The Best Win Of the Season, Bo Leads From Examp...
The Vancouver Canucks beat the Leafs as one of the biggest home underdogs in recent history, and damn did it feel good. After some people questioned Bo Horvat's leadership, he showed them why he is the captain of this team by leading by example on the ice. Alex Edler gets suspended for kneeing Zach Hyman, and Leafs fans think he's the second coming of Matt Cooke for some reason. Brayden Fengler joins the show to talk about all that, how the COVID outbreak could determine future decisions surrounding the team, how to evaluate under difficult circumstances, and much more. -- Follow @nickbondi and @powerofthetowel on Twitter and make sure to rate and review the network on Apple Podcasts!

The NHL trade deadline came and went, and there was quite a bit of action from the Canucks despite this podcast's prediction. Adam Gaudette was shipped off to Chicago (maybe because of COVID), Madison Bowey is here for the expansion draft, and Jordie Benn is flying off to the Winnipeg Jets. Alex Blair of the On Air podcast joins the show to break down all things trade deadline, Tanner Pearson's new contract, Jim Benning's future with this hockey team, and much more. We end the show with how this meat grinder of a schedule can be a moment to learn for the Vancouver Canucks. -- Follow @nickbondi and @powerofthetowel on Twitter and make sure to rate and review the network on Apple Podcasts!

Tanner Pearson signed a contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks — Jimbo just won't ever learn will he. Plus we get into the press conference with Jim Bovard and Jim Benning, and why the Canucks will be a quiet team at this year's trade deadline, and for a very valid reason. -- Follow @nickbondi and @powerofthetowel on Twitter, and make sure to rate and review the network on Apple Podcasts.

COVID Crisis and the Two Cornerstones New Deals...
COVID-19 has a grip on the Vancouver Canucks and at this point, everything is on the table. Will the Canucks play all their remaining games, should there even be games, and we go off on how some people have turned this into a referendum on management. Guest Dylan Eckland joins the show to talk about the COVID-19 outbreak on the Canucks, Demko's new deal, and favourite Sedin moments. We end the show with some educated guesses on what Elias Pettersson's and Quinn Hughes' new deals will look like. -- Follow @nickbondi and @powerofthetowel on Twitter, and make sure to rate and review on Apple Podcasts if you enjoyed the episode!

In this episode, we touch on the two main storylines from the team over the past few days. Eight Canucks Players and a member of the coaching staff have tested positive for COVID-19 — the Vancouver Canucks will not be playing hockey again for a significant stretch. Thatcher Demko is getting paid — why was this deal so significant, and how does this shape the future trajectory of this team?

A Delicate Balancing Act, Tempering Expectation...
The Canucks haven't played in what seems like forever, but their place is still not set in stone in the North Division given that Montreal hasn't played in a while. The rest of the season will be a delicate balancing act between looking towards the future and a hockey operations staff that may not have the same intentions. Lachlan Irvine of The Creasecast joins the show to talk about the two-game series against the Winnipeg Jets, some key decisions to be made about this roster, and how to make the playoffs AND sell at the deadline. We end the show with a realistic outlook on what to expect from the Canucks at the trade deadline.

The Canucks lost back-to-back games against the Jets in regulation, all but grounding their chances at a playoff spot. The urgency wasn't there in the first game, but they just didn't get the bounces in the second game. Now, it's time for everyone in Vancouver's favourite season — asset management season. We end the show with some talk on Elias Pettersson's injury, and why the Canucks need to exercise caution.

The Canucks split the series against Montreal and it likely ended their playoff chances, but wasn't it nice to have a game that actually mattered Saturday? The Habs should be barred from playing 3 on 3 OT for the rest of the season, and maybe Holtby should have started Wednesday against the Sens. Plus, do the acquisitions of Jimmy Vesey and Travis Boyd mean the Canucks will be sellers?
The Final Countdown against Montreal, We Want T...
It's put up or shut up time against Montreal. Win both in regulation and you have a shot. Win just one or none, and meaningful games in March goes down the tubes. Why is Nils Hoglander not getting any OT time? What will Jimmy Vesey's role be with the Canucks? Plus we end the show with some Tanner Pearson talk, and why it was imperative in hindsight to be proactive.

