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
The #Habs got my wrath on The Quickie today...although fans in Montreal are probably more upset than I am.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) December 2, 2019
My main question was, is Montreal the next Philly or Minny? Too good to suck but not good enough to complete?

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
Don't look now, but the #Canucks are one of the highest-scoring teams in hockey.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) December 5, 2019
Can they carry this high-flying hockey into the playoffs? I talk about it on The Quickie: https://t.co/bbn6JnrRjJ pic.twitter.com/4E172gK6VR
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.
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?
This question popped into my mind this morning....which of the #Canucks five decades has been the best in franchise history?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) December 7, 2019
We're gonna dig into this a bit further at @nucksmisconduct, but listen to my initial thoughts on it during The Quickie: https://t.co/hiPOb49VDp pic.twitter.com/z6muNWgVLm
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.
