Ed Jovanovski remembers his stint with Canucks: 'We should have won a couple'
December 14 2017
The no. 1 draft pick in 1994, d-man Ed Jovanovski looks back and agrees with Brendan Morrison that the Canucks underachieved through the late '90s and 2000s. "We should have won a couple there." At least the media helped "pump his tires" and earn him a couple extra million. He talks about today's youth, including Brock Boeser and his rifle shot. "The future is bright."

Travis Lulay on Lions adding Jarious Jackson: 'He's a good hire for our club'
December 14 2017
B.C. Lion Travis Lulay remembers drawing up plays and watching video with Jarious Jackson and now the two QBs are back together since the football club hired Jackson as their new quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. He doesn't know if there's room for Johnny Manziel in the CFL but leans towards the negative. He looks ahead to Week 15 in the NFL and talks MVP contenders. "There is still enough football left to sway voters."

Bik Nizzar: How to manage your fantasy football team in the playoffs
December 14 2017
Sportsnet 650's fantasy guru Bik Nizzar joins On Point to talk with the hosts and take calls about team management heading into the playoffs and how to boost the depth chart in an effort to make up for injuries. Sometimes the player you need is a Cleveland Brown or a QB who just threw three picks. Can you enhance your team at this stage of the game? His answer is yes, it's possible but there have not been an excess of dynamite pickups this season.

Trading Karlsson? 'You will end up regretting it the moment you do it'
December 13 2017
Louis Jean with TVA Sports joins Perry Solkowksi and Randip Janda and reveals how much Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien speaks with New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. He says the Habs players and coaches need to rethink their sense of entitlement. And in Ottawa, the Senators would make a "ludicrous" and "ridiculous" decision to trade Erik Karlsson.

Canucks injuries mean an opportunity for others to step up
December 13 2017
Shane O'Brien calls in from Austria to talk with The Boys on Sportsnet 650 about potting points for the Linz Black Wings and winning four in a row. On Canucks injuries, he says the NHL is a very unforgiving league and no team is immune. "They've got to find a way to come together," he says, adding the coach's message is no doubt that it's time for others to step up. "It's opportunity." Complaining to the media about ice time, however, risks separating the room and making a player seem selfish.

Pete Carroll wants the Seahawks to play with emotional intensity -- and they do
December 12 2017
Danny O’Neil with 710 ESPN Seattle talks about the Seahawks post-game altercation with fans and other controversial behaviour. "People are tired of it," he says. But Pete Carroll wants an emotionally charged team, and he's got it. He may not have ordered the "code red," but nor is he disciplining it. Players rarely go into the stands and, if they did, it could be a "terrible, terrible" thing that could escalate quickly.

Brendan Batchelor: Canucks must find depth, consistency to avoid 'dark' December
December 12 2017
The Canucks play-by-play commentator Brendan Batchelor joins Perry Solkowski and Randip Janda on SN650 to weigh in on the Canucks' struggles with injures, lineups and match-ups, plus what it could mean for their overall record. One reality is that they need "tremendous goaltending" if they expect to survive this stretch. Brandon Sutter is expected back soon but is not yet practising with the team.

Patrik Laine can only be described as 'struggling' because expectations are sky-high
December 11 2017
Sportsnet's Sean Reynolds marvels at the achievements of 19-year-old Patrik Laine and how it's remarkable and maybe a little wrong to describe a player with 26 points as "struggling," especially with his pin-point accuracy and ability to find room on the ice in this fast, modern NHL. Also, no one puts in more than Blake Wheeler.

Travis Green report: Canucks will be 'leaning on different guys in different areas'
December 11 2017
The Vancouver Canucks head coach talks with Brendan Batchelor in an exclusive rinkside interview before facing the Winnipeg Jets. They will miss Sven Baertschi but the adjustments aren't unique to today. "It's unfortunate that he's out," he says. "We're always working on our system play, tweaking it from game to game." The Sedins will see more minutes and draws. Many players will get more opportunities, including on special teams.

Hundal on Canucks: Essential to ride out injuries and remain patient
December 11 2017
Bhupinder Hundal with HNIC Punjabi joins Perry Solkowski and co-host to them both Randip Janda to talk about bringing Rogers Hometown Hockey to Surrey and the success skater Jujhar Khaira. He's philosophical about the injury-depleted Canucks because it allows the Vancouver to see how strong it is based on the weakest links. This should solidify a commitment to the long-term goal to rebuild. They talk Erik Karlsson as well as fan frustration with the Ottawa Senators.

Kei Kamara on raising competition within Whitecaps FC: 'You've got to push everyone'

The latest addition to the Vancouver Whitecaps calls in from Sierra Leone to talk about his new squad and firing up Vancouver spectators. "I love passionate fans," he says. "I love the connection to fans. That's what my whole career has been about." He's looking forward to playing for Carl Robinson. "He's a fighter and he wants to win," just like the player who intends to take on a leadership role. He also talks about his charity, Heart Shaped Hands, which has a meaningful, local connection.

Canadian Olympian promotes KidSport: 'Sport skills are life skills'
December 08 2017
Olympic gold medallist Jon Montgomery talks about performance enhancing drugs at the Olympic Games and says what we've known about Russia and the U.S.S.R before it, is that systematic doping was prevalent. "This is next-level cheating," he says, that is worthy of a spy novel or conspiracy theory. He supports the IOC's strong stance. The KidSport ambassador also says many families can't afford to put their children in recreational sports, but what we learn on the playing field is essential to life.

It's been a "trying couple weeks" for his club. The young roster is looking for consistency and they're close despite going 11 games with only one win. Around the NHL, there are a lot of B.C. connections. "You always played with somebody back in the day."

He found that in Travis Green. "Just because you're picked high doesn't mean you're going to have a long career," he says, emphasizing the importance of confidence. "You're only as good as the coach will allow you to be."
