It only took one tweet from my co-host Kyle Bhawan to set the tone for this week’s episode.
I wanted the NHL in Vancouver so Dr. Bonnie Henry could be awarded the Conn Smythe.— Kyle (@kylebhawan) June 25, 2020
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?
Just give Bonnie Henry the Conn Smythe already.— silkynfilthy (@silkynfilthy) June 25, 2020
In a show of yin and yangs, we discuss the NHL muzzling coronavirus news while pumping up Bonnie Henry as the GOAT here on the West Coast.
Also, we look ahead to the 2021 Hall of Fame class.
