We livestreamed, you showed up, we had fun. Brought to you by the Dean Blundell Network and partnering with Summerskates, we had a blast.

Connor McDavid is closing in on 100 points and the Canucks are moving the farm team to Abbotsford.  We talked with Brenton from BrentonOnTour Podcast and Journey for Java about his former gig as Event Manager at the Abbotsford Event Centre.  It's worth a listen.

As always brought to you by the Dean Blundell Network.  The Canucks had a week and then some. Jake scored two goals, Benning ruined our lives, and I talked about Milk cartons (what?). We dove into the toxic situation the Canucks are in and if there is even a way out.  Joey dropped by from The Larschcast and gave us some great old Canucks references we won't soon forget. Dudes and Guys by Players Choice was to the point this week and no one really yelled. Joey was cut off by Ryan because he tried to break the rules.

What a week! The Canucks crapped the bed but we didn't.

He knows hockey, probably better than most people you know. We got into his love of the team, distaste for the reverse retro jerseys and his promise to help turn the Canucks around. The MicroLab headphones were given away so listen in to find the winner and we also set up things to give away another pair of SummerSkates slides.

The Canucks were a pretty popular team this week for all the wrong reasons.

As the Canucks/Coyotes trade winds swirl, we tagged Cat Silverman to join us and talk not only the OEL to Van concept but the state of the Coyotes in general and why everyone should just chill their jets.

Sarah also discusses the importance of being a organ donor. Dave received a kidney from his mother 16 years ago and what a way to make a difference.  There's also a bit of a cool story about Dave's Upper Deck card and how Sarah could get her Patrick Roy rookie card back.

This might be our most polarizing episode yet but it needed to happen. Harrison Mooney hopped on the PP1 Podcast to chat with Ted and Ryan about a topic that has been avoided for far too long: Racism. When the NBA players walked away from the game this week, the NHL took another day before they did the same in support of the fight against racism towards the Black community. The NHL is usually late to the party on social issues so it's not a big surprise, but at the same time, they made a solid effort.  There wasn't a lot of hockey talk in this one but this is so much bigger than sports.  Get the conversation going.

Episode 52 - Unicorn Mood Boards, Moana, and Louis Domingue feat. Vanessa Jang
We swear, there was hockey talk at some point. This week Vanessa Jang of The BroadsCast joined the crew to talk about their emergence into the media world, how the name came to be, and why Prince of Egypt has THE best inspirational Disney* song ever! As it is a Canucks based podcast, we chat about the Blues series, the first game against Vegas and what the Canucks need to do to hang around in the playoffs. The expansion draft is discussed as well with Troy Stecher playing a major role in who should be protected. Dudes and Guys come back again this week, brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards, and we all pick the best and the worst from the past week. Ryan has a bit of a hissy fit at the end of the show but he's still polite. Take a listen because this one is gonna blow up! @ThePP1Podcast, @bkursel23, @tee3ree, @always90four, @vanessajang

Episode 51 - Bure From The Future feat. Satiar Shah
Satiar Shah dropped by the PP1 Podcast this week and dropped some serious insight on the boys. From the coolest vending machines at Sportsnet 650 to his support of CanCon superstar Nickelback; we covered it all. When we got to chatting Canucks, Sat chatted about what Tyler Myers really means to the Canucks and why the other five defensemen will struggled to fill his shoes. The power play is discussed in detail as well (shocker!). Dudes and Guys is back which is always presented by Players Choice Sportscards. So good to be back but we prefer the post game pods, a little more excitement! @always90four, @tee3ree, @bkursel23

Episode 50 - THE BIG ONE feat. Cat Silverman, Rich Abney, and Rick Dhaliwal
We made it to 50! The editing was tedious but here we are. All three of our guests were a ton of fun.  The PP1 Podcast is now a part of the Dean Blundell Network so expect big things to come from this. First up, Ted and Ryan chat with Cat Silverman from The Athletic, Canucks Army, Elite Prospects... ok ok, enough. We get into all things goaltenders, Ted's eagerness to learn about Reverse VH (not the teriyaki sauce), and how a cool evening in Phoenix equates to 39 degrees celsius. YIKES! Rich joins us in the two spot. We get into sports returning, how hockey has gone thus far, our man crushes and woman crushes, a story from the  Canucks Training Camp in PG about a sweaty jock strap and then some heavy debate about the upcoming NHL Draft. Finally, Brady and Ryan chat with the legend himself, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 fame. We discuss Adam Gaudette, Tyler Myers, the logjam on defense between Olli Juolevi, Jordie Benn, and Oscar Fantenberg, and Rick's favourite playoff memory. Thanks for hanging around, we have more to bring in the next 50!

