New, comments

Can Travis Green just play Quinn Hughes 40 minutes a night?

Crazy week last here on Nucks Misconduct, with the Vancouver Canucks and in the Pacific Division. All of that and more was covered here last week on The Quickie.

Called It

Just two days after my take on The Quickie trashing the San Jose Sharks, Peter DeBoer gets fired. Coincidence, or does Doug Wilson simply enjoy quickies?

Mistakes Happen

Last Monday wasn’t my best day. I tried to own my lapse in judgment, and thanks again to everybody who reached out (with positive and negative comments, I learned from both).

Also got to tell a story about a mistake I made regarding the Canucks and Leafs. People might start saying I’m a jinx if they listen in...

Is Quinn Hughes Underrated?

Is is possible that Quinn Hughes is being underrated, despite his other-worldly performance for the Canucks?

For this take on The Quickie, I focus on how he’s not just the Canucks most dangerous defenceman on offence, but on defence as well.

The Avs Terrific Trio

It’s not often that a team nails all of their offseason acquisitions, but the Colorado Avalanche appear to have hit three home runs with Nazem Kadri, Joonas Donskoi and Andre Burakovsky.

They might not rank higher than J.T. Miller, but they’re among the best forwards in new places so far this season.
