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.
Sometimes if it's not broke, it's best not to try to fix it. This is not an opinion shared by men of power in the sports world. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo aren't broken and don't need any fixing.
One word can ignite so much hate. One word can create so much controversy. One word has so much meaning. That one word is on the verge of being banned by the NFL. A player saying the "n-word" on the field could become a 15 yard penalty. Is it possible to fairly and accurately police this? Even though this is a term that represents so much negativity, should a sports league go down the slippery slope of outlawing speech? As usual, Mike undoubtedly has some unpopular thoughts on another very hot button issue.
With the Olympics now in the books, the NHL is in the midst of its second half sprint for the playoffs. David Malinowski, of SB Nation, the Hockey Guys, and Michigan Daily, joined the Buzz-saw to discuss trade rumors and the impact certain of possible trades. Has adding Ryan Miller made the Blues more of a cup favorite? Will Ryan Kesler be dealt? Which franchises need to make a move? And which franchises should stand pat?
It's not just the NFL trying to impliment a controversial new rule into their game. Major League Baseall is looking to minimize contact at home plate. Do active catchers even support a rule designed to protect them? Will this actually increase the work load of umpires?
Raymond Felton has taken the New York Knicks from just an awful team with some drama, to now a full fledged soap opera. Should a player be allowed to play while facing serious gun charges? Carmelo Anthony, please take a seat, have some pineapples, and listen to the Buzz-saw.
There's nothing to fix here, as the Howitzer & Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
Betrayal and intrigue are the flavors of the moment as unstoppable forces collide in this week's episode of Top Shelf Hockey!! Adam "Razor" Rickert and Rob "The Bowling Alley Lane Attendant" Kirk co-host a provocative glimpse into the wild, unpredictable and often inglorious world of the NHL. They'll discuss hot button topics like pirates, traffic cones and the unpredictable, but deadly and ever-present POLAR VORTEX!!! Actually the guys will talk a lot about hockey, specifically the mid-point of the season, line brawls, John Tortorella, head shots and Matt Cooke, a look ahead to the trade deadline and Olympic hockey. If you want them to talk about all that other crap, you'll have to call in to the show.
WELCOME TO SPECULATION SPORTS...SUPER BOWL 48...JONN TORTORELLA..RICHARD SHERMAN..THUG..I DOUBT..PUNK YES..NHL TALK..PUMPKIN BALL..HALFWAY POINT..CURRENT EVENTS..NO FANTASY FOOTBALL..HOW ARE MY CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS DOING..NHL TALK..SUPER 48 TALK..HELL YES..SPORTS TALK..WHO WILL BE THE IMBECILE OF THE SHOW..LIVE ON THE SHOE SPORTS FANS
Every now and then, we are reminded why society sucks. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo are always here to put the buffoons in their place. Maybe the first step could be handing out dictionaries, since many people don't seem to understand the definitions of words.
We have our Super Bowl 48 matchup. The number ranked offense, the Denver Broncos, will battle the number one ranked defense, the Seattle Seahawks. But that's not what's been the focus. Richard Sherman has been the center of attention for his pro wrestling style promo, after his big play over Michael Crabtree (#Mediocre) won Seattle the NFC crown. Is this moment of arrogance enough to stain a guy, who has actually achieved much success overcoming extreme obstacles? How much is race a factor in labeling a highly intelligent cocky athlete a "thug" for one action. You may not want to hear about race, but Mike calls a spade a spade.
Keeping previewing the game to next week, your favorite sports genius' also discuss if Peyton Manning needs a second ring for his legacy and if Mike and George argue if Russell Wilson criticism is fair.
The week asinine didn't end with the Sherman controversy. Vancouver Canuck head coach, John Tortorella, went absolutely bat shit crazy in a game against Calgary. Was Torts justified for goung all #Tortszilla on his opponent? Did the Flames management get off easy and being wrongly victimized?
All the wall to wall asininity concludes with the MLBPA trying to kick Alex Rodriguez out of the union. Um while this is impossible, the Buzz-saw goes off about why A-Rod has actually been screwed over by an organizaton designed to defend him.
Villains aren't always who you think they are.
It's a villian appreciating Howitzer and Buzz-saw, as they conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....

We are into December, and that means the sprint to the end of the NFL regular season is on. The Patriots are on their yearly march to the AFC East title, but how will the Eagles fare in their fight with Dallas in the NFC East? The Giants and Jets are on the outside looking in, but do they re-enter the race for the playoffs? We'll talk about the Week 13 games and look ahead to Week 14, as well as go around the league.
In hockey, it was a topsy-turvy weekend for the Rangers. The Rangers turned a one-goal lead to a one-goal loss in a stirring third period in Boston on Friday. But, they ruined John Tortorella's homecoming as the Rangers defeated Vancouver. The Flyers are back to NHL .500 and the Islanders winless streak continues. We talk about the local teams and go around the league.
