Brooks Laich: ‘I really, honestly don’t care about the Ovechkin-Crosby rivalry’
Usually you suck, NHL.com headline writer guy, but sometimes you freaking nail it.
Remember that time Ryan Miller and the Sabres were in the same hotel as a furry convention??
From the Anaheim Ducks Blog on January 25, 2010
Okay, but here’s where it gets weird: Someone snapped this photo on the right and posted it on Twitter, a shot of Sabres goalie Ryan Miller posing with two furries in Ducks and Sharks jerseys. And here’s where it gets REALLY weird: The Ducks jersey on the left? It’s No. 18, which was last worn by Drew Miller, RYAN MILLER’S BROTHER.
You can’t make this stuff up. Not only does this person own a Drew Miller jersey, but they somehow run into his brother while wearing one over a fox costume? I can’t wrap my brain around how this possibly could have happened.
If they knew this worked out well together, why did Pittsburgh have to make the Furries postpone their convention during Draft Weekend??
I have to give us a failing grade, which is rating harshly. … But we’re past now saying making the playoffs makes for a successful season, and we want to win a Stanley Cup and we haven’t done that. — Ted Leonsis on the Capitals
The fact of the matter is I think this game is safer with fighting in it. —
(Please note that he’s not saying the fact is that the game is safer with fighting. He’s saying the fact is that he THINKS the game is safe with fighting.)