Episode 49 - Secret AdMyers
Brady and Ryan tackled this week's episode with Ted. Even though they released a postgame the night before there was plenty to chat about.  We dove into the Micheal Ferland situation and really what that ultimately means for his career, there was chatter about Jake Virtanen and Zack MacEwen in this series and SOMEHOW, we forgot to talk about Quinn Hughes the other night. We talk about Quinn Hughes. Dudes and Guys (brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards) was fun and Ryan drops his guy of the week "but not for reasons you'd think". We get into Tyler Myers and his impact and both Brady and Ryan get distracted by the Oilers/Blackhawks game on the TV. It was a real winner of a show. Like, Subscribe, review, promote our show.

Episode 48 - Sledge Hockey, Stitches, and Someone Said Hockey's Back?
Can you believe we got to chat about an actual hockey game this week? Apparently, hockey is a thing again? Ted and Ryan hold down the fort this week while Brady recovers from an epic day in the sun minus water intake (hydrate Brady, c'mon!). The Canucks played the Jets in an exhibition game and there was much to discuss. Juolevi, Virtanen, Ferland, and the issues with each player.  We discuss how awards are given out and why Jacob Markstrom ISN'T a Vezina caliber goalie yet, not even close. The same goes for Petey and the MVP discussion. These things take time. Our Dudes and Guys segment, brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards, is back with actual players to grade, what a change! Ted gets into the discussion on why Tyler Toffoli is just a high-end rental and why people need to make peace with that. Ryan agrees and puts his take on it. It involves Brock Boeser. Check out the Players Choice YouTube page and give it a follow. You might just win yourself a Jack Hughes signed rookie from Upper Deck Stature.

Episode 47 - An Evening of Fun with Sean Warren of Area 51 Podcast
It was a very interesting week for PP1. Ted's streak was broken for most consecutive weeks on the show, we had some problems with audio, and we had multiple guests somehow. Jason from Player's Choice stopped by midway and Ryan got to open some cards and unearthed a contest everyone will want to enter.  Brady, Ryan, and Sean discusses a myriad of topics including Jake Virtanen's final opportunity on the Canucks, the rise of Zack MacEwen, Brock Boeser's snipe and making the salary cap work.  Dudes and Guys has a few pests this week: Matt Cooke and Raffi Torres.

Hockey is back... for now. Training camps have begun yet again and with the return of hockey in Vancouver comes the return of headlines that hang around and gather discussion. This week Matt Sekeres joined us fresh off of his juicy tidbit about Brock Boeser's future as a Canuck. He agreed the timing was impressive (we're a very timely podcast). We get into that,  Jack Rathbone signing his deal with the Canucks, and who Matt sides with in the battle of worst #shotgunjake attempt. Matt joins the fellas for Dudes and Guys brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles. This week it's one and dones: Thomas Vanek and Mats Sundin. Where will it go? Who wins?

Ryan's amazing research unearths Rich's feats which involve being in the Hockey Hall of Fame's 3D film "Stanley's Game Seven", you need to see it. We also chatted about nicknames, Ryan's celebrity encounter with The Game, and the kicker viral video that has millions of views online.  For the football fans, we discuss Tom Brady going to the Bucs and Cam Newton heading to Rich's Patriots.  Dudes and Guys had a twist this week. Always brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles. This week the battle is between: Pat Quinn and Alain Vigneault. Tough one. Rich also drops a great Upper Deck story about a local goalie up north and is just one more reason you need to support UD and their products. After the warm fuzzy, the guys chat about the NHL coming back next week, the new CBA and if this is still gonna happen.

