Good reason not to watch Versus. All they'll talk about is Crosby through the whole game and then he'll get hit and then Milbury will rant and walk off the set and Keith Jones will call it a travesty....
Standing in the crowd recently at the Ice Sports Forum in Brandon, waiting for an autograph from Lightning star Steven Stamkos as he came off the ice after practice, was Diane Boyle, mother of former Tampa Bay D Dan Boyle.
"For my grandson," Diane said of Sylvain, 13. "His second-favorite player is Stamkos."
His favorite, of course, is Dan Boyle, who was a huge part of the Lightning's 2004 Stanley Cup run but now plays for the Sharks.
Diane and husband, Roger, live in Ottawa but stay about four months a year in their Clearwater condo. Diane said they consider the Tampa Bay area "our home away from home." Sounds as if Dan does as well.
"He loves it there," Diane said of her son's San Jose home, "but he misses Tampa."
Should make for a few interesting games this year with him behind the bench.
That specific incident led to the longest NHL suspension (to that point). 21 games.
Also, from wiki:
His notoriety continued after his retirement. In July 2006, Hunter was arrested and charged with DUI. The charges were dropped when the presiding judge ruled that his rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms were violated for unlawful detention and being denied his right to his attorney.
In September 2005, Hunter was suspended by the Ontario Hockey League for 4 games after a player left the bench to initiate a fight in an exhibition game.
On January 20, 2006, Hunter was suspended for 2 games and his team was fined $5,000 for Hunter's off ice abuse of the officials. In May 2006, Hunter was fined $5,000 by the OHL for criticizing officials after the Knights were eliminated from the playoffs in 4 straight games. In September 2006, Hunter was suspended by the OHL for 2 games after forward Matt Davis left the bench to engage in a fight during a game; OHL rules state that there is an automatic suspension for both the player and the coach if a player leaves the bench to become involved in an altercation.
