(NHL)   Hmmm, I guess if we're going to have the traditional Wednesday Night Hockey Thread then someone needs to submit one. Five games tonight starting at 7pm ET. Doesn't look like any 'must see' games, but there should be entertainment somewhere, probably   (nhl.com) divider line

I dunno subby, there's a game in Illinois between competing types of trash fires, so that's going to be entertaining

Boston at Florida is on NHL Network at 7pm ET. If there is justice, Quenneville will be pulled from the bench just before faceoff and told he's banned for life after this.

And TNT will be showing Oilers/Flyers at 10:00pm ET.  So there will be 2 national games for those of us in the U.S.

And THIS to the Quenneville thing.

John Doe 1 revealed himself to TSN tonight. Watch this instead of hockey.

I see desertgeek covered that base.

/and I also agree with the ban on Quenneville

I've been a long time fan of the Hawks going back to the late '80s and this is the most deflated I feel as a fan. That includes the dead years from 1994-2007.

/I hope they lose tonight and extend their record lead-less streak

No kidding.  It's one thing to be deflated because a team sucks (see my Leafs this year), but this...this is just an entire other goddamn level.  Hell, it's several entire other levels.

I'd love to see that (well, a replay of that as I've got the RW/Caps game on...)

_/although, after last night I'm a little disgusted with hockey at the moment

It's covering up a farking crime. That whole team should be erased from the Cup over this because it's pretty damn obvious that players on that team knew.

I don't disagree with that erasure.  But 30 people?  THAT'S farking telling.  A few I could see saying "I don't honestly remember", but 30?  Nerrrrrrrrrp
 
2021-10-27 7:15:24 PM  

desertgeek: /reports today said over 30 people declined to be interviewed/refused to cooperate with the investigation


If that's the case, then yes the very least that can be done (assuming most of the 30 were on the team at the time) is have a new ring made for The Cup with that year skipped. Better yet a big blank spot on the ring so that years from now when someone asks why the ring is like that the story gets retold about how so many people put a game above basic humanity.

_/if you say it quickly enough, Blackhawks sounds like Black Sox & both teams should be held with equal scorn

I'm trying to find where I saw that this morning. The report did note that 14 of the 25 players on the Hawks' 2010 playoff roster spoke to investigators. We know that one who didn't speak was Duncan Keith because he said that today.

Dangle podcast on the Blackhawks fallout.  A solid listen from three guys who were pushing this story hard when nobody else was.

At a wild guess, the player who allegedly mocked the victim wasn't interviewed.

How Joel Quenneville was allowed to step behind a NHL bench tonight is beyond me. Given what we've learned in the last 30 hours, there's no reason for him to be working while the league process plays out.

/Am I the only one who'd support a B's player firing a puck right at Quenneville's head tonight?

Also, one person who really needs to feel the heat over the Hawks scandal is former team president of business operations John McDonough. He was one of the people strongly pushing HR to ignore the abuse until after the Stanley Cup Final because he didn't want the distraction. At the time he was always easy to find behind a microphone on the radio or in front of a camera. Now, you only hear crickets.

Bs up 1-0 with a Coyle deflection of a Panther.

Joel Quenneville has made me cheer for Boston.

Same here

Panthers tie it. Don't think the typical gifs and images are appropriate for this game, though.
 
2021-10-27 7:41:02 PM  
That was pathetic. Only one Panther in their offensive zone on a change and they score.
 
2021-10-27 7:42:24 PM  
Ovi keeps moving up the all-time ladder...

1-0 almost at the end of the 1st

_/3 more to tie Hull (I think)
 
2021-10-27 7:45:36 PM  
Oooh, that Greiss save would have been the highlight of the night is Ovenchicken didn't score right after it

Cheveldayoff and Bergevin also need to feel heat from this.  Given their positions with the Blackhawks at the time, I find it hard to believe they were ignorant of the situation.

Believe it or not, Bergevin's name never appears in the investigation report. That doesn't mean he's innocent, but he's not blamed for anything on this.

When marner is playing their best defense , the leafs are done. Should be 4-0 already for the hawks.

Here would be my punishments to JQ and others, as alternative to immediate firing:

-Not eligible for the Hall of Fame
-Coaching stats not counted
-name XXXXXXXXXX out on the Chicago Blackhawks' Stanley Cups and its replicas (including Bowman and other guilty management and players' team captain, assistant and NHLPA reps for that year; other players and team name kept). JQ cannot have his name engraved on future wins
-fans to refer to him as Joe Paternoville

/player leadership did not rise and respond to the situation either
