Remembering the 2002 Olympics

The 2002 Winter Olympics were special, and it was the one year where the Olympic results really showed how good a hockey country you were… ok with the exception of Belarus… and you could prolly switch places for the USA, and Russia, but does everyone remember what a fun tournament that was?I was not quite ten yet, and it’s funny, last year, when people were saying Canada didn’t have a chance, I believed we’d win, and I was right, and this year when people said we’d dominate I said we’d lose bad, and we did… being right is very fun, especially when it happens alot.

The final standings were…

Gold – Canada

Silver- USA

Bronze- Russia

4th Belarus

5th Sweden

6th Finland

7th Czech

8th Germany

Now, this really is how I believe countries rank/ranked as hockey countries.

1. Canada

2. Russia

3. USA

4. Sweden

5. Czech

6. Finland

7. Slovakia

8. Swittzerland

So who were those players who played for Canada’s mens hockey team?

91 Joe Sakic (Colorado Avalanche-Colorado Avalanche, Burnaby BC)

GP 6 G 4 A 3 PTS 7

-Sakic had an unbelievable Olympics, and was named tournament MVP, Sakic scored 2 goals in the final game, including the game winner. Sakic is currently still playing with the Colorado Avalanche, and after comming second in the league in points last year, has dropped off a bit, comming 13th ammong Canadians so far. Joe Sakic returned to the Olympics and 2006 as Captain of the team.

66 Mario Lemieux (Pittsburgh Penguins-Retired, Montreal PQ)

GP 5 G 2 A 4 PTS 6

-Mario had a good Olympics, at more then a point per game, and Captained the Olympic team to Gold. Mario missed the bad 5-2 loss to Sweden, but played in the rest of the tournament, including a game against the Czechs (tie 3-3) where he scored twice. Mario is currently retired, and last played for Canada at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.

19 Steve Yzerman (Detroit Red Wings- Detroit Red Wings, Napean ON)

GP 6 G 2 A 4 PTS 6

-Steve was apparently an outstanding leader in the Canada dressing room, and reportedly gave a real touchy feely speech during the games and rallied the troops and got them back on track. Steve Yzerman twice since the Olympics decided to opt out of the Canadian team, including the 2004 World Cup, and the 2006 Olympics.

12 Jarome Iginla (Calgary Flames-Calgary Flames, Edmonton AB)

GP 6 G 3 A 1 PTS 4

-Iginla scored 2 goals in the final game against the US, and was actually a late addition to the Orientation camp. Iginla is still currently playing for the Calgary Flames and played for Canada in the 2004 World Cup, and the 2006 Olympics.

9 Paul Kariya (Anaheim Might Ducks- Nashville Predators, Vancouver BC)

GP 6 G 3 A 1 PTS 4

-Paul Kariya was part of one of Canadas top lines along with Steve Yzerman, and Mario Lemieux. Kariya scored Canada’s first goal in the final game against the USA, and a beauty at that. Kariya has had a bad year since the Olympics (2004) when he played with the Colorado Avalanche, although the other years since then (this year and 2003) have been fine. Oddly enough Kariya’s last 3 years have all been better then the 2002 year he played on the Olympic team, and yet he hasn’t played for Canada since.

21 Simon Gagne (Philadelphia Flyers – Philadelphia Flyers, Ste Foy PQ)

GP 6 G 1 A 3 PTS 4

-Gagne has improved quite a bit since the 2002 Olympics, and has evolved into one of the NHL’s best goal scorers. Gagne, still playing withe Flyers made the 2004 World Cup team, the 2005 World Championship team, and the 2006 World Cup team, and will likely be a key part of team Canada for years to come.

4 Rob Blake (Colorado Avalanche – Colorado Avalanche, Simcoe ON)

GP 6 G 1 A 2 PTS 3

-Blake has been a key part of team Canada for years, and was perfect in 2002, not a single goal was scored well Rob was on the ice. Blake had to pull out of the 2004 World Cup, and returned in 2006 for the Olympic team. Blake is still playing with the Avalanche, and started off with a very slow year this year.

