By the way, go subscribe to that network so Kyle Bhawan, Nick Bondi and myself can replenish the studio beers. The thirstier we are, the more deranged we become...
Perhaps that’s not a great selling point. Regardless, here’s a rundown on what I’ve released on The Quickie during the last seven days.
Canucks are a sexy underdog pick
#Canucks fans: Which do you prefer....being a sexy underdog pick, or having everyone hate us?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) August 11, 2020
I discuss the changing perception about the Canucks today on The Quickie podcast: https://t.co/Lw7CjpRTiL@kylebhawan plz don't slap me pic.twitter.com/qqEYL1tIPa
Perhaps believing in the Canucks wasn’t just jaded optimism...
Although they’ve been outplayed (more on that below), their best players have stepped up to carry this team to a 2-1 series lead.
Three Possible X-Factors for the Canucks
The #Canucks NEED a couple of their depth guys to step up if they're going to beat the Blues in this series.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) August 12, 2020
I can't tell you who that is, but I guarantee one of these guys will need to step up.
I give my three picks for X-factors on The Quickie: https://t.co/Ad4AovAOYu pic.twitter.com/SPReaWjehA
More like no factors...
There’s still a chance for these three guys to make an impact but right now, there’s been a whole lot of nothing from my possible Canucks X-Factor picks.
As for my guarantee? The thought was that the Canucks need depth guys to make an impact. That hasn’t been the case so far with the stars putting the team on their back, but standout depth performances will likely matter as the series progresses.
Much Love to the BC Buds
Troy Stecher isn't the only BC Bud who deserves some love after last night.— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) August 13, 2020
On today's episode of The Quickie, I talk about another BC Bud who was lights out in Game One of the playoffs.

Unlike my dud-like X-factor picks, the BC bud I gave a shout out to here has been killing it in these playoffs.
Nothing like a little BC bud bump.
Canucks are lucky to be up against St. Louis
Anyone else feel like the #Canucks are lucky to be up 2-1 in this series?— Trevor Beggs (@TrevBeggs) August 17, 2020
You should feel lucky. Despite some great individual performances, Vancouver hasn't been the better team in this series.

It’s not often that a team wins a best-of-seven series when they’ve been outplayed.
Trust that the Canucks are aware of that, and watch for them to pick-up their game at five-on-five.
They’ll have to if they want to defeat the defending champs.
