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?
Is Buffalo America's most Canadian city?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) April 28, 2020
Well, they at least have that 21st-century spirit of hockey futility, just like the rest of Canada.
My take on the best and worst of Buffalo on The Quickie: https://t.co/4zgOFxCpcO pic.twitter.com/LHpW1jyQeP
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
The Ottawa Senators might have sucked this season but hey, this was Mark Borowiecki's best season ever.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) April 30, 2020
I give a shout out to the vet before dishing on Ottawa's most disappointing player on The Quickie: https://t.co/DJaDhOlo4x pic.twitter.com/vimA9fw5y2
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?
They say to end your week on a positive note, so I talked about the Detroit Red Wings on The Quickie today...— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) May 1, 2020

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.
Monday Quickie: Bring Back the NHL draft in June
There's no way the NHL can please everyone no matter what happens with the draft.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) May 4, 2020
After looking at both sides, I believe the NHL draft should return in June.

What do you think?
When should the 2020 NHL Draft take place?
This poll is closed
June, before play resumes.
In the fall when the season concludes
