Discussion Questions

  1. I have an unwarranted grudge against Pierre-Luc Dubois because he was a real jerk on the ice many years ago during a prospect tournament I covered. And even though people say he’s a nice dude, I’m still like, “but yeah, what about that time he was a real tool when he was like seventeen”? What’s the most random/poinless/uncalled for grudge you have against a player?
  2. The Columbus Blue Jackets are mostly comprised of their AHL team thanks to injury. Which player on their roster that you’ve never heard of before has the best name?
  3. Jeff Carter. That is all.
