Rishaug and The Yak

I was just watching some interviews of the team today and Ryan Rishaug asked all of Yak, Krueger, and Horcoff all questions about Yaks celebration. I get the feeling that Rishaug has a great distaste for the celebrations, are they really a problem?

Rishaug can distort it all he wants. He's gonna get the same answer.

From last night:

Ryan Rishaug ‏@TSNRyanRishaug

IMO, Fine with Yakupov celebration. Considering the tension and emotion of that game. Almost any other situation itís overkill, not there.

Does this interview make you beleive Rishaug is fine with the celebration?

http://video.oilers.nhl.com/videocen...195926&lang=en

Whether or not you can pick out his voice.

Rishaug starts in at 1:10

Also the Kreuger and Horcoff video he asks them about the celebration

I still don't understand why so many dumbass's are focusing on the celebration and not the goal itself. Doesn't make any sense to me.

Rishaug was pretty much grilling Yak last night in the post game.

When Tencer of all people is the one that has to re-focus back on the actual game, and away from annoying and repetive questions - you know Rishaug obsessing and needlessly fixating on it.

Ha! I just came here to start this same thread myself. Rishaug is really pissing me off with how hard he's trying to make a story out of this. And it's not the first time, either. He ran the same BS about Yakupov during the prospects camp, and then again during the short week of camp before the season started. He's apparently got a personal problem with the kid. It's pathetic.

He had a night to sleep on. The guy has been trying to stir the pot with Yak since the rookie camp. I think the guy is a D-bag. I think he thinks he's more important than he is.

I don't know. My take is, he's personally fine with it, but realizes the Yak celebration is a big story. It's what everyone is talking about. Obviously he's going to ask about it after the game and even the next day. It's his job.

Just wait until next year when we buy out Horcoff and give 10 to YAK!

He works for TSN, he is suppose to ask these questions as a member of the media, this celebration can be viewed as controversial therefore he was only doing his job.

"...its not normal here for that to happen..." - Ryan Rishaug

Classy guy this Ryan Rishaug, really classy...


Somehow, if a Canadian or an American celebrated with that much enthusiasm it would have been labelled as "good for the game and the fans"...

Zero doubt about it....

People blowing this way out of proportion. I don't see the supposed hate toward Yakupov from Rishaug.

Between his insinuations that other rookies had issues with Yakupov during the summer development camp, and his transparent attempt to create drama from the Belanger interview, there is definately an issue there.

Truly pathetic when a celebration in a sport that's meant to ENTERTAIN us, the viewing public and fans, has is being seen as "controversial". At that moment, from that guy, in a tight game against the defending SC champs, given all other circumstances, I loved it. It's 2013, not 1913. Time to get with the times. Plus, he's Russian. Culturally they're different over there. Philosophy wise, sports wise, everything... it's just different.

Exactly. EVERYONE is talking about the celebration. Rishaug just happens to be based in Edmonton so he can directly ask the players and coaches. I think he's one of the better and more likeable guys on TSN.

If you want to be mad at someone for their reaction to this then talk about guys like Mike Johnson and Steve Ludzik. Or save your anger for Saturday night when Don Cherry gives his thoughts on Yakupov.

A proper journalist would have waited to see if there actually was any outrage and then reported that if it occurred. Instead, Rishaug and co. have gone round the league desperately looking for someone to say something negative in order to justify the claim that it was in fact controversial. (Pro journalism tip: if you ask enough people any single question, you'll find that eventually there will be some disagreement.)

I'm reminded of when I worked for the U of A student paper a million years ago and the news editor needed to fill space, so he did a story on a secret door in Cameron Library. He interviewed librarians and everything. Asked them where it went and why it was hidden. Their responses were things like, "All the doors are exactly where they're supposed to be." They had no idea what he was talking about. He had, in fact, just completely made it up. But he got enough copy to fill a page (with the help of a rather large photo of an empty hallway in Cameron). I loved that guy. Even as a kid he knew what a crock the media is and lampooned it every chance he got, even if he was the only one who got the joke.

Yakupov celebration piece from Sportscentre today. http://*******/W5sFDd

http://video.tsn.ca/?dl=pipe42/latest/1/0/851821/clip/0

I know Bob Stauffer suggests the Belanger could be a better team guy...is it surprising that Belanger what a fan of it? Belanger said something to the effect of Yak probably won't do it again....we shall see about that one

I used to like Rishaug, but his issues with Yakupov are really starting to bug me.

I really want one also but if they buy out Horcoff this summer, I am sure Yaks switches to #10. I am not saying they should buy out Horcoff, I am simply saying they might.

Rishaug was doing a piece about the celebration for TSN. Obviously hes going to ask everyone about it.

Holy overreaction.

Rishaug is a ******, he is one of the weakest reporters around, should be working for Shaw or NAIT TV. His questions are brutal unless he has a script. Simply can only ask a question, doesn't listen to the players answers just moves to the next question. Can't stand him after a football game. But if you want an update on the sidelines, when he can practice for quite a while is good, he can't conduct an interview.

His ideal interview is Ryan Smyth. cliches
