To second biscuithead, unless the dumb talking heads on radio Sportstalk start spouting it as gospel, they don't even need to shoot down the tinfoil hat crowd trashing Legwand. And what they say in public shouldn't be nearly as important to what they say in private.
But it IS important and I only think the dirty laundry should go public AFTER it has been said many times behind closed doors. We don't have the luxury of knowing what is said one-on-one at this point.
That must have been written by the author of their GDT thread over there. What a bunch of whiners. Eaton with a dirty hit? That's a riot. If Vaananen does a better job of absorbing that hit, no one mentions it as dirty. Funny how that works.
How can a reporter say "the hit came after the whistle" when I went back and watched it several times and the whistle came afterwards. Wonder if Eaton could take a little lawsuit action for defaming his name with a false written summary of the play. That was a very 'homer' oriented piece of journalism. The writer should of let it go after their coach said it was just a collison.
Admittedly, I was ashmed of the attendance when I looked around during the national anthem...however, at the start of the third period when I looked around, the arena had filled in pretty nicely for a Thursday night game on a rainy night.
I don't know what the reporter was basing his attendance figure off of, but whatever it was...it was not only disrespectful to the Nashville franchise and fan base, but it was also very unprofessional and careless.
Furthermore, the fact that he writes that Eaton might face retaliation for "his hit after the whistle"...is again very unprofessional and careless. If something does happen in the future, this reporter should be fired and disgraced. His article showed that he cannot write without injecting his own opinions into the his game article. That's truly unprofessional IMO.
I actually already did that. Not one of the gramatically correct, nice little informative ones...but the nasty kind, that looks like a 7th grader wrote. Hah, they are more fun though, especially when you don't figure to get a response.
Trotz gives his version of the "we aren't worthy" bow to Vokoun....
Trotz knows there are a lot of good goaltenders in the NHL and around the world, but he rates Vokoun as the best.
“I wouldn’t take anybody but Tomas,” Trotz said. “He is our MVP so far this year. We have won a lot of games because of him. I know the type of person he is. I know his work ethic. If I had to win a game he would be my goalie. And I really believe that.”

Nice words, but comments like these could really come back to bite us in the *** when we are trying to negoiate a contract extention.
