CA Podcast: March Mailbag of Canucks Conversation ft. Harman Dayal

This month we are joined by Boy Genius to answer all of the Twitter questions that were sent in. Harman joins me to talk about everything a variety of topics such as: Quinn Hughes, the Canucks defencemen group, Artemi Panarin, our favourite food and even if pineapples belong on pizza.

Harman Dayal does some amazing work over at TheAthletic.com and has also recently launched a podcast of his own called “Game Theory with Harman Dayal”. You all know Harman from his amazing ability to tie together analytics with eye test to provide some of the best write up about the Vancouver Canucks over the past couple years.

At 18 years old, it’s amazing how polished Harman’s work already is, but when listening to this episode you can hear how he breaks down certain situations and is able to combine the “Stats Guy” with the “Hockey Guy” to look at things with a great point of view.

We go on answering questions for about an hour with some intros and outros mixed in, thanks for tuning into this months Mailbag episode and we will be back in April to wrap up the season.

    Another interview that entertained me.
    Harman Dayal is articulate and very hockey knowledgeable.
    My take on Benning’s draft of d-men is that he has chosen 3 prospects from every draft year but one.
    We see Brisebois having been developed at 21 now, Olli we will see shortly,Hughes has arrived with Woo and Rathbone coming.
    Tryamkin’s departure created a void but Benning has pulled at least one NHL D from every draft.
    The Gillis era gave the club Hutton.
    The last Canucks D man that was drafted by the .org (with exception of Luc Bourdon,of course) was Kevin Bieksa in 2001.
    If we include Tryamkin/Forsling and one of Gunnarson/Utunun/Brassard, Benning will have drafted eight NHL D men in five years.
