Let’s pretend there’s no labour dispute, and the Canucks hit the ice at the Saddledome Thursday to start the season against the Calgary Flames. That’s what sports editor Jonathan McDonald and hockey writer Ben Kuzma do on the latest edition of the Province Sports Podcast. Does Alex Burrows play up to his big contract this season? Can Zach Kassian make an impact? Are the Canucks dependent on Ryan Kesler coming back healthy and hungry to have a chance at winning the Stanley Cup? Plus, the lads discuss the CFL’s intriguing documentary series, Engraved on a Nation, and McDonald manages to bring up Edmonton even without Paul Chapman in the room. On that note, Chappy returns to the “studio” on Thursday.
