I was 10 grand off. Damn.


20 grand off now. Link

Doesn't this prove Tortorella's point? I bet there wouldn't be a fine if he said the exact same thing about another team (even though nobody beats Pittsburgh in whining and arrogance level).

I love Torts. One of the few coaches in the league that will speak his mind. Ridiculous that he got fined at all for it. I hope Pittsburgh gets killed by Philly in the 1st round.

Did he really say he will just apologize for it?

Also is there really no discipline????


Makes me think that Bettman really did make Milbury apologize, considering that Sid has a direct line to Bettman (and admitted as much during the whole "Crosby Rule" debacle at the ASG).

So Orpik gets off scot-free for a dirty knee-on-knee hit and Torts is fined for telling the truth. Pretty obvious that the Pens are indeed protected by the league. Philly better prepare their PK.

Wow, now it's $20,000. Hell if I had $20,000 to throw around I'd pay Tort's fine. Never heard that you couldn't say something about another team. I know you can't call out the minions or Buttman.


Unless you're part of the Penguins organization, of course. I don't remember Mario getting fined during his last tirade when he called the NHL "a garage league".

pathetic that he was fined for speaking his mind. its not like he ripped on the reffing or put doubt in the game itself. he was just calling out a bunch of pansies. not to mention its human rights to have freedom of speech. apparently you can't hurt people's feelings in the nhl without being fined.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

How pathetic. You tell the truth and you're a)made to apologize, and b)fined 20 big ones.

Can we start a fund to pay his fine? For telling the truth he shouldn't be fined - he should be congratulated.

Honestly? Yes we all predicted it, but come on. Is there any way Torts could dispute this? Telling the truth is forbade. My head is about to shake itself clear off my shoulders...

Or what about Michel Therrien and the infamous "obstruction" tirade. Not only whining incessantly, but calling out the opposition's players and the NHL referees. Double standard much?

I still laugh to myself every time I see Crosby drawing the second penalty for the epic 2008 5-on-3 kill; basically tried to jumped on Lilja's back and it worked. This first penalty was also dive-tastic:

It'll basically be synchronized swimming, with complaints instead of music.

I think Torts and Milbury have hit on something...

Random coaches/players can call out Sidney and then apologize immediately. The message will get out. People will talk about what they said.

Apologizes theses days are a dime a dozen. The standard apology is canned and forced and insincere. Get a good, funny sound bite- rather than just whining- and "apologize" right away a la Larry the Cable Guy.

This could be fun.

Bahahahahaha!!!!!! I cant stop laughing at your avitar!!! Best one ever!

And, surprise surprise...no supplemental discipline for Orpik.

Bettman clearly has Shanny on a leash. Ugh.

It's a shame, really. Sports would be way more interesting if they weren't so sanitized. Honestly there shouldn't be a fine for trash talking another team. It's part of competition. It's okay to play mind games with other teams and there should be more of it. They want rivalries, this is what makes them.

Well played. :lol:
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Yeah, Philly doesn't have any whiners on their team. :rolleyes:

Briere and Jagr come to mind. I'm sure there's others if I thought hard about it.


Not going to sit here and pretend that I've followed the guy for his whole career or anything, but I know Jagr was one of the guys who defended Kronwall's hit on Voracek. Said it was hockey and it's a contact sport and you can't take hits like that out of the game.

I don't really know if Briere had any whining to do after he got Kronwalled, but I certainly don't remember anything of the sort.

If anybody on Philly's team is a whiner, it's their Captain and biggest guy on the ice ironically enough. Well, when he's actually in the lineup anyway.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."
