How are you feeling about the Canucks after that Game 3 loss? I give my thoughts on that on The Quickie podcast, here on the Nucks Misconduct Network.

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

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

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

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

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.