Episode 44 - Doughnut Wars, Play Ins, and Lunch With Faber
Canada Day is Wednesday so the boys got in the virtual studio and hammered out the latest episode of PP1. Right off the hop the hot takes were laid down. What is the best local ice cream flavour and what doughnut reigns supreme? Ted was clearly wrong but Ryan gave him a chance. Brady discusses the play in round, the number one pick via the mystery team in the lottery and Ryan brings up what he'd do with the top pick. Players Choice presents Dudes and Guys and Ted doesn't disappoint pitting Henrik Sedin against Pavel Bure.  The tenacious trio also gets into a bit of Loui Eriksson talk and who the NHL's purest goal scorer of all time is.

Thanks for checking out this week's PP1 Podcast with special guest Anna Forsyth from C4 Podcast, it's a big deal. We get into Hub Cities, What we'd have in our Hub City, Cricket talk, and more. The Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles Dudes and Guys was a douzy but we pitted Erik Gudbranson against Luca Sbisa and it went all kinds of weird.

EMERGENCY PODCAST!!! PP1 Podcast Proudly Presents: Paul Bissonnette
Friday started like any other day and at 10:00 am we got a DM and the boys assembled to welcome Paul "Biznasty" Bissonnette! Many of you have heard him on Spittin Chiclets or seen him trying to hone his craft as a member of the Vancouver Warriors lacrosse team, or hey, he had an NHL career that helped launch Biz into the media spotlight. But for one hour, he chatted with the PP1 Podcast. We covered the current state of affairs in the world and what that means for hockey's return, his playing days with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, watching the Sedins final home game and hanging out with Shane Doan. What many people don't know is how charitable Paul is with his time and efforts for various causes and he even made time for little shows like ours. It was an absolute pleasure to chat with Biz and we hope you enjoy the conversation. Unfortunately, we ran into a few technical problems (of course) but at the end of it all, it was a fun time. Follow our show on Itunes, Spotify, and Stitcher. And hey, we'll plug his show too, sounds like that Chiclets show might be big one day. Check out Spittin Chiclets.

Episode 41 - Torts, Toronto, and Terrible Shrek Takes feat. Kierra aka Keeks_2020
This week, we adopted a new format, more of a roundtable of sorts. We were all at tables and possibly one of them was round. Keeks_2020 joined us for her first-ever podcasting experience and she was great. Right from the get-go, you'll hear her star in the viral Torts monologue from CBJ. We dive into Markstrom and Pettersson being shafted in the ranks of top goalies and centers in the NHL going into the playoffs. We debate who would win the Cup if it came down to it this season: Toronto or Vancouver? Dudes and Guys continues and is always brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles. This week we debate - Bieksa or Jovanovski? Stay tuned to the end because Keeks and Brady discuss the next viral Twitter video they will most definitely be a part of.  Follow everyone INCLUDING the podcast (CMON PEOPLE) @ThePP1Podcast, @always90four, @bkursel23, @tee3ree, @keeks_2020

Just the boys this week. No guests. Ted and Brady brought some bad words this week, Ryan kept it clean. He is a winner this week. The guys are back and right off the hop we break down the perfect burger. The NHL Classics have been on the tube lately and there were some eery parallels of Patrick Roy and Roberto Luongo's departures from Montreal and Vancouver, respectively. The debate was reopened on which goal was better: Burrows Dragon Slayer or Bure 2OT. Dudes and Guys this week pits two of the GOATS in Canucks history against each other. As always Dudes and Guys is brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles. Thanks to Players Choice for our spot in their SP Authentic case break.

Disclaimer: We fought some wifi issues this week and someone (Ryan) may have forgotten to hit a certain red button to start this. It still went off with a bang! and we couldn't be more thankful to our special guest, Rob Fai of the Vancouver Canadians and TSN 1040. We asked Rob about the current state of affairs in the major sports leagues, his ties to Vancouver Canadians baseball, classic sports video games before they added more buttons and somehow we got into the Mount Rushmore of Wrestling Promos. Yeah, it was wild. The guys also chat on the Players Tribune article by Akim Aliu, the potential 24 team NHL playoff structure and if having an asterisk is ok if you win the Cup this season. Dudes and Guys takes on Brock Boeser's rookie campaign. As always brought to you by Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles. Check us out on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram as well.

