In case you missed it, I had the privilege of joining Jeff Marek (@JeffMarek) and Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) on their podcast Thursday afternoon.
Go to the 51min mark to hear us chat about hockey, Adam Henrique’s creeper moustache, DPenner’s amazing beard, and boobs.
Hopefully this turns in a regular thing for WUYS. We love sharing our particular brand of whimsy with the hockey world.
Unfortunately, Pants couldn’t join us this time, but next time…gurrrrrl it is on.
If you go seven months without seeing an acquaintance, you might greet them with, “Wow, you look so….” The word the Devils and Kings need here is hairy. These teams last met in October and it’s a wonder if they’d recognize each other now without the numbers on their backs.
Each team has been presented with one trophy this year. Both captains opted not to touch their Conference chalices, but only one will lift the Cup in 2012.
Will a playoff beard be the first to kiss Lord Stanley’s prize, or find itself waiting to see whom the captain hands the Cup to next?

Captain Brown vs. Captain Parise.
The letter “A” is awarded only to the best. Students with the highest scores. Products with the best quality. Restaurants with the cleanest kitchens. We all know Alvin didn’t lead The Chimpmunks just because he had the best dance moves. The very presence of an “A” denotes greatness.
We love (OK, worship) our NHL team captains. But in life, it’s rare that a “C” should outrank an “A.”
To keep the status quo, this week we salute one NHL alternate captain from each remaining playoff team. These men are first in our books — leading by example on and off the ice, above and below the chinstrap.
Here are our top marks for how “A” beard should look.

Matt Greene’s bears. So blond, it glows.

In this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, the fates select which beards will have a chance to realize their true potential.
Five teams remain. Five beards (OK, six) have emerged as top contenders for Beard of the Year.
None of these teams made it past the second round last season, so the promise of greater bearded glory shines bright. Some faces are familiar, some are new. All are hairy.

Back when we listed the most common playoff beard types, you may recall we included the “Maybe Don’t” category. This is the circular file where well-intentioned and enthusiastic efforts are stored until perfect attendance awards are handed out. ‘A’ for effort and all that. Since then we have admired the burgeoning beauty of many beards.
Now that the playoffs are three weeks old, it’s time to show cards on a few manscapes that are struggling to make the cut.

Ready to lead a cavlary charge.
Check us out every Thursday through out the NHL Playoffs on Puck Daddy!
April 19, 2012 –This early in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, beards are like second-round berths and regulation wins – shiny hopes and dreams. It’s barely Week 2 and, at best, most players are sporting only peach fuzz or the beard equivalent of an off-season weekend bender.
Some have already grown all they’ll ever manage.
But a few prime specimens have begun to emerge as top contenders for the coveted Beard of the Year award. Can they go all the way? Or will they be forced, defeated and follicle-free, to the back nine before they have reached their full potential?

EXCITING NEWS EVERYONE!
Pants and I are proud to announce that during the playoffs, WUYS will be writing a weekly post on Puck Daddy!!
So much of this right now.
It’ll be about the best (and worst) playoff beards, which is one of the things we simply adore about hockey players.
I heart beards so much that I have been know to accost totally strangers in bars and ask them if I can touch their beards.
Creepy? Absolutely, but I just can’t resist. Especially when they are so fluffy.
Special thanks to Greg Wyshynski from Puck Daddy for giving us this great honor. According to him, he feels our “particular brand of whimsy” regarding this topic would be “sick.”
Best. Compliment. Evah.
