    The Canucks’ current struggles are examined, and the pondering over the job security of general manager Jim Benning and coach Travis Green has begun. Who is in more peril? Ed also explains why he thinks the Canucks are stuck in the same spot they’ve been in the last three seasons after seemingly upgrading their defence, bringing in a true top 6 piece in J.T.

Meh it’s ok

Hey they are ok. I miss Botch and JPat, just seems very monotone of a podcast. Look they know the the ins and out of the Canucks and it’s cool, just you can get the same info from more entertaining people.

Not a slight against the hosts, just boring
