Charlie Lindgren apparently marked earlier in the season that he and Darcy Kumper are two of the more normal goalkeepers in the league. Those are some bold words coming from a guy with a Monopoly man mustache. Now Kuemper is here to pull the goalie pairings down further Not unusual for 60 statistics
in favor of the capitals W Magazine In the issue, the team released a scathing quote from Kuemper, which might give you pause when you consider the team is paying him tens of millions of dollars.
After winning the Stanley Cup, Kuemper’s next long-term goal is a little more sinister. He wants to bring back the dinosaurs.
Darcy Kuemper with some lofty goals

“Jurassic Park was one of my favorite movies growing up, so I think that would be great,” Kuemper said. “I’m not sure how to do it yet, but I’ll figure it out.”
I both love and hate Darcy’s confidence here.
For those unfamiliar with Jurassic Park, the plot is about a billionaire (people you can always trust) John Hammond, who obtains prehistoric DNA. Hammond makes the logical conclusion to bring back the dinosaurs and open a theme park.
The first to tour the facility are a select group of scientists who are both surprised and suspicious of the idea. Hammond goes on and on about how Jurassic Park is safe. Then about 90 minutes into the movie, we all learn that dinosaurs can surpass the best of human technology, and Oh no, now the T-Rex is free.
Kumper watched and said to himself I want this. And if he’s a movie buff, he’s probably seen the other six Jurassic Park movies, all of which explore the delicate and dangerous relationship between dinosaurs and humans.
I think if you choose to have your profession constantly exposed to hard rubber pieces, this sounds like a fun idea.
In any case, please no one sell Darcy any prehistoric DNA.
