This should be a big help........to Canada.

Keep playing him at centre Randy, he looks really comfortable there. :-)

Unlike the other US Team "lock" on his line last night, at least he doesn't shy away from contact.

Though the Staypuff Personal Contact Avoidance Field Generator (the PCAF for short) did manage to create a turnover, when the Bruin player heading up the boards prepared to play through the contact he lost the puck and Staypuff's PFAC, kicking in about a foot away, allowed him to swerve and pick up the puck... which he then gave up 5 seconds later when Chara looked at him.

LMFAO - I always wondered how he did it.

Van Reimspussy isn't any more rugged than Phyllis is. You must have missed the part where he VRP went near the Boston net and was greeted by Chara. He curled up in the fetal position so fast it would have made P.P Subban proud.

And looked for the "he's bigger than me" penalty call from the Ref

Kids got some size and skill, but his acting like he got shot every time someone hits or touches him makes me dislike him very much.

Wait I lost track. We still talking about JVR or PK, cause that works for both.

They both came out of the distinguished "Charmin Hockey Program".

Me too. Sleepwalking through large segments of the game won't cut it.
