Afternoon Line

“I think with the diving, with the embellishment, I think it really detracts from the game. The players that were on the competition committee felt the same way. There’s really strong sentiment from both sides to do something about it.”

“I think they’re incumbent upon us to put in place. It’s not about really embarrassing the player, it’s about making it a better game.”

“It can become a bit of an epidemic. We want to make sure that it’s something that we can make the players know who’s doing it and I think they’d feel guilty about it.”

When I told Paul about this story I said “Peter Chiarelli (Krejci’s GM)” on purpose. This is pot calling the kettle black, big time.

Here’s your classic Boston lack of self-awareness, starting at the top.  If Julien is the star of “Embellishment City”, what would Chiarelli’s video be called?  “Embarrassment City”?

This is hilarious coming from Boston’s GM.  I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time.
