NHL Media Tour Reception

8 Sep

It’s obviously a tough time for everyone in the wake of the KHL plane crash, and I think NHL.com did a nice job of highlighting last night’s Media Tour reception with a really toned-down video [link].  Kudos to them.

Squishy: "So they pose like this...." Shane: "No, the mannequin's hand is higher."

There are quick shots of Kaner, Ovi, Shane Doan, Squishy, Corey Perry, Logan Couture (short hair!) and his girlfriend and even Intern Jeff Skinner, who took our advice and wore short sleeves to show off his manly arms.

As usual though, Steven hogs the spotlight.  The guy can’t help it!  his hair is too long, he needs Gator to iron his shirt and he doesn’t even do anything in this video, but if you can resist him you might be a robot.

The best thing about this, of course, is that it means October is right around the corner.

    “Steven Stamkos eats a mini-beef wellington! News at 11!”

    Given the overwhelming concentration of hockey hotness at this event, I will forgive you for overlooking the fact that Tazer seems to have forgotten some of his buttons. And has forgotten to eat. I still die. http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lr6v3gBHzC1qzw3v6o1_500.jpg

    Also – WUYS needs to start paying Intern Jeff Skinner so he can get a new shirt. That one has made the rounds. Or maybe it’s just that he is distraught because I broke up with him after prom and is too sad to go to the mall 😛

      1) I have no problem with this number of buttons. (Cue my Pussycat Dolls karaoke routine.)

      2) Someone shorter than Patrick Kane FTW! Oh hey, it’s that gut from Entourage. Sir I do not know your name.

      3) Kaner thought about buying the Mike Green shoes. I feel it.

    This media tour kills me. All I can think about was how my husband and I had planned to go to the US Open this year, then nixed it to go to Chicago in November. I COULD HAVE BEEN IN NYC THIS WEEK. And ditched my husband to pretend to be a Versace employee, and then snuck into the NHL Store event tomorrow. There would have been a lot of questions, but worth it.

    PS – Chuck, all I can think when I watch that video is: “Steven Stamkos eats a mini-beef wellington! News at 11!”
    PPS – JToews needs to button his shirt. One too open.
