Elias Connsmythersson & Bitter-Ass Mustard Salt | Silky N’ Filthy Podcast

We go over the best and worst of the NHL playoffs on the latest episode of Silky N’ Filthy a.k.a...Elias Pettersson and Jon Marchessault.

Who is your pick for the Conn Smythe Trophy right now?

You know this podcast with the firm West Coast bias is going with one of the best U-22 players in NHL history.

Still, it’s nice to see Pettersson get some love from the rest of the NHL right now as well.

In all honesty, It’s hard to argue that Nathan Mackinnon isn’t the best player in the NHL playoffs so far. Forget Michael Hutchinson, it’s been Mackinnon who’s willed the Avalanche to Game 7 against Dallas.

If Pettersson can somehow propel a shittier Canucks to an improbable comeback against Vegas, then roll out the red carpet and yell out “Elias Connsmythersson.”

On the latest episode of Silky N’ Filthy (which is now the O.G. of Nucks Misconduct podcasts), Kyle and I go over the best and worst in recent days around the NHL.

That includes the tough questions like:

  • How cringey was Jason Kenney’s plea for visitors in Alberta prior to Game 5 between the Canucks and the Golden Knights?

Or, was it cringey at all?

  • Which will last longer: Bill Zito, who signed a five-year contract, as the Florida Panthers general manager or the sad-sack, money-losing Panthers actually sticking around in Florida?

Bring back the Nordiques.

  • Which B.C. bud are you loving the most in these playoffs: Shea Theodore, Mat Barzal or Jamie Benn?
  • Who are the most underrated performers from these NHL playoffs?
  • Why is Jon Marchessault so bitter?
