This week on the show that finally got fired, FlamesNation columnist MIKE PFEIL -- our man on the ground in Edmonton -- joins the show mourn the loss of the NHL's dumbest GM, and celebrate the legacy of the man who unquestionably ruined the Oilers. PLUS: Why this year's Flames are different, what the NHL got right at this year's All-Star Game, and what it still needs to fix going forward. And a little transcription creates a heap of trouble.
This week on the show that bombed out in the quarter-finals, sportswriter STEVE EWEN (PostMedia, The Province) stops by to wrap up the World Junior tournament that took over Vancouver to start the new year, and all that talk of junior talent leads to a discussion on the Vancouver Giants, and why you’re unlikely to see hockey ever return full-time to the Pacific Coliseum. PLUS: Lacrosse’s return to downtown! The rise of Vancouver’s basketball culture! And how the Canucks are failing Elias Pettersson.
This week on the show that needs something to blame after last year, John is away watching the Leafs home opener, so Stefan and Justin fly solo and go heavy on Canucks content right before the 2018/19 NHL season kicks off. And why not when they’ve given us so much to talk about: on banning Fortnite, Bo Horvat’s political machinations, the case for playing skill guys, and Stefan’s #IgnoreTheLottery campaign. PLUS: The Gritty backlash has arrived! Kawhi Leonard’s weird laugh! Predicting the NHL season! And what it would take for us to finally stop cheering for the Canucks.
This week on the show that’s just gonna bypass that question because improvement will lead to success, John returns to the show fresh off his successful stint at JFL performing as his beloved Southern Momma character and he's full of fire and rage as two of the most contentious debates in RGS history break out over... (checks notes) Troy Stecher and salad. PLUS: Trevor Linden leaves the Canucks! We debate the ceiling of Elias Pettersson! Jim Harbaugh thinks eating chicken gives you brain diseases! New holiday mascots! And Justin comes out swinging against The Office.
This week on the show that -- metaphorically speaking -- is on crack, the Real Good Boys are left alone to get back on their bullshit as they say goodbye to Luca Sbisa, hello to Elias Pettersson and Timothy Liljegren, and revisit the Luca Sbisa Would Do of the Week one last time. PLUS: Speaking of being back on your bullshit, Stephen A. Smith is wilding out on Phil Jackson! Roberto Osuna and the Blue Jays are commendably honest about mental health! And in honour of our two-year anniversary, we try to remember things we talked about way back on Episode 1.
