Video- Glenn Healy Not Impressed With Ference Goal Salute

What do you think?

added 11:44pm, from the CP at The Hockey News,

Such a gesture usually incurs fine or even a suspension from the NHL, but Ference said it was unintentional.

‘‘I just saw it and I know it looks really bad, but I can assure you that is not part of who I am,’’ said Ference. ‘‘I apologize.

‘‘That is not part of my repertoire. My glove got caught up there.’‘

The real question is, what did Jack Edwards think?

anyone who has worn hockey gloves knows that a finger or two can get caught up when you clench a fist. So I am not quite sure you can prove it either way.  I got to hope that the dude wouldn’t blatantly lie, and I would like to belive him, but go figure, in Montreal he will probably have to show up in court for it

He didn’t try to decapitate anyone, so a single game suspension is out of order. They’ll give him 20, because this league makes no sense.

And send him to a psychiatrist. Ference should have just speared somebody in the junk so the fine would be less money, too.

Sheesh… What a pile of b.s. If it is not in one’s repertoire then one would never be seen doing it.

The best laugh I’ve had in a while!  I suppose he should have blown kisses like Jumbo Joe?

Moving on…

Anything that enrages Glenn Healy makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Ference is a stand up guy and probably did not do that intentionally. This is a total non-story.

Suck it up, Habs fans. You’re so friggin’ arrogant there isn’t a sane person alive that doesn’t want to shake Ference’s hand after that gesture.
