This is like Westy’s timeless Cup prediction all over again, except this one is coming true.
The Canucks are winning the Cup
Speaking of hype, I talked about those Stanley Cup odds from @MoneyPuckdotcom and the starts from the #Canucks and #NHLBruins on the Monday edition of The Quickie: https://t.co/G2LQYFic9T pic.twitter.com/NgbgdTcE6R— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) November 5, 2019
So MoneyPuck.com gave the Canucks the best odds of winning the Cup last week. Don’t be deterred by the four-game losing streak the Canucks are currently on, as their odds have only dropped down to 4th-best.
Marchand or Pastrnak?
Although a debate between these two might induce nightmares for many Canucks fans, I vouch that it’s okay to have a healthy appreciation for these two superstars.
Which one did I pick though? Tune in to find out.
Gotta give the #stlblues some love for their hot start.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) November 6, 2019
Vladdy who? The Blues don't even need him, he's just a luxury. Kudos to one of the best GM's in hockey, Doug Armstrong, for building a contending team with depth: https://t.co/ipEWLuHYY6 pic.twitter.com/oAGQeW0xMz
Doug Armstrong, you da real MVP.
Arguably the best general manager in the league has built a team so deep that not even an injury to their best player can deter them. The Blues continue to roll, even without Vladimir Tarasenko.
Thursday’s Thrilling Affairs
Some juicyyyyyyy matchups in the NHL tonight. I hype up the three best ones on The Quickie: https://t.co/QavOEEEIBh— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) November 7, 2019
And no, I didn't even mention #Canucks and #Blackhawks as one of the games. That's how good the sched is tonight pic.twitter.com/A45nZ3AXZE
Thursday is usually a great day for hockey, and I picked out my three must-watch games of the night.
If you listened to me, you were probably entertained. The Vegas Golden Knights and Toronto Maple Leafs played in the least thrilling affair, but even that had a good overtime portion as John Tavares scored the OT winner. The Pens and Isles also went to overtime, and the Colorado Avalanche blasted the Nashville Predators for nine goals in a 9-4 win.
Connor Hellebucyk has been the main reason that the Winnipeg Jets are treading water, and he proved it after this episode was released. He stymied the Canucks in a 4-1 Jets win.