11 Owen Nolan (San Jose Sharks- Free Agent (Toronto Maple Leafs) Thurold ON)

GP 6 G 0 A 3 PTS 3

-Nolan had a solid Olympics playing on a line with Eric Lindros and Ryan Smyth, collecting 3 assists, and adding a key physical presence to Canada’s Olympic effort. Nolan was traded for Alyn McCauley, Brad Boyes, and a 1st rounder to Toronto, he recently was involved in a contract dispute there, and is currently a free agent. Nolan hasn’t played for Canada since.

55 Ed Jovanovski (Vancouver Canuckcs- Vancouver Canucks, Windsor ON)

GP 6 G 0 A 3 PTS 3

-Jovanovski was a solid 5th/6th defenseman for Canada, and has stayed a solid defender for the Canucks ever since. Jovanovski, still with Vancouver, was a member of the 2004 World Cup team as well as the 2005 World Championships, and was selected to the 2006 Olympic team, but pulled out due to injury.

3 Eric Brewer (Edmonton Oilers- St Louis Blues, Vernon BC)

GP 6 G 2 A 0 PTS 2

-Eric was a solid 7th defenseman for Canada at the 2002 Olympics. Brewer was traded to St Louis recently in the Chris Pronger deal, Brewer will likely get alot of consideration for the 2010 Olympic team, and if there’s a 2008 World Cup, that too. Since the Olympics he’s played in the 2004 World Cup, as well as the 2002, 2003, and 2004 World Championships, winning 2 of the 3 Wolrd Championships tournaments.

25 Joe Nieuwendyk (Dallas Stars – Florida Panthers, Whitby Ontario)

GP 6 G 1 A 1 PTS 2

-Nieuwendyk was a solid player for Canada in the 02 Olympics, scoring once against Domonik Hasek and the Czechs for Canada. Since the Olympics Nieuwendyk has been traded to New Jersey, and then has moved to both Toronto, and Florida via free agency. Nieuwendyk has not played in an international tournament since the 02 Olympics.

27 Scott Niedermayer (New Jersey Devils – Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, Cassiar BC)

GP 6 G 1 A 1 PTS 2

-Niedermayer won the 2004 Norris trophy, and was a key player for Canada in the 2002 Olympics. Niedermayer left New Jersey to join his brother Rob in Anaheim in 2005, and won the 2004 World Cup with Canada, he also played in the 2004 World Championships, and was selected to the 2006 Olympic team, but was forced to pull out due to injury.

37 Mike Peca (New York Islanders- Edmonton Oilers, Toronto ON)

GP 6 G 0 A 2 PTS 2

-Peca was a great checker for Canada in the 2002 Olympics, filling a role that Keith Primeau held before him, and Kris Draper fills now. Peca was traded to Edmonton for Mike York in the hectic summer of 2005, and hasn’t played for Canada since the 2002 Olympics.

74 Theoren Fleury (New York Rangers- Belfast Giants (Ireland), Oxbow SK)

GP 6 G 0 A 2 PTS 2

-Theoren took a beating in the 02 Olympics, and had to face some tough calls against him. He was a risk for the team, because of his drug problems, but Wayne Gretzky was willing to take that risk, and now he played a key role for Canada in the Olympics. Fleury has had some off ice troubles since the Olympics, he signed with Chicago, and has been suspended indefinately by the NHL because of violating his probation by going to a strip club with a couple of Blackhawks team mates. Fleury has not played for Canada since, and is now playing in th British Elite league with the Belfast “Gaints”, a strange team for the 5’6 Theoren Fleury.

52 Adam Foote (Colorado Avalanche – Columbus Blue Jackets, Toronto ON)

GP 6 G 1 A 0 PTS 1

-Adam Foote was a top defenseman for Canada at the Olympics. Foote signed with the Columbus Blue Jackets in the summer of 2005, and has played for Canada in the 2006 Olympics, and the 2004 World Cup, where he was Canada’s top defenseman, and had the teams best plus minus.

88 Eric Lindros (New York Rangers- Toronto Maple Leafs, London ON)

GP 6 G 1 A 0 PTS 1

-Eric had a solid tournament, while performing well early, was not noticable in the medal rounds, playing on a line with Ryan Smyth, and Owen Nolan. Eric Lindros signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs this past summer, and hasn’t played for Canada since the Olympics.

