Do I want to know what "Vincent Lecavalier nutmegging you in practice" means?

I googled it, it's a soccer-thing. Basically means passing the ball/puck between a players feet/5-hole.

I wonder what "Vincent Lecavalier teabagging you in practice" means in soccer lingo.

Another good one, Max Domi on playing hockey and coping with diabetes. Also a few references to his dad in there.

They must have a stable of writers to either ghost or assist on these.

Goes to show the sense of maturity at such a young age.  Whereas most young people his age can do anything they want without having to deal with a problem/condition, Max Domi is well beyond his years with the discipline & knowledge he needs to sustain himself everyday.

Good read.

Ryan Whitney and Mike Rupp preview the 2nd round of the playoffs: http://www.theplayerstribune.com/ryan-whitney-mike-rupp-second-round-stanley-cup-playoff-preview/

They also did a round 1 preview which you can find a link too there. It's great stuff. While I like the Tribune, it's nice that this isn't your general heavily edited, ghost-written article. Just two hockey guys talking hockey.

Perhaps not this one, but yeah I'm pretty sure most of their long feature articles are ghosted.

It's been confirmed that they are, yeah. Someone interviews the player and basically turns the interview into an article for them.

The Whitney/Rupp stuff do seem more like just a transcript of two guys talking. Maybe there's a bit of editing there but probably not much.

An emotional "heartfelt" letter written by Senators' forward Bobby Ryan to his late mother.  Ryan was left fatherless at a young age, leaving his struggling mother to be the sole breadwinner of the family.

http://www.theplayerstribune.com/we-need-to-talk-about-concussions-right-now/

Good article from Gabriel Landeskog about dealing with post-concussion syndrome and the way hockey culture contributes to players feeling pressure to return before they're ready. Definitely highlights the need for people other than hyper-competitive athletes making calls about game readiness with regards to brain injuries.

Great John Scott piece.

That weekend in Nashville was simply amazing. People talk about goose bumps all the time as a figure of speech, but I legit had goose bumps a dozen times over the course of that game. It felt like the entire building was on my side. The best part of the experience was that my daughters were there to feel all the good energy. For one day, their dad was a superstar.

To top it all off, my wife gave birth a few days later to twin daughters back home in Michigan. It was incredible.

Former Stanley Cup Champion & Chicago Blackhawk now-turned Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Scott Darling, writes a genuinely personal moving 'letter' to his hometown team (Chicago) & it's fans, and talks of his struggles throughout his entire hockey career, from his youth to his ascent to the big leagues.

Darling shares the story of his struggle with anxiety and alcoholism, which took him from being a Phoenix Coyotes prospect at the University of Maine to getting cut from the Louisiana IceGators of Southern Professional Hockey League.

"I drank to forget it...At that point, drinking wasn’t a choice. It wasn’t enjoying it, if that makes sense. It wasn’t something I was looking forward to, like an exciting Friday night with the boys. It was a physical necessity. My life revolved around it.
