Do we have to call him "the reamer"?

Well, we picked our guy. I have a few concerns:

1) He had trouble putting his jersey on. Now I'm no expert at putting on a hockey jersey, but to me, you put one arm in, the other arm in, and then pop your head through the head hole. This character tried to put it on all at once and ended up all tangled up and gangly looking. Sheesh. Put it on like you've done it before buddy!

2) I heard one news organization call him "the reamer". Um, sorry, but I am pretty sure that nickname is taken by a porn star. Choose again.

3) He is from New Jersey, and is a Devils fan. Can he be trusted?

4) Not entirely related, but does Flyers' GM Paul Holmgren have a pulse? I'm down with the poker face guy, but cmon, get a little excited about stuff! (Great job in the off season so far, btw!)

I'm not going to lie seeing him try to put that jersey on was pretty hilarious...we were making fun of him quite a bit.

I think Bill Simmons said it best:

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren looks exactly like Juergen Prochnow. I don't know what this means. He uses the No. 2 pick on American LW James vanRiemsdyk, whose last name sounds like a Dutch porn movie. Does every NHL lottery pick look like an extra from "Dead Poets Society" or was it just these first two?

Oops, the Simmons piece didnt link.

I died when I heard the reamer. That is just not cool. Good luck picking up ladies.

And Holmgren's hair is a bizarre tribute to Johnny Unitas. Wow. Do you think he runs into Howie Long a lot at the barber shop?

Simmons' liveblog was hilarious! I think he was channeling Pookie and Schnookie! Come to think of it, I don't think they did a draft day liveblog...maybe he kidnapped them to ghost write it?!?
