Episode #220 – Loosening My Grip On Bobby Orr

Quinn Hughes makes a very impressive NHL debut for the Vancouver Canucks. Yes, it was only two games (and one against a Willie D-lead LA Kings), but it was an incredible showing and some flashes of his brilliance.

Ryan, Geeta and P Mac gather this week to discuss P Mac’s run in with the law (and a listener) and then they discuss Quinn Hughes’ first two NHL games.  The positives they took away from each game and how many puzzle pieces are missing from the Canucks’ rebuild.

They also discuss the Toronto media’s response to Quinn Hughes, trying to calm down the west coast hype while also suggesting that it’s just a matter of time before he signs with the Maple Leafs.

We head east to discuss another less than stellar week for the Leafs. With just three games left in the regular season, the clock is ticking for the Buds to figure out their game and gear up for another crack at the Boston Bruins. Is it time to slay the dragon? They give their predictions.

They also discuss the rags to riches story in St. Louis, from last place on January 3rd to a clinched playoff spot with games to spare and a white hot rookie goalie. The Blues could be dangerous come the first round.

Finally, they discuss Matthew Tkachuk tormenting Drew Doughty, Doughty’s outspoken comments on Keith’s son Matthew as well as Brent Burns. They also answer some great listener questions.
