Pro Football Hall of Famer, Charean Williams joined the show. Started off by talking about TEN knocking off a couple of playoff teams from last year. You start with Derrick Henry and who is the only non-QB in the MVP conversation. He has an uphill climb to get there but he has been that good. Talked about the Bengals and that they look like they will be a good team for a long time. It's been a really long time since they've been able to do something special and the fans have been waiting. It's a good team on all sides of the ball. Talked about the Monday Nighter. Expecting Saints to win this. They are getting healthy at the right time. Despite the weather… Talked about the fan who got Brady's 600th TD ball. John Shannon, NHL Insider joined Matt and Blake and started talking about Seattle and a few of his adventures have been in Seattle. Says the first ever intro was conservative. It was nothing special. Says that MTL is one of the best in the NHL. The teams have been able to use the arena. Was shocked there wasn't a giant squid coming out of the ice. Take Johnny Lumberjack, or Johnny Canuck or whatever you want to call him… have him in the tentacles and have at him. Talked about if they even have a Kraken at the ready. Throws out that thought that maybe they ran out of money. Talked about more about Seattle and their playoff hopes. They can't score goals. You've got an issue if your two top guys are Eberle and McCann. Talked about MTL. They are not a very good team, they have no character. They fluke their way to the Stanley Cup Final last year by playing the momentum game. This should not be a surprise. Nobody in Vancouver is complaining about Toffoli not being here this year. Our Canucks Reporter, Jeff Paterson joined in his regular spot to talk about seeing the Canucks today with his own two eyes. Talked about what we saw in Seattle on the weekend. Was underwhelmed with the pre-game ceremony. Talked about Elias Pettersson and his media availability today. He stood in there and took everything. Thinks it's a sign of maturity to play the game with the media. He provided insight to his game and how he has been playing as of late. He can be prickly at times, today it was different. John Garrett, Vancouver Canucks Colour Commentator, joined Matt and Blake. He started off by chatting about coming back to the booth after a bout with Covid. Says he feels pretty good. He is double vaxxed and doesn't know how he came down with it. Talked about the process and how he found out, when he was in EDM. He was the only one of his close contacts that came away with a positive result. Fortunately he had all the sports packs. Plenty of Young and the Restless, lots of books. Cheech talked about the game vs Seattle. Loves the arena and everyone he has talked to has said it was spectacular. It was something that he was really looking forward to. When they made it 2-1, he was thinking oh-no. Thought they deserved better in Detroit. BUF was a disappointment. The team has that competitive edge. Says that Conor Garland is living up to the billing. He is a talented player and aggravating to play against. He will draw a lot of penalties and hopefully the Canucks can cash in on them. Talked about Demko and that there is no doubt he is the number 1. Talked about EP40. Knowing him and his personality, doesn't think he puts more pressure on himself. He is that confident that he will come around, length and number of contract doesn't factor in. Now that there is a long homestead, Travis will be able to put in the matchups he wants.

