kept playing because I love to play. I really did. I just I love the play hockey. And where was the next place I could play so from college. I I got the opportunity to go to Boise, and it was. It was something that you know, everyone was real positive excited for me. They they, you know, I never looked too far in the future. I always was just, you know, living in the moment. And so no one was ever. Okay. It's not gonna work out for you. You're not that good. So yeah, no, it was always very experienced morbid curiosity because people have asked me if if you hadn't made in media, what would you do? And I always answer. I'd be a lawyer. And I'd be miserable. If you hadn't if you hadn't made in hockey. What would you be doing electronic? Yeah. One of my best friend's father was an electrical. Yeah. Yeah.
