RMNB reader Claire Altman had a giant poster made for the game. The poster is of Burakovsky holding Tom Wilson as if Wilson is his baby. Burakovsky posted Claire’s photoshop to his Instagram Story in May during the summer to tease Tom Wilson and continue his long-simmering social media “beef” with his former roommate.
