No Love For Domi

from the Edmonton Journal,
Toronto tough guy Tie Domi played his 1,000th game Friday night in Buffalo and the outpouring of misty-eyed emotion was unstoppable. Not from Domi, although he can produce plenty o' tears -- particularly crocodile ones -- when the occasion warrants. This is a man who made his living with his fists and his bizarrely unnatural ability to absorb punches to the head, both skills he has been happy, if not gleeful, to demonstrate at the flick of an eyelash since he entered the NHL in the 1989-90 season. One of his more memorable schticks may have been a teary mea culpa to the media a few years back after he delivered a cheap-shot elbow to the head of then-New Jersey defenceman Scott Niedermayer during the Stanley Cup semifinals. An act which got him suspended. That was vintage Domi, invoking his young son, blubbering that the action was out of character, on and on. It wasn't.
