After a one week hiatus the podcast is back with a vengeance to discuss all things Canucks which means we have plenty to chew on.

J.D. Burke and myself delve into a number of different topics which includes Canucks management once again pouring cold water on any trade possibilities with both Linden and Benning saying the team will not ask any veterans with No Trade Clauses to waive them and Linden went as far as to say the team is not going to make any significant trades, period. If you think that's curious, you're not alone and we discuss what this means and where it's coming from.

Your Vancouver Canucks are in Tampa this evening to take on a well rested Lightning team. It's the first of two meetings between the clubs this season and the odds aren't exactly in the Canucks favour. Former Canuck, Jason Garrison, should be back in the lineup to try and stick it to his old buddies but the Canucks have added a few players to offset the reunion.

The Lightning have a lot of talent at their disposal so the Canucks would be smart to play a clean game. Willie Desjardins may want to consider more ice time for Bo Horvat's line and heck, why not the Sedins too!
