    There's a gif of him from the last game in the box and he drinks from a water bottle and goes:

    "Is this water?"

    this guy has it pretty much right. The game has changed. You don’t “have to fight” anyone, the notion of the hockey code is fading.

    personally I like when a player answers the bell after running around but it’s not a must. The idea is to win games.

    I also have zero problem with Kassian going nuts this time and trying to get Tkachuk to engage, but if he comes out in the next game between the teams and continues? Then he is a fool.

    There are other ways to make a team pay. They run you, you run them. They get a PP, you draw a PP. Spots can be picked without hurting your team.

    I remember that clip when I saw the stream as well. He definitely says, "What is this? Water?"

    To be fair though, super cold Dasani tastes weird. I believe because Dasani is a distilled water with minerals and a sodium tasted added in afterwards, super cold it tastes like diluted flat seltzer IMO. I prefer Aquafina which is distilled water plus ozone and it doesn't have that weird taste and it will not go bad even after many months (ozone naturally kills germs. Learned that in some post aocalyptic survivor show on discovery). There's reports that low end stuff like Nestle water and other "spring water" like those flats of water at Costco is actually is just tap water from the local areas which means it's super over priced and there's a higher concentration of germs etc. in them than you'd like if they sit around for too long. Not as nasty as those idiots that drink untreated mountain water and call it "raw water" though, but after 6 months, I'd consider chucking them due to bacteria growth and potential sedimentation. Any other distilled waters are fine for a very long time though.

    Source: random business articles about water sommelier being a growing industry (eye roll) and other articles talking about bottled water that has been kept for months potentially having too much bacteria growth that could get you sick... and articles about the face palm things that hipsters like to do.

    Big thing for me is this code doesn't always seem to apply to everyone, just when the media really hypes it. Top line players usually don't fight third liners.

    So with 2020 being the year of the rat, I think we may have a potential avatar theme.

    I like the TMNT theme. Either way, it’s gonna be gold.

    what I'm confused about is every makes it sound like Kassian shouldn't have gotten suspended because the refs failed to call any penalties on the hits.

    I know there's a code... but that code doesn't say anything about being able to be immune from the rules. The two plays are completely independent from each other from a rules perspective. I'm sure everyone understands why Kass went bananas, just like I'm sure everyone understands why McSorley went after Brashear's temple, but it doesn't mean the rules changed and they were allowed to...

    Everyone talks about the code. I wonder what does the code say about punching repeatedly a guy that is on the ice

    Year of the Rat should be playoff avatars if the boys can make it there.

    He's the one player I cannot stand but would absolutely LOVE to have on my team.

    Marchand... I would hate him on my team. I don't get how Bruins fans are happy to have that rat on their team...

    Everyone knows the way to not play into Matthew is to avoid his antics. Problem is you have idiots like Kassian who can't help themselves.

    3-1-0 against Edmonton this year, Matthew Tkachuk playing a front-and-centre roll in all three wins. I'll take it :laugh:
