A little clarity.

The play Batherson was injured on happened in the first period against Buffalo. After Sabres goaltender Aaron Dell settled the puck behind the net for defenceman Jake McCabe to pick up, the netminder shielded McCabe as Batherson came chasing around the net. Dell then proceeded to elbow Batherson, sending him awkwardly feet first into the boards.  Batherson stayed on the ice in visible distress before leaving to go to the dressing room.

“Drake looks like he’s gonna be [out] a lot longer,” Smith said. “Kid has a chance to go to his first All-Star game, it’s a bad play by the goalie. He’s done it before. We’ve seen all the replays. Any other player in the game that does that, you know, you have to go out and face the music. Certainly the league will look at whatever. But it’s a bad play.”

 

Smith is mincing words.  Dell did far more than throw an elbow.  He laid his whole shoulder into Batherson.  It was a dirty hit.  Far from the first time either.  I like good tough hockey as much as anyone, but this thuggery has no place in the game.

Oh yeah no doubt.  Stick chops too.  Not the first "interference."

 

 

Thanks for the clip. Certainly has a history.

Niku on waivers 

Does this mean we have a D man coming back on the roster??Dare i say Edmundson??

Really doubt Niku gets claimed as he would have to be put on the claiming team's roster. I don't see teams lining up for him.

The Arizona Coyotes may have found a new home.  No, this is not a recording.  According to PHNX Sports' Craig Morgan, the Coyotes are reportedly in advanced talks with Arizona State University to use the school's new multi-purpose arena as their temporary home for the next three to four years while the organization searches for permanent lodging.
