It’s Getting Ugly – Alive for the Playoffs episode 2 vs. Blackhawks

The Canucks Outsider hockey renegadesThe Canucks Outsider bench of hockey renegades convened for a hap-hazard episode of the Alive for the Playoffs 2009.

Like the Canucks without Sami Salo, minus cameraman Dale, our squad lacked focus and finish but with enough Bar-b-q and beer, we managed to survive the night in better shape the beleaguered Canucks who turned in their first clinker of the playoffs.

The good news abounds as the series is 1-1 and the Canucks have shown great resiliency this season and frankly, this *is* the first loss of the Playoffs – we weren’t really gonna sweep all 16 right?

The Alive for the Playoffs roster featured Ian the Goalie who appeared in the “Rickety Roller Coaster Ride” episode #65 – we revisited fave topics like Kyle Wellwood, the NHL’s suspension policies regarding headshots, International rules, NHL ownership foibles, league management of the Coyotes and nuances of the goaltending position. We also broke out the Don Cherry hat and jacket for good luck.

As usual, sage-like Dan Funboy chimed in with his usual assortment of trivia, miscellanea and opinion. Ferg, Richard, Roland, Ianiv, John B., John B2, Karen and Deborah rounded out the scoring.

Ian the Goalie and Dave the hostCheck out the video archive of the episode – due to technical foibles, there are many small segments to wade through and/or peruse Canucks Outsider photos.

Despite the technical challenges, we did manage to improve a few things (stoked out the Ustram channel page), share some hardcore hockey talk, and gave out sealed packs of 1991 hockey cards without gum but featuring holograms (which apparently don’t age well).

What’s Wrong with the Canucks? Canucks Outsider on BC Almanac – CBC Radio 1 (2009)

On the cbc bc almanac show

With the Canucks mired in a futility streak, BC Almanac invited me down for a chat on the popular CBC Radio 1 afternoon radio show “B.C. Almanac” on Jan. 30, 2009. I’ve appeared on a the show before along with On the Coast, and really enjoy going to the Ceeb and sharing my punditry with my fellow Canadians.

During this segment, I fielded calls from Canucks fans around BC (Penticton, Nanaimo, Fort St. John … ?) including 85 and 87 year old gentlemen who both brought good conversation and veteran savvy. Topics included coaching, Pat Quinn, Sami Salo, Ryan Johnson, Mats Sundin, chemistry, mediocrity, and psychology.
