Apparently, Art thinks that Zetterberg is being picked on, and the rough treatment is not what America wants.
The highest comedy...this little line...
Hockey will never have an impact in the United States until it cleans up its perceived image of being a brutal sport.
Hey, Art...heard of the NFL? Oh wait, the Lions have sucked that much, I know you idiots in the moron...errrr motor city may have thought the league folded.
The next, more harsh assault came when Nashville captain Shea Weber smashed the head of the Wings' Henrik Zetterberg into the glass at the end of the game. The act was vicious, ugly and just plain cheap.
Hey, Art, isn't there a guy named Todd Bertuzzi on your team? Hi pot, this is kettle.
In typical NHL fashion, we’re getting administrators and pundits talking out of both sides of their mouths. They’re feigning a bit of outrage, but for the most part they’ve given Weber a free pass.
Like they did Bertuzzi, WHEN THEY LET HIM BACK IN THE LEAGUE.
If it had been Jack Hillen, Nashville’s sixth defenseman, and not a superstar like Weber who had crushed Zetterberg’s head into the glass, he likely would have been suspended.
Wow, sound like a 5 year old much?
What else should we expect from someone who covers the Red Wings. They aren't dominating the league anymore, getting beaten by a better team. The excuses are flowing. From this Avalanche fan...GO PREDS!
