hockey player: well ya'know, i'a think that the salad is a good choice and uh I think that the chef has just gotta make a real good effort and uh I uh trust the famer, he’s been doin’ a fine job growing the lettuce ya know he’s got a real good thing goin,he really cares and I uh just gotta do my part and uh finish that salad.
The benches in hockey dressing rooms are built so that your feet rest on the floor with your skates on which means that there are pictures of Large Professional Athletes with sock feet dangling off of the bench and I think that is a beautiful thing.
The best parts of Ovi being mic’d for the All Star Skills:
Brian Boyle clearly trying to diplomatically figure out if Ovi’s had a kid when Ovi brought out Jonas.
Ovi telling Jonas to “pass it to Sid!” and Crosby bemusedly passing it back.
Ovi giggling and telling Hank and Greenie that he’s nervous, and comparing it to a playoffs game.
PK telling Ovi everyone broke 100mph at the Nashville competition because they let them skate in on the red line, then asking if Trotz was a good coach, Ovi saying yes, then general mutual encouragement of each other.
Ovi reacting to his first shot, saying “Holts, I’m shaking!” and Holtby being utterly unimpressed.
PK giving Ovi the mock “what for?” gesture after he won.
Ovi responding to Tarik El-Bashir asking if he took his second shot to see if he could break 100: “Yeah, why not? And I did.”
(* = my criterions while making this were: birthplaces (not hometowns); air distance (e.g.: London is airly closer to Detroit than to Toronto) and I didn’t involve players who were born too far away from any NHL city; amount of players (e.g.: there are many players born in New York City area, but not enough to make a whole team)
also: I made this with help of this map which is also mine, so all errors are probably mine)
so I made this for fun so I could see how NHL would look like and even though it’s not 100% accurate, I think it’s done its work
