• WHAT IF: NHL TEAM WERE SOCCER TEAMS •
As a Brazilian hockey and soccer fan who likes soccer jerseys and loves to see jersey concepts for hockey I couldn't help but to wonder how they would look like and since I didn't find something like that I created one for each team! Image
Disclaimers: soccer jerseys usually have a sponsor and since we don't have that in NHL I simply used the helmet sponsors (for those cool guys that don't have one like Avs and Flyers I used the one from arena naming rights)

Teams are in abbreviation order!

Ok let's go!
1 - Anaheim Ducks
#FlyTogether @AnaheimDucks @DucksBRA

It's pretty simple but I think it looks fine, didn't want to mess something Image

OTD in 1959, after taking a shot from Andy Bathgate in the nose, Jacques Plante leaves the game & returns wearing a mask.

This is a (mega) thread to Plante & to the mask wearers who followed. Some great goalies/masks do not appear & some appear more than once.

Gerry Cheevers and his iconic mask. The first to have markings on it. #NHLBruins
3/many

I considered doing a thread just on Michel Dion's mask.

I have translated Panarin's interview to a Russian Youtube channel, where he rips Putin to shreds. It's absolutely magnificent. Nothing like this has ever been said by a Russian athlete, ever. Please, read this. The Breadman is an absolute monster.

People are asking what might happen to Panarin now. I honestly have no idea and nobody in Russia does either. This has never happened before. Putin could always count on jocks to have his back.
I am not sure even he knows how to proceed. Or if to proceed in any way.
For those interested, the interview was actually recorded a month ago, but Panarin is STILL in Russia. The kid is obviously fresh out of crap to give.
So, yes, Gotham, who needs Batman when you have Breadman.

A thread about Gary Bettman, the NHL & how the league of denial used Todd Ewen’s case to cast doubt on a link between repeated brain injuries and CTE

Thank you to @rwesthead for covering the concussion hearing in depth

2/ The widow of Todd Ewen sued the National Hockey League on Tuesday, claiming the #NHL cynically exploited a botched analysis of her husband’s brain, which later tested positive for #CTE

Even in death, former players are not safe

3/ “Unbeknownst to Kelli Ewen, Dr Lili-Naz Hazrati served as an expert witness for the #NHL in multidistrict litigation...”

"Had [Dr. Hazrati] disclosed her conflicts of interest, Kelli would never have sent Todd's brain to her” Ewen said

With the opt in/out date deadline on Jan 18th 4 the @NHL #concussion lawsuit I wanted to revisit this breakdown from @SheillaDingus on the red flags of the settlement:

1/ A potential life & death situation is noted, in which the #NHL says “live or die...

advocacyforfairnessinsports.org/nhl-concussion…
we don’t care, just don’t ask us for any money.” Players are instructed to file a claim from the Additional Payment Fund—if they live long enough

2/ The NHL control of testing procedure immediately drew a red flag. It is notable that the cost of testing is NOT included....
in the total value of the settlement but is instead an uncapped fund under COMPLETE control of the NHL

It seems odd that no one to my knowledge has reported this

“In the big picture the cost of these exams is de minimus, particularly when the NHL is in control of these exams”

After seeing all of the negative messages towards Stan Bowman, I’d like to take this opportunity to tell @NHLBlackhawks fans how Stan Bowman helped save my life.

1/ I blew my ACL out on January 2nd 2012 & had surgery to repair my ligament. I was on a one year deal at close to...
2/ league minimum. When I came to the #Blackhawks, I had made several lifestyle changes. The most significant being I was clean and sober for the for the first time in my career. From everything. No NyQuil. No alcohol. No opiates. No weed. Nothing. I did 90 meetings in 90 days...
3/ And Steve Montador was helping to guide my transition into a new lifestyle. Bc of this, I made sure that everyone in the #Hawks organization knew the path I was on, to better help keep protect myself from myself. Fast forward to March 12th & I signed a new two year deal....
