Another week is in the books on The Quickie covering the good, the bad, and the downright dreadful in the NHL.
You can listen to all five episodes in under a half hour...perfect for those extended poop breaks at works.
Guddy & MDZ Flashbacks
Did seeing Michael Del Zotto and Erik Gudbranson reunited in Anaheim give you some bad flashbacks?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 28, 2019
It made me shudder... I talk about the futility of that pairing and the #LetsGoDucks wasting John Gibson's prime years on the latest epi of The Quickie: https://t.co/ZioFYBF1F7 pic.twitter.com/huh19P3zFp
Speaking of poop...Erik Gudbranson and Michael Del Zotto are a pairing once again in Anaheim. Somehow, the Ducks beat the Canucks on Friday despite being vehemently outplayed. Perhaps I cursed the Canucks for poo-pooing this forgettable duo?
Nucks or Yotes?
Might touch on this tomorrow during @silkynfilthy but who would you take stock in right now, the #Canucks or the #Yotes ?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 29, 2019
Listen to my 5-minute take on The Quickie: https://t.co/nWV7C70hFF pic.twitter.com/V6SM1ayDUj
The main reason? Elite offensive talent. It seems like the people agree as well.
Death to sophomore slumps
Are sophomore slumps still a thing?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 30, 2019
Seemingly not for the superstars in today's NHL. I talk about how young guns in the #NHL are debunking the myth in the latest episode of The Quickie: https://t.co/JtHGFw0dVy pic.twitter.com/C3aRqEO4Rc
Every year the word “sophomore slump” gets mentioned, but is this the year where the term sophomore slump gets put to rest?
I talked about how the young superstars in the league are proving that the term is flawed, although middling players are certainly more susceptible to the dreaded term.
Once again, are the Isles for real?
Don't be picky just be happy with this Quickie— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 31, 2019
Unless you're an #Isles fan...then you can throw some hate my way.
I talk about the Islanders surprising once again and why it doesn't seem sustainable in the latest episode of The Quickie: https://t.co/2P3Wo0wEfz pic.twitter.com/sz7GD7QqjN
Are they really going to pull this off again? I cast some doubts on it in the episode, based on some troubling, underlying numbers.
Most confusing team in the league so far
While the Islanders might deserve the nod for most confusing team, I make the argument that it’s actually the Calgary Flames. They blew a lead against the Carolina Hurricanes last week before beating the Nashville Predators in a game where they got dominated.
Still, something seems off about this team. As someone who wants to see the Vancouver Canucks succeed, I sure hope to keep smelling a stench from Calgary as the season progresses.
