If Not for Hockey

New, 194 comments

Recently the hockey world learned that goaltender Carey Price kicks ass at rodeo stuff. If not for hockey, it definitely seems like Price could make a decent living as a rodeo superstar - and he would probably be on Versus just as much, if not more.

This story got me thinking - if not for hockey, what would other hockey players do for a living? Using a combination of my patented time machine technology with the Sliding device featured in NHL Sliders, I've been able to find out for you. Today I will reveal what jobs different current and former NHL players would have...If Not for Hockey.

Dan Boyle- If not for hockey, Dan Boyle would be an actor. On the ice he's a force both on offense on defense, and these skills will translate well to the silver screen. He has the uncanny ability to portray both hobbit-like heroes and seductive super-villains.

Ryane Clowe - Renaissance Faire Signe Paintere.

Corey Perry - Bitch.

Logan Couture - Thanks to his little brother Judson, I know that Logan's pretty good at baseball. If not for hockey, he could do that.

Chris Pronger - That one high-school teacher everybody fucking hates.

Patrick Marleau - Assistant librarian.

Alex Ovechkin - Russian mafia hit-man, then President of Russia.

Dany Heatley - Cautionary example.

Wayne Gretzky - World's greatest grocery bagger.

Kent Huskins - Based on his demonstrated hockey talent, I think he'd make a good mediocre baseball player, mediocre insurance salesman, or mediocre fast-food worker.

Niclas Wallin -Chef*.

Antero Niittymaki - Editor in charge of correcting/causing typos.

Marcel Goc - Novelist.

Douglas Murray - Hotel manager - this is actually Douglas' true passion in life. Why do you think he got that degree from Cornell?

Ryan Getzlaf - Hair Club for Men spokesman.

Scott Nichol - A little wise-guy who gets beaten up by the hero in a detective movie.

Sidney Crosby - A waiter you want to smack in the face.

Joe Pavelski - Is "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" a job?

Joe Thornton - Gay porn actor.

Sean Avery - Gay porn critic.

Gary Suter - Frankenstein.

Jack Johnson - Musician.

Bryan Marchment - Murderer.

Owen Nolan - Owner and manager of Owen Nolan Bowlin'.

Mike Grier - Football player. Because he comes from a big football family and is a huge fan, and as a demonstrably skilled athelete it would be a natural fit. Not because he's black, you terrible racist. You should be ashamed.

Jonathan Cheechoo - Lottery winner.


That's all for now. Have any good suggestions? Leave them in the comments.
