Silky N’ Filthy Podcast: 8.5 Million Problems and Roberto LUONGONE

Lu is gone, but what’s his legacy? That and 8.5 million other problems get discussed on the NHL’s silkiest podcast.

NHL: Florida Panthers at Vancouver Canucks
Jan 20, 2017; Vancouver, British Columbia, CAN; Vancouver Canucks forward Henrik Sedin (33) celebrates his goal for his 1000th NHL point against Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo (1) during the second period at Rogers Arena.

What’s the cheesier line, that greatest goalie in franchise history is LUONGONE, or that Flower Man Bhawan, now Smoothie Man Bhawan, is pulling out the “smooth moves” by taking a girl to a smoothie bar for a first date?

It ain’t Silky N’ Filthy without a little cringe. We’re talking Luongo running to the bathroom kind of cringe here.

Now that the storied Canucks netminder has retired, host Kyle and Trevor debate what his legacy is. For all the great things Luongo did for this city, the takes aren’t all rainbows and butterflies.

The other topic on our mind this week are the slew of Restricted Free Agents who are about to cash in big. We give our predictions on what their contracts like look like, if any of them will get poached, and who we would chase as a GM. We wore out the armrests on this one.

Here’s a rundown of the episode:

  • A little Luongo tire-pumping (3:00)
  • Reminiscing on his best season as Canuck (6:30)
  • Okay, but what’s his real legacy? (8:10)
  • Meanwhile in Canadia: A Naked Protest (19:30)
  • RFA madness (27:00)
  • Beggsy’s hypothetical RFA of choice for the Canucks (32:00)
  • Pretentious RFA predictions (36:00)
    -Brayden Point
    -Mikko Rantanen (37:45)
    -Brock Boeser (40:00)
    -Charlie McAvoy & Zach Werenski (40:45)
    -Matthew Tkachuk (43:40)
    -The Kyle Connor/Patrik Laine conundrum (46:30)
    -Could someone screw the Sharks? (49:45)

Now if you were GM of the Canucks, would you consider giving any player an offer sheet?


If you were Benning would you offer sheet any RFA’s?

We’ll keep the episodes coming over the summer to fulfill the thirst for puck talk and bullshit?

Wait, no one asked for that?

Silky N’ Filthy Summer Tour is coming for your ear holes anyways.
