Mixing metaphors and casting cliches about hockey and the Maple Leafs for the ether's pleasure since MCMLXVII.


Hartnell on Alberts

Jeez, you offer praise to a guy for his good sportsmanship in not hitting an opponent in a prone position and then he goes and does something like this. Needless to say, the hit on Alberts was dirty and pointless. My compliments to Hartnell are withdrawn.

    "It appears that Mr. Hartnell was attempting to let up on delivering a check to an opponent that was in a vulnerable position," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell. "However, at the point of contact, he did deliver a blow to the head of Mr. Alberts that resulted in an injury."

    He only gets two games, because he was clearly trying to let up. Riiight.

    Hartnell's explanation sounds like a Nazi in denial.
