Bigger, Stronger, Faster: Is it Necessarily Better?

I’ve been known to berate the programming of Canucks TV (and corresponding $12.95-a-game fee to watch it) but they did come up with something interesting recently—a new round-table show featuring local media discussing a variety of current issues in the NHL.

The video below is from last week sometime I believe, but I hadn’t had a chance to watch it till last night. Still, I thought it was an interesting (and sort of odd) question to bring up, so I decided to throw it on Youtube in case others were interested.

The panel features Vancouver broadcaster Barry MacDonald, former NHLer Cliff Ronning, writers Ed Willes of The Province and Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun.

Barry MacDonald opens the conversation with his version of SNL’s old Coffee Talk sketch.  To paraphrase: “Is bigger, stronger, faster necessarily better? Discuss.”
