I’m a huge fan of all things “mic’d up.” I would pay an ungodly sum to get all the players mic’d up and watch/listen to games on HBO, uncensored. Last night Zac Rinaldo rocked a mic, and didn’t change his behaviour, which is fun for the rest of us.

I know his type – the tough guy who tells you every game just how DEAD he’s going to make you – and grew to find them hilarious. Your best bet is to ignore them, but I think Phil Kessel went with a sharp “No you’re not” retort. GOT ‘IM.

By the way: please don’t get too sensitive about this (“But head shots!“). Hockey’s a tough game, and attempts at intimidation are a real thing. They aren’t going anywhere.
