Chapter Text

Willy:

@cale https://jakeguentzels.tumblr.com/post/641218538060840960/braden-holtby-cools-off-during-the-first-period-in did this 100% make your panties wet?

Cale:

*sigh* I thought I got enough of this from my OWN teammates

Hartsy:

That…. Wasn’t a no….

Cale:

OI! You are DEFINITELY supposed to be on my side

Hartsy:

🤠🤠🤠

Willy:

I mean, at least everyone on National TV has seen you GO full Pricey now

Hartsy:

….dooooon’t…. my MOM rang me

Cale:

Was she mad?

Hartsy:

She was…. CONCERNED…

Stromer:

That’s WORSE

Lu:

Shits going down on twitter btw

Sid:

?

Lu:

Basically, someone called out the NWHL for associating with barstool

Sid:

Why would that be bad?

Lu:

Because barstool are misogynistic twats? And also racist bigots.

Sid:

And they’re sponsoring the NWHL?

Lu:

Well… no… although they did threaten to buy one of the teams

Lu:

But like, a bunch of players have been on barstool podcasts

Lu:

And twitter is just pointing out how shit it is

Lu:

But then the CEO of barstool BASICALLY sent out a HIT on like anyone who called them out on it

Nate:

See, I’ve only seen the stuff from Biz

Nate:

And like, is it really that bad?

Lu:

🤦‍♂️

Lu:

Yes

Nate:

Going on a podcast isn’t like, supporting the organisation?

Nate:

Like, I’ve been on chiclets because I like the guys that run it, SID’s been on it. Doesn’t mean we’re like, supporting barstool or whatever

Matts:

Except it kind of does.

Matts:

Because by going on their pods, you’re literally making money for them

Nate:

Or just… supporting my friends?

Matts:

Look, I’m not going to get into this

Matts:

B/cause honestly, this is usually such a positive chat

Matts:

But your privilege is really fucking showing.

Sid:

Also, tbf, I didn’t go on chiclets because I like biz

Sid:

Because I don’t…. he’s an irritating little shit

Sid:

I mostly did it to shut him up

TBeauts:

Isn’t that how he gets MOST of his guests?

TBeauts:

Just fucking annoying people until they go on his show?

Stromer:

I don’t like it that there’s this huge NWHL/PWHPA war

Stromer:

Like… can’t EVERY BODY PLAY?

Stromer:

HOW IS MORE HOCKEY A BAD THING?

Brinks:

Love you babes.

Stromer:

How many more days?

Stromer:

Also how is boqqy doing?

Brinks:

He’s ok. I’m still getting negative tests so should be out sooooon

Kaner:

GOOD!

Kaner:

Need you back. This team is… weird… and not my team right now.

Tazer:

But you’re being SUCH a good mom to the rookies

Stromer:

HE REALLY IS

Kaner:

The second you’re back Jon, I’m stopping talking to ANY ROOKIES AT ALL

Kaner:

Except you Stromer.

Stromer:

I’M NOT EVEN A ROOKIE ANYMORE

Kaner:

I don’t care. You’re my rookie :P

JT:

I feel like rookie is a subjective term anyway

JT:

Like, Ry’s my rookie for life

JT:

Even though we don’t play on the same team anymore, and he’s definitely not a rookie anymore

JT:

HE’S STILL MY ROOKIE

Stromer:

Hey JT…. Wanna know what your rookie did with the next next one?

Davo:

WILL YOU PLEASE DROP IT DYLAN!!!

Davo:

FFS

Stromer:

NEVER :D

Davo:

Ugh. Literally gonna be on my tombstone.

Stromer:

We’ve already decided we’re putting it on Ry’s.

Chucky:

That’s…. weirdly morbid?

Stromer:

You mean you HAVEN’T planned out all the evil things you’d write on your brother’s tombstone just because it meant he wouldn’t be able to get you back for it?

Chucky:

… I like my siblings…

Brinks:

OMG did you see the comment that was made about team USA Olympics

Brinks:

That sending Jizzy hughes out on a line with you and Brades would be like “sending him out for a walk with his two pet pitbulls”

Chucky:

I’m up for it :D

Chucky:

Like for real, it would be kind of cool to get to play with EITHER Brades or any of the hughes babies

Cale:

Is your brother ACTUALLY in love with Quinn Hughes?

Chucky:

I believe as stromer would say, Brades consideres Quinny “BAE but not baeeeeee”

Chucky:

Also Brades is, as far as I know, completely straight.

Hartsy:

It’s ok… you’re the cute chucky anyhow :D

Davo:

Speaking of Olympic teams…

Davo:

@Lu in your new position, you’re campaigning for an entirely queer team Canada yeah?

Lu:

LMAO. Like, I can maybe do something about making sure @Hartsy makes it

Lu:

But I’m not sure how much the others are going to listen to me on NON GOALIE decisions

Cale:

You mean you could arrange it so the goalies are…. Not binnington???

Lu:

I’ll take it under consideration :P

Cale:

I just think a Holtby/Price/Hart goalie trio would be…

Hartsy:

I’M BEGGING YOU @LU do NOT make decisions based on how horny my boyfriend is for the goalies….