Charean Williams, Mother Football, joined the guys to recap week 6 of the NFL season. Started off with the Seahawks and how they look with RW3 on the sidelines. She has never seen anything like it before. He was probably as involved as Geno Smith was in the game. He is trying to do his part while being out. She thinks Cam Newton makes perfect sense for them. Though, it might not make sense for Cam. He would want to go somewhere that isn't temporary. They needed to do it last week after he got hurt. Talked about Dallas and their injured QB. They need to make sure he is fit so it doesn't come back to bight them. John Shannon, Monday regular joined Matt and Blake and started off by chatting about the broadcast quality for the NHL's new American partners. Says that when they paid as much as they did they have a right to try new things but that existing methods are tried and true. Talked about Evander Kane and his 21 game suspension. Also about his thoughts on Travis Hamonic and his situation. Says the Canucks can't even legally talk about his vaccination status. You take the team for their word and move on. Talked about the salary cap. Referenced Luongo's contract that the Canucks are still paying. It hasn't been a smooth ride from the start of the cap era but thinks that they've got almost every loop-hole closed. Talked about Tampa Bay and their familiar problems on the injury front. John says he doesn't think Tampa is panicking. Even though they aren't as deep as they were last year. Jeff Paterson joined the show in his usual slot to talk about the Canucks. Started off by saying they haven't scored first in any of their games. Says they may need to win a face off for starters. They are dead last in the league right now. EP40 can't be a legitimate first line centre if he continues at 25% in the circle. Talked about the special teams. Team has given up a PP goal in each of their three games. Talked to what Tyler Motte brings to the PK. Was hoping that we would have seen him sometime this trip. Jeff's hunch is that we won't see him as he isn't with the team currently. Talked about Hamonic and his leave of absence. Something doesn't pass the smell test with the word “temporary”. Says we are going down the same road as last year. He was dreadful to start the season. The radio voice of the Vancouver Whitecaps, Corey Basso joined Matt and Blake after another big win by the team over SKC. Talked about the roller coaster of a season it has been. Says he doesn't know if it would be the same if they didn't come back to BC Place and were still in Salt Lake. One can only wonder what the season would have looked like had they been here the entire time. Talked about the team being in lock-step with those teams around them. Talked about Russell Teibert. There has been some criticism of him but when he scores, they are big goals. Ran through the schedule and how it could play out. Talked about Vanni Sartini and if he has a shot at the permanent job. Says that he has a different approach than that of Dos Santos. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Plus, hear Florio's exclusive interviews with Jags' quarterback Trevor Lawrence, and Vikings' wide receiver K.J. Osborn.
Patrick Johnston of Post Media joined Matt and Blake after a busy long weekend for the Canucks. Talked about the Juolevi trade and his thoughts. Says they did well if well means to get a bust of a first rounder out of the picture. Talked about what Juulsen will bring to Abbotsford. Talked about Chiasson and what he will bring to the team. Well casted as a 4th line guy who can move up in a pinch, having played with McDavid and Draisaitl. Talked about Boeser and when he could be back. PJ's best guess is that it's muscular. Because we haven't seen him skates suggests that it could be something there. Says the ice in Abby wasn't great. Charean Williams joined the show after a busy Week 5 in the NFL and Jon Gruden resigning as head coach of the Raiders. She didn't cover JG on a regular basis in her time in Tampa. Talked about the emails, it's a lot to take in 650 thousand. The question of who leaked them has not been answered. She guarantees that he isn't the only one to talk and think like this. Thinks that is someone from the NFL who released them and wanted Gruden gone. Thinks that we might see some resignations that makes no sense on the surface that could stem from these emails. Talked about the Seahawks and if it is time to tear it down and rebuild. Didn't know where they were headed with Russell Wilson, now it's even more up in the air. Threw a trade scenario with HOU to maybe get a Deshaun Watson once all his legal matters are settled. Talked about Josh Allen and the Bills and taking the next step after making a huge statement against KC on the weekend. Charean talked about Urban Meyer and how much longer is in in the pro game. To get rid of him, you will need a negotiation. If he makes it past the bye-week, he will keep his job for the rest of the season. This has not worked out for either party. Our Canucks reporter, Jeff Paterson joined in his regular spot. Started off by chatting about our poll question and if he is happy with the Canucks roster. Says there are a few too many holes for his liking. Talked about Brock Boeser and his physical state, based on what he saw at the rink. Talked about Chiasson and how he has worked his way onto his last three teams via the PTO. JPat thinks Motte is closer than we initially anticipated. Talked about where Rathbone might land in the lineup for the first game, if he does at all… Yet another entertaining edition of Hot Take Tuesday with sizzlers being handed out like candy.

