Oh hey, look at that! It all worked out for the best though!
NHL picks Kid Rock to perform at the 2018 All-Star Game | For The Win
I realize there was a point in the early 00’s where Kid Rock was really relevant and even widely liked by the main stream but it’s 2018 now...why is the NHL doing this? Are they trying to alienate all of their fans?
Again if anyone can get me a job as NHL music supervisor I’m still available and have references.
NHL - Re-grading every team's offseason ahead of 2017-19 season | ESPN
Not surprisingly Nashville didn’t grade better than they did during the post season. There’s still a lot of hockey left before the playoffs but with Nashville losing all of their top line the next few weeks are gut-check time for the rest of the team.

Plenty on tap for NHL All-Star Weekend in Tampa | NHL
Honestly, it’s all going to have to be really really really god for people to get over the whole Kid Rock thing.
Which NHL players may have lost out on Olympic dream forever? | Yahoo
Forever seems a little dramatic, if I’ve learned anything about hockey it’s that age means nothing to these guys.
Side note...I wouldn’t necessarily use the term “botched” to describe Pekka Rinne’s hip surgery a few years. Unfortunate sounds a little less traumatic.
