Yes, I didn’t make a post for Episode 17, but I was working on it, I swear. It wasn’t a true round table episode as is the norm with TCC, it was audio from our experience on Hockey Day in Canada. With the blessing of our co-hosts we posted the audio on The Crazy Canucks feed. Run time: 18:18
As promised, Rebecca and John were able to check out the Canucks game against the Leafs on the new scoreboard at GM Place this past weekend. The UBC Thunderbirds played a game against the Regina Cougars following the broadcast. Overall, a great way to spend a Hockey Day in Canada.
The audio quality is not the best, but hopefully the die hard fans out there will enjoy the sounds of what itâ€™s like to attend an event like this in Vancouver.
Now for Episode 18, which was recorded last night.
The plan was to have us all be online for this episode, but Dave got held up at work and couldnâ€™t make it in time. The rest of the crew gathered to go over the rest of the road trip out east. Two wins over Montreal and Ottawa, and a shootout loss to Buffalo that didnâ€™t seem as bad as what losing should be.
Record as of this episode: 27-19-2
Northwest Division: 2nd
Western Conference: 7th
Itâ€™s the All-Star break, so we take a little time to talk about the festivities and the new uniforms that have been unveiled by the league. They ainâ€™t so bad, but the change might result in more than just new threads. Also, we canâ€™t help ourselves from talking about the Bullis rumors of him wanting a trade out of Vancouver.

This does end up being a long episode, but there is something a little extra on the end of this one. J.J., Rebecca, and John met up to watch the game against Buffalo at a pub in downtown Vancouver and caught some audio of the crowd gathered there during the shootout. Hopefully you enjoy the atmosphere of watching the Canucks in the heart of Vancouver.
It runs about 64 minutes, which is pretty long for an Episode of TCC but there’s some special audio tagged on the end, as we often do in ‘secret track’ fashion.