14 Brendan Shanahan (Detroit Red Wings,- Detroit Red Wings, Mimico ON)

GP 6 G 0 A 1 PTS 1

-Brendan was actually added to the Orienation a little later then most in 2001, because Canada wanted to have enough people to play intersquad games, and Joe Sakic was hurt. Brendan showed Gretzky, and made the team. Shanahan has not moved since then, and not played for Canada, although really, not really putting this well, but was screwed this December in the 2006 selections.

94 Ryan Smyth (Edmonton Oilers- Edmonton Oilers, Banff AB)

GP 6 G 0 A 1 PTS 1

-Ryan was a key grinder in the 2002 Olympics, and served his country proudly as ussual. Ryan has not moved from Edmonton since the 2002 Olympics, and has played in every major international tournament since then. Playing in the 2004 World Cup, the 2006 Olympics, and has captained all the World Championships teams from 2000 to 2005.

44 Chris Pronger (St Louis Blues- Edmonton Oilers, Dryden ON)

GP 6 G 0 A 1 PTS 1

-Pronger was one of Canada’s top defensemen in the 2002 Olympics, and was traded from St Louis to Edmonton this past summer, for Canada team mate Eric Brewer, Pronger pulled out of the 2004 World Cup, and choked in the 2006 Olympics.

2 Al MacInnis (St Louis Blues- Retired, Iverness NS)

GP 6 G 0 A 0 PTS 0

-Al was a great leader for the defense core in Salt Lake city, and played out his career in St Louis since the Olympics, he retired during the past summer, and hasn’t played for Canada since the Olympics.

31 Curtis Joseph (Toronto Maple Leafs- Phoenix Coyotes, Keswick ON)

GP 1 GAA 5.00 SP .800

-CuJo has gone down a bit since the 2002 Olympics, despite having a good year this year. He had 5 goals go by him, in an overall weak effort for Canada against the offensive power house from Sweden, you can’t blame him too much for what happened. CuJo left Toronto for Detroit in the summer of 2002, and then left Detroit for Phoenix in 2005. CuJo has yet to play for Canada again since then.

20 Ed Belfour (Dallas Stars- Toronto Maple Leafs, Carman MB)

-Belfour didn’t play in the 2002 Olympics, although according to Pat Quinn, he didn’t seem to have much of a problem with it. Belfour signed in Toronto in the summer of 2002, and was nominated for the Vezina trophy that year. Belfour’s gotten older, and slower since the Olympics, but made the 2004 World Cup team, before pulling out.

30 Martin Brodeur (New Jersey Devils- New Jersey Devils, Montreal PQ)

-Martin Brodeur going into the tournament was supposed to be the number 2 goalie at best, but played his way up the ladder to number one, and helped Canada win the 2002 Olympic gold. Brodeur played for Canada at the 2004 World Cup, the 2005 World Championships, and the 2006 World Cup, where he was obviously Canada’s best player. It’s a common myth that Domonik Hasek was the first goalie to have won both the Olympic gold, and the Stanley Cup, but Hasek won the Olympics in February 1998, and won the cup June 2002, while Brodeur won his cup in June 1995, and won the Olympic gold to become the first with both several months before Hasek won his cup, in February 2002.

That was a February to remember…

    Hey Leafy:

    Get over it! Why bother posting this? Your posts related to Olympic hockey over the past 48 hours have been stupid. Really, take a survey of all the crap you’ve commented on. Your most recent post (above) is an attempt to take away from legitimate winners and losers. Russia and Sweden didn’t get silver or fourth or whatever…that’s what tournaments are for…to decide the cream from the crap…

    I can’t stand that you’re taking another vane attempt at qualifying/quantifying international hockey. Can Admin please quit putting this guy’s stuff up?

    P.S. Your earlier posts stated that you thought Iginla shouldn’t have been on the team…yet here you celebrate him and point out his two GWGs in the 2002 final.

    Leafy…you have a lot to learn about hockey/life/reality…I don’t care if you’re 14, 41, 100, or pink with purple polka-dots. You’re posts are way off and take away from the quality of educated and informed commentary on this sight.

  2. FLAMESOWNU says:

    and when Iginla tears it up from this point forward he will be the best player in the league right leafy?

  3. wingerxxx says:

    oook, I think this horse has been beaten beyond death at this point.

