I suggest you watch the Torts post game presser.
He addressed that and said it was a mistake, unfair and something he'll always regret.

Steve Simmons.

Hard to believe a guy like that can make a living talking about sports, although I guess with the newspaper going the way of the dodo it won't be much longer.
What did he say?

Thanks YWG, I was just about to post it.

Like I've said, I think Torts is presser was pretty perfect.
He'll be in **** for what he did at intermission, but I thought he handled the press well. He was honest and didn't make excuses about his own short comings.

My two most hated teams in hockey. They could have beat each other into oblivion for all I cared

I saw it, but still think it's inexcusable. It wasn't a quick decision, he had time to think about who to put out there, and puts this poor kid in there over Kassian. Stupid move, he should have known better there, it's common sense.

Really?
I always thought Simmons was an idiot.
This just cemented it.

I agree. And I think he agrees.

I don't know if they'd want Kassian out there for that. He runs pretty hot and could do something really stupid that would get him in big trouble.

Does anyone here know the layout for the Jets and Visitors dressing rooms in the MTS Centre?

Could an opposition coach get near the Jets dressing room?

They would have to walk all the way around the arena but I think it is possible.

Or just enter the jets bench and go down the tunnel.

I think that's actually the only way if they want to get close to the Jets. Through the walkway they'd have to get past all the security, into the Jets area and then go through almost the entire Jets training area to get to the actual dressing room/offices where players and coaches would likely be at intermission. I haven't seen it since the Jets came back though, and they've renovated it.

Looks like in Vancouver the Canucks share that hallway with the opposing locker room, the Canucks players doing interviews during intermission were in that same hallway.

You've got to rub it in, eh?

More importantly, how does his hair look?

It looks quite flowy, which is good considering he's been suffering from some serious diarrhea the past few days.

The Caps sent Grubauer down to the AHL today. He started 14 of the last 20 games for them.

Interesting letter by Oilers owner Katz to the fanbase. Stay the course is the message in Edmonton.