PP1 Podcast Presents: An Evening with Brad May
Brace yourselves, this one goes about 90 minutes. The one thing the pandemic has afforded us all is time and these last few weeks have proven that. This week, former NHLer Brad May chats with us to discuss various parts of his career.  Nothing was off-limits including how May prepped for our chat. Ryan, Ted, and Brady were loaded with some great questions and Brad didn't let up. We touch on a few of his classic fights, how he has fought players that ended up becoming his teammates, the feeling of winning the Stanley Cup, his draft day photo (what a beauty!), and some more controversial stuff. May Day is 100% candid in our chat and even touches on a subject that was discussed earlier this year regarding the "the incident" and his feelings now that it's over. He even gets into the next phase of his life in a business you probably wouldn't expect.

Episode 34 - Vern Fiddler Joins Us For A Chat
Sure, it's not the most exciting episode title but it's to the point. Vern Fiddler, he of 877 NHL games, is our special guest for the better part of an hour this week. We dive into his time in the AHL and winning a Calder Cup, his new job coaching with the Kelowna Rockets, adjusting to bus trips instead of charter flights, the intensity of playoff hockey, his involvement in various charities and I think we're missing something... Oh right, "Bieksa Face!" Vern doesn't really do the podcast guest thing but he made a special exception for us (Thanks to Brady) and he didn't disappoint. He's a fascinating guy and he has a lot going on. You'll want to hear the whole interview because he has a great story about how he was traded to Nashville. Make sure to check our sponsor for our returning segment "Dudes and Guys" which is sponsored by Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles. We adjusted our Jake Virtanen signed photo contest so you'll need to listen if you want a shot at it. The winner will be announced next week!

Episode 33 - Who Knows Henrik? feat. Special guest: WHL Referee Steve Papp
What a phenomenal episode! Brady pitted Ted and Ryan against each other in a battle of wits to decide who knew more about Henrik Sedin. It didn't disappoint. The guys get into some Hoglander talk, why riding ATV's and wearing hockey masks around town hasn't caught on yet and some more MJ talk. The featured guest this week is Steve Papp. He has refereed some of the top players now in the NHL and has some great stories in his time as an official. We dive into the men on the ice who rarely are celebrated and get a unique angle on the game of hockey. Steve had some great stories to tell and you would be silly to miss out.  Players Choice has been a great sponsor and through their case break last week we were able to land a Quinn Hughes rookie which we announce the winner and announce another contest.  Stay tuned!!!

Episode 32 - Breaking Boxes with Players Choice Sportscards
We tried to be everything to everyone this week and despite our best efforts, we might have bitten off more than we could chew. Players Choice Sportscards and Collectibles (our dudes and guys sponsor) hooked us up with a box of O Pee Chee Platinum hockey cards which we live-streamed on Facebook. It was fun, to say the least. Also, check out the Players Choice website too! They sell all their goods there as well. The platform wasn't allowing us to connect each other so yes, there were some hiccups but overall, there was a lot of great content. Ted and Ryan had some crazy good cards pulled while Brady... not so much. Jason Wobshall let us pick his brain about the card game and dropped some insane truth bombs about the prices of a few cards floating out there right now. (You might wanna sell your house to afford one). Listen right to the end this week because there are some tidbits you'll want to hear. Maybe a giveaway to talk about as well.

It sucks to say but we've had better conversations lately without hockey than we've had debating who should start in net or who deserves to be on the top line. Welcome to another episode of The PP1 Podcast. Everyone is back for an hour of awesome and boy was it ever! Nobody is playing hockey but we were able to get into Brock Boeser's worth in the now and the future. We discuss Vasili Podkolzin's future and the Canucks Top 10 plays of the season. Ryan gets into how he's lonely playing his PS3 while the rest of the world enjoys their COD, their CHEL, and whatever other games they have. Ted drops a pretty cool story about his time in Chicago and Brady... is still at home. Next week: Jason from Players Choice Sports Cards and Collectibles joins us and we're doing a box break of O Pee Chee Platinum.

