Wait what's the difference between the fastest skater comp now and what it used to be?


Dylan Larkin exists.


#2650423 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

NHL is ran by a bunch of morons and has ruined the game I love.




#2650417 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

I've seen this posted in the All-Star thread butI think it deserves it's own thread because the ASG thread will be full with ASG talk saturday.

Highlight

 

But at the same time: this isn’t Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I’m not some random person off the street, and I didn’t win a golden ticket to “play hockey with the stars.” I won an internet fan vote, sure. And at some point, without question, it was a joke. It might even finish as a joke. But it didn’t start as one. It started with a very small pool, out of a very small pool, out of the very, very smallest pool of hockey players in the world: NHLers. That was the vote. A fan vote, an internet vote — but a vote from among the 700 or so best hockey players in North American professional sports.

And I’m one of them.

If the league thought this was an embarrassment, pretty much all of the players I’ve encountered have thought otherwise. I’ve gotten texts from so many guys saying the same thing: “You should go.”

And that didn’t happen because of the internet. I busted my ass to be one of them. I’ve skated every day since I was three years old to be one of them. I’ve persevered through Juniors roster cuts, Alaskan bus rides, Advanced Dynamics exams, and — yes — fights, to be one of them.

But I’m one of them. And that means a lot to me.

It means a lot to my family.

 

So when someone from the NHL calls me and says, “Do you think this is something your kids would be proud of?”

… That’s when they lost me.

 

 

Goes to show you what a bunch of mean spirited, disgusting idiots the NHL has in their front-office and what a SOB Don Maloney was in that whole situation. I hope the players help him score some goals as a big F U to the NHL.

 

I'm also loving the phrase " a guy like me" - whatever people may think about John Scott and his role the fact is, he is one of 700 NHL players, period. If some suit wearing idiot would have told me on how to be a dad and what MY kids might be proud of I don't know if I would have responded as friendly as Scott did, so huge kudos to him.

 

Smart and great guy NHL needs more John Scotts and less idiots in their headquarter.

I don't know if he picks the designs, or if he approaches Bishop with some ideas, or if all the credit resides in the artist who painted them, but... Jimmy has always excelled with the design of his masks.

#2650028 Yzerman Reportedly Playing in Alumni Game Against Colorado

Posted by kickazz on 25 January 2016 - 06:35 PM

I'm not too shocked. The Colorado-wings rivalry means more to Stevie than the Leafs-Wings rivalry.

Showing up for that, I figured he would come to this too.

Posted on Channel 7's (WXYZ Detroit) siteand Facebook page.  Is anyone besides me shocked?

 

In not-so-shocking news, McCarty is also scheduled to play.

In the absence of BoS, I hereby declare Loo the official end of game butt patter.

I hate to gloat, but my predictions are never right, I need my moment in the sun. Score one for the hockey gods!

oh come on! I expect some sort of conspiracy theory behind this. haha. Loved the GDT btw I think having our last four C's up there, 3 of them in b/w is visually stunning. nice touch.

hey man, Larkin is fast and has good hands too. 

it's apples and oranges really, we can't compare Helm to Larkin to be fair, or kind hearted more likely, to Helm
