the awkward moment when 2 rival hockey teams twitter accounts have a better friendship than I do
no matter where we are from
no matter which team we root for
i think we will all be happy if Columbus wins the Stanley Cup
“they fucking did it”
I WOULD CRY SO MUCH FOR THEM.

This is worth a read if only for Penner’s replies :D
By John Haven:
Now, as part of our preview of the re-match we played Word Association with six Los Angeles players, asking them to react to the names of four Chicago players. Like usual, these were all done one-on-one, so no player heard what the other guy said – which is interesting when you compare their answers…
Jonathan Quick – Good mitts
Rob Scuderi - Crafty
Mike Richards – Skilled
Drew Doughty – Silky smooth with the puck, you have to be aware of him out on the ice.
Jeff Carter – Skill one-on-one
Dustin Penner – Mullet
Quick – Good shot
Scuderi – Strong
Richards – Hard working
Doughty – Works hard, he’s a good leader and he’s going to battle down low for a spot on the ice.
Carter – Power
Penner – Serious
Quick – Solid D-man
Scuderi – Wiley
Richards – Smart
Doughty – Solid defenseman, good shot from the back end, good guy off the ice
Carter – Strong, solid
Penner – A sea brook
Quick – Solid goalie
Scuderi - Experienced
Richards - Big
Doughty – Different kind of goalie. Sometimes he’ll play great against us, sometimes he won’t. I think we’ve just got to get a lot of shots on him and he’ll let a few by.
Carter – Big, blocker, covers a lot of net
Penner – Marc
