The offseason is now in full swing. The Cup has been won, the beards shaved, the players re-signed. Aside from the continuing adventures of the Stanley Cup, there’s not a whole lot happening in the hockey world. Until now! Presenting a new series in which we will finally understand the true nature of the world champion 2017-18 Washington Capitals through the prism of stupid popular culture. I’m calling it Not Up For Debate because everyone everywhere will agree that these are the universal consensus picks.
In this episode: What animal apparition would the Caps use to dispel Dementors?
Strong presence wakes the team up, but never gets cocky.
Hm. That’s weird.
Currently extinct but we have the technology to bring him back.
You’ll miss em when they’re gone.
Unrelated: have you ever been in the woods somewhere and seen a wild turkey just hanging out? They are terrifying. They’re like angry little dinosaurs and am scared of them.
I don’t remember why I chose this.
I’ll never forget four goals and two assists in the final two rounds.
He’s been hiding on the third pair, but be careful. He’s ferocious.
Tired: tiger. Wired: horse.
Being the usurping 2A goalie could have made Grubi an antagonist, but he was too peaceable for that.
People don’t appreciate the abuse this poor fella suffered last season.
I don’t get it. Why did I make Jerabek a jerboa — oh I get it now. That’s dumb.
People love llamas because they’re cuddly and kind, but they’re not. They’re devious and arrogant, and that’s why I love them.
Um. Google it.
Most patriotic birb.
The G.O.A.T. is a sheep.
Lying in wait until he pounced — in the loffs.
I just wanted a giraffe on the team somewhere.
Copycatting all the things that made Andre great.
I’d also accept literally any marsupial. Let’s not outsmart ourselves here.
Though the series is called Not Up For Debate, I’m leaving the comments open. So you can compliment me. For the very good picks. Appreciate the congrats.
