As we just watched the Canadian athletes take the country by storm during the Rio Games, and are awaiting the World Cup of Hockey starting in a short while in Toronto, it's hard not to think about the highly controversial topic that is the NHL at the Olympic games. It has become a staple every four years since 1998, when NHL players were first allowed to compete in the games. Are we ready to go back to a world where the NHLers simply carry on during the games and pretend it's not happening? I took the question to our staff of writers. More after the jump!

It's the dead of the summer, which means it's the time of year that we explore topics that we typically don't get to in the rush of the season. The Oilers and Jets announced their Heritage Classic today (including a beautiful new/old Winnipeg uniform) and it made me think about rivalries and what they mean to a franchise. Who are the Canucks rivals? They have changed a lot over the years, with teams like Calgary staying as constants. In recent memory the Blackhawks and Bruins were big rivals as well. Where do they stand now? Our writers discuss.

Since their unveiling in August of 2007, the Canucks uniforms have been a controversial topic in the NHL. Some despise the arching "Vancouver" that covers the front of the jersey, while others love the fact they are embracing their city. Most agree, however, that after decades of identity crisis' they finally have themselves back in the right colour scheme. Now, unfortunately, those hoping the Canucks would change their uniforms in a couple years time when Adidas takes over as the NHL's uniform supplier, had a bucket of cold water dumped on them this week.

Trevor Linden co-hosted on TSN 1040 during President's Week and said there are no plans to change the uniforms at all. Is it the right move? Our writers discuss.

It's been a hot topic in the Canucks world for past few days, of what the Canucks should do with Chris Tanev. He's a stud defenceman, and that can get you a lot on the market.  However, it's also the type of player the Canucks have been looking for, for years. With that in mind, this week's roundtable focuses on this topic after the jump.

We are getting into the middle of Summer now, and hockey topics have surely taken a step back. The big ticket free agents are off the table, and most of the hockey stories are revolving around rookies (mostly Auston Matthews.)

That being said, there are still some free agents on the market, and perhaps the Canucks could find a diamond in the rough among the bunch. Perhaps they could fill out their bottom half a bit more with some smaller, one-year contracts. I polled our writers to see what they would do.
