Interesting comments from Scott Parker, former teammate of Steve Moore (couple of years before the Bertuzzi incident), on the Bertuzzi incident, pretty brutally honest, awesome interview

Quote:
MHH: Hey, I still ‘boo' every time Bertuzzi touches the puck. Even when I'm at home watching on TV, I boo.

SCOTT PARKER: Yeah, yeah. He's a good man. He, he is. I mean, he did get dealt some bad cards, and the thing is, [Steve Moore] always thought he was better than everybody else. He went to Harvard, you know what, blow me. College grad. I never went to college, but I can kick your ass. I'll bring you right down to my IQ level if you want. I'll hit you about four times in the skull, that'll bring you right down. So, you know, Todd just, it was one of those games. Markus Naslund, the captain of the Canucks, gets taken out. It was a little sketchy what happened, but, hey. And then Moore, he fought, I think Cooke came after him and then he fought, which wasn't really a fight. Todd wasn't really thrilled with it, they were losing, I think it was 8 to 1 in their home barn.

You don't do that in Canada. You talk about a sport that they love? You talk about Europeans and soccer? That's hockey in Canada. So it's the same way, if you don't respond up there, they will eat you alive.

And Todd, he might have gone overboard, and what's crazy is, even talking to him after the fact and talking to Moe, Morris and other boys that were in that, that happened, I watched that tape about a hundred times, and just the way Todd hit him, and he actually grabbed him to soften his blow when he went down, and what happened was when Moe landed on him, he actually hit the back of his neck and it actually popped up. You know, just the way Todd was holding him.

But you know, it wasn't vicious, it was just, it was the heat of the moment. It was one of those things where you, you want to do something, but you don't know if it's gonna be big, if it's gonna be small, or how it's gonna pan out. But you wanna do something. And Todd, he might not have been right and it might have been a little overboard, but you know, he did something. I mean, at least he responded, at least he tried.

I know he's marked now. People hate him, and it's amazing what that can do to a man, too. It can make you feel this small, you know. And he's not a bad man. He's a great guy and a good family guy, and he just got marked. It's one of those things...

Doan in NY for NHL CBA talks but to meet in person with Rangers

Quote:
After spending two weeks gauging interest and fielding offers, Shane Doan is making his first official visit of free agency Friday, and he is doing it in New York.

Doan, the 35-year-old free agent, who has spent his entire career with the Winnipeg/Phoenix organization, is in New York and meeting with the Rangers brass to discuss a future on Broadway.

You may be right on that, the chart I looked at was for 2005-2011. Philly should be willing to give Nashville 4 1st rounders to ease the transfer.

I really hope Gillis plugs in the holes before training camp. We need a d man and a forward and there doesn't seem to be much out there. And everyday that passes it seems like Gillis might have to give up Lu for some prospects.

I think our D is fine now, assuming Tanev is going to play full time.

Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
Yesterday Doan visited the #NYRangers. He was VERY impressed with the conditions/facilities and chances of winning.



Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
Today Doan is in Philadelphia meeting with #Flyers management. Keeping option open but waiting for #Preds decision on Weber.


Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
Monday Doan will be visiting Pittsburgh. Has scheduled meeting with Shero and possibly Lemieux. Hearing #Pens might have Crosby present also


Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
For the rest of the week, Doan is also expected to meet with #Habsand #Sabres reps and visit Montreal and Buffalo. Then back to west coast.


Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
Western conference teams that Doan has on his list are #SJSharksand #Canucks (strong possibility for VAN am being told).


Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
Also don't exclude #RedWings and #Coyotes (if talks turn around) from Doan's consideration. They are on his list. Next tweet= EXACT list.


Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
Shane Doan's list of teams he is considering joining next year:#NYRangers #Flyers #Pens #Habs #Sabres #Coyotes #RedWings#Canucks #SJSharks

Hockeyy Insiderr ‏@HockeyyInsiderr
This is it for Doan update. Again, very impressed with #NYRangersyesterday. No verbal agreement in place however. Still open to alloptions


nothing special

dude, anyone that follows hockeyinsiderr just do yourself a favor and delete him, hes just an attention whore he doesn't know shit and then whenever he reads something on the net he will repost it first while the legit guys are double checking the source so sometimes he may seem to be ahead of them. Hes such a dumbass, last week the sharks website accidentally reposted an article from 2 years ago saying we were inquiring about Modano and he quickly updated saying SJ had offered modano a 1 year contract

Wut? He obviously means that Parker was a teammate of Moore's a couple years before the Bertuzzi incident, not that the interview was done a couple years before the incident.
