That....looks like it would hurt.

The lucky recipient this time was Scott Hartnell, he of the Hartnell Down Foundation, the #1 spot on the Backhand Shelf beerability list, and the 2012 NHL All-Star Game.

The topics we hit with Scott were:

* His excellent season

* The CBA proceedings

* Beerability

Pizzo and I covered the CBA prior to the interviews as well.
