NHL Statement On The Incident In Chicago Last Night

NEW YORK (Feb. 18, 2018) – "Last night in Chicago, individuals directed racial taunts and abuse at Washington Capitals player Devante Smith-Pelly," said NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. "The National Hockey League condemns this unacceptable and reprehensible behavior. The League fully supports the actions taken by the United Center and the Blackhawks to eject the offenders and would expect the same response to any similarly unacceptable behavior at any of our arenas.

"While this incident was isolated in nature, no player, coach, official or fan should ever have to endure such abuse at one of our games. The League will take steps to have our clubs remind all stakeholders that they are entitled to enjoy a positive environment - free from unacceptable, inappropriate, disruptive, inconsiderate or unruly behaviors or actions and may not engage in conduct deemed detrimental to that experience."

Morning Line- Bob Murray

“I’m not a rental fan. I’ve never been a rental fan. The last couple of things we’ve done, I’ve ended up signing the guys because we’ve liked them. But are there things out there? Apparently. I know what’s out there. I know the price tags teams are asking for right now. And I’m not interested.”

-Bob Murray, GM of the Anaheim Ducks.  Eric Stephens of the OC Register has more.

The Dynasty Is Dead In Chicago

from Barry Rozner of the Chicago Daily-Herald,

Little thought is given to what's occurred the past 10 years on West Madison, no pause for reflection, hardly a memory of what the previous two decades resembled, hardly a memory of what it feels like to escape the abyss, breathe clean air and celebrate a generation of excellence.

Not that long ago -- relatively speaking, and especially for any who lived through the misery -- this was the worst franchise in all of sports, but under Rocky Wirtz it has become one of the very best in every imaginable way, using any imaginable metric.

It has been a heck of a run and worth a few moments to celebrate before taking a match to all of it.

All good teams must come to an end. It is the eternal way of things.

Video- Don’t Even Call These People Fans After An Incident In The Chicago Blackhawks Game

from Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post,

 Washington Capitals forward Devante Smith-Pelly went to the penalty box after a fight 8:36 into the third period Saturday night at United Center, and four fans sitting against the glass of the box chanted “Basketball, basketball, basketball!” at him, according to a team spokesman. Smith-Pelly is black.

Smith-Pelly reacted, confronting the fans through the glass while holding his stick. An off-ice official sitting next to him in the penalty box notified building security, and the fans were kicked out of the arena. Smith-Pelly didn’t speak with reporters after Washington’s 7-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

“There’s absolutely no place in the game of hockey or our country for racism,” Capitals Coach Barry Trotz said after the game. “I think it’s disgusting, and there’s no place for it. Athletes in our country don’t deserve that. It just shows ignorance.”
