On this week's episode of The Unnamed Sports Show, your host Joshua Griffith is joined by Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Sun and Province and a member of the Professional Hockey Writers Association to chat about the start of the National Hockey League Season and the Vancouver Canucks. We go over covering hockey in a covid world and coming back to some kind of normal, What can Alex Chiasson bring to the Canucks, and was it the right fit? the overall shape of the defense and if Oliver-Ekman Larsson can be a difference on the blueline, the steps Hughes needs to take.
Then Joshua and Patrick take a look at the newest NHL franchise the Seattle Kraken and how they have built their team for the season. Look at a covid scare for Seattle and Colorado, and how the Canucks may have just missed the scare. #NHL #Canucks #SeaKraken #NHLFaceOff
To finish things off we go over some Canada Rugby and the National Men's side not qualifying for the 2023 France World cup, we also look at Rugby 7's at BC Place and look at the state of Rugby in Canada in general.
