Last week was a mess for so many people in hockey, including current players, coaches, and even your Vancouver Canucks. All of this angst was reflected on The Quickie last week.
Eye for an Eye?
What a chicken shit play by Robert Bortuzzo on Sunday.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) November 25, 2019
Listen to The Quickie my take on the NHL should have handled Bortuzzo's punishment (FYI, they got it wrong): https://t.co/Bz4pFn4sSZ pic.twitter.com/JofAshum53
Robert Bortuzzo might be feeling elated after the dirtiest hockey play of the season got overshadowed by all of the other bullshit that occurred in the NHL last week.
I argued that Bortuzzo should be out as long as Nashville Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson remains sidelined. The Department of Player Safety should be tuning into The Quickie...
A Bad Week for the NHL...
Most emotional episode of The Quickie yet about a bad week for the NHL.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) November 26, 2019
Fuck the goons, fuck the old boys club who play mind games, and FUCK racist old white dude collecting paychecks.
I'd rather talk about the best sport on earth rather than this shit: https://t.co/2VAxg0El0g
Despite the anger, at least there was some justice with the Bill Peters firing. Also, the fact that this conversation is blowing up in the hockey world likely means we see less of it in the future. Small victory.
Is the Sharks’ Surge a Mirage?
One of the NHL’s hottest teams during the month of November was the San Jose Sharks. That’s bad news for the Canucks, who currently sit below the Sharks in the standings.
However, there are reasons to believe that the Sharks surge is a mirage. Listen in to hear my take on why that might be the case.
The Canucks loss to Pittsburgh was heartbreaking, but the game shouldn’t have been close. Pittsburgh was clearly the better team, and there were some troubling developments on the road trip. I chat about that on The Quickie, and look ahead to (hopefully) a better month of December.
