Last Week on The Quickie: High-Flying Canucks are Entertaining as Hell

New, comments

Back to the West Coast roots with three of the five episodes last week about your Vancouver Canucks.

They say a quickie a day keeps the doctor away.

Okay I made that up....but it doesn’t hurt to try right? Here’s a summary of what happened on The Quickie last week.

Montreal is the new Minny

Montreal has to be thanking their lucky stars for that hot start, because they are one of the worst teams in hockey at the moment.

It looks like the Habs are set to become the next Minnesota. Hear why that’s the case on The Quickie.

Thank You, Alex Burrows

I snagged some last minute tickets to the game on Tuesday to see one of my favourite Canucks be honoured by the organization.

I’m sure I’m not alone in saying he’s one of my favourites, and I tell the story about how he became one of the most beloved Canucks in team history. Here’s hoping the Burrows haters tune in to increase their heart rate.

High-Flying Canucks are Entertaining as Hell

After some dreadful hockey we endured in this market earlier in the decade, at least the Canucks are a fun hockey team to watch this year. However, does fun hockey equal sustainable winning hockey in the playoffs? I break it down on the episode

Three Thursday Bangers

If you want to know which games to watch on a Thursday, make sure you listen to The Quickie before 4:00 pm.

I’ve done this twice now, and four of the six games I picked went to overtime. One that didn’t included a nine-goal performance, when the Colorado Avalanche beat the Nashville Predators 9-4.

Last week I highlighted the Avalanche and the Montreal Canadiens. The Avs won 3-2 in Cayden Primeau’s first NHL start. The Vegas Golden Knights lost 3-2 to the New York Islanders in overtime in an affair with lots of scoring chances at both ends of the ice. Then, I picked the Dallas Stars and the Winnipeg Jets, which ended in a 3-2 overtime victory for the Stars.

Best Decade in Canucks History?

I won’t say too much about this now since we’re gonna have a deeper look into this on Nucks Misconduct this week. However if you want a hunch about my opinion on the matter, tap the link above and take the five minutes to listen in.
