I used to work at Pro Hockey Life and one time I was helping this guy with skates but he was in a really bad mood and ended up leaving and getting nothing then 10minutes later he came back in with Tim Hortons to say sorry if he was rude he just needed his Timmys and I felt so Canadian
so apparently the nhl media site went down or something today, and didn’t require the usual log in. of course reddit figured this out (as per usual when something happens) and before it went back up someone downloaded all the media guides for each team and uploaded them here for everyone
basically they have all the information for each team sorted out, so they can work as great primers for people wanting to get into hockey. we’re talking front office, coaches, players, team history, the whole she-bang.
EDIT: also includes cool things like player milestones, team records, franchise records, how the team has stacked up against all other teams, a summary of every game in the last season, and general info. some pretty cool stuff all in one spot.
All my life, I seem to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. My grandpa, Stanley Yelnats the second, says it’s all because of this 150 year old curse. Now, I don’t really believe in the family curse but when things go wrong, it kinda helps if you can blame it on something. And for me, things went wrong a lot. Grandpa says our destiny is sealed.

"You’re born with a ton of fucks to give, so you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give fucks about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers’ opinions. You give way too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. Then, as you get older, you have maybe 10 fucks per month, so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to family and career, but there aren’t enough fucks to give to the newest fads. Oh, someone at work has something they need my help with that’s outside my job title? I’ll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. Then, as you get even older, you’re down to 1-2 fucks per month, and those fucks are pretty damn precious. You give them to your family and your hobbies and your job, and that’s kinda it. It’s not your fault – fucks expire too quickly. I would’ve liked to save my fucks from when I was younger but I can’t. Then, you hit fuck insolvency. You’re getting like 1 fuck a year, and you have to make it last. So you go without, and even previously fuck-worthy things, you just can’t give a fuck. Some people run out really quickly, Some people have a fuck trust fund that pays out a decent amount even into old age. But at some point, the fuck faucet runs completely dry and you’re out of fucks to give. It’s just basic Fuckonomics."

I’ve never read anything more fucking true in my whole fucking life.
Well if this isn’t fucking meta…I don’t know what is.

"Sidney Crosby does not just kill a conversation. He interrupts things mid-sentence, flips over the table, cuts all power to the room and leaves you as confused as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs attempting a breakout."
