Things could always be worse

Kids, always remember that no matter how bad things seem, there's always someone worse off than you. Take Patrick Stefan, for example.

After all, what could be more humiliating than flubbing your backhand attempt on an empty net, then watching in horror as the other team skates the puck up ice and ties the game with 2 seconds left to go:

Pretty bad, right? Hard to be more embarrassed than that, isn't it? I mean, there's no way to botch a play any worse, is there?

Well, as it turns out, yes there is:

The good news is, the kid's got a tryout with the Stars...they're looking for someone who can score on an empty net.

Here in Edmonton we call that the "Janne Niinimaa"
He did the same damn thing at a home game somewhere circa 1999-2000. Against Montreal I believe. Ugh.
