Surprise listener! Kate, Kyra, Riot & Laura are back to update you on: the status of our relationship with our abusive partner the NHL, round one playoff predictions, Riot discovers Tampa Bay is not in fact Thunder Bay and located in Florida, Evander Kane thinks he's more likeable than someone, Eichel & McDavid vow to break each others legs and future plans for a Kraken draft pod where Riot is feeling that Old Big Dick Energy.
This this special Farewell Grandpa episode Laura and Mike discuss: seriously he wasn't fired? Our thoughts on the Rutherford era, who will they hire to replace him and how bad could he be? On a bright note Pierre-Olivier Joseph is a ray of light who gives us serious Flower vibes.
This week Kate & Laura talk: The only think Tampa should have been drinking out of that cup is bleach, thoughts and prayers Tyson Barrie, Skinner's got his Staal back, sounds like Eichel's getting a Gucci purse, Holtby is going to be soooo high in VanCity and we haven't broken up with hockey ... but we're gonna need a break.
This week Riot & Laura discuss: You guys, life in the bubble is like... hard, deepfake Sid is our favourite Sid, Stamkos so fragile, Hornqvist just got traded off the Titanic, Riot and Brent Burns would make for one hell of a good time, just because all goalies can twerk doesn't mean they should, who we would draft to our Kraken.
Kate and Kyra are back, dazed, confused and trying to catch up on what happened to get the Stars to the stanley cup finals. What happened to Ben Bishop? Where's Steven Stamkos? Does anyone care about the Lightning when even the Canes are stanning the Stars? When did Sidney Crosby get another Emmy? Could Vegas even consider trading Flower? Would you be okay if someone proposed to you in a hat? Did Jamie Benn start eating out and reverse the karma for the whole team?!
This week Laura & Kate talk: who's doesn't want to punch your face Logan Couture, I am Alan Vigneault I don't KNOW things, NHL's delayed boycott brings us lots of rage and a bit of hope, our fav movies and what useless stuff we've been buying online.
This week Laura and Amanda talk: Farewell Mike Milbury: the NHL old boys loses one of it’s oldest & most useless boys, how can men be expected to work when there are boobies everywhere, no qualifications- can I interest you in a job as an NHL GM?, Flower’s agent is like really extra, we review round 1 of the playoffs and tell you who we’re rooting for in round 2.
This week Laura & Amanda talk: maybe it's time to break up with your NHL boyfriend, how dare they disrespect Sidney Crosby on his birthday, the pens are bad and there's not enough guacamole in the world to fix that, the Leafs win game 4 but this better not be another case of premature leafs-elation, Amanda's hatred for the Flyers is bone marrow deep and ... spiders.
Welcome back to Westimated listener! Join Kate and Kyra as they talk about what they’ve been up to in the hiatus, what they think of bubble playoffs, #westandwith, Matt Dumba, Matthew Tkachuk, what happened to Pittsburgh Vs Montreal in game one, explain which player is what piece of clothing and more.
The whole Msunderestimated crew is back to discuss: Does no playoff dress code mean Tyler Seguin shows up in a towel?, Hub Marriott is clearly THE place to be quarantined, our hub reality show would be Players Trapped In An Elevator and finally Sid, did you know that you're toxic?
This week Kate & Laura (with guest appearance by Kyra)talk: Akim Aliu finally gets the thanks he deserves, players finally talk about race - turns out some of them have hidden depth, NHL is going to address racism by committee, NHL Oscars and new pool: how long into the playoffs does Sidney Crosby get the Rona?
This week Kyra & Laura discuss: our quarantine rituals, we pick who we are rooting against in the NHL’s new Playoff brackets, holding Sidney Crosby to a different standard is not fair while also being totally and completely fair, we fix hockey AGAIN, and Cale Makar’s sweet innocence is helping us through these tough times.
On this very slow NHL news week Laura & Amanda discuss: everything pre Corona will now be known as the Before Times, unexpectedly - a hockey player makes a good point, Sid has a chia pet on his face and we try and fail to make sense of the conflict between the PWHPA and the NWHL.
This week join Kate and Kyra as they break down Brendan Leipsic’s EPIC FAILURE at being a decent human being, and then feel really down about it and decide to play a game to find the hockey hero we need in these desperate times. CW: discussion of fatphobia, misogyny, discrimination, toxic masculinity, & drug use
In the longest MsUnderestimated episode ever Riot and Laura discuss: do we really need to encourage EVERYONE to survive this pandemic, Sorry…but we think Justin Bieber buying the Senators is only the best idea ever, which player comes to mind when you hear the word dopey and yes Sidney Crosby and Emilia Clarke should have a quarantine baby.
This week join Kate and Kyra as they discuss Sidney Crosby’s interior design choices, Brandon Prust’s extremely White Person twitter meltdown, If any players have gained any perspective on their lives since corona has done it to us all, a heart warming tale of LGBT college hockey, what a sugar glider is, what our hype songs are, which players we’d pick as the devil and angel on our shoulders and who we are rooting for in hockey Drag Race.
This week Amanda and Laura discuss NHL quarantine content: I don’t know that a Gretzky vs Ovechkin Chel battle was the hip NHL content anyone was waiting for, I guess celebrity crushes are just too much personality for puck personality? PK Subban’s triva game show is not what we were expecting and finally Auston Matthews breaking down hockey movies for GQ is … kind of awesome.
This week on our quaran-pod Kyra and Kate talk about some sad news in the NHL, how we’re coping, what we’re watching, eating, and doing day to day, our tinder swipe criteria, if Kyra got animal crossing, what our favourite Easter Candy is, and what the first thing is that we’d do if quarantine ended tomorrow.
This week Mike and Laura discuss: is it right to blame the NHL for things that aren’t their fault – we vote yes, Crosby wanders off during the Players Q&A, the players clearly do not enjoy being polled and could the NHL pull off an NBA level event - not without Green Day.
This week join Kate and Kyra with special Guest Shanelle (our roommate) for an episode that talks about what the NHL is up to, what we’re up to, and answers some burning questions we’re having about hockey players, celebrities, the olympics, who David Copperfield is, and the amish.
This week all the hosts gather to discuss life during Corona and: is hockey the hockey season dunzo? What happens next year? Why would we listen to the NHL re hygiene when their cleanest player's jock strap looks like it could be patient zero? Also, book recommendations, which are the best logos and we sort players into Fae, Vampires & Werewolves. Finally, Riot uncovers a very unsettling player Flowers in the Attic situation.
Join Kate and Kyra (and bonus our roommate Shanelle!) for a socially distant WESTimated this week.

What is Mitch Marner hiding in his mouth? What’s happening to Tyson Barrie? And is swearing the secret to Johnny Gaudreau’s eternal youth…

This week Amanda joins Laura to discuss the newest coach firing, the NHL's 4 rules for protecting their ass(es)ets, Sidney Crosby's actions speak volumes ... but hey you know what else does? WORDS!

This week Riot & Laura rank the players Halloween costumes on effort, creativity, style and how well they filled out the pants. We also discuss why Swedes don’t know how to candy, nothing is scarier than Don Cherry answering question, Tkachuk’s goal of the year and we forgot to answer the “ok Boomer” question because it took too long for Riot to explain Vine’s to Laura.
This week Kate and Kyra talk about the Heritage classic and how it was apparently not advertised at all, Sidney Crosby taking a puck to the face, which players we’d most like to have propose to us, which players we’d want to listen to do a podcast and about what, and many more of your asks!
