Gabriel Landeskog is jealous of Shayne Gostisbehere

New, comments

To be fair, who ISN'T jealous of Ghost at this point?

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Gabriel Landeskog has a rough life. He's young, he's Swedish, he's a multi-millionaire professional athlete... and he hasn't scored a goal in nine games. Quite frankly, I don't know how he even has the strength to go on.

Landeskog is almost the anti-Shayne Gostisbehere in that sense. The last time he scored a goal was Feb. 2, nearly a month ago at this point. The last time Gostisbehere scored a goal was just one game ago. And when he's not scoring goals, he's assisting on them; Landeskog, meanwhile has just three assists over the same time frame as Gostisbehere's point streak.

So his envy is understandable - but there's more to it.

When Ghost set the record for rookie defensemen point streaks, Twitter user @Taavettikeijo noticed something funny about his stick:

Which prompted this response:

Since this tweet, Landeskog has put up two of his aforementioned three assists, and that's it.

Maybe he should start putting Gostisbehere's name on his stuff.
