February 02 2018
Iain MacIntyre joins Alex Auld and Satiar Shah to talk about the Canucks and state of affairs with Henrik and Daniel Sedin. There is "clarity but no conclusion to it yet."

Sportsnet's Iain MacIntyre believes the Sedins will return and will take on similar role as this year, which is to act as tremendous leaders and set the platinum example.

Why the NHL should support a women's hockey league
January 18 2018
Cassie Campbell-Pascall joins Satiar Shah and Alex Auld to talk about Bo Horvat's return, his presence in the room and how the Canucks have managed to maintain a positive energy despite bad breaks and bad goals. "It says a lot about the character of the group." The Olympian compares playing versus covering the Winter Games. "You always wish you were 25 forever," she says, but watching the latest generation is exhilarating. The challenge of the Olympics is bringing passionate attention to women's sport every year, not just once in four. If the league takes it on, the NHL wants to do it right -- the first time.