    Yes, that 2002 Canada team was very good, but so were the 98 Czechs, the 88 Soviet team, and as I hear, the 1980 US team did fairly well too..

    By the way…when players play on broken feet to represent their country, when they don’t even have to, show a little respect. If you have an issue for Pronger playing, write a nasty letter to Pat Quinn.

  4. Dynamo710 says:

    “The 2002 Winter Olympics were special, and it was the one year where the Olympic results really showed how good a hockey country you were”

    Because obviously every other Olympics fails to do this…. YOU ARE A HUGE TOOL!! There’s more to the hockey world than just Canada. They were horrible this year and clearly were not the best team. GET OVER IT.

    It didn’t help that nobody on the Canadian team played with any assemblance of heart. My thinking is that Canada thought they were big shots and that they would breeze through to at least the semis. They were by far the biggest disappointment in Torino.

    “I was not quite ten yet, and it’s funny, last year, when people were saying Canada didn’t have a chance, I believed we’d win, and I was right, and this year when people said we’d dominate I said we’d lose bad, and we did… being right is very fun, especially when it happens alot.”

    A little arrogant are we?

    when it happens alot eh? and how many of your predictions have come true exactly? Two? Boy, that’s really impressive, your almost as good as Maggie the monkey on TSN from a couple of years back.

  6. Nemix says:

    I think the biggest complaint for this years squad is took too much veterans.. On the other hand.. i feel we didnt take enough. In all this is one of the youngest squads we have taken overseas and i think part of the problem .If you look above and see half the players on that team that could carry you over past that point.. There was nothing like that on this years squads..Just people paled in comparison and really could nout communicate at all .. Sakic is no where near what he was, and iggy suffered cause of it. Heatley didnt know what to do .. Thorton was a non factor. All these good players, but only on thier respective teams.. not together. Needed someone who could set up the play and lead

    Shanahan would of been instermanal in here, Sullivan for speed. Brind Amour without a doubt or a garry roberts. This is what this team desperately lacked. When needles and Yzer opted out.. really what sealed the deal

  7. bartsch says:

    We may have not been the best team, but we are, and always will be, the best at hockey.

  8. navajo says:

    Maggie McLeaf, I think it suits him just fine.

  9. eric_empire says:

    LeafyMcLeaf wrights

    “Now, this really is how I believe countries rank/ranked as hockey countries.

    1. Canada

    2. Russia

    3. USA

    4. Sweden

    5. Czech

    6. Finland

    7. Slovakia

    8. Swittzerland”

    Well your rankings are quite off on some points… ofcours you can always rank them on your own opininon. But the IIHF rank all teams from there performence the last ten years in the folowing turnaments, the Olympics, World Cup, and the World Championship. And the real rankings are as folows.

    1. Canada (3220 points),

    2. Sweden (3095),

    3. Czech Republic (3065),

    4. Slovakia (2965),

    5. Russia (2905),

    6. USA (2865), 7. Finland (2865),

    8. Switzerland (2715),

    9. Latvia (2675),

    10. Germany (2580),

    11 – 20 Ukraine, Belarus, Austria, Denmark, Kazakhstan, Slovenia, France, Norway, Italy, Japan.

    20 and up to 50 containes strange ice hockey nations as Great Brittan, South Africa, China, Serbia & Montenegro, Armenia, Mexixo, Croatia, Israel, Romania North Korea, Poland, New Zealand, Australia, Northen Irland, Iceland, Turkey, Luxembourg, Bugaria, Hugary, Spain, Thiland and India.

    You may question why Russia is so far behind eaven if there considerd a “big 4” team (Canada, Swden, Czech Rep and Russia) and i tryed to find out why… and if I did not miss anything, the only thing Russia got is a Bronze in the WC 4 years ago…

    So there you have the facts.

  10. SJ_Sharks_Fan_19 says:

    “CuJo has gone down a bit since the 2002 Olympics, despite having a good year this year”

    CuJo blows right now what in the hell are you talking about?

  11. distance7 says:

    I’ve never heard of any of those players for Team Canada. Thank you for explaining. I don’t think anyone has ever heard of “Joe Sakic,” or “Mario Lemieux.” That Brodoor guy sounds funny…put him on some hinges! fjjfjsdlfjaslkdf.

