Preseason’s not a test of anything: Talkin’ Canucks with Jason Botchford

PNG0919S-Canucks camp-100How much can you really rate preseason?

Not much. That’s obvious. That’s also a point that needs driving home.

Jason Botchford joins Patrick Johnston and Jonathan McDonald to talk Canucks, with just two games left in the preseason.

Can we even say whether this team will be any good? And how long will Alex Burrows survive away from the Sedins? He’s never scored away from them like he does with them – and that’s now the experiment Willie Desjardins is running with.

There’s a points target from the defence that’s a problem, Botch figures.

Plus – how do you brand a city? Edmonton keeps debating if it’s the city of champions. Most of us know the reality, but J-Mac seems to be in denial. (On the other hand, there’s no denying the branding efforts of the Canucks under Trevor Linden.)
