An image from the Check, Please! webcomic. Bitty is sitting on a park bench and having a conversation with Shitty. Shitty: “Jesus Christ, we’re your [word redacted] teammates! Your friends!

An image from the Check, Please! webcomic. There are three different panels featuring different images of Jack and Kent together. The narrator says: But wait, wait, go back, So he and our Captain Jack uh…are buds? (Were?) Well, they were a pretty big deal. Like demolishing-all-of-juniors-hockey’s-stats kind of deal. Like patenting the Zimmermann-Parson no-look one-timer kind of deal. I remember hearing rumors about their rumors. One thing’s sure? They were the best pair the hockey world had seen.” From comic 2.8
