The last seven days were a roller coaster of emotions for Canucks fans. Thankfully, it ended on a good note.
That range of emotions is reflected on this last batch of Quickie episodes, in what likely is the last batch of the season.
Enjoy and for those who have listened in at any point throughout the season, I appreciate you tuning in. It wasn’t always easy to drum up content during a five-month hockey hiatus, but the listens kept coming in and for that, I’m grateful.

What are you watching for today at the NHL Draft?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 6, 2020
I give you three things I'm keeping my eye on from both a #Canucks and a league-wide perspective, today on The Quickie podcast.

Suffice to say that all of those teams made some...interesting draft day decisions.
Disappointing Day for Jimbo
Tuesday was a disappointing day for Benning.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 7, 2020
Toffoli is hitting the market because of shitty contracts handed out to marginal players. That's on Jimbo.
The good news? It could all be rectified today. I talk about that on The Quickie: https://t.co/MzvfwhCcvK pic.twitter.com/uitJyTJhah
Last Tuesday is when we found out that players such as Toffoli were headed to market. This was the first sign that a number of the Canucks free agents would not be returning.
Embrace Better Defence
Embrace a better defence, Vancouver.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 8, 2020
The potential departures of Tanev & Stecher are excusable. What's less excusable is lacking dynamic replacements for them.
That's why I'm hoping the #Canucks complete this deal for OEL. More about that on The Quickie: https://t.co/l1VM6CRu1F pic.twitter.com/lv32Fwbt1Y
This was an episode for all of those who were turning their nose up at an Ekman-Larsson trade.
Thankfully...there was a better move to be made
Tuesday morning Quickie: Imperfect Jim Scores A Win
I absolutely love the Nate Schmidt addition.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) October 13, 2020
That doesn't salvage some of Jimbo's losses this offseason, but you have to give him the W here.
Might be my last Quickie episode for some time with fatherhood on the horizon. Thanks for listening ❤https://t.co/eUwAqH2RhF pic.twitter.com/OuQgVia3lK
It’s been a fun ride, waking up every morning to make The Quickie Podcast. It might return down the road but for now, it’s on Power of the Towel host Nick Bondi and Sippin’ On A 40 host Kyle Bhawan to carry the Nucks Misconduct Podcast Network.
