This is the 35th in our summer series in which we are pulling hockey cards at random from a box and then writing about them.
Today we decided to turn to Victory Euro Mats to draw our card from the PBS Dispenser.
He was hesitant to get involved at all, but we reminded him that August 1 is his namesake’s “soft deadline” for picking his new team, and this might be a good way to help the process along. Victory Euro Mats thought that was a great idea, and agreed that whichever card he picked would be the team that real-life Mats would sign with.
There were a lot of teams to choose from:
Victory Euro Mats spent some time swimming in the offers coming from all across the league, and just when we were about to completely lose all interest and give up hope of ever gaining some closure here, he finally drew a card. And frankly, our questions remain just as unanswered as they were before we started. You see, he drew a Dustin Penner card. A Dustin Penner Ducks card.
So which is it, Mats? Ducks? Or Oilers? Wait, you know what? We don’t care.
