I cannot tell you how pleased I am to have this. My soul has PINED for this. This is likely the world’s only Lok Durd figure!

My friend is a superb customiser, and about four years ago, worked on a series of TCW characters. He was recently cleaning out his collection, and selling off a bunch of figures, and offered this one to me at mates rates.

Q: You’re a fan, you’re coming in to watch this. Who’s the one player in the entire tournament you’d be interested in seeing?

Some guy: You can say yourself.

Rask: No, you know, I’m gonna say Brad Marchand. 

Q: How do you think he’s gonna do in a tournament like this, given his ability to agitate the guys?

Rask: I don’t think he’s gonna agitate all that much. I saw he plays on the first line with Bergy and Sidney Crosby, so just keep your stick on the ice and score some points, buddy. That’s what I’d say.

Q: He comes down on you - there’s no way you gonna let him score?

Rask: I sure hope not.

Q: Which is the one player you wanna see in this tournament? I asked Tuukka, and he said you, and he had some interesting advice for you playing alongside Bergeron and Crosby.

Marchand: Was it to give them the puck?
