Afternoon Line

“I find it hypocritical that men who made their money fighting or playing the tough guy are now telling people it shouldn’t be part of the game. I think it’s part of hockey—no one’s ever got killed fighting. I think there’s got to be atonement on the ice. You take a shot at a team’s best player, then you need to pay the price.”

“I honestly can’t stand what’s happening in hockey right now. I don’t think the players know what they can and can’t get away with. I obviously think the players should have more respect for each other when they hit each other, but I saw [NHL head of player safety Brendan] Shanahan suspend a guy two games for high sticking. That’s just crazy. It can’t go on like this.”

Buble Not Happy With Canucks Coaching

from Yvonne Zacharias of the Vancouver Sun,

Crooner Michael Buble is in Los Angeles these days recording a new album set to be released Oct. 15.

But don’t think he hasn’t made time for hockey. The Vancouver native, who is a part owner of the Vancouver Giants, is a huge hockey fan. He watched the Vancouver Canucks in the playoffs, including their 7-5 loss to Chicago in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinal, at his home in the City of Angels.

Q: What did you think?

A: I was disgusted. I have to take you back to Game 4 with a period left where [Alain] Vigneault stopped sending in two guys and started playing the trap. All year, when everyone kept saying, “Fire the coach!”, I kept saying No, he is a good coach. But every time the Canucks were up by one, he started to employ the trap. We should have won this series. I think the Canucks should have gone home up 3-1 and that would have been that. Instead, I think [Vigneault] tried to play a chess match. I don’t think we were beat by a better team ... I think we were out-coached.

A few months ago I was introduced to Michael’s music and was very impressed, glad to know he is a hockey fan too.
