We've all seen in movies where a psychiatrist will say a word and the patient will respond with the first thing that comes to their head. So here's my version of a scene where a psychiatrist is diagnosing a hockey fan:
P: So What do you think of when I say...YASHIN!?
P: But wasn't he a four time all star? Didn't he have a .87 PPG last year?
HF: Yeah but that Ottawa hold out is all I remember...
P: Okay let's try another... FORSERG!:
P: OH COME ON!! He is a Calder winner, a gold medalist Olympian...twice, a hart and art ross winner, 8 time all star, Stanley cup champion and arguably the best Swedish player of all time!!!
HF: Yeah but for two seasons all I've heard about is his foot, new boots for his skates, surgeries, foot consultants... his legacy is his foot, he should have just retired.
HF: Dirty... dirty...dirty.
P: Fair enough with all of those knee on knees he is for sure a dirty player... So..Bertuzzi!
HF: Sucker punch!!
P: That was one thing, he is a four time all star and twice was well above a point per game and considered one of the best power forwards of his time!!
HF: I agree but ESPN played that hit until I could sing along with the commentary.
P: Well now I know you're crazy but let's try one more... SUNDIN!
HF: DEER IN THE HEADLIGHTS!!
P: That's more than one word...
HF: I know but indecisive didn't seem good enough, I needed to paint the picture.
P: Here's your meds...