Cale:

Oh COME ON

Cale:

There ARE no better Canadian goalies

Sid:

#rude

Cale:

I would accept MAF in the mix as well, just… like… I also wouldn’t accept any of those three NOT being in the mix

Cale:

Also would accept your baby Jars

Cale:

😉

Hartsy:

AGAIN…. Not just on cale’s thirst. That is NOT an accurate representation of goalie talent

Gabe:

I mean…. You SAY that

Gabe:

But talent DOES factor in how attractive Cale finds a goalie

Gabe:

We’ve worked that much out already.

Cale:

It’s why I think @Hartsy is the hottest. Because he’s the best

EJ:

🤢 omg baby…. WHY MUST YOU BE THIS WAY???

Claude:

Holy shit @howdy… WHAT THE HELL IS GOING DOWN?

Stromer:

Ditto. Ry just texted me saying that Tony dA and GEORGIEV got in a fight!?!?!?

Howdy:

OMG. I AM DYING

Howdy:

THIS IS LITERALLY THE BEST DAY OF MY CAREER

Howdy:

SO, you guys saw what happened in OT

Howdy:

Or at least… @sid saw… -.-

Sid:

I’m not gonna apologise because your team has communication issues

Howdy:

ANYWAY, like, I’m so over the L because this just got so much better

Howdy:

And as we’re walking back to the locker room

Howdy:

And Georgie was PISSED about Sid’s goal, because like, it was a fuck up on our part

Howdy:

And like, what do you do when your goalie is pissed??

Chucky:

Avoid him?

Chucky:

Maybe offer him cuddles?

Howdy:

OR… if you’re tony Dangelo… call him a racist slur and sarcastically congratulate him on the game

Chucky:

He fucking didn’t?!?!

Howdy:

He did. Like, racist might not be the right word. It was a very anti-russian word.

Howdy:

So Georgie just fucking shucks his mitt, PUNCHES HIM IN THE FACE WITH HIS BLOCKER

Howdy:

And then grabs him into a headlock

Howdy:

And we’re all like, WHAT THE FUCK DO WE DO?

Howdy:

Because like obviously ALL THE RUSSIANS are pissed on georgie’s behalf

Howdy:

Because like, you’d have to be an IDIOT to call a Russian kid that

Howdy:

But also we’re like… holy shit, this is two of our teammates fighting

Howdy:

And obvs, like, Georgie is NOT a fighter, he’s a fucking goalie, HE’S STILL IN HIS GOALIE PADS

Howdy:

So tony’s fighting back

Howdy:

But then…. BUT THEN…. AHHHHH

Howdy:

Krieds stepped in and just fucking LEVELLED him, ONE FUCKING PUNCH

Howdy:

Tony went DOWWWWWWN 😂😂😂😂😂

Howdy:

And honestly, I’ve never really found a teammate attractive

Howdy:

Don’t @ me, hockey players aren’t my type

Howdy:

But I would have HAPPILY gone down on my knees and blown krieds there and then

Howdy:

(and I DON’T think I was the only person with that thought)

Chucky:

Are they gonna suspend tDa?

Howdy:

So, here’s the other thing

Howdy:

Tony was a healthy scratch for a game at the start of the season

Howdy:

And was SUPER pissy about it. Like, throwing tantrums kind of pissy

Howdy:

And according to stromer (R stromer, not you dyl), management had told him “one more incident and you’re on waivers” so….

Chucky:

Holy shit

Sid:

How are your boys coping?

Howdy:

Surprisingly well.

Howdy:

Tony’s been fucking irritating as SHIT this season

Howdy:

You know the kind of shit, being a total asshole and then being “ohhh it was just a prank”

Howdy:

Saying really offensive shit and then “ohhhh it’s just chirrrrps”

Howdy:

And whilst I know a couple of players who’ll miss him

Howdy:

I also know like, most of us REALLY FUCKING WON’T

Stromer:

So now you just wait to see what happens with him on waivers?

Stromer:

(quick, everyone tell your teams not to take him)

Tazer:

I don’t think anyone’s gonna take him

Richie:

Like honestly, who the fuck fights THEIR OWN GOALIE?

Howdy:

Every time I get sad, I’m gonna think about Georgie punching him in the face with his blocker

Lack:

Is this the guy who challenged a fan to a fight on twitter?

Howdy:

Yup, that’s tony.

Lack:

And then quit twitter, repeatedly

Howdy:

He’s going to join “parler” when it exists again

Lack:

Jeeeez

Lack:

I imagine you ARE grateful to have him off the team

Howdy:

We’ve been told to say that he’s our teammate and we’re sad this has to happen to our teammate.

Stromer:

And secretly you’re all DELIGHTED

Howdy:

I mean…. Yeah… yeah we are.

 

… 24 hours later

Howdy:

Aaaaand Tony’s cleared off waivers :D

Sid:

Is he going to the taxi squad?

Howdy:

Yep. Taxi squad but he’s not allowed to train with us and he’s staying at home not training.

Lu:

Gonna say it again. Who the FUCK punches their GOALIE?

Howdy:

Also @sid, like, a little bit thanks, for being the catalyst to start the whole tony getting kicked off the team

Sid:

I will gladly, ALWAYS score on ANY of your teams that you want me to

Sid:

That’s a blanket offer right there

Nate:

…. Thanks…. -.-

Sid:

You’re welcome!
