The best part of the lockout was no Vancouver hockey media.

Oh please, who listens to the radio or reads those rag papers Sun/Province? Both of these guys are irrelevant.

Being a fan of both the Canucks and Jets I've tried figuring out who is worse.

Jason Botchford or Gary Lawless. Gary Lawless is a fat arsehole who never wanted the Jets back, yet he's their beat writer. Thinks he knows EVERYTHING. Then you have Botchford who is a dumb smuck.

And I don't even remember who Dan Russell is from when I used to listen to CKNW

I'm not sure what Botchford has against the whl? He's always been a "Fox News" kind of reporter...the Team 1040 has lost so much credibility since they've been infiltrated by The Vancouver Province sports department. I wonder why that paper is hanging on by a thread?

I used to listen to sports talk back in the day.....I got tired of hearing callers that were making valid points being cut off and ripped a new arsehole in a five minute rant by Russell, simply because he didn't agree with their opinions. He lost all credibility with me when he spouted off about Prince George being a crappy hockey community, simply because the locals stopped lining Rick Brodsky's greedy pockets, when he's put zero effort into making the Cougars a winning organization for 15+ years!

However, I do respect his years of service in the media.

Rather watch sekeres go against sheldon.

At least that would be a somewhat intelligent arguement

Botchford is the type of person who complains but has no ideas of how to actually fix the situations he speaks of. Seems like a negativity generator, his articles are formulaic and predictable.

Typical hack writer that we have for our local media.

There wasn't a lot of "positivity" about the Canucks' season this year to write about. Warning signs were everywhere with this team.

Nothing wrong with Botch. Probably the ballsiest member of our media, which you've at least got to respect.
