USA Hockey: Are we forgetting someone.

It would appear that leaving Bobby Ryan off of the Olympic hockey team might be a huge mistake.

NHL looking into Coyotes' antics

You had to wonder after listening to some the comments that were made by the Phoenix Coyotes - during post game interviews - if there was going to be repercussions from the NHL. I understand that the refs weren't as good as they could have been.
Pierre LeBrun, ESPN.COM --- The NHL is further investigating the postgame actions and comments of some Phoenix Coyotes players after their season-ending, overtime loss in the Western Conference finals, league executive vice president Colin Campbell told on Thursday.

The league is not pleased with some of what happened after Dustin Penner's overtime winner Tuesday night for the Kings, including Coyotes center Martin Hanzal skating aggressively toward a referee and making a gesture, goalie Mike Smith throwing his stick and Keith Yandle's postgame comment in which he suggested it was no surprise the calls didn't go his team's way given the similar colors of the refs' and Kings' uniforms.

"Their actions were unprofessional and unacceptable," Campbell told
Most of us that watched the games this season during the Stanley Cup Playoffs realize that there have been a lot of questionable calls made on the ice in "all" of the series to date. That being said, there is a level of professionalism that NHL hockey players are supposed to exhibit and some of the Coyotes' post game comments were over-the-top and questionable.

Keith Yandle's puzzling comments

I had to post this video because I couldn't believe my ears the first time I heard it, this is down right silly. The comments by Keith Yandle are almost black helicopter conspiracy theory stuff -  you can't make it up -  it's right here. You can almost imagine secret agents repelling out of a small black helicopter onto the ground in Yandles backyard.

Wow! Wait, What? I mean talk about being classy in the post game comments, the Phoenix Coyotes lost the game and the series against the Kings because they were a step late to the puck all series long, the Coyotes had no answer for the Los Angeles Kings speed trough the neutral zone. One of the strong points that I saw for the  Kings was the way they played a high pressure game, the Kings' fore-check was relentless they were all over the Coyotes every game.

The Coyotes sound like a bunch of whiners

I will be the first one to admit that I hate it when my favorite team loses - that's sports - that's the way the puck bounces sometimes. Last night, the Phoenix Coyotes would have been better off to congratulate the Los Angeles Kings and move on. Instead, the Coyotes failed to take the high road and used their post game press conference/interviews as an opportunity to sound off and blame the officials for the results of their series. In my opinion, the Coyotes came off last night as a bunch of entitlement whiners. I think their post game comments other wise taint an amazing season by the Coyotes.

Bruins sign Canadians stiff Benoit Pouliot

The Boston Globe is reporting this signing by the Boston Bruins. This is the waste of a one year contract and I do not like this pick up by the Boston Bruins one bit. So in essence the Boston Bruins are trading Michael Ryder's roster spot (who signed a free agent deal with the Dallas Stars) for Benoit Pouliot... This deal is a serious head scratcher and I am disappointed with the Boston Bruins front office. It has pretty much been proven that Benoit Pouliot for the most part has been another Minnesota Wild first round bust from the Doug Risebrough days.
Fluto Shinzawa, Globe Staff --- Bruins sign Benoit Pouliot The Bruins have signed Benoit Pouliot to a one-year, $1.1 million contract. RDS was among the first to report the signing.

The 24-year-old was the fourth overall pick in the 2005 draft. Minnesota traded Pouliot to Montreal for Guillaume Latendresse on Nov. 23, 2009.

This past season, Pouliot scored 13 goals and 17 assists in 79 games. Pouliot was a healthy scratch for four games in the first round against the Bruins.

The 2005 draft included Sidney Crosby, Carey Price, Bobby Ryan, Jack Johnson, Marc Staal, Anze Kopitar, Paul Stastny, and Keith Yandle. Framed against those players, Pouliot has been a major disappointment. In 183 games, Pouliot has scored 37 goals and 35 assists. The left-shot forward will be a reclamation project for the Bruins, who like his size (6-foot-3, 199 pounds) and skill.

In Boston, Pouliot is best known for one-punching David Krejci during the regular season. In the playoffs, Pouliot took a run at Johnny Boychuk, which brought Andrew Ference calling.
