Manscaping in Montreal | Silky N’ Filthy Podcast

Being aerodynamic is a cheat code.

There’s no reason to be upset about the Montreal Canadiens thumping the Canucks through three games last week.

In fact, you could argue that their aerodynamic abilities on the ice are downright unfair.

Prior to the season, the Canadiens announced their partnership with Manscaped. Now, they look like one of the fastest teams on the ice.

Is this a coincidence, or is a team with superbly-manscaped bodies just flying around the ice that much faster?

Now, this theory falls apart when you learn that the Ottawa Senators are also sponsored by Manscaped. However, they also employ Erik Gudbranson, who probably grows hair faster than the Senators give up goals.

Also on the latest episode of Silky N’ Filthy, Kyle Bhawan and I talk about...

  • Are the Canucks actually Canada’s second-worst team?
  • Who won the Pierre-Luc Dubois vs. Patrik Laine trade?
  • Would the NHL benefit from division realignment?

The last point refers to an article written recently by The Athletic Ottawa’s Ian Mendes, who proposed that the NHL realign their divisions NFL style with eight divisions of four teams.

That would put the Canucks in a division with the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames, and Seattle Kraken.

One of us loves this proposal, and the other isn’t on board.
