The other night I noticed it while watching Ryan Kesler closely to see if he really is injured.
And while I couldn't tell if there is something actually wrong with either the major or the minor of one of his adductors I did notice the flip-flopping of the boot.
His skate boot that is.
And then I had a look at a whole lotta players, that behemoth Chara included.
And it turns out almost all of them have the flipping and the flopping going on all over the place - especially when they're into that damnable stop-and-start-back-and-forth-fake-soccer-style cycle game.
I dunno if I could even begin to play hockey without about 236 feet of white, 1.5 inch wide surgical tape wrapped around each of my ankles.
