I’m sorry.... 🙁.... I can’t listen to this anymore....

By Idahocanuck - Nov 29 2019
Read more
Living in the hockey desert of Idaho, I have been a Canucks fan ever since I discovered Hockey. This has been my favorite podcast and I couldn't wait for each episode.... now, with the changing of hosts & format... I just can’t listen to the constant monotone negativity and down playing of our great young players and team. It is down right depressing and these guys only complain constantly about any little nit-picky mistake or error. It makes me wonder if they are even fans of the team or just there for the job. I’m out!
