I am really at a loss for words. Don't really know how I take this... immature? funny? uncalled for? good way to agitate?

 

Anyways here is the link to video over on CBS... http://www.cbssports...efore-a-faceoff

 

If anyone wants to embed the video feel free.

Steve Ott is a total clown, but I still like him because he once did this...

 


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."

Well it was directed more at Halpern's shield, not his face.   Mmmmmmm...shield....


My guess is that Ott is going to be in favor of making them mandatory now :D

My guess is that everyone who has to play against Ott is going to be in favour of making them mandatory! :P

 

It was kind of hard to tell from that angle, but it almost looked more like he stuck his tongue out in a licking motion rather than actually licking him.   I don't think he was actually trying to lick.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

That's hysterical!  I can't watch it on my computer at work cause of firewalls, but I'll definitely watch it when I get home.


This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Haha, I watched Brendan Shanahan's video explanation of the incident.  According to Shanny every player is responsible for their own tongue, and much like their stick, they must be held responsible for ensuring its proper use.  Additionally, while there was clearly intent to lick, no penalty was assessed by the on ice officials.  Furthermore, it must be taken into account that Jeff Halpern was not injured as a result of the incident and was able to return to the ice later that period after squeegeeing off his visor. 

 

In Summary:

 

Clearly intent to lick

No "licking" penalty assessed

Halpern was not (physically) injured; no mention of the psychological effects

 

Because of this the Department of Player safety has decided to issue a warning to Buffalo's Steve Ott.  He will be considered a repeat "licker" going forward.

I wonder if Ott's facebook page replaced the Like button with a Lick button.
