Jason Gregor shares a wonderful story over at Oilers Nation about the Oilers’ days training in Jasper, Saskatchewan. There’s a lot of regular-ol’ hockey talk, but then there’s also the heartwarming tale of Dustin Penner’s desire to scare the living piss out of all of his teammates.
And that’s where you get the No. 1 sure-fire untoppable Quote of the Year, at least until Sean Avery says something about a Sportsnet anchor.
“I dressed up as the guy from Saw. I was grocery shopping at Save On Foods and saw the mask at the check out counter. It was $14.99, but when I swiped my card I got it for $13.99. I couldn’t afford not to buy it,” said Penner.
I mean, how do you top that?
The reactions reportedly ranged from the understandable (Ethan Moreau flat out tried to strangle him) to the hilarious (Ladislav Smid screaming for roommate Denis Grebeshkov, “Grebby, Grebby, help!”).
That Dustin Penner is a real yukkster. An overpaid yukkster, but a yukkster nonetheless.
