Maybe it’s because Christmas is in the air, but there isn’t as much doom and gloom in Vancouver this week compared to the last.
After their loss to the Vegas Golden Knights last weekend, hoards of people online and on airwaves were calling for Travis Green’s head.
Hey, winning fixes everything. Know what else will solve your Christmas woes? Catching up on these episodes of The Quickie
Pump the brakes on #FireGreen
So much vitriol towards the #Canucks, and especially Travis Green over the last 24 hours.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) December 16, 2019
I'm here to tell you people need to pump the brakes #FireGreen bandwagon.
Seriously, what would you do in his situation?

Yeah, can we table this discussion for at least a couple more months?
Why I’ll never one of the #BenningBros
Hey, I’m a family man, but this is one family I just can’t get behind.
Western Conference playoff locks
How many locks do you think there are in the Western Conference? I currently spot six, and I list them on The Quickie. How do these “locks” impact the Canucks in the second half of the season?
Before I bombard the beaches of Australia, still a couple episodes of The Quicke left to go:— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) December 19, 2019
I break down by top three games of the night tonight: https://t.co/RqTMUENl8p
Yes, #VegasBorn and the #Canucks made the list. Not guaranteeing a win, but the Nucks will respond tonight. pic.twitter.com/YAsYIrajPI
Yupp, I’m off to Australia in a matter of hours. :)
I’ll keep these Thursday segments going in the New Year because hey, I pick some decent Thursday nights games. Last week I had the New York Islanders and Boston Bruins (which went to a shootout), along with the Carolina Hurricanes and Colorado Avalanche. While the Avs vs. Canes duel wasn’t as spectacular as it could have been, it did feature a dramatic late-game lead change.
The Canucks and Golden Knights made my list too. That turned out to be a pretty decent contest in itself...
The #Canucks play 18 of their final 46 games against divisional opponents. How many of those games do they need to win to make the playoffs?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) December 20, 2019
I chat about that, and the #Canes defying the notion that divisional records matter, on The Quickie: https://t.co/CiPNcTUq7F pic.twitter.com/10WEyWq67M
Divisional games are going to make or break the Canucks down the stretch. They have two more games against Vegas, three more against Calgary and four more against Arizona...
Unless they want to try to defy logic like the Hurricanes, they need wins in the division. It’s an attainable goal for Travis Green and company.
