McLennan, Lebda

The NHL has suspended Jamie McLennan 5 games.  Whatever.  Of larger concern is the condition of Brett Lebda, who appears to be out for tonite…at least.


Wings defenseman Brett Lebda (concussion, knee?) skated briefly, for a couple of minutes, Sunday morning at the Saddledome. He left the ice limping noticeably. There is no official word from the Wings, but it’s highly unlikely Lebda will play in Game 6 tonight. Kyle Quincey was recalled from Grand Rapids and was scheduled to fly in from Winnipeg, where the Griffins played Saturday night.

Khan(!) also mentions a few comments from Dominik Hasek and his view of last night’s events in Hockeytown.

The always entertaining Hasek then proceeded to blast Calgary for its goon tactics late in the game, calling it an embarrassment to hockey. He blamed Flames captain Jarome Iginla for not only failing to keep his team in control but also joining in the cheap stuff, with his cross-checks to Mathieu Schneider’s hip.

Woops.  Hasek said the NBA-like performance of Calgary’s “captain” was an embarrassment to hockey.  Hmmm…I guess that means Hasek’s a San Diego native, or perhaps from Toledo?

Back to what matters and that’s Lebda.  Kyle Quincey in the definition of hostile territory tonite?  Trouble.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
