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.

Bunch of homers doing the reporting for the Denver Post:

Avs take big licking, don't keep on ticking

Quote:
One of the Avalanche's best players was knocked out of the game by a hit to the head after the whistle. Another was likely knocked out for the rest of the season by a questionable hit into the boards.
Quote:
On top of the Avs' curious lack of retaliation in this eye-for-an-eye sport, they lost the game in overtime to the Predators, 4-3 in a half-empty Gaylord Entertainment Center.

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.

Besides defaming our players, they flat out lied about the attendance....the place was not half-empty.

You didn't see our press whining because every time Sakic was on the ice in the first period, the refs called a bogus penalty on us.....yet they could have.

12,057 was the official attendance. I would have guessed more like 13,500 but half full is 8,500 or so-- a bit off the mark.

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.

Not that it would do any good, but someone should bring up some of these points in a scathing e-mail to that d-bag writer.

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.

I did the more professional kind and got a one sentence reply that said "check the tape again...Eaton's hit was after the whistle".

My next response to him wasn't as professional.

Once again, Hawks serve as the appetizer

Quote:
The combined attendance in the first three games the Hawks have played in Nashville is 42,226 with another game in April. That's a lot of tacos.
Predators prey on Hawks goalies

On another note...anyone notice that the Tennessean mispelled Yanic Perreault's last name "Perrault" this morning in a headline?

here's the email I got back from the guy:

"The official "announced" attendance was 12,057. If there were more than 10 grand in that building that night, then my name is now Santa Claus.
Thanks for reading,
AD"

And I replied back:

Dear Santa Claus,

10,000 is still more than half of 17,113...at least last time I checked. Next time try sticking with "reporting" instead of weak, childish jabs.

Wes

Jackets still can’t solve Predators’ power play

The loss was the Jackets’ sixth in their past seven games in Nashville.

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.”

An article on TSN rating the top 10 free agent signings of the 2005-06 NHL season lists Yanic Perreault as the best free agnt signing (value wise).
