2005 draft

I feel like the Bruins/Habs rivalry is a case of “Anything you can do we can do better.”

The Habs got a goalie from the first round of the 2005 Entry draft.  So the Bruins traded for a goalie who was drafted in the first round of the 2005 entry draft. 

The Bruins had a horrible season where they missed the playoffs.  So the Habs had a horrible season where they missed the playoffs. 

The Habs were first in the Atlantic for a while only to fall out of a playoff spot by the end of the season.  So the Bruins held first in the Atlantic for a while only to fall out of a playoff spot by the end of the season.

The Bruins started cycling through backup goaltenders.  So the Habs started cycling through backup goaltenders.

The Habs had a French speaking coach so the Bruins got a French speaking coach. 

The Bruins had a “pest” of a forward.  So the Habs got a “pest” of a forward.

The Bruins traded one of their better, young defensemen.  So the Habs traded one of their best young defensemen. 

The Bruins have a defenseman who can shoot a puck at 108 mph.  So the Habs got a defenseman who can shoot the puck at 108 mph.

Hi hazel, i love your works and you seem to be well versed in the hockey fandom. I recently had ear surgery and the surgeon accidently caused some permanent nerve damage, so i havent had the best past couple of days. Any ideas for something funny or fluffy that could cheer me up?

Oh no! I’m so sorry that happened to you. I hope you are okay and wish you a speedy recovery <3<3 If you want mind-numbing fluff, my suggestion is Say Yes To Dress. A show that I am not addicted to. I’m not. 

If you’d like something more hockey inclined though, I put together this comprehensive video timeline of Sidney Crosby’s career, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and a little Evgeni Malkin thrown in for good measure. We’re talking hours of video here! Enjoy XDD

no one has mentioned the fact that jack does the awkward hands in pockets! sid!!

ahhh there are so many reasons why jack is sid! i mean, if sid’s life were a lot harder haha. in a public livestream, back when we had those, ngozi said her inspiration for jack was basically “what if i ruined sidney crosby’s life?” and that will never not be funny to me

there is a post in my 400+ drafts of detailing some of the things sid and jack have in common. if i can find it, i’ll link it here!

edit: found it!

i also just remembered this article from 2005 when crosby was drafted, and i’m pretty sure ngozi just like copied 80% of this verbatim for jack’s characterization haha