The show kicked off today starting with Matt Sekeres and Blake Price talking about the finalizing of the contracts of Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes. They talk about 40 only signing a 3 year deal and what it could look like for him at the conclusion of the deal. The ‘Welcome Matt' was on the weekend that was for Vancouver Sports and what we now know about the fabric of our local teams. Charean Williams joined the guys after a busy week 4 and started talking about the Sunday Nighter, between Brady v Belichick. Says it was really a boring game and didn't end the way you would want a game of that ilk to end. Charean talked about what it would have taken for an ending that you would have wanted. A little disappointing the way it played out with Brady not getting any TD passes, despite breaking the overall yards record. She thinks we saw a little bit of Brady not being able to control his emotions and that is when we see him at his worst. Rain could have played a part of that. She talked about the Seahawks and how big a win it was for them over the weekend. You don't want to lose division games with that being the tie breaker. It will all come down to that. Thought they handled it real well. Talked about the Cardinals and that Kyler Murray would be at the top of the MVP list, thought she knows it's only four weeks in… Talked about Monday Nighter and who needs its more. John Shannon, joined the show and started talking about the the Jays coming up a little short in their bid for the post-season. Following that John offers his thoughts on what could be a tough season for Bettman and all the PR issues that his office will need to manage. He says that the players union will also be in a bit of damage control. Talks about Ambien and its role in the game. Talked about the Lehner tweets and John wonders if this could reflect poorly on Nolan Patrick and if he might be the source behind the comments. John asks how much of this is on the player compared to the trainer who may provide it. The league is going to have to pay attention and not stick their head in the sand. Talked about the signing of 40&43. Talked about if Brady Tkachuk might be getting lonely on the island and what kind of contract he might be looking for. With the three of them getting into detail about where both Tkachuk's could eventually end up with all their connections, even past their father. Jeff Paterson joined Matt and Blake in his regular spot and after a busy weekend, started talking about Brock Boeser and when we might see him back. JPat talked about the effort of Nils Höglander over the weekend. Said the Jets didn't come close to touching him in the first period. Talked about how fun he is to watch in person. In reference to Boeser being out, it's not as simple as asking for one winger to replace that line. Who know's what they do with JT Miller as he will be more of a hybrid player for them. Talked about the game presentation from yesterday and how it stacks up compared to other teams. Noted that it was only Hughes that thanks Benning and the Canucks and not EP40. Talked about cuts to the team and the likes of Jett Woo and Klimovich. JPat doesn't think Chiasson has done enough to earn and NHL contract. It would be a preferred option to scour the waiver wire to find a suitable option. They are looking hard at their special teams options. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

She thinks the Chargers have a good chance to win the AFC West but that the Chiefs will be there in the end. Talked about how worried she is about Seattle. Picked them the win the division and right now they are the worst team in the division. Likes Dallas tonight, will go into the 4th but Cowboys will pull ahead. NHL Insider, John Shannon joined the guys and right off the hop we talked Elias Pettersson and whether or not missing Hamonic could help with the cap problem. He thinks that if Benning had his way, Hamonic would be in Abbotsford getting ready for the game tonight. The last few days has been difficult to get through to the respective parties as they try to hammer this out without the media. He talked about the Kraken and the scene in Spokane. Says that there is way more of a hockey IQ in Spokane than Seattle. Talked about how he would go about producing a broadcast. He thinks it's a very immature hockey town. They would rather see what kind of ice-cream Jordan Eberle eats. They would be missing the boat if they don't focus on people stories. John talked about the game not being on regional television last night and says he isn't losing sleep over it not being on locally. Sekeres & Price Canucks Reporter, Jeff Paterson joined in his regular spot. Started off by chatting about Travis Hamonic.

Talked about the Ravens deciding to go for it on 4th down. Finished up with her thoughts on the officiating. News flash, it's not good. John Shannon joined the guys and started to talk about what he thinks the Canucks playoffs chances are. He looked around the rest of the Western Conference to see which division has the edge in playoff teams. Talked about Edmonton and how they should do this season, with all their talent. John talked about family weighing in on brothers contract situations, like the Hughes' and Tkachuk's. Admits that it jumps off the page but doesn't think there is much to fuss about. He mentioned that there was a time, not too long ago, that the cap was expected to around 100 million dollars. With everything that has gone on, it won't be even close to that for the next 4 years. Jeff Paterson joined in his regular spot and started to talk about the debut episode of Rink Wide. Wrapped up rookie camp from last week. Talked about allowing fans into training camp in Abbotsford.
