    It’s a celebratory show as we celebrate what would have been the 20 year anniversary of Team/TSN 1040 sports talk radio.

    The Welcome Matt features a special appearance from legendary sportscaster David Pratt. Big Daddy shares his story and his favourite moments while working at 1040. 

    One of the founders of 1040 Tom Mayenknecht follows and explains just how the station came to fruition and why the late Paul Carson and Tom thought that sports talk radio could work in Vancouver.

    Our Friday Canucks insider Rick Dhaliwal joins next. Dhali was a day one employee at 1040 and once had a legendary night in Vegas that will live forever in Vancouver sports talk lore. 

    Iain McLetchie follows a condensed version of Tell Me I’m Wrong and divulges what 1040 had planned for the 20 year anniversary and his tales during his 15+ years working at the station.

    Jeff Paterson joins for his last hit of the week. J Pat was also a long time 1040 employee who saw and did almost everything at the station over his two stints, including doing play-by-play for a boxing match at the River Rock. 

    We play Hot Take for the last time this week, where Andrew drops a take that Matt and Blake just can’t wrap their heads around.

    Errors and Omissions wraps up the show as we head into the weekend.

    Back for another big show and this one is as exciting as a Rangers-Capitals game.

    The Welcome Matt wonders why the public distain for Wayne Gretzky potentially joining ESPN’s hockey broadcast crew. 

    Our old friend Pierre McGuire joins to give his take on the Rangers - Capitals game from yesterday. Pierre was on the broadcast and stated that he feels that whole ordeal could have been squashed if the NHL had just suspended Tom Wilson for his antics the game before.

    Thomas Drance follows Hashtags and begins by giving his dream team of analysts for ESPN and TNT to add to their NHL coverage next year. Drancer also fills us in on what he’s hearing on the Travis Green contract extension. 

    Jeff Paterson follows Tell Me I’m Wrong and gives his opinion on Gretzky potentially being on the ESPN NHL broadcasts. Jeff gives his thoughts on Canucks prospect Jonah Gadjovich warning that despite a positive season in Utica, that there are some issues with the young forward including his foot speed and suggests that he thinks that Quinn Hughes will not compete for the United States in the World Championship. 

    We play another edition of Take 5, and it’s a spicy debate.

    The show concludes with all the Errors and Omissions.

    Another day, more crazy news coming out of the NHL.

    The Welcome Matt breaks down what it’s going to take for the Canucks to move their AHL team to Abbotsford. 

    Colin Stephenson from Newsday in New York fills us in on what exactly is happening with the Rangers after the organization parted ways unexpectedly with president John Davidson and general manager Jeff Gorton earlier in the day. 

    Former Abbotsford Heat play-by-play announcer Brandon Astle follows Hashtags and tells us that he always felt that the Canucks would move their AHL farm team one day to the Fraser Valley. 

    The Price is Right asks why not give young goaltender Mikey DiPietro a shot before the Canucks season comes to a close. 

    Jeff Paterson joins for his daily hit and gives his take on the wild Rangers-Capitals game that featured six fights, including a line brawl, in the first five minutes of the game. J Pat also elaborated on the Canucks moving their farm team to Abbotsford, and how he feels that it is a good business move for the Aquilini family.

    Connor McDavid puts on a clinic versus the Canucks last night, but this show starts with talk about the antics of Capitals forward Tom Wilson.

    The Welcome Matt takes aim at the CFL and the Canadian player ratio. Sekeres wonders what will happen to the ratio if the league partners up with the XFL down south. 

    Tarik El-Bashir joins from the Athletic in Washington, DC gives his take on the Wilson attack on Pavel Buchnevich and Artemi Panarin last night, and the subsequent fine that Wilson was assessed by the NHL department of player safety. 

    Our Tuesday Canucks insider Harman Dayal follows Hashtags and gives his perspective on the Wilson situation. Harman also wonders how Travis Green can’t be frustrated right now with the amount of injuries he’s got in his lineup, and gives his scouting report on Jack Rathbone and what the young prospect can bring to the Canucks lineup. 

    Tell Me I’m Wrong features an abundance of voice submissions from the audience.

    Jeff Paterson follows to tee up another edition of the Canucks and Oilers tonight at Rogers Arena, focusing on the NHL debut from Rathbone.

    Another week and boy is there a lot of news to get to! 

    After some pleasantries exchanged about how everyone spent their weekend, Sekeres dives into the Welcome Matt, which unpacks the Jake Virtanen allegations, Nikita Tryamkin sticking in the KHL, and just how much of a disaster this season has been for the Canucks organization on and off the ice. 

    Patrick Johnston from The Province joins next and begins by stating what he’s been hearing about the sexual misconduct allegations Virtanen has been accused of. PJ feels that this is the end of Virtanen’s time with the organization, while also questioning how the team handled the release on the Virtanen news, wondering why no one from the management side or ownership spoke on the allegations. The interview wraps with PJ’s thoughts on Tryamkin signing back in the KHL.

    Our Monday NHL insider John Shannon follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter, and lets us in on what he’s been hearing from the NHL in regard to the Virtanen investigation. John also suggests that all the teams in the league will play out their seasons, as it will cost money for the games not to be played. 

    The Price is Right looks at the lack of playoff races in all of the divisions in the NHL. 

    Jeff Paterson joins for his daily hit and begins by stating that he thinks the Virtanen’s days as a Vancouver Canuck are over. J Pat also goes over just how dire things are getting for the Canucks forward group, who now have eight players upfront that are on the injury list, and why he thinks that Tryamkin’s decision to stay in Russia has nothing to do with the Canucks current coaching staff. 

    We play Memo To on a Monday and wrap up the show with all the Errors and Omissions.
