This is a familiar script. Former coach Mike Keenan took similar umbrage with panelist Matthew Barnaby 18 months back when he called Olli Jokinen a cancer in the locker-room.
“We’re not going to let Jay Bouwmeester or any player on the league be talked about in that manner by a colleague or a peer without challenging it,” King said. “That’s just inappropriate….
“I think he ridiculed him. I think he laughed at him….You bet I’m sticking up for and defending our guy.”
King’s major beef, it seems, is that Peca is a former player, and he’s violating the code by ripping a a one-time opponent.
