    Default Deadspin's disdain-- a masterclass

    Deadspin's disdain makes me smile like the last three Jokers actors (Ledger, Leto, Phoenix) combined. Their last four hockey articles:


    Good riddance, Bobby Hull

    Sam Fels



    Bobby Hull and Ivan Provorov donít need you to defend them

    Julie DiCaro





    The NHL isnít for you
    Sam Fels

    ****
    L.A. Kings, Pacific Division prove why overtime and the shootout are a plague upon society

    " Folks, lemme tell ya, the Kings arenít good at anything. Theyíre 17th in goals per game. Theyíre 22nd in goals-against per game. Their penalty kill makes the baby Jesus weep. Their power play barely rises to the level of decent. Their metrics are just above middling, 13th in Corsi-percentage and 10th in expected goals percentage at even-strength. Their goaltending is less presentable than a puke-puddle in Hollywood, a far more common occurrence than most people realize."

    Deadspin's audience is niche and writing about hockey makes Sam even more obscure in American media but the dude can craft a joke and his take on the NHL is progressive.

    I like him.
