The Hockey Hotties Report

Listening to last night’s 4-2 Canuck victory over the Habs, I found myself wondering how my hockey hotties have been doing this season. This may be because Gorges seemed to have the puck *a lot*. But also because Carey Price got to play a bit.  At any rate, I thought I’d update y’all on how well my hotties have been playing this season.

So, yeah, apparently hottness alone does not a stellar hockey player make.  My team of hockey hotties ranges from the 3rd leading point scorer in the league (Crosby) and the 2nd highest goal scorer (Parise) to some dude who didn’t show up to work.

The Rick DiPietro Report

My recent investigation on hotness levels of NHL players1 has opened my eyes to the fact that there are apparently hot NHL hockey players that *aren’t* on the Vancouver Canucks2. (Who knew?)  Through that research, I became especially enamoured with His Hotness, Rick DiPetro of the New York Islanders3. So, I’ve decided that I will institute a semi-regular4 Rick DiPetro update, wherein I’ll check in on how His Hotness is doing this season.

In this inaugural Rick DiPetro Report, I am pleased for first bring you two videos. First, I give you a clip of His Hotness talking at the 2008 All Star game:

You can pretty much watch it with the sound off – he’s just yammering about how it’s good to be here and blah blah blah – but isn’t he adorable?

Second, a video of His Hotness punching5 Sean Avery:

And now the actual hockey part.  As it turns out, DiPietro sat the first four games of the season with a bad knee, as he had knee surgery in June and just wasn’t ready for prime time yet.  His first game of the season on Oct 18 – which was also his first game since March when he had to have hip surgery – was a 2-0 loss, despite his valiant effort making 34 saves. Hmm… perhaps I should just go back to my ogling of Ricky D and reserve my actual hockey fanship for my beloved Canucks.

1This reminds me – the last I mentioned here on NTBTWK, there was going to be a virtual hockey pool draft in which I was going to use my hottie hockey player research to draft a team of super hotties. And then I left y’all hanging. As it turned out, the virtual draft was canceled due to unforeseen circumstances that caused the draft organizer to be unavailable. Which may be for the best, as now I can love all the hotties on my list and not just the ones I managed to get in the draft.
2Canucks GM Mike Gillis, if you are readinga, I highly suggest you consult my list when it comes time to consider trades.
aI know you are reading.
3Fortunately, he plays in the East, so I don’t need to be worried about being conflicted when the Canucks play his team, given that we only play each Eastern team once per decade.
4by which I mean “whenever I remember to” and/or “when I’m suffering from blogger’s block and can’t think of anything else to write about.”
5I would like to state that I take exception to this video being titled “Rick DiPietro slaps Sean Avery.” I mean, he’s pretty clearly punching Sean Avery. Yeesh.
