One under-appreciated story for the Pacific Division this year has been the long-dominant trio of Californian NHL clubs crumbling this season.

It wasn’t always easy to throw the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks some love on The Quickie, but this is a positive show, after all. Except for the parts where I call out each team’s most disappointing player and chirp the city. That part isn’t so positive.

Check out the healthy mix of positive and negative storylines among these clubs that were profiled on The Quickie last week.

Ain’t No Thrill With Phil

Maybe I was starting to lose my mind in quarantine with this episode. That, or the City of Glendale was really calling out to me. Warm weather, cheap real estate...

This episode was unofficially brought to you by the City of Glendale.

Quick Downfall in LA

I gave Ben Hutton some love, but he wasn’t my vote for the most surprising player on the Kings this season...

Best and (mostly) Worst of Anaheim

It’s a sad state of affairs in Anaheim when Adam Henrique has been your best and most surprising player.

I picked John Gibson as the biggest disappointment. Not sure what it is other than that he’s lost all hope playing behind the Ducks.

What about that Canucks draft pick in limbo?

With the Canucks first round draft pick potentially still in limbo, I look at three intriguing prospects that should be available in the middle of the first round, which is where the Canucks would pick if they kept their first rounder.

Monday Morning Quickie: Best and worst of the Cup champs

Lots of great performances in St. Louis this season, but there was one easy answer for the most disappointing player. Our SB Nation friends over at St. Louis Game Time had a good piece on him.