We made you wait over a week for an episode so we caught you up with a bonus one this week! The guys committed to 30 minutes of engaging commentary and next thing you know, they wrap it up at the hour mark. Go figure. There was actually a lot to talk about from the Goldobin Wars ending to WWF finishers (or is it WWE?), the bizarre way the Canucks went to the 2011 Stanley Cup Final and a scenario where the 2010 and 2002 Canadian Olympic Men's teams LOSE to the USA in hockey. No Dudes and Guys this week but when it's here, it's brought to you by Players Choice Sports Cards and Collectibles. An Upper Deck Diamond Dealer and Hobby Retailer of the Year.

Episode 29 - We Interrupt Your Scheduled Programming
Where to begin? The isolation has kept the guys from meeting in person but they couldn't be held down. Ted, Ryan, and Brady are back for a bender of an episode, number 29. Somehow, there's still Canucks stuff to discuss and debate. This show can be summed up in two parts: Team Construction via Vanessa Jang's Canuck twitter post and... The Debate.  Plain and simple and you have to listen to this. Ted and Brady go toe-to-toe arguing whether the 2011 Cup run team was built around Roberto Luongo or the Sedins. It was good listening. Ryan didn't even get much of a word in and that's saying something. We managed to fit Dudes and Guys in which is now brought to you by Players Choice Sports Cards and Collectibles.  There's a big announcement regarding that partnership towards the end of the show. @ThePP1Podcast, @tee3ree, @bkursel23, @always90four Remember to follow everyone on the podcast, like it, subscribe and review!

We're still doing the social distancing thing and churning out yet another barn-burning episode of The PP1 Podcast! You might be wondering why we've been getting epic guests lately but when JPat wants to talk, you oblige. This week Jeff Paterson of the VanCast and TSN 1040 drops by to chat Canucks, utter boredom, vacuuming, and a hearty nod to Jason Botchford with Jeff's involvement in The Botchford Project and what it's been like this past season without Botch. We didn't get into Dudes and Guys this week so if you're craving our picks, you'll have to wait until next week, sorry.  The guys chat about the best hockey movie, what we've all been up to and Jeff pretty much gifts us a jam-packed interview.

DISCLAIMER: It's been a busy week and this was our first podcast recorded remotely. We are working on some audio things so you might wanna turn up the speakers a bit.  This was the first week the PP1 Podcast recorded remotely. This whole COVID-19 has thrown the world for a loop and we remain dedicated to putting out something we hope you'll like. This week, we had Ryan Schaap from Pucks on Net fame and the Hamilton Huskies Minor Midget AAA team.  Brayden wasn't able to join us as he is still under the weather but Ryan was a great Black Ace.  Even with hockey gone, we hammered out a solid 60 minutes for you this week. We get into the current state of hockey/Canucks, what the revised cap situation may mean for Vancouver, we get a little sour over the CBJ collapse (just kidding) as well.

Episode 26: Big Macs, Drop Passes and Canucks Conspiracy Theories feat. @StephanRoget
Oh episode 26 had it all! Brady was down with the sickness (ooh, ah, ah, ah, ah) so Ryan and Ted brought the heat in his absence.  The boys chatted about the Canucks recent struggles as the season is getting closer to the playoffs, they discuss Troy Stecher's worth, Jake Virtanen's puck luck, the Pettersson breakaway, and Zack MacEwen's arrival. Dudes and Guys are back, sponsored by Players Choice Sports Cards and Collectibles. Then, the guys get into it with special guest: Stephan Roget of Canucks Army and Ranker. He has some great takes and we might have caught him off-guard a bit but he handled it like a champ. Refresh those feeds! @ThePP1Podcast, @Bkursel23, @tee3ree, @alway90four

Episode 24 - Canucks and Lost in the deep Meniscus
The trade deadline has passed, the Canucks are winning games and everyone is talking about a meniscus. This week, the guys debate Thatcher Demko's immediate impact/future with the Canucks and what it could mean down the stretch. We also get into the greatest that is Tyler Toffoli, there is some minor Quinn Hughes chatter, some talk on what the Canucks might be doing to themselves allowing all the shots against, DUDES and GUYS returns with a theme song, Ryan talks about the Guy bump that continues to be successful for the Canucks and finally... Ted and Brady ramble on about some LOST show on Amazon, sounds dumb. Check us out, you won't regret it. @Bkursel23, @tee3ree, @alway90four, @ThePP1Podcast

