Survive This

August 6, 2009

– This has the potential to be either really, really funny or not end well at all.

Essentially, “Survivorman” Les Stroud is going to give current and former NHLers a copy of his book and a brief survival class before turning them loose on the Canadian wilderness for a weekend. The event is a fundraiser for a local arena. Current Sabres Chris Butler and Steve Montador are scheduled to participate, as are former Sabres Brad May and Andrew Peters.

The league is worried about players hurting themselves at Olympic training camps, but there’s nary a peep about these Survivormen in training. How does that work? And while we’re ripping off Discovery reality shows, I’d love to see NHLers on Deadliest Catch. That could be borderline hysterical, watching big bad NHLers go up against those gnarly, wizened sea captains.

– Also, new Sabres defenseman Joe DiPenta is blogging for The Hockey News.
