Ed Willes joins Paul Chapman to talk about what the aftermath of a classic Grey Cup looks like. Will the league gain momentum? Or is the CFL always going to be what it is now, a Canadian institution that usually delivers a championship classic? Two or three-game series in the East and West Finals? Expansion to cities like Kelowna and Halifax? What can, or should, be done to create interest in the CFL regular season?
The Canucks recent upturn in form provides some fodder for looking at where the team will go. While the braintrust seemed uninterested in giving Troy Stetcher, Nikita Tryamkin and Bo Horvat prominent roles at the start of the season, they’ve been dragged in that direction, and it appears to be working.
Will that mean the Canucks will stay the course? Does it mean the team will look to be aggressive in the trade market if they stay in a playoff race?
Also, what of Jake Virtanen: what his role is during the second half of the season, Ed thinks he has a chance to come up and contribute, Paul thinks his future with the Canucks looks a bit more uncertain.
Finally the talk turns to MLS. After the spectacular matchup between Toronto and Montreal, and now seeing Seattle in the Final against TFC, what do the Whitecaps have to do to get into that conversation.
