New, comment

The fastest hockey podcast in the world is backing a quick return for the NHL draft. Go figure.

May the Fourth be with you all.

While there aren’t any Star Wars references in the episodes below, the podcast does discuss an idea that previously seemed other-worldy: the NHL draft returning before than 2019-20 season concludes.

Catch up on that and more last week on The Quickie

Buffalo: America’s Most Canadian City?

This is the best compliment that the ciy of Buffalo has ever received.

Aside from that, there isn’t too many nice things you can say, despite my efforts on the episode.

The pick for Buffalo’s most disappointing player was an easy one, with Jeff Skinner pulling one of the greatest disappearing acts of the 2019-20 season. After signing an eight-year, $72 million dollar deal, the enigmatic winger recorded just 14 goals and 23 points in 59 games this season. Woof.

Borowiecki’s Best Season Ever

You know who almost had as many points as Skinner? Ottawa’s Mark Borowiecki, who posted career highs with seven goals and 18 points.

He also stopped a robbery in Vancouver back in December. This dude is basically the Unsung Hero of the NHL season.

How Does One Simply Choose Detroit’s Most Disappointing Player?

Outside from a handful of players, there were a ton of abysmal performances on the Red Wings this season.

It wasn’t easy to choose one, but I managed to pick the Wings’ most disappointing player. What an honour.