  12. SJ_Sharks_Fan_19 says:

    same ive never heard of that foot or Pecka guy

  13. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    The world rankings are mostly based on non best on best tournaments. I personally believe there should be different rankings for amateur, best on best, junior, and overall.

    The US has had some issues in hockey, Don Waddel being one of them. Russia has had a huge craziness.

    The best possible Canadian team is prolly the best in the world, followed by the best possible Russian team, the rest is pretty much a toss-up, but I like USA hockey alot.

  14. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Actually it does have a nice sound to it…

    -L

  15. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    While I agree that people are blaming the hurt (Blake and Pronger) way too much, there were a few plays that were jsut dumb on Prongers part.

  16. RangerSteve says:

    And the award winner for most subjective poster of the year goes to…..LeafyMcLeaf! Like everyone else has said…just let it go. You guys were the favorites heading in, but completely fell apart.

    Btw, February to remember? All you did was list a little paragraph about every player since they played in the 2002 Olympics. How come you didn’t post any stats, game winning goals, or even the play where mario let a pass from iginla go right thru his legs to kariya for a bang bang goal?

    No disrespect Leafy, because I respect your passion for the game/TO. On the other hand, just give it a friggen rest already!!!

  17. eric_empire says:

    The World Rankings are based on only three pro tors… The Olympics, World Cup and World Champ… No amatur tours like JWC or on lokals like the Euro Tour. So it’s probably the best way of ranking it… I mean it’s the medal och placeing that count….

    And if you are going to rank the teams by pure idividual skill Canada will like be the third best team. The Slovaks has the best skaters in the world (ofcorse there goalis sucks) flowed by Russia or perhapps Canada…. But you can’t base it on pure individual skill, and if you did, teams Finland and the US would never (unless they get teams like Latvia or Germany) make it past the quater finals…

    So i see the world rankings as the best possible way matching the teams any other way is just a utopia…

  18. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    shanahan was not screwed this december. i can honestly say i would have had this team aswell. i just would have gotten a better coach.

  19. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Right now, I’d take Spezza, Staal, Thornton, and maybe Crosby over anyone from Slovakia, and Ovechkin is the only guy from Russia I’d take ahead of any one of those guys.

  20. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Agreed…

  21. wingerxxx says:

    Blake was probably Canada’s best defenseman. Which isn’t saying a whole lot. A few plays doesn’t justify the heat Pronger is taking. Put yourself in his shoes. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: If any blame is going to be placed, it needs to be on Canada’s forwards.

  22. wheresthesoda says:

    are you serious man? Gaborik and marian hossa, these 2 guys are a million times better than crosby, and spezza. spezza plays on a line w/world class talent.

    and from russia, if you want pure talent, then you gotta look at kovalchuk, and datsyuk also. and saying ovechkin, why not say malkin also. malkin doesnt get enough respect cause he’s not in the NHL. definetly kovalev…but he’s nothing like he used to be.

  23. wingerxxx says:

    Those rankings look about right. The IIHF rankings, I mean. Russia hasn’t been the same, hockey-wise, since the Soviet Union fell apart. But that is just natural. Also, a lot of their players are coming over here to play, which doesn’t lend itself well to playing as a unified team.

  24. SJ_Sharks_Fan_19 says:

    ya know what its the Olympics! you8 have to give 100% if you cant give 100% and are hurt then DONT play and let a guy who can give everything go in you place

  25. wingerxxx says:

    I agree with you, then again, I don’t.

    Going to play injured, means you are willing to lay it all on the line for your country. Especially…especially, if you are a pro. Because you could hurt yourself even more. I don’t blame Pronger for wanting to play a bit. It took guts for Pronger to even set foot on the ice.

    It’s purely a coaching issue. It is definitely not Pronger “choking.” Considering that he was a cornerstone of the 2002 Gold Medal team, and the fact that he was risking further injury by playing, he deserves more respect. Especially when he was really not the reason why the team lost. AGAIN…blame the 13 guys who couldn’t put the puck in the net for three games.

  26. wingerxxx says:

    I agree, this article didn’t really need to be posted. It takes away from the teams that clearly were better than Canada in these Olympics. Problem is, none of us are writing articles supporting the other teams!

