Two former Maple Leafs near and dear to our hearts, Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski, have issued a challenge to two member of Maple Leafs management that are not quite as endearing, Randy Carlyle and Dave Nonis.

Recently you might have seen a lot of NHL players, executives, and other members of the community doing something called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. What is that you ask? Well, it's an awareness/fundraising activity:

The challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to raise ALS awareness. Those who refuse to take the challenge are asked to make a donation to the ALS charity of their choice.

Beverly, Mass., resident Pete Frates, started the "Ice Bucket Challenge" with his family on the social sites Facebook and Twitter.  Frates, 29, has lived with ALS since 2012, and he has worked with The ALS Association's Massachusetts Chapter.  A former Division 1 college athlete with Boston College Baseball, Frates tirelessly spreads awareness of Lou Gehrig's Disease.

So far it's been fun and between friends however it took Nikolai Kulemin and Mikhail Grabovski to make this challenge amazing. Let's hope Nonis and Carlyle play along and post a similar video.

Twitter really, really, really loves this video btw
