Warren Foegele handling the puck on that potential 2-on-1 like Jared Fogle.

I don’t like Jake DeBrusk as a player but I keep thinking of that Athletic article that was essentially “Everybody hazes him constantly, classic!” and I feel kind of bad for him.

Last September, even though DeBrusk reported to Boston with a stringy, free-flowing mullet, it still looked like he was losing his hair.
Someone was clearly trying to endear himself to Bruce Cassidy.

DeBrusk also spent three seasons in the WHL. Throughout hockey, the common crack is that when it comes to mental acuity, graduates of the Dub, as it’s called, have a ways to go to catch up to those of the OHL and QMJHL, to say nothing of NCAA alums.
If Jaxxon can eat 12 Kraft Dinners in one week and Braxxon can eat 54 Kraft Dinners in one month, how many Kraft Dinners can Klaxxon eat in one year?

Still can't believe that the Canes got Teravainen just for taking Bickell's contract.
Brady Skjei also did a good job of getting elbowed in the face, so credit where credit is due.

Andrei and Evgeni should do a hilarious sibling swap for the rest of their careers and see if anyone notices

"OHL teams frequently fit upwards of 12 players in the bathrooms of their team buses, while our WHL teams struggle to fit more than 6."

I'm trying to decide if I have a rooting interest in the Calgary/Dallas series.

"Andrei, what's that?"

"Oh it's nothing Coach"

Is Evgeni essentially a Wizard of Oz character?

Calgary does have Jay Feaster Certified, generational talent, Mark Jankowski.

And Corey Perry is on the Stars. I guess Calgary, it is.
