While the Canucks wrapped up their road trip with a dominant win in Ottawa, a dismal loss at home against the Pittsburgh Penguins - a game where a loud Fire Benning chant was heard on broadcast & a jersey was thrown on the ice - resulted in some late-night Sunday changes here in Vancouver. Jim Benning, John Weisbrod, Travis Green & Nolan Baumgartner are out. Bruce Boudreau & Scott Walker are in. The Steamer is the interim. And this all took place on a night where we planned on recording the podcast early as it was. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

With the Vancouver Canucks about to wrap up another rough road trip in Ottawa, Anna & Chris wonder if the win against the Montreal Canadians is enough to steady the ship. Speaking of the Canadians, who knew that you could make changes this early in a season after going to the Stanley Cup Final the year before!? The pair also wonder if changes will be made upon the Canucks returning to Vancouver, or if it's simply a quesiton that will continue to be asked day-by-day. Learn more about your ad choices.

In a week that contained a fairly comfortable win, a one-goal loss, and a loss to one of the league’s best teams, Chris and Anna find a way to be negative - though they still believe this podcast is the C4 Canucks Playoffs Podcast. The Vancouver Canucks don't look good, have yet to figure out how to shore up the penalty kill, are taking things day-to-day after some internal meetings, and are making all sorts of phone calls too. What a time to be a fan! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Despite this still being the C4 Canucks Playoffs Podcast, there's not much to suggest a storm is brewing with the effort the Vancouver Canucks provided on this recent roadtrip. Anna & Chris recap how it all went so wrong, whether or not a change on the bench or in the front-office will happen, and if this team is as poorly constructed as some suggest. The two also take a look back at Jim Benning's tenure as a General Manager in Vancouver and ascertain if "two more years" is what's needed for the Canucks to win a Cup.

After a rough start to their opening homestand, the Vancouver Canucks not only figured how to score on the power play - at least against the Dallas Stars - yet they also figured out how to get two wins out of three in the past week. So long as you ignore the lacklustre effort in two of those games, and the requirement that Thatcher Demko go full matrix to make save after save. Anna & Chris talk stock of the week that was, wonder about the week that will be, and discuss what changes will be made - to goaltender safety, to hockey culture, to the leaders of the NHL and the NHLPA.

After going .500 on the road, the Vancouver Canucks found themselves back at home in front a full barn with expectations they'd continue the trend of manufacturing points. Unfortunately, this hasn't been the case. Anna & Chris discuss what's going on, if it's something more than the usual "October duldrums," and when the team will find a way to get itself going. The two then discuss the news of the past week that the NHL has a significant culture issue, one that allowed the Chicago Blackhawks to put a Stanley Cup ahead of protecting one of its own, and what faith they have (if any) that things will ever change.

Anna & Chris break the past week down while wondering how you fix the Lotto Line, why Connor Garland is so darn adorable, what it will be like to see a full house at Rogers Arena and so much more.

The 2021-22 NHL season is now underway and the Canucks are midway through an swing out East to kick off their campaign. With points two out of three games, Vancouver finds itself working out the early season kinks while missing a top player in Brock Boeser. Anna and Chris share their thoughts on Travis Green's early line deployment, whether or not it's too early to suggest Vancouver won the OEL trade, and why they can't wait for the game against the Seattle Kraken. Plus talk about pill culture and what they want to see change to bring the game into a modern era. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Vancouver Canucks preseason is complete. The start of season roster is only hours (when this was recorded) away. Alex Chiasson is currently on the ice with the first power play pairing, as well as what appears to be the first line. What is going on?! Chris rejoins Anna to wonder if the Canucks poor preseason record is anything to worry about, whether Olli Juolevi got a fair shake in Vancouver, why Phillip Di Giuseppe didn't make the cut, and whether or not it's time to remove fighting from the NHL game.

With a couple of preseason games in the books - one in Spokane and another in Abbotsford - we're starting to get an idea of who's got a chance to make the big club, which players are going to meet our high expectations, and how things will look in a world that might not include Pettersson & Hughes in the early going (through Anna & Chris still hold out hope a deal is signed soon). Add in their thoughts & opinions on other pressing issues around the league and you have yourself a solid episode (albeit a bit late).

Chris (@lyteforce) is MIA (maybe check Matt Lee's basement just in case) so Anna (@aforsyth03) has roped in the new Kraken beat reporter Marisa Ingemi (@Marisa_Ingemi) to talk all things Seattle hockey. Join us as Anna grills Marisa on just how you build a successful hockey team, how Seattle is doing so far, and what's to come. They also get into the murky world of "hockey culture" and how we change it. We hope you've enjoyed our summer series on Seattle (please listen to our episodes with Sound of Hockey if you haven't yet!) but unfortunately, we will back to focusing on the Canucks soon - although the rivalry with those damn smart sea creatures will never be far from our minds.

The Vancouver Canucks tumultuous 2021 season has finally come to a close, the post-seasons pressers are done, and ownership has shared a message to season ticket holders. Anna & Chris react to the news that Jim Benning is back for another kick at the can, and has finally given Travis Green a contract extension - albeit only two years. Francesco shared his yearly "factors beyond our control" apology to season ticket holders and asks that we fans continue to have faith. And the NHL playoffs are in full swing, as is the enforcement of the "code" which is the silliest of it all.

They also address the Tryamkin in the room (or lack thereof), the recent news on the "Green Extension," and tackle a very serious conversation during the "F-Word" (as we mention early in the episode, we discuss the topic of sexual assault).

After two uninspired performances from the Canucks before their one-week break, Anna & Chris decided to pick up the slack with an inspired podcast episode. The two kick around a few ideas on what the Canucks can do leading up to the trade deadline, and try to figure out if simply suggesting "So you say they have a chance," is sufficient to remain optimistic with their playoff chances. Then you have Darryl Sutter being Darryl Sutter over in Calgary and Tim Peel slipping up and taking the fall on behalf of the NHL and there's a whole lot of code to be cracked.

Somehow, someway, the Vancouver Canucks have continued to scrape together wins & points against and find themselves on the precipice of above .500 hockey. To help break what's going on down is Mike Paris, co-host of the Game Time Decision podcast. Mike, Anna, and Chris discuss whether or not the Canucks are truly a "good team" and wonder aloud if Artem Chubarov's car is still stuck under Rogers Arena (really!!). They also spend some time discussing the evolution of the Canucks podcasting landscape and what it's like for aspiring podcasters and content creators to get their start now.

The Vancouver Canucks have six wins in their last ten games, most of which they've played without Elias Pettersson. And despite this, they remain two games below .500 & three points out of a playoff spot - held by the Montreal Canadians who have games in hand. Helping break down whether the Canucks have a chance is Jawn Jang, formerly of Sportsnet 650AM and currently with CKNW 980AM. Jawn, Anna & Chris discuss the week that was and wonder if the team gets any points against the Habs in the week that will be. And having crunched some simple numbers, Chris comes to a shocking realization about the team's performance over the decades he's been following them.

Last episode, Anna & Chris demanded the Vancouver Canucks grab points off the Edmonton Oilers. Unfortunately, the Canucks didn't listen - despite going up 3-0 early in the first game against the Oil. After a short break to collect themselves, they decided to take a different approach with a 3-0 lead against the Winnipeg Jets and found themselves a solid win. Is it enough to turn the tides? Or do the Canucks remain rudderless? And while the trade deadline is still over a month away, scuttlebutt has Jake Virtanen possibly on the move. Unless you're Kevin Paul Dupont who thinks it could be Petey or Hughes.
