But I will be you literally ANYTHING that you'll love this guy before long.
He's the guy who brought the silly God-awful 80's Bruins jacket to be used as the "award" after each playoff game... Then brought the God-awful humongoid chain (you've seen pics of Kelly23 wearing it), then brought the fighter jacket this year. He is a real locker-room guy. He's a real community guy (don't be surprised if you see him biking in the streets or Tweeting to invite you to his workout runs)...
As has been mentioned - If he's on the ice, and someone takes liberties with your guy, he is the first guy there to deliver a beating. I've been watching and playing hockey for close to 40 years, and I have never seen a guy stand up for teammates with as much.... gusto. It's actually fun to watch!
You will NOT regret the signing. I promise.
Well, the Oilers have high hopes for the Smid/Petry pairing but in my opinion Ference is our best all-around defenseman at the moment. That just illustrates how far this team still has to go.
Sidenote: I'm loving the header on his Twitter page. Those old school Oilers gloves are awesome.
