...kid hasn't played a regular season game and already knows how to get on Rangers fans' good side. You know, other than tearing it up on the ice.
H/T to reader Matt D.
Speaking of Kreider, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record says he looked real good skating laps during yesterday's informal practice...
"The players finished yesterday’s informal skate with some endurance laps akin to what they go through on the first day of John Tortorella’s training camp and Kreider was just flying through the laps."
Gross adds that Nash looked pretty good as well.
Kreider looks like a beast, but then why did he have to work so hard to open that second pack of cards?
@TheWrage Are you gay? Did you play with dolls as a boy? Kreider looks like a beast, like he is ready to kill. That's what a hockey player should look like. He has the war face!!!
@KevinDeLury well you know I like to stir the pot but I'm not a homophobe. The whole playing with dolls comment made me think of my child hood cause I had 3 sisters. Anyway I think some people are a little wound tight on this blog. I just really don't think any of my comments were offensive.
@KevinDeLury @TheWrage I asked if James is gay, did I call him a homo? Absolutely not. I can't ask if someone is gay? The flac i got from this is absurd... If I was James my response would have been "lol nah man I'm not gay I just think he would get more ladies with a better hair do" but instead he cries out homophobe, really James? I hope i get to meet you face to face one day
@TheKing @KevinDeLury @TheWrage -- It's a little bit ironic what TheKing points out as being so great about this blog, because he's pointing toward something like acceptance. But it's a positive thing when people acknowledge that these kinds of comments aren't really OK. On the other hand, this is not necessarily the forum for explaining to him what the problem is.
However, here's a recent report on a study published in the current issue of the Journal of American College Health, wherein they examined the impact among LGBT students of hearing "that's so gay." Not exactly the same thing, I know, but it's interesting that I just saw this. "The resulting data found that LGBT students who heard the phrase frequently were more likely to feel isolated and experience headaches, poor appetite or eating problems than those who didn't."
@KevinDeLury @TheWrage I asked if you are gay, what's the problem?The comment about playing with dolls was a joke, lighten up. I just thought it was funny how you seriously commented on kreiders hair not looking good... Are you really that uptight? Kevin i know he is the new guy but the reason you make this blog great is because you can take it and laugh about it.
@TheWrage A little scary for sure.
