While discussing the superb play of Mikael Samuelsson on TSN’s hockey panel this morning, Darren Pang made a qualifying remark along the lines of, sure, Samuelsson benefits from “playing with the Twinkies.”
There are a lot of urban-slang definitions of Twinky, none redeeming.
The real deal, as such, is the small sponge cake with the fake cream filling.
Henrik and Daniel Sedin spongy? Soft on the inside? Fake?...
What’s sad is you might expect a talking head from the East to still call the Sedins sissy names, but Pang has broadcast experience with the Coyotes and Blues, and must have seen the physical pounding the Sedins regularly take without batting an eye, let alone missing any games.

Hey Vancouver fans, meant nothing by the “Twinkies” comment on the Sedins. No one has more respect than I do. It is term used for Twins.
