Friday Links - Kris Letang Is Taking Crazy Pills

Either Kris Letang is eating his own shit, or he wants out of Pittsburgh in the worst way. The Lightning(s) buy out their Captain. I finally get around to linking something about Aaron Hernandez. And a tribute to Kraftwerk. It's Friday, holmes.

This guy has a bit of a rat face and is fucking insane.
