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
With @kylebhawan and I expanding on Meanwhile in Canadia on @silkynfilthy, it got me thinking....when will the Stanley Cup finally return to Canada?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) April 7, 2020
Well, I have an outlandish proposal for how to achieve that, on The Quickie: https://t.co/IiWrGKkdgA pic.twitter.com/exyg1VMaVn
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
Nashville might top the list of places to visit in the States, but some guy named "Rusty" really hates the city.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) April 8, 2020
I give you some lyrics from his song, and talk about a former #Canucks legend who became the #Preds most surprising player in '19-20

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
Armchair GM's, Don't be Dumba...— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) April 9, 2020
Excuse the cheesy pun as I review the best and worst of #mnwild on The Quickie, with a message for armchair GM's...

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
#How2020CouldGetWorse, The NHL returns, only to see the Boston Bruins lift the Stanley Cup...— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) April 14, 2020
Jokes aside, the Boston Bruins are the next victim as I continue to look around the NHL on The Quickie: https://t.co/PCkwKgfvFb pic.twitter.com/qJiMYEEUF7
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.
