Today Detroit radio listeners are getting a treat. First Peter Karmanos (see earlier post today) and now Aaron Ward on WDFN. Ward mentioned OLN is so pro Oilers. He mentioned he didn't know if Doc Emrick had enough time to take off his Buffalo Jersey to put on his Edmonton jersey.
Funny, I really didn't notice much favoritism last night.
Ward said he arrived at the arena yesterday at 4pm and the parking lot was one big party. A different type of crowd, but still fun.
Aaron mentioned he did not think the penalty shot call last night was justified. Claims the Canes dman never closed his hand on the puck, just pushed it along with his fingertips.
Ward said he was talking to Devorsky during the goalie change last night, Ward thinking the media would be all over the Canes for running Roloson. Devorsky told him that it was Bergeron who caused the collision and Ward mentioned the Oilers did a class move in the post-game by mentioning that and putting any controversy to rest.
Special note to Detroit area fans- Aaron was asked about coming back to Detroit since he is an UFA after this season. He said he did not think he could live in the same city as Art Regner. He said Regner is not the hockey authority that people think he is.
