With Ian out today, we're dedicating almost all of today's show to talking Kraken and the NHL with Mike Benton, Dave Tomlinson, and Everett Fitzhugh. No, the Kraken aren't having the same inaugural-season success that the Golden Knights had, but how do they compare to other first-seasons for NHL expansion teams? Where is Music City; Detroit or Nashville? Winnipeg Jets head coach Paul Maurice resigns. Jack Michaels, TV voice of the Oilers joins the show to discuss the Kraken's matchup with Edmonton.
As we continue to add some Canadian flavour to today's show, Dave Tomlinson shares stories about Nickelback and Bryan Adams. We continue the Canadian music theme as Jeff Marek of Sportsnet and Hockey Night in Canada talks all things The Tragically Hip... and also a preview of the Blue Jays and Kraken's Sunday matchup. Softy is extra amped up before the afternoon show (maybe he hit up a Tim Horton's on his way in).
Puck and Jim are joined by their good friends Chris Egan to catch up and chat about COVID spreading like a wildfire in the NFL, plus Xmas shopping, and more. Puck the Picker vs Moore's Lock of the week is back as Jim looks to improve his record and Puck is confident he can catch Jim. And Ian is out but we have Mike Benton and Dave Tomlinson filling in today and they join Puck and Jim on Cross Talk!
Urban Meyer is no longer the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He's proven once again that he's a paper tiger, never actually living up to his reputation. Yesterday, we had WSU football coach Jake Dickert on the show, and Ian asked him about the rumor that Jayden de Laura might enter the transfer portal. Today, we react to his response. Cam Cleeland checks in one last time this year to discuss the hiring of Kalen DeBoer, the transfer portal, and the 2022 schedule. New COVID cases are popping up all over sports. Is the NHL about to make schedule adjustments because of the uptick? Dave Tomlinson has the answer, plus more thoughts on the Kraken after a short road trip.

Russell Wilson denies that he's said anything about waiving his no-trade clause. So... did his agent (or someone else in his camp) say it? Are we better with or without Russell Wilson? At this point, the answer is almost definitely with him, even with the way he's played the last year or so. Does rooting against your team make you less of a fan? In reality, there are circumstances in which it makes sense for you to hope your team loses, but the Hawks, a team without a first-round pick in the upcoming draft, stand to gain virtually nothing by tanking. Dave Tomlinson joins the show to talk all things hockey. what should we expect from the Jets tonight?
Yesterday we heard comments both from Mike Holmgren on this show, and Pete Carroll during his press conference, discussing the Russell Wilson situation. We start off today's show by replaying the comments from both coaches. So what is the biggest factor hurting the Seahawks' offense right now? We get Cam Cleeland's perspective. The Kraken are back home after a relatively successful road trip. Dave Tomlinson shares his takeaways from this team after its first 23 games.

Yes, the Huskies have annouced their new head coach will be Jim Mora ....the Connecticut Huskies. In another big football move, the Rams are getting OBJ.

The Sabres have traded Jack Eichel to the Golden Knights, making another Western Conference team more dangerous once Eichel is healthy. Ian explains why the Aaron Rodgers vaccine story matters, but what we really want to know is will he play against the Seahawks? Cam Cleeland discusses the Oregon vs. Washington rivalry. Kraken radio analyst Dave Tomlinson tells us what we need to know about tonight's matchup with the Sabres.

With the news that Kyle Beach has come forward as the victim in the Blackhawks sexual abuse scandal, Ian takes a few minutes to discuss the issue, the history, and the need for a change in hockey's culture. On a more upbeat note, Mike Holmgren will enter the Ring of Honor this morning. Chuck and Buck talked with both Brett Favre and Steve Young about Coach Holmgren.