Episode 23 - A Plea To Let Wayne Simmonds Play Somewhere Else feat. Sean Warren
This was a big one this week! Lots of trade deadline talk, a handful of hypotheticals, the rant Ryan promised to deliver, Dudes and Guys of the week and then somehow, some way, we include Sean Warren, host of Area 51 Hockey Podcast for a little chat as well. This episode has it all and it's safe to say this could be our best episode to date! Check out @Area51HockeyPod and @SeanyeWest234 OH, and we announce a bit of a partnership with @PCSportscards that we think you'll want to hear. You know the drill.

Episode 22 - Is Markstrom good? It's HART to tell
The PP1 Podcast is back for another week of amazingness! There actually was a lot to talk about this week. We touch on the Sedin Retirement ceremony, Jacob Markstrom's stellar play which is creating discussion about some trophies, Kevin Bieksa's roast of the Twins, the trade deadline and Ryan's predictable trade (it may involve a Kelowna Rocket).  We cover Dudes and Guys as we do and we keep it to ONE EACH. Somehow the PP has been revived and also we continue to talk about Markstrom. We also touch on Virtanen vs. Gaudette: who do you keep at the expansion draft if you had to pick? Ryan makes a case for Ronalds Kenins.  Follow along: @ThePP1Podcast @bkursel23 @tee3ree @always90four FOLLOW US ON APPLE PODCASTS, SPOTIFY, to name a few

Episode 21 - It's a Kicker Year in the Western Conference
The boys are back together! Ryan is back from Vegas and he brought a little somethin somethin with him. Somehow we didn't go 10 minutes over this week so the listeners will be happy.  It gets pretty heated between Ted and Ryan re: a hypothetical Leafs/Canucks trade (which Ryan may or may not have apologized for after), we get into the amazingness that is Elias Pettersson and how the Canucks STILL aren't getting calls. Travis Green makes an appearance (ya, he does!), Dudes and Guys of the week returns as well. The Power Play continues to fall and once again we go over a number of ideas that might help. Sadly, the Sedins un-retiring will not work.  We chat about our collab with @area51hockeypod and another thank you to @dougvenn for joining the guys last week. @always90four @bkursel23 @tee3ree

Episode 20 - The MVP Line - Special Guest: Doug Venn of Canucks SpeakEasy Podcast
The Vancouver Canucks sit on top of the Pacific Division! Meanwhile, Ryan happens to be in Vegas but won't stay in Vegas. He'll return to his regularly scheduled programming next week. Ted and Brayden back in the booth to mix it up one-on-one. We dove right into the ASG results, what we liked what we didn't like. Hughes impresses the Great One, Pettersson can hammer it home, and Markstrom is just that darn good. The boys put on a show and we discuss seeing Matthew Tkachuk play with the Canuck duo. Miller's performance against the Blues demanding some attention and the MVP line gets tossed back and forth a bit, Doug Venn from Canucks SpeakEasy joins us to discuss the matter in depth. Brock Boeser, where does he belong? Tanev or Stecher? And how about that Kassian/Tkachuk rivalry? It's a great time, we run a bit long but it's worth it! Enjoy.

Episode 19 - All Star Aspirations
The Canucks continue their winning ways and we continue to bring the content you crave. We go over the goaltending situation and how great it is to have two reliable goalies leading up to the post-season. We go in depth on Jake Virtanen, Brock Boeser and their rise and fall this season (guess which one).  We also chat about Gritty's adventure (non-Canuck related) Olli Juolevi's status, our guys and dudes of the week (where does Loui fit?) Ryan comes up with an idea for the underwhelming All Star Game. @Bkursel23 @tee3ree @always90four

Episode 18 - Brady's Back and Other Tales
Brady makes his triumphant return this week and we go over a lot! Ryan throws down on a big rant about the current goalie situation in Vancouver and how it is big piece of how this team will get to Cup contention.  Guys and Dudes of the week as usual, All Star talk and does Brady make a case for Edler to QB the PP1?

