did Don Cherry say something to the extent of the league will come down hard on Sobotka with a $10,000 fine for swinging the octopus tonight?... or did I mishear him? i was only half paying attention.

Yeah, it would be a real dick move to fine the Wings 10,000 for swinging the octopus OFF ice. How dare he be enthusiastic for the fans sake....

Thats so stupid. I don't see whats wrong with it. That's what home ice advantage is all about, getting the crowd riled up. The league is too serious when it comes to stuff like that.

They were warned of the fine and he did it anyway.

Cherry wasn't being serious, and Al wasn't even on the ice (so no different than any other game this postseason), so technically he hasn't broken any rules

I think they got it mixed up. Al can do it in the entrance for the Zamboni, which is what he did. It's only on the ice he can't do it.

Wow, where the hell have some of you been?

The NHL said they would issue a $10,000 fine if Al swung octopi around. He did. He might not get fined because it was in the "zamboni entrance" or wherever but it could still happen.

NOW, with that said... yes, Cherry was saying that he'll probably get fined for doing it but how the HELL does that make him an "*******"?

Some of you guys really need to clam down.

It was Ron MacLean who said it, but I don't think he realizes that it's not the first time it's been done this year. He was in the zamboni entrance just as he was in previous games this year when he swung it, so it should be fine.

the word he used was "rednecks" and he explained it today that he meant it as a term for people of blue collar-type lineage. he said that he himself was a redneck and that he didn't mean to be offensive.

chill, bro.

hmm that makes no sense. Im a blue collar worker, and I work hard, and I cont consider myself a redneck. Of course he said he didnt mean for it to be offensive because he prolly took a lot of heat for it.

no, he said that they'd be leaning over, working, and the sun would be beating down on their neck and making it red.

If Al did it in the Zamboni entrance and NOT on the ice, then he shouldn't get a fine. The league decided a few days back that Octo-twirling is fine, as long as Al does it off the ice -

Here's Helene St. James' blog from Thursday's Freep about it -

The NHL has decided that octopus twirling is OK after all at Joe Louis Arena.

The catch is, it has to be done away from the ice - like at the Zamboni entrance.

The NHL forbade the Wings, under threat of $10,000 fine, to do so during round one, because debris allegedly came off the slimy creatures and became embedded in the ice. Al Sobotka then took to doing his renowned overhead twirl in the Zamboni entrance, but the NHL put the kybosh on that as well.

Now, with round three about to start tomorrow, the league has loosened up a bit.

I think this is great news - Sobotka's octopus twirl is widely associated with the Wings being in the playoffs, and as we all know, the NHL needs all the recognition-factor it can get. And since cameras will be sure to capture Sobotka twirling at the Zamboni entrance - and transmit it onto the Jumbotron - that seems to be an ideal compromise.
