Tuesday’s Dump & Chase: Gossip Girl

New, comments

With the usual low level of hockey news, I have resorted to lurking on social media. Arvy apparently has a house full of guests for his honeymoon, the Johansen’s and Josi’s are in Portofino, Tony Bitetto got married and I have thrown in the towel on trying to keep up with P.K.

He's actually very expressive. My personal favorites are the P.K. cuddle and the Winnipeg on his back goal.

No new pictures of the pups this week, but I have something just as cute in the next section.

As much as I love him, I don't believe Brandon Saad is a steal at $6M. I wonder how hard it was to choose between Roman Josi, Mattias Ekholm, Calle Jarnkrok, Viktor Arvidsson, Juuse Saros and Ryan Ellis? We love you David Poile.

This is just too sweet. The best retweet caption was “Natural Hat Trick!” Ha! Check out the footprints on his hands. Congratulations!

Better know a Louisville sport: Ice Hockey | Card Chronicle
"The "fastest sport at U of L" is continuing to grow." Hey! We have hockey here in Louisville. I wish the arena sat more than 700. They need more publicity - and who knew the Nashville Predators were involved in Youth Hockey in Louisville? I may have to petition the Nashville Predators for a PR job.

EEEEK a troll! Hi Preds! Oh Viktor Arvidsson - That was very nice. Filip Forsberg - My Goodness! Ryan Johansen - Do that more often! It's beautiful! There's that darn troll again. Filip Forsberg - That is just X rated. Oooo Pekka Rinne - Almost!
