Does NHL.COM have a random pun generator?

I don't know how they do it, they must be assisted by some sort of device or perhaps manatee's......

Tonight alone:
"Hem and Haw"
"Hall Maul"
"Dub Step"
"Luong Shot"
"Fasth Gordon"

and my favorite
"GREISS-A-RONI"

How much do you guys think the NHL.COM staff drinks on game night?

I'm willing to bet they just keep a list that they add to as soon as they think of one.

"Fasth Gordon"? That seems like a bit of a stretch. Why not "Fasth and Furious" or any pun that replaces "fast" with "Fasth".

I like to imagine that writing those puns are literally the only thing Bettman does all day.

The problem is pun headlines that can actually be good, but only for big-time games.

Edit: Playoffs, most likely in the later rounds.

Wow, so is this Toews account?

It's just for fun. It's a nice change compared to the seriousness of other "major" sports.