  27. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    I thought of a better way of putting what I meant.

    It was an end to an era, the end of the dominance of Lindros, Nieuwendyk, Lemieux, Shahanan, Yzerman, Hull, Roenick, Fedorov, Bure, and so many more NHL heros, and it displayed the new era in many ways to, displaying Simon Gagne to the world for the first time.

    The era’s over, and I miss it, that’s why the 2002 Olympics was so great.

  28. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    i wouldnt take gaborik but i would sure as hell take hossa and svatos(pretty sure hes slovak) as well as nagy over those guys. crosby takes more stupid penalties then pronger does and spezza is blessed with alfredsson and heatley.

  29. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    federov still has a few more good years in him as long as he is with rick nash.

  30. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    and why do u miss that era u only saw half of most of those careers at best talk to the people who witnessed the whole career of lemieux, yzerman, hull etc.

  31. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    I watch the games from the 80s on ESPN classic alot, and I’ve been watching hockey since I was 2 or 3.

    Not to mention that it ended the time of honor in hockey. Back when diving was bad, and you never lay around on the ice to draw a penalty. That will be greatly missed.

    Unfortunately we have guys like Chokekawski in the league, that ruin things.

  32. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    “chokekawski” is also a goal scorer so unfortunately we have guys like quinn who dont know how to use him.

  33. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Ya, but he dives… and that pisses me off.

  34. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    HUGE Svatos fan. I really love that guy. Crosby leads rookies in penalty minutes, ussually retaliaton (using his stick) and diving. You make some valid points, but I’d still say Canada has better talent.

  35. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    My big beef with Pronger, is he is one of my favorite players, he’s been my favorite non-Leaf since I was six, and I know he can do better.

  36. wingerxxx says:

    The whole team could have done better. Choking is too harsh of a word to use for him. The forwards probably, but not Pronger.

  37. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Bertuzzi, St Louis, Iginla, and many more… didn’t choke, just weren’t good enough.

    Iginla prolly is good enough, but Iginla only comes to play every other season, remember 2003? Terrible compared to 2002 and 2004. Just ain’t his year, and you don’t pick a guy in an off year. Tuzzi’s great, but he’s an NHL style player, too slow.

  38. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Nice points there. I love Steve Sullivan, Brind A’Mour, Shanahan, Roberts, all beauty’s.

    A team needs winning guys. Nieuwendyks won a cup with three different teams, and has an Olympic gold, he’s a “winner”. There are some guys that win, and some guys that can be amazing and still don’t, and you need the guys who always win to help turn the other guys into winners.

    The players we took weren’t really veterans, Bertuzzi is only 31, and aside from Brodeur, Sakic, and Blake, is the oldest player.

    You need winners. I like winners. Shanny’s a winner.

    Although we also needed Staal/Spezza/Kariya

  39. wingerxxx says:

    Remember, defense was not the problem for Canada this year. “Weren’t good enough” is a little bit of an understatement when you’ve been shut out three times, with that kind of firepower up front.

    Iginla had a much better overall tournament than Bertuzzi. He was driving to the net, firing when he had the chance…just got no breaks. Bertuzzi was probably the biggest disappointment Canada had, given just how much he had to play for, given Gretzky’s investment in him. Gretz caught a lot of flack for including Bertuzzi on the roster…and it’s evident now that everyone was right. Bertuzzi was a complete and utter non-factor later in the tournament, and the penalties he took were mind boggling. The only thing he did right, was park in front of the net, and even then, he was borderline interfering with the goaltender. The horrible thing is that he has the potential to be much better.

  40. LeafyMcLeaf says:

    Gretzky is the only guy disappointed in him, no one else really believed he deserved to be there. I like the guy, but if I had him on the team, it would’ve been as the 13th forward.

  41. navajo says:

    Quinn’s a dumb ass. Spit out the friggin’ gum already.

  42. AHLoldie says:

    I can’t figure out how someone who knows so little about hockey and is only 14 years old to boot gets so many articles printed on this site. Two days ago, I called for you to be banned for life when you stated that Todd Bertuzzi should have killed Steve Moore because he wasn’t worthy of a spot on an NHL roster. It seems nobody else picked that up. You’re just a punk kid who has too much to say. This is coming from a hockey fan since 1949.
