  1. Trying to stay positive despite the fact the Canucks will probably be out of it by the time the next podcast is up 🙂

    Just a point of information (aka little-known fact for ‘ya, Normy): you mentioned that you’d like to see minor penalties last the full 2 minutes no matter how many goals are scored. This was the rule in the NHL until 1955, when it was changed because the Canadiens would routinely score multiple goals on one power play. Dubbed the “Canadiens rule,” it was one of two rules that came about directly as a result of a powerhouse team taking advantage of penalty calls.
    The other was from the Oilers in the ’80s, when they would goad teams into taking penalties (when the Oil were heading to the PK) so they could take advantage of more 4-on-4 or 3-on-3 situations and let Gretz, Kurri, Coffey, Anderson, Messier, etc. run around in wide-open ice. The rule changed so that coincidental/off-setting penalties would not have an effect on the number of players on the ice. This was rescinded in the ’90s.
