  • Reporter: Connor-
  • Leon: *glaring* -is the greatest player in the world. He's the best captain ever and we have the best chemistry. Our chemistry is amazing. Also we're really good friends off the ice, for sure. I'd make a joke about playing against him except it hurts too much. Hey, do you think Connor would consider German citizenship or playing for Team Europe? He's just so fast man, I'm just trying to keep up and be the best player I can be so I can be better for Connor because he deserves everything in the world, you know?
  • ____
  • Reporter: Leon-
  • Connor: *beaming* -is so big and strong, have you seen him? He's so big and has such a presence on the ice, throwing that big body of his around. He's the most underrated player in the world ever. Make sure you mention that okay? He's so good and strong, you know? He's unbelievable. He doesn't get enough credit. I should probably talk more about him so people know how awesome he is. I love Leon. There is literally nothing I don't love about that guy.

yes, i am aware that everyone already knows that tyler seguin is hot, but TYLER SEGUIN IS HOT

yes he really, really is. i mean, sometimes he says things like “i fell in love with the team [the entire dallas stars ‘17-’18 roster]” and he’s a known bieber fan but that’s not why we’re here, so let’s just take a moment.

Who's the most underrated character that must be given an appreciation?

tbh I think Tanaka is super underrated! I think people can’t really look past his crazy exterior to see him as anything more than comic relief. But he’s so much MORE! And I DEFINITELY think he’s super underrated as a player too. I would almost argue that (AND DON’T KILL ME) he deserves the title of ace right now as it stands? Sorry Asahi. PLEASE PUT AWAY YOUR TORCHES, I KNOW. Tanaka scores so many points, and it almost seems like he rarely gets blocked. He’s a super well-rounded player and he doesn’t get enough credit for it. He’s also best senpai™!!! I LOV TANAKA.

Max Pacioretty.

ALRIGHT so here we go my hand has been forced and ill probably sound extra but I’m way past that at this point. These are some essentials you need to know about Max Pacioretty and why I think he’s one of the most underrated players. 

1.) I just want to point out, right off the bat, that this beautiful man plays out his heart and fucking soul. Sometimes, he has his moments. Sometimes, he isn’t 100% and that’s okay, because he still plays with all that he is able to give. You know who ELSE has their moments? Every single player in the NHL. Including Carey Price and including Sidney Crosby idk just name any NHL star’s name and they have most DEFINITELY had their low moments. 

Can we also remember that Max Pacioretty played with a broken ankle, and that he scored a goal and got two assists in a game while he was sick with the flu? So for all the people claiming he didn’t try his best throughout the 2016-17 season, please rethink this. 

2.) A lot of people forget that Max Pacioretty was nearly paralyzed from the neck down. Y’all know who Travis Roy is? Long story short, Travis Roy was basically a hockey prodigy and got to play on varsity his freshman year at BU. However, he only got to play for eleven seconds before he went to check someone and fell head first into the boards and broke his C4 and C5 vertebrae. Travis Roy is fascinating and I actually had the pleasure of meeting him earlier this year, so if the spirit moves you, you should check out his story.

Why is that important? Well, because of that injury, Roy was paralyzed from the neck down. 

You know what happened to Max Pacioretty? He received an illegal check that broke his C4. People who survive spinal cord injuries above this level need ventilators or machines to breathe. Yet here he is, six years later, and now the fucking captain. Idk about y'all, but that’s so amazing to me. Sometimes I wonder what health issues he still deals with today, but that’s a mystery.

I feel like surviving and recovering from an injury like that MIGHT leave a guy a bit traumatized? But that’s just me. I’ve never had someone nearly snap my neck so I can’t speak from experience. I certainly would be scared shitless to play the dangerous sport of hockey again.

3.) This gift to humanity scored his first NHL goal on his first NHL shot when he was brought up from the AHL. They sent him back down after that, but when he was brought up for a second time, he ended up being the highest goal scorer that season. When he returned from this injury? He had a 33 goal season and won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy

“’If I walk by him, I’d say hello,“ said Pacioretty of the guy who broke his neck. "It’s not awkward. It’s all part of the sport.’”

I’m a bit petty and hold grudges, so I personally wouldn’t have forgiven him. This isn’t a hate post towards the guy, which is why I didn’t name him.

His teammates stick up for him no matter what, and that’s when you know you’re a good and respected captain. Your teammates want to defend you and value your reputation. Let’s not forget the time that rumor was passed around that Therrien claimed Max Pacioretty was the worst captain in Habs history, and Nathan Beaulieu came quick to his defense with:


So please don’t tell me that Max Pacioretty isn’t allowed to have his moments. Or that he single handedly let the Habs down this season. Or that he doesn’t deserve to be the captain.

Please stop using Max Pacioretty as a scapegoat for everything that goes wrong in the Montreal Canadiens season. 

If anyone has more to add to this list, please do. 

ASK ME :) - I’m bored lol

Favorite Unsung Heroes of Football  ANDREA Barzagli 

Barzagli is just unspectacularly brilliant in every sense of the term. A lot of the time he makes things look easy, other times he comes sliding in out of nowhere to stop the opponents’ attack down the right wing. Barzagli is one of the most consistent defenders in the business. While some players at the same position get more attention for whatever reason, Barzagli just keeps truckin’ along, playing fantastic football basically every time he steps on the field. Sometimes when players hit their 30s, they suddenly start to regress and show their age. In Barzagli’s case, he has only gotten better as he enters his mid-30s. Not exactly how you draw it up, but you won’t find me complaining about Barzagli suddenly finding the fountain of youth in a Juventus jersey..”

Anyone else notice Alex tapping Steph’s head after Ubogagu scored and then Steph doing the same thing after the other goal?