Newly-named Kraken radio analyst Dave Tomlinson makes his first appearance on the show in his new role with what to expect tonight as the Kraken take on the Wild.
Captain Gregg Bell of the Tacoma Tribune joined Matt and Blake. Before we got to the Monday Nighter, he expressed his excitement for the Kraken home opener on Saturday that he is covering. On to the Seahawks, he said that nobody envisioned this. No Wilson, no Carson. They've been 2-4 before and made the playoffs, but that team had RW3. The backups are there for break glass for emergency only but this is longer than that. Make no mistake, they are up against it. Talked about ways to overcome not having some of their stars. Will see more of a run game with Penny coming back. Talked about Jamal Adams and what he meant by the best in the nation. He got a video that went viral 10 years ago of a then high school player in FLA who was shot and killed as a 31 year old father of three. Another fantastic reunion here on Sekeres and Price as we welcome the Colour Analyst for the Seattle Kraken, Dave Tomlinson to the show. Talked about being ready for the home opener and being one of those rare occasions where he has to do more research on his team than the away team. Talked about the process of being getting hired for the job. Told a funny story of having to get googled to get through the border. Talked about the Kraken. They also had a road trip that didn't do them any favours. Just got into their arena for the first time yesterday. Their forwards are very interchangeable, referenced Gourd and McCann. Ran through what he thought of the Canucks and their stars who are “fine” but not starring. See's some similarities between this year's version as he does this year. The Canucks need to look like a team, escaping with a win won't be good enough. Seattle will be high energy and high octane. Talked about what we will see production wise for the home opener. Says they took a page from Vegas. The King of Crown, Rick Dhaliwal joined the show in his regular Friday spot. Says not to worry about Petey, he didn't go from a 7 million dollar player to a 1 million dollar player overnight. Talked about the deployment of the lotto line and them being broken up. Miller probably isn't doing cartwheels on the third line. Travis has his quirks as a coach. Rick doesn't understand Boeser being on PP2, he should be on PP1 as a 6 million plus player. Talked about Poolman and how he had more money elsewhere but thought he would be a good fit here and could fill in that Tanev role. Dhali really likes the way the Burroughs and Rathbone have been really good. Dowling has been great while playing the waiting game for Motte. Talks about the waiver wire and that the team has been hunting high and low for players in Abbotsford. Wouldn't be surprised if they bring in some toughness. Jeff Paterson joined the show show in his regular spot and started off with a bit of breaking news regarding the Abby Canucks. Talked about the lotto line. Talked about Seattle and is willing to throw down some cash that there will be a fight as the Kraken have by far and away the most players to drop the gloves, already this season. Talked about OEL and his ability to get shots through. Nice to see a 23 on the Canucks not directing pucks into shin pads. He has been a nice addition for the club. Kraken have struggled to score goals early this season and the Canucks will be hoping that those struggles still continue. Talked about Scotty and that it was fun to hear him back on Vancouver airwaves. Previewed Rink Wide and what is coming up. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

We now know who will take the ice for the Kraken, unless of course those players are traded, adn some of them probably will be. We expected we'd see more moves today in fact, though just one has taken place so far. With thoughts on Seattle's inaugural players, and what the team may do next, we check in with Dave Tomlinson. The NFL is setting some pretty harsh policies for any team that has a COVID outbreak among unvaccinated players, including forfeiting any games missed, and not being paid for that week. Some players, notably DeAndre Hopkins, has taken to social media to complain. Puckpedia is a great resource if you're trying to pick up the game of hockey before the Kraken get started. Joining us from Puckpedia, Hart Levine gives a primer on NHL free agency and the salary cap.

Big show to kickoff the week, and we're doing it live from the Canucks Alumni charity golf tournament. Special edition of the Welcome Matt where Sekeres sits down with former Canucks owner Arthur Griffiths. They go over the '94 cup run and talk about the modern day team, including some discussion on the AHL affiliate heading to Abbotsford.

Hashtags today features former Canucks great Cliff Ronning, who talks about what's happening with the Canucks alumni, how his son Ty has developed this year in the AHL, and who is the best golfer out of the alumni. Our Monday insider John Shannon joins next and expands on the 2011 Stanley Cup final, stating that it was British Columbia versus the world in that series, whether he thinks the Canadiens have a chance to beat the Golden Knights, and gives us a look into the Canucks run to the cup in 1982, which John produced the entire series for Hockey Night in Canada. The Price is Right features a chat with Rogers Arena PA announcer Al Murdoch, who elaborates on how the atmosphere was this season calling games in an empty arena. Canucks colour analyst John Garrett follows and tells us what it was like to broadcast games this year from empty arenas and off monitors when the team was on the road, whether or not he got fatigued calling games with the same six opponents, and his choice to go with his natural grey hair this season. Our good friend Dave Tomlinson sits down with the boys for a chat with Jeff Paterson. The guys wax on about all the Canucks cup runs.
