Monday FTB: Hockey culture is messed up

This has been a pretty dark year for many people, but it’s also not been a bright ray of sunshine for the hockey world. Some of these happened in 2019, technically, but close enough to now that they fall within the last 12 months:

  • This happened in November 2019, so not technically in 2020, but recent enough I wanted to include: that whole Don Cherry thing.
  • Akim Aliu and his history of dealing with racism, namely from Bill Peters.
  • Mike Babcock’s mind games with Mitch Marner.
  • Brendan Leipsic essentially getting kicked out of the league when his toxic DMs on teammates and their significant others came out.
