I wouldn’t take Datsyuk as an outdoorsy kinda guy. But it’s clear as day with his Duck Dynasty/Bass Master get-up that he’s got goin, I’m pretty fuckin wrong. Guy definitely does four wheeling through a couple pipelines when he’s got some spare time. Take a look at that fuckin fish he caught. I’m pretty impressed with that. Whatever water or vodka Datsyuk drinks he must’ve got it from Geno Malkin because 2 weeks ago Malkin caught this…
Literally move over Kevin Van Dam, Geno and Pasha will take it from here.
It was another underwhelming performance in the post season for the Great 8. It was also another failure yet again to lead any team of his passed the second round of the playoffs in his 10 year career. He even had the Messier-like balls to make a game 7 guarantee victory.
He’s now taking time to reflect on what could’ve been:

Gotta say he looks good in that uni. Maybe in a couple years when he comes back to North America he can throw on a real Rangers sweater, and if so he would now bring with him championship pedigree. 2 G effort for K-Chuk in Game 5 vs AK Bars Kazan to bring SKA St. Petersberg it’s first Gagarin Cup title over the weekend as they dispatched Kazan in 5.
I like the omen that a team dressed like that won the “cup.” Couldn’t hurt, Rangers and their fans need all the karma they can get.
Also I straight up need this hat like yesterday:
Deadlocked at 1
Bring it home for FREEDOM
This one’s for Apollo
So apparently it seems like I’m the only one who likes the USA Unis unveiled the other day which means I’m the only one around here with any kinda style sense. Well if you hated those then the threads that host country Russia will don this winter will make you wanna murder babies, at least their white set will anyway.
Subtly yet not so subtly the Siberian sweaters are laden with their overt intentios of capturing gold a 9th time in front of their home crowd; the whites display their 8 Gold Medals down the right sleeve while the reds display the russian flag trimmed in gold as it’s sleeve stripes along with said 8 gold medals on the shoulder yokes. Everyone’s gonna cringe when the rock the whites but here’s why it’s sick: the entire white of the sweater (body and arms) is a silhouette (big word for you beauts I know) of their 2 headed eagle national crest. Creative and distinct yet simple and stylish for a 2 week tournament that happens once every 4 years. Dope city. Well done Nike, I approve.
Whatever you feel about the unis worn by each country, theres no question the ugliest thng in the tournament will be Phil Kessel..
The weeks leading up to the 2010 Olympics David Backes was straight up attacking and beating up high profiled Canadian players. He went after Perry, Nash, and Jonathan Toews. Due to the fact that the 2014 Olympics are in Russia, D Back might be targeting Russians leading up to the Winter Games. Semin stands no chance.
It’s an open and shut case.
Ilya Kovalchuk: Case Closed
Guy bolted to Russia, left $77 million bucks. Word?
Myself and fellas over at Beer League Beauts put together a little video to pay tribute to Ilya and his time in New Jersey. Definitely a great day to be a Ranger fan. Peace out playa.
From Puck Daddy: “Ilya Kovalchuk left $77 million on the table with the New Jersey Devils when he retired from the NHL on Thursday to return to Russia.
According to Pavel Lysenkov of SovSport, Kovalchuk will be making that money up as the premiere star of the KHL – and in short order.
Lysenkov reports that Kovalchuk will be joining SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL, the team for which he played during the NHL lockout. There’s where he will “become the most-paid player in the world,” according to SovSport.
How much? He speculates that if it was “a $15-20 million per year (at the taxation in 13%)” it would not be a surprise. (No word if that’s on the KHL cap or some of it off the books.)
On top of that, Puck Daddy’s Dmitry Chesnokov believes SKA could front-load the contract and pay Kovalchuk an enormous sum of money up front.”
Dude wanted to be a Ranger in 2010 and now at least he’ll look like one playin in his native land. Nice little extra jab at the poor psyche of Devil fans.
Dude didnt wanna come back to the NHL after the lockout ended and stayed a little longer to participate in the KHL All Star Game and he’ll be the highest paid player in the game on this planet. Also this is his wife:
Reeeeaaaly doesn’t suck to be him. Only sucks to be a Devils fan.
