Oilers grabbing Steve MacIntyre off waivers signals return of neanderthal hockey

EDMONTON - To goon or not to goon? That was the question.

The answer is Steve Smackintyre.

The Smack is back! After striking out twice here before, Steve MacIntyre — who proved conclusively that he not only can’t play the game, but that he can’t skate well enough to get close enough to most guys to even body check them — is back to flail and fail again.

“Second-line centre,” quipped coach Dallas Eakins when asked about the acquisition of MacIntyre off waivers.

The reference of course was to the loss of Sam Gagner with a broken jaw as a result a stick in the face from Vancouver Canucks’ Zack Kassian Saturday.

edit : poor guy...
