Last Week on The Quickie podcast | Why Boeser for Dumba was always a ridiculous proposal

The fastest hockey podcast in the world finishes looking at the most surprising player and biggest disappointment on each Western Conference Team.

Adios, West Coast.

As The Quickie podcast powers through looking at the most surprising player and biggest disappointment on every team in the NHL, I wrapped up with the final teams in the Central Division.

You know what to do next. Grab the headphones, go get some sunshine, and catch up on what you missed on The Quickie.

Bring the Cup Back to Canada

It’s a little out there, but you can’t listen in and say that those outlandish match-up proposals aren’t enticing.

A little Elias Pettersson vs. Auston Matthews in the playoffs? Dare to dream, and sign me up.

Rusty Hates Nashville

This episode was for the Nick Bonino fan club. My choice for the Preds most surprising player this season was a bit of an easy one. He’s been arguably their best centerman considering his offensive production and his defensive impact.

Bonino was on pace to surpass 40 points for the second time in his career. The only other time he accomplished that was his last season in Anaheim, when he posted 29 points prior to joining the Canucks.

Despite the love for Nashville, not everyone is a fan. In fact, some guy named Rusty wrote a song about why he hates Nashville, and I read a few touching lyrics to end the episode.

Don’t Be Dumba

Remember hearing the words “Boeser for Dumba” tossed around before this year’s trade deadline? Well, I talk about how ridiculous that proposal is for the Canucks on the episode.

By some metrics, Boeser underperformed this season and still posted solid numbers. Dumba, on the other hand, struggled in bouncing back from injury, and he was my pick for Minnesota’s most disappointing player.

Post-Weekend Quickie: Screw You, Boston

The Boston Bruins have to be among the most disappointed teams if the season shuts down, but you won’t find any sympathy for them here on The Quickie.
