    For the youngins out there, there was a 90’s show called “Saved By the Bell” where the protagonist “Zach Morris” would freeze all the characters around him and talk to the audience breaking the fourth wall.

    There are quite a few players who are better than my pick, but I gotta say no one slows down the game like Nicklas Backstrom. Break his finger or chop it off like he’s a member of Yakuza, or pretend you are unimpressed by his game as if you were his nana, but he has such an awesome way of slowing the game to accommodate his decisions. In today’s game of hyper speed that is such a valuable asset, I don’t even know how to articulate what Backy does, he just sub zeroes everyone else on ice!

    Other examples please?

    I have never seen an NHL player freeze those around him and speak to the audience.

    Krejci. He can slow the play down nearly too much at times but anticipates future passing lanes very well.

    They would drink each other under the table.
    I could see Marchand being a “Turtle”

    Who would you guys cast as the ageing mentor ala that football guy from the College Years?

    I'm thinking Radko Gudas

    Bernier when he told the reporter Nelson Mandela was a great athlete.

    NHL players should carry around the Zack Morris 1992 cell phone.

    Ron Hainsey is quite good at slowing down the game, unfortunately it is only his game.

    I could see an interaction of someone on Team Sweden grabbing Backstrom by the shoulders and telling him to quit the allergy meds as if he was Jesse Spano.

    Best thread title in a while

    Thornton is also a good option. Joe, not Scott.

    And the Oscar goes too...


    The hilarious thing about this is the entire episode was written about her taking actual drugs, but got denied by the network so they just put "Caffeine Pills" as the replacement with the same scene.
