Canucks a-go for China

Vancouver Canucks' Sven Baertschi, top left to right, Henrik Sedin, of Sweden, Troy Stecher and Daniel Sedin, bottom, of Sweden, celebrate Baertschi's second goal against the Colorado Avalanche during the third period of an NHL hockey game in Vancouver, B.C., on Monday January 2, 2017. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck ORG XMIT: VCRD125Ed Willes joins Paul Chapman to talk all about the Canucks announcement they’ll play preseason games in China to start next season. What does this mean for the NHL in the Olympics with this move clearly showing the league is courting the Asian audience? What will it mean for the Canucks in terms of disrupting their season?

Usually the preseason is a yawn, so Ed and Paul ponder how appetizing next season’s pre-campaign will be for the Canucks with Brock Boeser leading the charge amongst an intriguing pool of young prospects.

The boys kick around the development paths of Junior versus NCAA, then talk about who the real contenders are for the Stanley Cup this year.

Last they finish up with a quick look at the Whitecaps, can they start to capture the local market with the Canucks about to end their season, or are they at risk of drifting into oblivion after a disastrous start to the season.
