Two and a half months after hockey paused, The Quickie’s look at each team’s most surprising player and biggest disappointment is wrapping up.
What the hell happens next?
Best and Worst of NYR
Despite his extremely questionable ethics and points of view, @TonyDee07 was pretty good at that hockey thing for the Rangers.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) May 26, 2020

Tony DeAngelo might not be an exempliary human being, which might be one reason why his on-ice performance this season flew under the radar.
That, along with the fact that his teammates Artemi Panarin and Mika Zibanejad were two of the best players in hockey this season.

Here are my quick thoughts on the match-up between the Canucks and the Wild, and why this series really depends on the play of Jacob Markstrom.

Look, there’s no way the Canucks can lose to the Wild...right?
In all seriousness, this isn’t a terrific match-up for the Canucks. If hockey resumes, they’ll play against a Wild team that is terrific defensively and underrated offensively.
That being said, the Canucks have the edge on offence and in goal. Is that enough to offset their defensive deficiencies?
No Sympathy for the Devils
Sorry, I got no sympathy for the Devils.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) May 29, 2020
Hey, they've won three Cups, okay?
New Jersey made it easy for me to pick their most surprising and disappointing players. Here's my #NJDevils recap on The Quickie: https://t.co/4ixKc8xNaH pic.twitter.com/ombpBT3nQl
Team 31/31 on my look around the NHL. This one was easy. The Devils most surprising player was Mackenzie Blackwood, who posted sparkling .915 save percentage and a 22-14-8 record for a terrible defensive team in the Devils.
And while there were disappointments in New Jersey, including the performance from Jack Hughes, P.K. Subban’s performance has to be the biggest disappointment for the Devils. Two years removed from being a Norris candidate, Subban was dreadful defensively, wasn’t a factor on offence and chewed up a ton of ice time playing almost 23 minutes per game.

There's also a lot of vitriol out there as well. Remember to be good to each other.
