Kinda looks like Steve Ott was in Dodgeball doesn’t it? Both named Steve so yea why not?
Ott throughout his NHL career was ‘that guy’ and had some really bad chirps. Heard that teammates described him as the absolute worst when it comes to that. He straight up told Giroux he’d beat him on a draw and then lost it clean.
During the intermission of that game Ott attempted to be a tough guy with Flyers coach Peter Laviolette. Yea Pete wasn’t havin any of that:
Fun fact: Ott was Captain of the Buffalo Sabres at one point lol.
I saw Dodgeball in the theater with my friend Chris..not Doud he sucks.. my other friend Chris. And there were two take aways he had from that movie when we left: fuckin Chuck Norris and cram it in your cram hole. Chris straight up said those two things on repeat for the next couple of months. Alan Tudyk gave a convincing performance as a pirate. Real character actor. He was funny as hell in ‘Knocked Up’ also. But he fuckin nailed it as K-2S0 in Rogue One.
People say that Glen Sather does some pretty stupid things but Holmgren and Snider are right up there with stupid decisions. From exiling Richards and Carter to bring in Bryzgalov then bringing back Emery after buying out Bryzgalov you can say their resume for stupidity is growing. With that being said firing ‘Lette might be a good thing for this team. When Laviolette came in as coach in 2010, he brought these dicks to the Stanley Cup at the 8th seed and gave ChiTown a good run for their money but failed. 2010-2011 season came around and they were nasty throughout the regular season and then lost in the second round meanwhile they were picked to go to the Stanley Cup.
2011-2012 they were knocked out in the Semi Finals by the Devils and then Philly didn’t even make the playoffs last year. I guess them sucking carried over into preseason as they went 1-5 and now 0-3 to start the season. They just seem to be going backwards. I mean that’s good for fans of teams that root against Philadelphia. It’s a demanding sports city. I mean the fans are crazy, they’ll just fight people over stupid shit. I guess Holmgren and Snider expected the second coming of Christ from Laviolette but it just didn’t work out. ‘Lette’s a very good coach, a Stanley Cup winner keep in mind I guarantee he will a job because some team is bound to do terrible and fire a coach.
Craig Berube is taking over the mantle as head coach. Guy’s got a such a funny name. Craig. Also Craig’s remarkable flow back in circa ’98 was damn near flawless. On par wit Jags:
One more thing, I strongly feel that the greatest thing Peter Laviolette ever did as the head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers was tell Steve Ott to go fuck himself.
So if you’ve been following along all summer, the Sabres have been releasing teasers in the form of extreme close ups of parts of their anticipated new alternate sweater. Today they literally dropped this:
Are you fuckin kidding? So Steve Ott had enough and took matters into his own hands:
Steve Ott: man of the people.
As far as the jersey itself, I surprisingly don’t hate it; it’s original and definitely a departure from the “traditional” uninspired looks we’ve seen other teams come out with over the past couple months. Silver lower half of the sleeves suck tho.
