from Chuck Gormley of the Courier-Post,
Flyers assistant coach Craig Berube, a former teammate of Tocchet, believes the NHL’s two-year ban on Tocchet was too harsh.
“He got run through the ringer for no reason, and that puts a bad taste in your mouth,” Berube said Friday. “To me, that was worse than anything. He didn’t do anything wrong, and his picture’s all over the paper. He’s a good guy with a good reputation. The guys who know him know that, and that’s what matters.”...
Flyers defenseman Derian Hatcher said he’s happy to see Tocchet back in the NHL, saying gambling among NHL players is commonplace.
“I’ve bet on Super Bowls and I played football pools in the dressing room,” Hatcher said. “So what? He never bet on hockey, and that’s the important thing. I’ve always respected him, and personally, I’m glad he’s back.”
