Black Aces Podcast: Could Elias Pettersson carry the Canucks to the playoffs this season?

And if he did, would that be a good thing?

Pass it to Bulis

The Black Aces Podcast is back, featuring weekly discussion of the Vancouver Canucks from a unique collection of hockey writers.

In episode 3, the Black Aces are hyped up about Elias Pettersson after his 5-point Friday night and they’ve got playoffs on the mind. Specifically, would it be a good thing if Pettersson carried the Canucks to the playoffs this season?

Featured writers in this week’s episode:

  • Omar A, writer at Daily Hive and tennis aficionado
  • Rob Williams, sports editor at Daily Hive and The Hockey Guy
  • Jeremy Davis, analytics and prospect expert at CanucksArmy
  • Daniel Wagner, me

The playoffs might be a longshot, but not as long a shot as it seemed to be before the season started. What ultimately matters is how the Canucks respond to making (or not making) the playoffs. Will they see the playoffs as “job done,” or will they treat it as just one step along the path of their rebuild, with more work to be done?

We also discuss Francesco Aquilini “live-tweeting” Friday’s game, the possibilities of Alex Edler and/or Brandon Sutter being traded, giving Jim Benning some credit for the trades he’s made that have worked out, Willie Desjardins returning to the NHL, and nicknames for Elias Pettersson.
