The Hobey Baker fallout continues to be felt across the NHL.
Here’s the video, for anyone that missed it:
For some good old fashioned moral outrage, check out Puck Daddy.
As always, the comments section is where the true gold lies:
A commentor at NHL Fanhouse also brought us this gem:
We’re sure each and every one of those commentors knew exactly who Hobey Baker was and were very familiar with the details of his life and death prior to this incident.
Otherwise, why would they be so upset?
Just because it’s a chance to insult the Penguins?
That’s impossible.
Check out The Confluence for more.

No word on whether or not the Tampa Bay Lightning plan to throw money at Staal now.
Go Pens.
