Happy New Year from Nicky and Ovi!

My take: these two are common law married.

CHANGE MY MIND!

Hockey Players and Their Likely Reactions to RPF About Them

Evgeni Malkin – Annoyed when people write him as a bottom

Gabriel Landeskog – Proud of how many people have written about him

Alexander Ovechkin – Thinks it’s hilarious, brags about it

Nathan McKinnon – Blushes

Sidney Crosby – Refuses to own a computer, makes his agent block all fanfic sites on his phone so he can’t be tricked into clicking a link

Auston Matthews – Annoyed

Mitch Marner – Thinks it’s hilarious that Auston is annoyed, sends him links constantly

Jamie Benn – Confused, endlessly embarrassed that the Bunching Mox tweet now means everyone thinks he’s gay

Jordie Benn – Thinks it’s hilarious, keeps sending Jamie screenshots that reference the Bunching Mox tweet

Tyler Seguin – Has jacked off at least once to fic about himself

Claude Giroux – Utterly indifferent, but likes that people think his suits are hideous

Andrew Shaw – “Hell yeah people want to think about me having sex”

Jonathan Toews – Bewilderment

Patrick Kane – Reluctantly gets it

I can see this

Media: Can you believe Ovi is now the oldest player on the team?

Backstrom:

*deadpan* Yeah, I can. *laughs* No, I just think it’s so cool that he got his own cereal.

Media:

Have you tried it?

Backstrom:

No, I haven’t tried it. But I asked him if he could bring some, because my kids want some. So, hopefully I’ll get it for free.

Media:

Nick, going back to Ovi– oldest guy on the team you know.

Backstrom:

*laughs* What’s that? Yeah, yeah.

Media:

Going back to him, speaking to him earlier, he said you guys had been together since day one. What does your friendship with him mean to you?

Backstrom:

It means a lot. I mean, I think he, he’s been, he meant a lot for me, especially the first couple years. Took me under his wing… and then, when we got older, I took him under my wing. *smiles* No, it means a lot, he’s a great guy, he’s so funny, I think… there’s never a boring day around that guy. It’s just the way he is.

Media:

What did you say when you saw him after the bicycle accident?

Backstrom: *heavy sigh* The first thing I asked him, “did you wear a helmet?” He said, “yeah.” So… that’s Ovi. *laughs* Summer with Ovi.

Media:

Has anyone, has a player ever gotten him so bad as the bicycle accident got him?

Backstrom:

No, I think that was the worst I’ve seen him. *laughs* He’s gotta be careful. He should maybe just stick to hockey, right?

Holy shit, Nick cannot stop smiling fondly and laughing while talking about Ovi for the a good chunk of his media day interview.
