More
This week in anguish: - We learn that teams who will pick the 217 "best players available" at the draft show up with a ranked list of the best...100 or so? Wait, what!? - Another round of will they or won't they (and will they even be able to) with Wahlstrom, Hughes, and friends. - We grapple with the fact that it takes Barb Underhill to dismantle and rebuild a player's skating to improve it, but we still expect players to improve their shots by firing buckets of pucks against the...

Our beloved Swedish Canadian hockey team is getting more American every year.

4/15/2018
More

3/24/2018
More
This week in anguish: - Travis Green completes the semi-intentional brutal honesty trifecta of the 2017-2018 season. - The Canucks let in a lot of goals in the first minutes of games.

He is incorrect. - It has come to this: watching Jake Virtanen house tours to avoid thinking about what's happening on the ice. Thanks for listening! If you liked the show, tell a...

More
This week in anguish: - We moan about another trade deadline that was, and groan mournfully over the trade deadline that could have been. - Ardella threatens to commit Canucks-related suicide twice in the span of 45 minutes, and ends the episode in a giggling fit.
