HOT TAKE CITY PT. 7
Wow, what a week in the hockey world. Just as it seems like the Ducks are going to prevail over the young oilers the oilers say absolutely fucking not and just kick the living shit out of Anaheim. Long sleeve 50in07 shirt drops in two weeks and the blue tee drops in a week. Check the shit out, let me know what you think. Anyways, I'm so fucking sick of the goalie interference bullshit so I'm glad there's some games that have 6-7-8 goals in them. The best part is easily seeing the orange crush crowd go fucking ape shit when the puck gets tucked. The oilers are going to be one tough team to beat in the next couple of years. I wonder if Gary Bettman is going to get his dick out of Chicago Blackhawks and switch over to Edmonton. Probably not, because he's probably the worst at marketing the game, ever.
I don't understand the NHL. I'm not a lifeguard and I don't know what goes on behind the scenes, but why the fuck do they keep pushing the same teams over and over when it comes to exposure. Learn to market. You don't keep pushing the same teams to get popular, the way you expand is you work on pushing bad markets to improve to GROW the game. The NHL needs to learn this. Or, maybe I'm just a fucking idiot that doesn't know what I'm talking about. I just feel like there needs to be more effort to make bad markets good ones. If not, then how will the game ever grow the way the NHL wants it to grow? The NHL won't grow no matter how many times you put the fucking blackhawks on an outdoor rink. Rant Over: Hot take:
WASHINGTON/PITTSBURGH: Strap on your dildo because this is gong to be a pivotal game for Washington's franchise, literally. I was actually shit faced all of saturday so I didn't get to see the caps win, but I'm sure it took a bit of pressure off. Maybe not, because I feel that pittsburgh is going to absolutely shut the door tonight. First of all, how the FUCK is crosby back from a "concussion" ..I'm gonna call bullshit on this one and say he didn't really have one. Is that possible? You can't, no matter what, recover from a concussion in 48 hours. I refuse to believe that. I can't even recover from a crown royal/ginger ale hangover in 48 hours. I don't know what is going on, but I hope Crosby's health isn't going to be jeopardized in the long run because of this shit. I think the captaincy of the Capitals is a huge question mark. This is definitely the last straw for the core of this team. It has to be. I'm pretty sure if Ovechkin and the capitals don't somehow get out of this one, there's going to be major changes. I'm probably going to show up in Virginia or wherever the fuck their complex is and just sign up to try out and I'm not joking. My hot take for today is...CAPS PACK THEIR SHIT.
