Late Saturday Night Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- Don’t know what it is about American hockey coaches but there is this condescending arrogance that comes with Ron Wilson, John Tortorella and Peter Laviolette that somehow Dan Bylsma missed out on.

- If the Calgary Flames are going to move Jarome Iginla and not move goalie, Miikka Kiprusoff, what’s the point? I know it goes against ownership views, which seem rather pointless to me, but they should go hard after a top three draft pick this year and finally begin the process of rebuilding.

- Why doesn’t Steve Yzerman fire his hated coach Guy Boucher in Tampa and replace him with either Lindy Ruff or Jon Cooper?

Hey Steve-O, while I believe he has dual citizenship, Wilson was actually born in Canada. But apparently that “condescending arrogance” is the fault of the States, eh ?

Ouch, someone is still angry over the fact the US has had more success at the WJC the last five years than Canada.

Poor Simmons, the Americans are so mean and arrogant. I will take that over whiny, self riteous and xenophobic any day!

Once again, if you learned to read, my comments are directed to Simmons, not Canada or Canadians. If you want to own Mr. Simmons views as your own and argue they are the views of other Canadians that is your call.
