Seriously, has this point been under-discussed?

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

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

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.

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

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.
