Richards is a punk and has a similar dresscode at times so I had to make his crimes known.

There's just no way I'm rooting for Richards, Carter and Penner. Plus someone once said Doughty is fat and I believe them.

I dislike the Devils as a rival but I like the character on their team and their coach better than I like the Kings or Sutter (who appears to be perpetually stoned / drunk based on speech patterns). Plus LA is the biggest bandwagon town in hockey potentially. The idea that they'd try to do a Winter Classic on Venice Beach (what one of their reporters was saying on NHL tonight the other day) is a laugh-and-half. If you can't see your breath, they shouldn't hold the Winter Classic there. The end. This isn't a gimmick; it's supposed to be building a tradition that harkens back the roots of the game, playing on open ice in the great white north.... EH! Least the league can do is never hold it in S California or Florida.
Settling into rigor mortis is more accurate. He might be the most boring man alive.
