John Saunders throws his support behind the Flyers

On The Sports Reporters this morning on ESPN, John Saunders talked in his closing statement on the show about great athletes that never won a sports championship in their sport, naming men such as Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing. After giving those examples, Saunders said that Roenick is nearing the end of his career and is one of the greatest men in recent NHL history to never win the Stanley Cup. He also said that anyone who ever rooted for great men who never won a championship should root for the Flyers to win the Stanley Cup, because Jeremy Roenick deserves to finally taste the victory of being on a Stanley Cup winning team.

They actually spoke very highly of hockey, which surprised me.

Yep, I loved Mitch Albom's closing statement about the NHL playoffs being the best 2 month period for sports and saying that the NHL playoffs are the most dramatic playoffs in professional sports.

He said that??? The man is such a freakin' hyprocrite, he totally ignores the Devils and Islanders completely and only talks about the Rangers when there is opportunity to bash them.

THe NFL is by far the most entertaining sport during the regular season (every game means something), but nothing can touch the intensity and entertainment value of playoff hockey.

No. He didn't. It was Mitch Albom of the Detroit Free Press that said it.

Lupica would never say it.

Mitch made his closing remarke about hockey.
Then when Saunders did his, also about hockey, Lupica actually interrupted him with some snide comments along the lines of "stop telling who to root for in hockey". Saunders looked a tad annoid.

Lupica is a complete idiot. Everyone knows that. Why he still has a job writing about sports other then tennis is beyond me.

For what it's worth, John Saunders played collegiately at Western Michigan, although I see what you're getting at regarding the other panel members and the NHL.

It's easy. If he's got nasty ears not unlike a Vulcan, it's Albom.

If it's rambling nonsense, it's Lupica.

The fact that they actually talked about hockey at all (without it being a Marty McSorley-Donald Brashear or Todd Bertuzzi-Steve Moore incident, of course!) surprises me!
