Thank you so much for making my day…I am not a fan of Vancouver, but I don’t have many players in Detroit that could pull that off….

Why am I hearing Eric Cartman’s voice in my head bellowing “BEEFCAKE!”

Aside from the beefcake innuendo…. wink  I think that pic is kind of amazing, given how clearly it shows his conditioning.  It really proves how hard the guy must work to be as good as he is.  It’s crazy.

He’s from Livonia, so I have no guilt enjoying the view.

Hope Solo.

Who cares about this guy?

God, I can only imagine what’s going on inside the Canucks’ own locker room now that this photograph has been released.  You know Kesler’s never going to hear the end of it.

Any updates on such razzing would of course be appreciated, Alanah!

Seriously?  I can think of several Red Wings that could pull that off.  Too shy?  Maybe, but they would look equally excellent in that outfit.
