I really hope he reimbursed those players for breaking their sticks. Ripping the jacket off is what made me lose it though. Hilarious hahaha.

What a ******. Don't care how bad a call is you don't make yourself look like a complete jackass like that. Can't respect a guy like that.

HEY HEY HOCKEYTOWN!

That was a horrible call.

Although I'd be pissed if my coach broke my stick like that, granted the team probably supplies them I'm picky as hell. <_<

Wasn't Playfair the coach of the Flames in 2007? I believe he was behind the Flames bench when McLennean speared Franzen in Game 5! I may be wrong! But damn that was a serious meltdown! I would expect a suspension is on its way for Playfair. the irony is the fact is his lastname is Playfair and clearly he isn't! :lol:

The guy has been demoted twice in three years and who knows if he'll have a job if Darryl Sutter is fired and a new GM is brought in.

Watching people freak out is hilarious knowing that they'll regret it. I'm not gonna judge a guy because he has a s***ty day.

+1.

babs gets pissed every now and then...i'm trying to remember the game where he was jawing with an assistant coach from the other team...you guys remember what game i'm talking about? anyway, sure, he gets upset. but part of the reason why any pro is a professional, whether they're a coach, player, or whatever, is because they can usually hold it together, except perhaps in the most extreme of situations. imagine if he did that as an NHL coach on an NBC game. oohhhh, the wailing and gnashing of teeth!

but, yeah, i did kinda chuckle when it seemed like the players were trying not to laugh. :D you just. can't. do that.

Wouldn't have happened if the Wings would have stopped running Kipper.

Nice try. Kipper would have known if the wings decided to run him, they didn't. It was just poor sportsmanship, the usual from that team.


Welcome to the playoffs....where the games get better and the officiating gets worse.

Do you mean this game? At about :50. There's a gif of it, but I can't find it.

Yeah, the players on Playfair's right are like "wtf he took my stick." and the ones on his left are laughing and probably hoping he doesn't take their sticks next.

After doing a little digging, I found out that the referee that started the whole thing was Jamie Koharski, son of Don Koharski.
Remember him?

My favorite Jim Playfair moment is when he got KO'd by Joey Kocur in the preseason.


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

It has now made it to "Oddball" on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann".

What a dumb thing to do.

Just once I'd like to see Babcock do that after a Wings goal is called back.

I doubt it will ever happen.

Anyone remember when Joe Kocur was an assistant coach and threw a chair on the ice in a game against St. Louis??? That was hilarious.
