Marek & Friedman: Canucks Front Office Starting to Take Shape
January 25 2022
Elliotte joins Jeff to chat about Tuukka Rask's struggles, and Bruins fans chanting for Jeremy Swayman (0:26). Next, they discuss the hiring of Émilie Castonguay as Canucks AGM, Elliotte's chat with Angela Gorgone Swartz who was the first woman to serve as an AGM in the NHL, the GM spot being empty still in Vancouver, and who ultimately will have final say in decisions in the Canucks organization (3:49). Then the guys discuss the Canadian men's Olympic hockey roster, Josh Ho-Sang's inclusion and why the Leafs refrained from calling him up to the NHL, and whether these games could be a springboard for Eric Staal to get back into the NHL (13:51). To finish, they touch on what to expect from Chuck Fletcher as the Flyers GM gets set to address the media Wednesday amidst the team's 12-game losing streak, Justin Faulk's comments about Canada, and Erik Karlsson's forearm surgery (16:50).The views and opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the hosts and guests and do not necessarily reflect the position of Rogers Sports & Media or any affiliate.
