Sports radio in Canada is changing. Quickly.
Rogers Sportsnet and TSN have both added branded radio stations to their media conglomerates in Toronto. The landscape of Toronto sports radio has changed, and if you're a sports fans, then those changes are all for the good. More reliable, trusted content bridged across a variety of different forms of media.
So the question for Vancouver sports fans - when is Vancouver next on the docket?

This is getting to be re-goddamn-diculous!
Game Day Recon #59 - Canucks @ Predators
Salo. Edler. Hamhuis. Ballard. Rome. Alberts. Sweatt. And now... Bieksa. It has gone from a minor inconvenience to an inexplicable epidemic. If you are a defenseman for the Vancouver Canucks, you will get hurt this season.
And the Canucks are playing the Predators tonight with a D that's made up of 3 players from the Manitoba Moose with a combined set of 12 NHL games.

The defence corps of the Vancouver Canucks has started to resemble the participants of a death march over the past few weeks. Alex Edler’s injury triggered some sort of bizarre cascade effect, as in the three weeks since Lea Sweatt, Keith Ballard, Dan Hamhuis and finally Andrew Alberts have all fallen by the wayside. All it would take now to completely decimate the Vancouver blueline now would be injuries to Bieksa and Ehrhoff, along with a stiff breeze hitting Sami Salo.
While the injury list has been mostly bad news for Vancouver, it has had one positive affect: uncovering Chris Tanev as an NHL defenceman.

Game Day Recon #58 - Canucks @ Wild
The Canucks lost a special teams battle last night and it cost them the game. They didnt force enough turnovers and they let the Blues basically have the offensive zone. And Luongo giftwrapped a goal for Alex Steen with an absolutely bone-headed decision. All around it was a disappointing effort.
So how do they get back on track? They go to the Twin Cities to take on the Wild. Yikes.
