I keep putting off the NHL Awards post, and I apologize. But today was too crazy not to talk about it. So first, I just want to quickly talk about some cute guys that were drafted today, because, talking about cute hockey players and posting their pictures is my specialty (;
First on the list…Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
I really wish I could find their pictures in their suits, but I can’t since they haven’t been posted yet, so, oh well. I love Edmonton now. Their team is really young, and really really cute. He’s a great fit there.
Gabriel Landeskog oh my goodness. You. Are. So. Swedish. And. Adorable. I really just want to collect all of the Swedes that play hockey. With the exception of the Sedin brothers. But seriously, hockey playing Swedes are so attractive! And Gabriel went to the Avalanche, whom I already like because of Matt Duchene. That’s so much better than him going to like, the Penguins.
This isn’t the best picture, but it’s Ryan Murphy. He went to the Hurricanes, so if/when he plays on the team us Caps fans will see a lot of him!
And now, my favorite NHL prospect of the year. The absolutely adorable…
TYLER BIGGS ❤ Too cute for words. I may have to root for the Leafs whenever he plays for them/go to a Caps and Leafs game.
Okay. Enough of that. Major things to discuss.
1. Washington didn’t pick in the first round. Why? WE GOT TROY BROUWER FROM CHICAGO! This (Chicago trading him) would’ve made me sad if he went to another team, but he’s a CAPITAL! You don’t understand, I LOVE Troy. He’s funny, he has Stanley Cup Playoff experience, he’s a big hitter, a good leader, and he can score some goals. I think he’s just what we need.
2. Everyone is freaking out that now the Caps will have to get rid of Brooks. I honestly have no idea what’s going to happen with him. All I know is that if for some reason he can no longer be a Capital, I will seriously cry. Like, actual tears. I love that Canadian. What would Mike do without him?!
3. BRIAN FUCKING CAMPBELL AGREED TO GO TO THE PANTHERS. WHAT SOUPY?!?!?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! I guess the only “good” thing out of this is that perhaps I’ll be able to see more of him. That’s really sad though. Soupy + Joey the Junior Reporter = best thing ever. The Hawks will miss you, Brian. )’:
4. Apparently, it’s pretty definite that Max Talbot will not be a Penguin next season. Now the question is, where will he go? What if he became a Cap? AND WHAT IF BROOKS BECAME A PENGUIN?! I’d still love Brooksy. He’s just so lovable.
I guess that’s it for the day. It’ll be interesting to see how tomorrow unfolds. But now I need sleep. Goodnight hockey fans.
