Yes, that’s Ryan Ellis asking for a trade. But not the Ryan Ellis who plays for the Preds – despite the fact that he’s holding the Stanley Cup in his profile picture.
I’m sure you see where this was going.
Hockey fans (who may or may not be familiar with NASCAR driver Ryan Ellis) saw his “request” for a trade and, not realizing that it’s not the Ryan Ellis who has 9 points in 21 games for the Preds this season, understandably had a collective heart attack.
Now as a Preds fan myself, I’ve got to admit I find the whole thing pretty amusing. (But I’m also a NASCAR fan so I’m familiar with the not-the-Preds Ryan Ellis). And let’s be honest, Preds fans haven’t had much to cheer for this season with the team currently sitting in 6th place in their division and two of their best players now on the sidelines.
So a little bit of humor in a tough season? I’m all for it.
Apparently some people just like to watch the world burn.
