Jim Playfair loses his shiznit

http://www.masslive.com/sports/index...air_of_ah.html

ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia (AP) Abbotsford Heat coach Jim Playfair says that while is not proud of the stick-breaking tantrum that got him fined by the American Hockey League, he won't apologize for it.

"It isn't my proudest moment for sure," he said Monday. "It's not to the point where it's embarrassing." The amount of the fine was undisclosed.

Playfair, a former NHL player and coach of the Calgary Flames, was upset after one of his players was given a 5-minute penalty and game misconduct Saturday by referee Jamie Koharski for running into Hamilton's goalie. Koharski is the son of retired NHL official Don Koharski, who was involved in one of the NHL's most infamous tirades. The coach tore of his suit jacket, stood on the bench and smashed two sticks over the boards, throwing the pieces on the ice. Playfair said his own children have shown him the video "20 or 30 times."

"I can't take it back. I can have you check my history and it's just not something I do consistently. It's not a motivational tool. It's something that happened in the heat of the moment."

From that limited angle, it looks like it was probably a terrible call anyway.

I saw the video already and thought it was hilarious.
I am shocked that he was pissed at a Jamie Koharski call
Jamie Koharski is arguably the worst ref in the AHL. he will only get to the NHL level based on his last name. he sucks.

Now that was funny! The two players on the left, don't even acknowledge what is happening. They just keep looking straight forward. Even after playfair grabs one of their sticks!

I dunno, I probably hate Nygel Pelletier more.
