I want to print out a poster-sized print of that “McDonagh’s D” image that Ras posted and put it on a posterboard and take it to the first Rangers game I go to next year who’s with me.
as long as it doesn’t have my username on it i’m all for it
i think i even have a higher-quality version somewhere

Stars: Would you go to great lengths in order to have a “chance encounter” with your favourite player?
nah. if i meet my favorite players, i meet my favorite players. if not, well, that’s cool, too. i’m not particularly interested in autographs or anything like that.
Habs: Who is your all-time favourite rookie/prospect?
ffffff. i kind of want to say kreider for last year, but he wasn’t actually a rookie. i loved elias lindholm last year! OH ALSO TEUVO. one of those guys. (i feel like there’s someone else i really liked but i can’t remember who it was?) OH WAIT SHIT VAL HOW DID I FORGET VAL AHHHH THIS IS SO HARD
Islanders: How long have you been a fan of hockey?
urrr. a little over a year? i probably would’ve been a fan earlier, but my mom hated it ahahaha. but here i am!

Bruins: Pick five hockey players you’d want to hang out with for a day (they can all be either from the same team or different teams).
probably… lundqvist, kreider, jamie benn, jeff skinner, and the staals. because the staals are one entity.
Avalanche: Who was the first player you’ve met? Describe what happened at that moment.
i don’t think i’ve met a pro hockey player before, and if i have, it was before i liked hockey, so i didn’t know who he/she was. the first non-pro hockey player i’ve ever met was my brothers’ friend keith, who was really awesome in college and who probably would’ve been drafted if he wasn’t like 5’6” and serious about education reform. my reaction was basically, “gross,” because he’s my brothers’ friend and they were in high school. :|| (i enjoy his presence now, though. it’s nice to have someone to talk to hockey about at parties.)
Oilers: Describe your all-time favourite moment that happened to your team.
i’m going to have to say it’s a tie between when the ‘hawks won the cup last year (because holy sHIT) and when the rangers won the eastern conference finals (because hOLY SHITTT). the ‘hawks win was important to me because it was what solidified my interest in hockey and kept me watching even though i could’ve easily lost interest over the summer. the rangers, well, they’re my favorites. they’d gotten the shit knocked out of them for most of the season, and then there they were with the prince of wales trophy. it was amazing.