Episode 17 - Expansion Podcasts, Hoglander, and OH YEAH! Pete From Canucks Speakeasy
This week's episode had a bit of a twist. Unfortunately, Brady wasn't able to join us but like a good host, he had a back up ready to go.  Pete Edwards aka @pete_gas from @CanucksSpeak was in town and joined us to chat... but we're not going to tell you when so you'll have to listen to the whole thing. It's been a few weeks since we recorded so we tried to catch up on everything that we could remember (how good is Tanner Pearson right now?). We go heavy on Hoglander, some more Virtanen love, what Quinn Hughes is doing for the Canucks that just isn't normal, and then it gets heated. We welcomed our expansion podcast cousin for Dudes and Guys and I'm not gonna lie, things went off the rails during this segment.  Ryan also drops a truth bomb that was pretty awesome!  Please have a listen, rate it, review it, subscribe if you haven't on your fav pod catcher and if you don't follow us already, here's the deets: @bkursel23 @tee3ree @always90four @thepp1podcast

Episode 16 - Linden, Losing, and the Jake-yard Dog
The final PP1 podcast before Christmas and the last one until January. We went a bit long again this week, sorry not sorry. A good portion of this week's episode is a group rant and we go all-in on the problem that is the Vancouver Canucks. We cover our Dudes and Guys of the week (almost forgot), our personal memories of Trevor Linden, a dash of Christmas cheer, the continual praise of Jake Virtanen and Ryan drops a ridiculous trade idea that... just might work. Please rate, review, and subscribe. Let us know where you're listening from ie: Canada, US, Australia, Peru.  Have a Merry Christmas, folks!

Episode 15 - Taco Bout Canucks All Stars and Special guest: @CanuckClay
We ran long this week but it was so worth it. Ryan rants about the Heritage Classic goaltending decision in 2013, we talk about All-Star possibilities, Dudes and Guys of the week (spoiler alert: Brady comes to his senses),  Antoine Roussel's impact, Sportsnet's starting lineup gaff,  and some Ring of Honour discussion. THEN, we land the most popular guy on Twitter/YouTube: Clay Imoo or Canuck Clay as he's known. What a dude he is! We discuss the heavy-hitting topics like the bottle flipping video, bowling, haikus, playoff aspirations, our shared love of the Canucks on social media and IRL and the big question: When will Clay sing the national anthem at a Canucks game? All that and more this week on The PP1 Podcast #canucks #canuckclay #thepp1podcast #tacos #joshleivo

All Burrows and No Churros
We ran a short bench this week with Brayden out in Vancouver galavanting at the Canucks game with fellow podcasters whilst taking in the Alex Burrows Ring of Honour ceremony.  Antoine Roussel is back in a big way, Adam Gaudette has become a reliable piece of the puzzle, Quinn Hughes ROY? Maybe. Lots of Burrows talk, Guys and Dudes of the week and another Skate jersey game???? Will the Sabres rock their 50th-anniversary retros as well? Ryan spends a moment speaking about that.  Olli Juolevi is back in Utica and might even get a sniff at some NHL action soon. Is Loui Eriksson a viable 2nd liner? All this and more on the current episode of Diners, Drive-ins and.... wait. THE PP1 Podcast!

Canucks Poppin Power Play
This week we had TWO shows: One with Quadrelli and our normal gong show. We touched on Quinn Hughes potentially eclipsing Pettersson's rookie record, our dudes and guys of the week, how insane the Canucks/Penguins game was, the re-emergence of Nikolay Goldobin. The Canucks are getting healthier so what will the lineup look like? We touch on that topic, some potential trade chips, the Comets skate jersey and a bunch of other stuff. Tune in and enjoy the next hour of Canucks talk that is slightly educated but fun. #canucks #pp1podcast #quinnhughes #poppin

Super Special Interview w/ David Quadrelli
The PP1 Podcast was lucky enough to get "Quadrelli" on the show this week and he had a lot to say. We asked him about being the first overall pick for The Botchford Project, his "reasons" articles, the Quinn Hughes piece on Canucks.com, his welcome to the NHL moment and we grilled him on his favourite DQ blizzard.  Lots of great Canucks talk and a must listen.  Ryan also confused the heck out of him with a dodgeball decision: take out Canucks Army or The Canuck Way? An absolute honour to host David Quadrelli at the Canuck Way and Canucks Army. Make sure to follow him on the twitters and the instas. #Canucks #pp1podcast #quadrelli #thecanuckway #thebotchfordproject #dq #

