Trade Deadline came and went, and some trades were made. Sure, we as fans get upset, but sometimes we forget that these players lose their friends when they leave, and it can be hard on them. Here were some of the sweet tweets that came across on Wednesday. » Continue reading “They Said WHAT- We’ll Miss You Edition”
Hockey players are like a family. Sure, they fight on the ice and say some not so nice things to each other, but at the end of the day, they love each other, as is evident by these next couple of tweets.
The NHL is back! Yay! But with that, we’re probably going to see a lot less tweets by hockey players. Sad face. So here’s a bunch of tweets that made us laugh this week during training camp.
Hockey players are very attractive people, we all know that. However, there are a few things that make them even more attractive. A great win. A nicely fitting suit. Or maybe them with kids, as these next few tweets prove.
Picture it: Nashville, February 4, 2012. The Nashville Predators are visiting the St. Louis Blues. With about 6 and a half minutes left in the second, two heavyweight pugilists drop the gloves.
In one corner is Ryan Reaves at 6’1″ and 225 pounds. In the other is Brian “Big Ern” McGrattan standing at 6’4″ and 235 pounds. What we got was an absolutely gorgeous donnybrook.
This week we are focusing on problems caused by the lockout for our favorite NHL players. The best part? These “problems” come along with pictures too!
First up, we have Nashville’s cutest couple in Mike Fisher and Carrie Underwood. (Yes we realize Carrie Underwood isn’t an NHL player but work with us for a second.) A couple of weeks ago, Fisher attended the American Music Awards with his wife Underwood and got handed her purse as she went up on stage to accept an award. His look was priceless and led to this tweet from his wife:
Sunday was Remembrance Day in Canada and Veteran’s day in the US, where we remember the veterans past and present who fought and died, fighting for our freedom.
It’s no NHL hockey, but it has been announced that on Saturday, November 10th, a St. Louis Blues and Nashville Predators alumni game will be played to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. It will be taking place at the A-Game Sportsplex in Franklin, TN and tickets will be a suggested $5.00 donation at the door.
Some notable Blues alumni that will be participating are Kelly Chase, Tyson Nash, Bob Plager, Jeff Brown, and beloved TV analyst Darren Pang.
If you have nothing better to do that weekend, Franklin is just 5 hours and 40-some minutes from STL! (I google mapped it.) That sure sounds like a great hockey road trip to me!
Our Thursday morning features aren’t just about stunning good looks. you know. We can appreciate a hockey player with impressive skill and other qualities. This is our monthly salute to these men for those other qualities, even if they may not be the best looking in the bunch.
This week’s recipient is none other than alternate captain of the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, Anze Kopitar.
This week we take the time to salute some vintage hockey. More and more players we’ve seen for years seem to be hanging up the skates these days. We already celebrated Nicklas Lidstrom earlier this summer.
Today we award the Hawt Trophy to Teemu Selanne of the Anaheim Ducks. At the age of 42, he signed a 1 year contract to return to the NHL for one more season. Ageless and timeless, this honor is very well deserved.
