Matt and Blake talk about the Pearson-DeSmith trade and everything it entails for the salary cap, backup goaltender, and young wingers Vasily Podkolzin and Nils Högalnder. We also hear from the Canucks' braintrust on the season ahead, what it will take to make the playoffs, whether Elias Pettersson can be re-signed in-season, status of a new practice facility and training camp in Victoria. Plus a Welcome Matt on Ray Ferraro joining the Canucks broadcast team. Frank Corrado joins to tell us about a Tocchet training camp from his experience in Pittsburgh, and about his ex-teammate Casey DeSmith.
