So yes, the Vancouver Canucks just lost three games in a row.
They blew it to a bad Ottawa Senators team, lost to the Centre of the Universe and sucked against the BJ’s.
Is it time to panic yet? Well, scroll down to find my take below while looking back at the week that was on The Quickie.
Are the Edmonton Oilers a threat?
Are the #Oilers actually a threat?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) February 25, 2020
I talk about why this team kind of, sort of, has me worried as the playoff race in the Pacific division begins to heat up.

I made this episode after the Oilers shrewd deadline moves, where they added Mike Green, Tyler Ennis, Andreas Athanasiou.
But let’s be real...while the additions were intriguing, this team rides and dies on the backs of Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid.
If you’re the Canucks would you want to face those two in the playoffs? I wouldn’t.
Can the New York Rangers make the playoffs
Forget that talk about the Habs or the Sabres making a playoff push in the East.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) February 26, 2020
One team that does have a shot: the New York Rangers.

After being out of the playoff race for most of the season, the New York Rangers have roared back into postseason contention. Prior to recording this episode, the blueshirts had won nine of 10 games, and sat just two points out of the playoffs.
They followed that up by losing both games of a home and home to a Philadelphia Flyers team that’s quietly gunning for the Metro Division title.
After the weekend results, the Rangers are now four points out of a playoff spot, with the Columbus Blue Jackets hanging on to the final Wild Card slot. Twelve of their last 17 games are against playoff teams, so the Rangers will need a strong push if they want to qualify for the postseason.
The Benning and Dorion...errr...Redemption Tour?
What's your opinion of Jim Benning and Pierre Dorion?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) February 27, 2020
As the #Canucks and #Sens prepare to face each other tonight, I look at two general managers who have seen their reputations slowly change. Are they worthy of more praise?

Prior to the Sens and Canucks game on Thursday, I look at two general managers who have begun to shake off the label they both received from many as the “worst general managers in the league.”
So, does either deserve to shake the hate? And who’s done a better job in their respective situations?
200 Episodes and Most Important Canucks Games Remaining
Not hard to rack up episodes when you have four shows on your network, but still a big day for us at @nucksmisconduct.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) February 28, 2020
Damn, the 200th episode falls into my lap this Friday on The Quickie.
I thank my mom & look at the 3 biggest #Canucks games remaining: https://t.co/Dcmr52R8WX pic.twitter.com/kRiv21MU48
Hey, when you record about eight to 10 episodes per week combined between our four shows (The Quickie, Silky N’ Filthy, Sippin’ on a 40 & Power of the Towel), it’s easy to rack up the count.
Still, I had to thank my mom for this crowning achievement.
I also have to thank the schedule makers (sorry, Kent) for providing Canucks fans with some intriguing match-ups coming down the stretch. I preview the best three on this episode of The Quickie.
