Last Week on The Quickie | Dreaming of a Hughes, Byfuglien pairing

In times like these, all you can do is dream.

In times like these, all you can do is dream and reminisce.

That’s what The Quickie managed to do last week.

Why the 14-15 Canucks plummeted so rapidly

Remember when the 2014-15 Canucks were a top-10 team in the NHL, only to plummet to the NHL basement in the following year?

I look at a few key reasons why that drop off occurred, and break down the debate over which team was better: the ‘14-15 Canucks or the ‘19-20 squad.

Don’t even bother, Tampa

Tampa’s biggest mistake of all time was chirping Miami.

On the ice however, things are pretty rosy for the inferior Floridan city (although really, which city in Florida isn’t inferior?). Among Tampa’s smaller forward however, there were mixed results in ‘19-20. I give my picks for the most surprising player on the team and the biggest disappointment on The Quickie.

Dreaming of a Hughes, Byfuglien pairing

Don’t tell me you didn’t do the same once news of Dustin Byfuglien’s contract termination broke on Friday.

Monday Morning Quickie: Taking it easy on CotU

Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of reasons to chirp the city of Toronto, today just wasn’t the day to do it. I tell you my picks for their most surprising player and biggest disappointment, while offering sympathy to victims of the senseless shooting in Nova Scotia.
