Adam Rickert and Brian Bobal are back and will begin their weekly division-by-division previews by tackling the rough Pacific Division. The two will go through a preview of what to expect from each of the seven teams on or near the West Coast and finish the show with their own personal predictions. Will the Anaheim Ducks win their third straight division title? Will the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings win the Pacific for the first time? Will the San Jose Sharks finally rise up? Or will a dark horse team surprise everyone? Tune in to Top Shelf Hockey at 8:30 ET/5:30 PT on Monday night to find out!
We just keep on a-rollin' through our summer Pacific division preview series, and this week's takes us to Vancouver. The Canucks have freed themselves of John Tortorella, and The Trevor Linden Era is offically underway. Will the Canucks improve on a disappointing 83-point campaign that saw them miss the playoffs for the first time since 2007-08? Their 52.2% Fenwick Close last year was actually up from their 51.9% in 2012-13, indicating a team that perhaps deserved a better fate. But now the Canucks move forward without Ryan Kesler, who was traded to Anaheim for a disappointing return. Are the Canucks still a playoff team? We'll be joined by Dimitri Filipovic (@DimFilipovic) of the Sporting News and Canucks Army to discuss the Canucks' strange year and where he expects them to be moving forward.
Join The Cardiac Corner and host Lee Clark today at 6:30pm est. Joining us today will be Canucks Super fan Andrew Sutton. TodayAndrew will be joining us to discuss the Vancouver Canucks. We will discuss some of the players they drafted and if he thinks they will make an impact with the team this year. We will aslo discuss some of the offseason trades they have made and decide if Vancouver can make it back to the playoffs. Join us in the chatroom which opens up 10-15 minutes before the show starts or feel free to call into the show if you would like. Hope to see you today.
