Afternoon Line

From Adam Proteau’s mailbag at The Hockey News:

[To:] Adam,
I was wondering if Cristobal Huet would return to Montreal after he is a free agent in July? [...]
Dianne B., Ottawa, Ont.

[To:] Dianne,
The only way Huet returns to Montreal is if Carey Price quits hockey to join a Zen Buddhist retreat, and Jaroslav Halak receives an eight-year, $80-million restricted free agent offer from Kevin Lowe in the off-season.

added 5:03pm, We had two Morning Lines, so why not two Afternoon Lines…

from Adrian Dater at All Things Avs,

He blew up at me several times, probably the biggest being after I wrote of his also-legendary incident when he smashed up the office of Bob Hartley in 1999, in Anaheim.

Roy smashed up Hartley’s office with his goalie stick, after being pulled briefly in a game, one in which the Avs won but Roy didn’t get credit for the victory. The Avs did a good job of keeping it quiet, but a few days later I got word of it and wrote about it. Roy not only came after me, he went on a kind of witch hunt around the team as to who leaked it. A few people were falsely accused, and it was a full-blown circus in the locker room for a while.
