I must say, Auger is not one of the more respected NHL officials, so more than a few people are willing to believe Burrows’ side of this story. But Burrows also has more than a tinge of agitation to his game, so he doesn’t get many breaks, either.
Here are the takes from two different sources at the rink today, none of them current Blue Jackets players.
One: “Good for Auger. That little rat bast*** Burrows got exactly what he deserved. That’s stuff used to happen all the time in the league, but player wouldn’t go whining about it in public. It just shows how little respect some of the new players have for that part of the game.”
Two: “That kind of stuff has been going on for years. I can’t believe he’d be so stupid to tell the player about it before the game, but I could see it. Because it’s Auger, I could see it.”
added 4:40pm, from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,
Alex Burrows, Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis and NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell will have a hearing via conference call Tuesday afternoon as the league begins an investigation into the accusation one of its referees had a personal vendetta which spilled over into Monday’s Canucks game.
The hearing is scheduled to start after the Canucks finish their practice in Minnesota (scheduled for 3:30 PST).
