the greats: gordie howe, 1946–1971, 1973–1980

Spending twenty-six seasons in the NHL and six in the WHA, “Mr. Hockey” is a twenty-three time NHL All Star.  Howe held many of the sport’s scoring records until the 1990s, and continues to hold NHL records for most games and seasons played. Most famous for his scoring prowess, physical strength, and career longevity, he is the only player to have competed in the NHL in five different decades (1940s through 1980s). Although he only achieved the feat twice in his own career, Howe became the namesake of the “Gordie Howe hat trick” – a goal, an assist, and a fight in the same game. [x]

the greats: wayne gretzky, 1978–1999

The leading scorer in NHL history, Gretzky is the only NHL player to total over 200 points in one season – a feat he accomplished four times. The NHL retired his jersey number (99) league-wide, making him the only player to receive this honor. At the time of his retirement in 1999, he held 61 NHL records: 40 regular-season records, 15 playoff records, and six All-Star records. Nicknamed “The Great One,” he has been called “the greatest hockey player ever” by many sportswriters, players, and the NHL itself.

what if

Goon 3: The little guy

Staring Brendan Gallagher as, Brendan Gallagher.

Opening scene in trailer: team members being measured for NHL dot com, Gallagher records at 6′1″…hes standing on his toes.

Next trailer scene: Don Cherry (played by Louis CK) says “little guys don’t like the pushing and shoving”. Cut to scene of Gallagher tripping Chara and then net rushing, then punching a guy in the face. Ron Maclean will be played by Rowan Atkinson as he can never get a word out anyway. 

Scene 3: Members of other teams saying “i hate that kid, hes so annoying, such a little shit”. ( i will cast Pleky and Gorges in these roles because it will be funny).Cut to scene of Gally smiling like an idiot. 

Other Casting: 

Lars Eller (Played by Mads Eller), 

Carey Price (played by majestic bright light with voice over), 

Alex Galcheyuk (played by Alex Galchenyuk)

Ref (played by actual icon Vigo Mortensen) 

predictions 5/2 (pittsburgh vs washington)

-Nicklas Backstrom will set an NHL record by winning 105% of his face-offs. The 5% comes from winning a face-off he wasn’t even part of.
-In the second period, Trotz will shake up the line-up by revealing that Michael Latta has secretly been training to become a D-man. They’ll put him in Brooks Orpik’s spot as a trial for exactly one period.
-Noted Goon Andre Burakovsky will start a brawl with Kris Letang and immediately realize he’s out of his depth. Angry Dad Justin Williams will come to his aid. Tanger will take out six Caps single-handedly and still play a 30-minute game.
-Evgeni Malkin will score a goal and celly by slamming his body against the boards. The boards will shatter. Geno will proceed to crowd surf.
-The Pens will score an own-goal by accidentally bouncing a puck off Sidney Crosby’s butt.

Final Score: 7-6 Pens in OT. The Caps will pull Braden Holtby in the last two minutes of the game and keep him off. When asked about it, Barry Trotz will simply reply, “Go big or go home.”
