Friday Links - Kris Letang Is Taking Crazy Pills

New, comments

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.
