Jalen Ramsey Takes Shots On The Ice To Prove NHL Players Wrong That He Could Make League In 6 Months (VIDEO)
Before the start of the 2018 NFL season, an article was published that had the entire NFL talking, because it featured Jalen Ramsey talking massive amounts of trash towards certain quarterbacks in the league.
He also had something to say about the NHL, when he boldly stated he could crack the NHL with just six months of training. Current NHL stars found that to extremely disrespectful.
“I think it’s insulting to our league,” Buffalo Sabres star Jack Eichel told Emily Kaplan of ESPN. “For us as players, we’ve dedicated our lives to be playing in the NHL. To think after six months you could come play arguably one of the hardest sports in the world? I mean, I think it’s ridiculous he would say that. It’s ignorant.”
“It’s funny to me,” Kreider said. “I think he’s an unbelievable athlete, but skating is a skill set unto itself – just like running is, just like swimming is. Think of someone who has never swam before. If you’ve never been in the water before, no matter how good of an athlete you are, chances are, you’re not going to be an Olympic-caliber swimmer in six months.”
Months later, the Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback began to back up his words by taking some shots on the ice while draped in a Nashville Predators jersey.
It must be noted that he did not have skates on, mainly because he doesn’t know how to skate.
Even though he'd never skated before, @jalenramsey said he could play in the NHL after training for 6 months.
NHL players didn't buy it.
