Hockey Hilarity: u good!!

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! Happy Friday everybody! It’s unfortunate that the National Hockey League is still in full-on lockout-mode, with no plans to meet, and an apparent moratorium on negotiations has been suggested or put into effect or whatever. Seriously I don’t even care anymore, just get the game back on the ice, alright? Anyway, I guess without the lockout, what you’re about to see wouldn’t have happened. It’s basically just a bunch of tweets from Scott Hartnell, which …

Hockey Hilarity: Hartnell Hogan Halloween

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! A few weeks ago, Scott Hartnell was somewhere and posted this picture from his Twitter account:   Let’s face it: pretty much any picture involving Scott Hartnell and Hulk Hogan is funny. Of course he also had a message for former Flyer James van Riemsdyk who responded thusly: Then, I happened upon this tweet from van Riemsdyk yesterday and I got a pretty good kick out of it: So today, I’ll leave …

Hockey Hilarity: Banned Beards

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! A little over a week ago, Claude Giroux sent out a tweet that he and Scott Hartnell would be growing beards during the lockout, presumably until the ban on National Hockey League hockey is lifted. This just further reaffirms the notion that hockey players will grow beards at any given point in time for any reason at all, and it’s awesome. Here’s what usually, but currently not, professional NHL players Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell, Mike Richards, …

CBA Chatter

Everything you wanted to know about the CBA but were afraid to ask Here are your updates from the past week on the ongoing collective bargaining agreement talks from around the Web. Lockout. It’s a dirty word to me, like “strike”, “New York Rangers”, and “country music”. We,the fans, always lose during any labor disagreement between the owners and the players. We can only hope that both sides suck it up, meet in the middle and get a deal done. As of this writing, there are no plans on the two sides meeting, but hopefully this weekend someone will reach out and …

Hockey Hilarity: Ginger… Snap!

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! Claude Giroux’s breakout season this year was rewarded by an overwhelming show of fan support as he was voted to be the cover athlete for EA Sports’ NHL ’13. It’s a pretty cool thing and cements the Hearst, Ontario native as one of the top young stars in the league. But what all that talent and all those votes can’t change is a single, undeniable truth: Claude Giroux is a ginger. It’s …
