As for JR’s hit on Modano, yep it was cheap and dirty and it does not surprise me in the least when it comes to JR. This guy is a self-proclaimed superstar who hasn’t really accomplished much at all. Remember his “I will save the world” comments during his signing press conference last year. Yep, the only thing he saved was a tee-off time for the second round of last years playoffs.
But anyhow, I digress. Yes the hit was dirty, but really big deal. Dirty hits happen every game, even by those players that wear the blue and white, but it is hockey and shit happens.
The real villian here is not JR, it is Gary Bettman and the instigator penalty.]]>
