It’s back baby.
Not just NHL hockey, but the fastest hockey podcast in the world.
Now, I’m not going to sit here and tell you it’s the best hockey podcast in the world, but it’s definitely the quickest.
With hockey right around the corner, our daily five-minute hockey show returned last week on the Nucks Misconduct Podcast Network.
Here’s what you might have missed.
MacEwen’s surge one of the best stories from Canucks’ camp
MacEwen's surge has been the best story of #Canucks camp so far.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) July 20, 2020
Has his performance been overstated, or are there implications for next year?

When I went through my thoughts on how the Canucks should construct their line-up prior to training camp, I had Zack MacEwen on the outside looking in. The logic was that Jake Virtanen and his 18 goals deserves a shot on the third line before the PEI native, and that if healthy, Micheal Ferland should also draw in ahead of MacEwen.
Well, with Canucks’ training camp in the books, we now know that Ferland and MacEwen are narrowly ahead of Jake Virtanen on the depth chart.
Canucks’ rivalry with the Bruins is dead
The #Canucks rivalry with the Boston Bruins is dead. It's been dead for ages.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) July 21, 2020
This is all the more reason to put your good energy behind a long Canucks playoff run this summer. This market needs new playoff memories.
My take on VAN/BOS on The Quickie: https://t.co/VbmT18FQp8 pic.twitter.com/0d7qdHqrUv
I made this episode after Sportsnet’s documentary about the 2011 Bruins’ Cup Run aired on television.
Just remember, Boston doesn’t care about us anymore, so we should stop pretending that this rivalry is real.
Don’t forget about hockey’s race issue.
Enjoy the return of hockey, but don’t forget about some of the larger issues in the game.
The Canucks biggest advantage during the play-in
Have we under-discussed how large the disparity in net is between the Wild and the #Canucks?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) July 23, 2020
The Canucks were 7th in the NHL in scoring chance SV%. The Wild were last.

I actually do think this point has been under-discussed, and that’s probably because we’re entering a strange hockey version of The Twilight Zone where no one has played in months.
Monday Morning Quickie: Baseball’s predictable fucking mess
What a predictable fucking mess.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) July 27, 2020
The MLB's restart plan was an insult to the experts and health care professionals who have worked to eradicate the virus.

I got nothing but love for the NHL and their return-to-play plan, but the MLB’s plan couldn’t have been more half-baked if they tried.
