Nash, a former player and current broadcaster with Fox Sports Arizona, called Torres’ hit on Hossa “as clean of a hit as you’re going to get” during Tuesday’s game.
Since then, Nash has received death threats and a slew of insults via Twitter.
The Blackhawks were upset, as were their fans. Nash, who once played for Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville with the St. Louis Blues, told “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000 in Chicago that he received death threats for calling the play a clean hit. Nash recanted those remarks after viewing more replays of the incident.
I am glad to hear Nash recanted from his original call and I can understand he probably got caught up in the play. Watch the original call from the Phoenix broadcast crew if you missed it last night.

“You have to love the Twitter world,” Nash told “The Waddle and Silvy Show” Wednesday morning on ESPN 1000. “I had a few people mentioning they’ll be meeting me for breakfast, so we’ll see how that goes.”
The Coyotes won 3-2 in overtime, and lead the series 2-1. Game 4 is Thursday night in Chicago.
Nash said he told Coyotes personnel about the threats.
“I mentioned it to our guy,” Nash said. “It’s fine, it’s fine. It is what it is.”
from Jim Gintonio of the Arizona Republic,
Tyson Nash, who has not played in the NHL since his two-season stint ended with the Coyotes in 2006, will get a tryout next month with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
“I’m gonna give it one more last kick at the can,” he said…..
“You know, they’re an older club that wants to win now, and they’re building for today,” he said. “From what I can see out there, they have spots, they want a real competitive training camp, and they’re giving me an opportunity. I’m very appreciative of it.”
It was only the other day that I realized The Hockey News had Jamie McLennan blogging, and then I didn’t get around to reading his posts until today. (Which was quite foolish of me—the guy’s hilarious.) Here’s a sample from his most recent post, talking about his first round playoff experience in Seoul, Korea:
It was a chance for me to visit another country on my world tour and also an opportunity to see if yet another country’s immigration department would challenge the validity of Tyson Nash’s documents.
Although listed in his papers as somewhat human and standing just barely inches above an average countertop, Tyson’s appearance raised some red flags. The Koreans immediately took issue with our team’s approach of transporting him in his custom-made cage with an automatic feeder.
With the cage dimensions being equal to that of a golf bag, the only real issue was why his mouth guard, very badly decayed and barely recognizable, was traveling in a separate case.
