On Tuesday, I posted a tweet from Minneapolis Tribune writer Michael Russo regarding a sick top shelf goal Ryan McDonagh scored after stickhandling through three opponents at Octagon hockey camp in Minnesota earlier in the week.
...listen, I love McDonagh just as much as the next guy but that goal did not live up to the hype. Players were going half speed and the last guy he "beat" barely offered any effort on that token stick check attempt. And what's up with him bent over after the goal? Could his conditioning really be that bad? Looks like someone needs a few Herbies to get back into shape.
...on the positive side, it was encouraging to see McDonagh thinking offense on the play. Guess that's what happens when the Tortorella shackles are taken off. Sorry Torts, didn't mean to criticize you behind your back. Obviously, I'm not real a man.
...you know I officially need hockey to start when I'm critiquing plays from summer camp.
Thanks for H/T! I thought it was just me that the goal didn't look that fabulous but at this point, it's something and I'll take it. Didn't notice the bent over part till you mentioned it - do you think he was bent over or just skating normally not trying to draw attention to himself? That's kind of how I took it. I can't see McDonagh ever being out of shape lol
You're getting bored. Just start posting selfies with Instagram filters. We won't make fun of you. Promise.
I don't think it was fatigue that had him bent over. I think it was the shock of scoring. he just couldn't believe what he did.
@TheNYRBlog I haven't eaten breakfast in like 2 weeks. Thanks, Kevin! Stop trying to starve your followers!!!

@Melissa (blknblueshirts) NP. Great job shaking down the reporter for the video.
@NYR1fanPJ Hope you're ready to fast as I likely won't be Tweeting out breakfast for another few weeks.
