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, it's the holiday season which means only one thing to the discerning hockey fan: it's time for the World Juniors! To break it all down, RGS World Juniors expert RYAN LAMBERT makes his fourth annual appearance on the program to talk up the tournament, the Flyers' firing Dave Hakstol, the rise of Carter Hart, and the way NHL teams waste the prime years of their young goalies. PLUS: We name our favourite movies of the year, and Justin goes on an unhinged rant against George Parros and the NHL's Department of Player Safety.