The Vancouver Canucks have the best save percentage at five on five in the month of March, and that all has to do with Thatcher Demko. They're starting to grind out wins, but where was this a month ago? Tyler Motte is close to coming back, and we think he will be in the lineup in place of a certain veteran in short order. Arpan Parhar joins the show to talk about the Canucks recent success, Tyler Myers, Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes' next contract, and the seven-player model for building a contender. -- Follow @nickbondi and @powerofthetowel on Twitter, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for full length interviews: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9mHeDPhgxyAZIBn4iDIbfg

1-1 against the Habs this week, and that will not gain you ground in the North Division. Tyler Toffoli didn't embarrass us this time, which was nice. Goalie guru Ian Clark may be gone, and an inconvenient truth that underpins a lot of these decisions. We end the show with why you actually need to have a lot of faith in Jim Benning if you want the Canucks to trade pieces like Nate Schmidt and Tyler Motte.

The Vancouver Canucks achieved their first true moral victory Saturday night — they came back and won a game after giving up the first goal, and they did it in a style that reminded us of last year's team. Elias Pettersson's absence is perhaps creating a bit of Ewing Theory with the team, and we discuss how the Canucks need to run the table (but what else is new). Dan Riccio of Sportsnet 650 joins the show to talk about the series against the Leafs, Thatcher Demko's future with this team, midseason Canucks awards, and much more. -- Follow @nickbondi and @powerofthetowel on Twitter, and make sure to rate and review the Nucks Misconduct network if you enjoyed what you listened to.

Jim Benning addressed the media and it went as well as you expected — it felt like Groundhog Day to a lot of Canucks fans out there. Benning blamed the pandemic, schedule, flat cap, a "strong" Canadian division, but can you really pin it on those things if every other team has to deal with it? We also discuss the three games since our last episode, and why Jake Virtanen's haters are his motivators.

The Canucks exit February a battered and bruised hockey team. They won just two of their 13 games in the month, and also somehow managed to lose games on the 30th and 31st. A Jake Virtanen trade almost happened over the weekend, but his salary is proving to be a stumbling point. Brandon Sutter is somehow the eighth-most valuable player on the potential trading block before the deadline — how the hell is that possible? Joshua Rey of the Avid Discussers podcast to talk about the future of this team, the upcoming trade deadline, what to do with J.T. Miller, and much more.

The Canucks have the highest moral victory point percentage in the NHL, but that doesn't mean much in the real world. They've led in expected goals the last two games, but have just one point to show for it. So it's time to acknowledge the situation — the Vancouver Canucks are not likely making the playoffs. Jamie Dodd of Sportsnet 650 joins the show to talk about Hoglander being a POS (in the best possible way), the future of Travis Green, Nate Schmidt's curious start to his Canucks tenure, and much more.

Francesco "Frank the Tank" Aquilini has sent this team streaking — and a big six-game stretch is coming up. We explain what the Canucks need to do in order to keep their playoff hopes alive, why they're lucky to face the Jets when they are, and why the resurgence of the Lotto Line will be key to this. Brock Boeser is fully healthy and back to his rookie season ways, but don't be surprised if he goes through a slump at some point. We end the show by talking about Nate Schmidt, and why he hasn't been as bad as you think.

The Vancouver Canucks could have a soap opera based on them — they haven't had a boring day in weeks. Saturday marked the debut of The Buyout Line, The Lotto Line was back to their usual self, and oh yeah the owner set off a firestorm with a six tweet thread. Ty Pardy joins the podcast to discuss his thoughts on the future of Jim Benning and Travis Green, what's the best way to use Tyler Myers going forward, should the Canucks regret not re-signing Markstrom and Tanev, plus a bunch more.

We're on a twice-weekly schedule now, as there's just too much to talk about. The Canucks have been involved in two straight games where the opposing team has flipped the switch in the third, and they look like a team waiting for the other shoe to drop. Elias Pettersson is still down bad, and Markstrom gets Calgary the win — is that enough to pull the plug on the Jim Benning experience? Plus we pay tribute to a Vancouver institution we lost on Wednesday, TSN 1040.

Why is the effort level so brutal? What can be done to fix the defence? Are we starting down another extended death march to end the season? Noah Strang of Nucks Misconduct joins the show to talk all that, if Jim Benning should be the GM of this team going forward, why Nils Hoglander might be the only bright spot for this team at the moment, and much more.

This could be a momentous week for the Vancouver Canucks. The runway to get things back on track is shrinking, and it's imperative that the Canucks get a minimum of six points against the Sens and Jets (preferably in regulation.) Petey has a new agent — the same one as Quinn Hughes. Is it time to crack each other's skulls open and feast on the goo inside? And how hot is the seat Jim Benning is sitting on? Brad Thomas of the Point Shot Hockey podcast joins the show to talk about all that, what the Canucks need to do to turn this thing around, and which free agent does this team miss the most.