The Upside Down Canucks
We run a little long this week but it was worth it. We dive into the evolution and arrival of Adam Gaudette (didn't we do this last week?), debate about Jacob Markstrom and what does he need to get back into the win column, Bo Horvat's astronomical ice time, the 2016 Free Agency disaster around the league. Our Dudes and Guys segment is once again epic and Ryan owns it as usual.  We also take a look at how the Canucks can solve their goal-scoring slump and Ryan revisits his proclamation regarding the Skate jersey game against Colorado and what the Canucks will be this season. It's episode 11, the stranger things episode. We even recorded a little video on twitter. Rate, Review, and subscribe. We'll give you a shout out. #canucks #thepp1podcast #podcast #kelowna

We're back with the BURE episode, episode 10!!! We made it! This week we get into the arrival of Adam Gaudette, Jake Virtanen's development as a reliable winger, Brady's sadness about Goldobin staying in Utica, and dirty dangles. We also put up the question of: Tryamkin or Goldy?  Brady discusses his latest purchase, Ted rides some waves and Ryan goes off on what he deems is the worst drink known to man. There's more but you'll have to listen in. #Canucks #ThePP1Podcast #Episode10 #

Canucks, The Playoffs, Peanut Butter Oreo Blizzards, and Why Does Brady dislike Josh Leivo?
Back at it for episode nine! We go heavy into the Canucks chances at the playoffs this season, why the Canucks are the "Center" of attention and more love for rookie Quinn Hughes.  Guys and Dudes are pretty impressive this week with a few surprising candidates yet again. Also, Ryan gets back into his plea for the Canucks to use the goaltenders as a true tandem/rotation instead of a 1a/1b.  We're almost at episode 10 and we ask that you rate, review, and subscribe.  We have some cool things planned down the road which we'll get into as the following grows. You'll want to hear this when it's time. BTW, that peanut butter/oreo blizzard option is aces.

Beautiful Day in The Faberhood
This week we posted a spooky episode early because of Halloween. We give our picks for who has "tricked" us this season on the Canucks and who has been a "treat". Chris Faber from Canucks Conversation and Canucks Army joins us for a solid 30 minutes about pretty much everything going on with the Canucks, AHL TV, and what it's like to be the guest instead of the host. We dive a bit deeper into the goalie "controversy" that seems to be brewing once again and Ryan isn't thrilled about it.  The PP1 Podcast AND Chris Faber have a conversation mid-game as the Canucks were taking on the Kings, a game which saw Brock Boeser net his 3rd career Hat-trick! Ryan stands by his guy status for Elias Pettersson from a week ago but concedes it was there to fire him up. A beautiful day in the Faberhood was indeed... beautiful.

Lucky no. 7! This week PP1 goes off on the tandem of Jacob Markstrom and Thatcher Demko and how amazing they have been so far, the inevitable Adam Gaudette demotion, buzzin Bo Horvat, Ted's thumb wrestling adventures, and an unlikely candidate for Canucks Guy of the Week (this is not a good thing) Check the guys out on Twitter: @Bkursel23 @alway90four @tee3ree @ThePP1Podcast

PP1 Presents: An Interview with Orland Kurtenbach
The first-ever Captain of the Vancouver Canucks, Orland Kurtenbach, allowed the guys from PP1 to share some time with him and he shared a fraction of memories with us but there was so much more to tell. Ranging from his start with the Canucks, owning a driving range and enjoying some fish and chips to a few memorable moments with the late Pat Quinn and the time he was gifted a Husky at a Canucks game on Yukon Night.  Kurt, as he likes to be called, was as open as a book and hopefully, this isn't the last time we chat with him. It sounds like there a few stories he wouldn't mind sharing in the future. Essentially an uncut interview, we hope you enjoy it as much we did. What a man, what a Canuck! #canucks, #orlandkurtenbach, #kurt, #yukonnight, #patquinn
