Give Dr. Bonnie Henry the Conn Smythe | Silky N’ Filthy podcast

The NHL could learn some lessons about valuing safety over profit.

It only took one tweet from my co-host Kyle Bhawan to set the tone for this week’s episode.

Honestly, Dr. Bonnie Henry deserves all the credit for putting safety ahead of the NHL’s money-hungry demands. We want to see hockey back, but we want to see it done right.

While Dr. Henry comes out looking like a hero once again, it was not a very good week for the NHL. They muzzled the news about Auston Matthews

Listen to our takes on why the public needs to know about these COVID-19 cases among NHL players, and why the NHL needs to take a good look in the mirror.

Speaking of taking a good look in the mirror, we talk about the Hockey Hall of Fame selections, and the travesty that was shunning Alexander Mogilny, once again, for middling defenceman Kevin Lowe.

Finally, we end by previewing the the Hockey Hall of Fame class for 2021. Will the Sedins rightfully be selected, or will the Eastern bias factor in? Who else should go in the Hall next year?

Here’s a rundown of the episode:

  • Matthews news muzzled & why the NHL is fucked (4:30)
  • Dr. Bonnie Henry is a hero (14:00)
  • Hall of Fame rundown: Fuck Kevin Lowe & Moginly gets shafted (17:30)
  • Who’s making it to the hall next year? (29:30)
