Basically Strachan said that Kariya and Selanne didn't dismiss reports in training camp that they would join Forsberg in Modo(it was rumored then as well).As for the Granato and Tocchet thing they had an altercation/yelling match after some game about twenty witnesses.
Of all hockey analysts, I have the most respect for JD. Bob McKenzie and John McKeicie are 2nd and 3rd. None of those guys spread rumors unless they know them to be fact.
The Modo rumor is from a swedish newspaper with all the cred of the National Inquirer.
Coaches fighting? Co-Workers can disagree. No news here.
The Habshide (sp?) rumor is interesting. For the people that don't know, he coaches the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL, and they are a powerhouse team. Last season they demolished the competition in the WHL. It looked like an NHL team playing peewee players. I can see that happenin.
That was the best thing I've seen in a while. Did you see the look on Burke's face when Ron tried to suck up ( which he does well ), and say the Strachen was trying to say that " Burke was worth 2 million dollars "......that was great
that brian burke roasting of strachan was beautiful.. it wouldve been even better if al was there at the time.. physically.. next to burke.. i somehow can picture strachan's head popping off like a bottle of champagne or something after burke squeezes with increasing intensity
You probably didn't understand what they said.
Let me elaborate.
Forsberg is going for sure. That was announced yesterday.
Kariya and Selanne MIGHT go, but very unlikely.
Salo will be going to Modo on the other hand.
Unless you know Forsberg personally and he told you this himself, I fail to see how a bunch of rumours mean that Forsberg is doing anything for sure. If you're basing this on the innane ramblings of Strachan or the less than fully credible reporting of Swedish newspapers, I would suggest that you can't claim it's as absolute as you believe it to be.
not saying it won't happen; just saying that we don't know that it will
