But still, the guys career got cut short, who could begrudge him a few extra slices of pie?

A couple of things I noticed. First, Deader's wife is a butter face (don't get me wrong, I wouldn't kick her out of the sack, just an observation). Second, do the Avs have a warehouse full of that painting that they gave him? It seems like that's the same one they give everyone at every ceremony for every occasion. Patrick Roy has to have at least three of them.

Or EJ if they win the Lottery or Staal if someone jumps ahead of them. Any of those 3 are fine with me.

Jonathon Toews wouldn't be a bad choice either. I saw a bit of him this year and he looks like a stud in the making.

Report: Gretzky Not Man Enough To Bet On Football

PHOENIX--When Wayne Gretzky’s wife, Janet Jones, was accused of betting thousands of dollars on professional football, many wondered if Gretzky himself was involved as well. However, a report today in The Arizona Republic appears to have cleared Gretzky of any involvement, claiming that he is way too much of a p***Y to do something as cool as betting on football.

According to sources cited in the report, Gretzky is “not even man enough to buy a scratch ticket.”

“I can tell you that Wayne is one hundred percent innocent,” the source claimed. “This guy is speaking the truth. I’ve been associated with him for many years and there is no bigger p***Y on earth than Wayne Gretzky. It takes balls to bet on football, especially the huge amount of money his wife was betting. That lady has the courage of ten men, unlike her husband, who would shrink in fear from a game of bingo.”

The source also called Gretzky “wishy-washy” and claimed that he warned his wife against betting several times.

“Whenever she wanted to bet on a game, he would be like ‘Honey, it’s wrong to wager on sports. Money doesn’t grow on trees, you know,’ like he was her father or something. Then she would roll her eyes and tell him to live a little. I mean it’s not like he isn’t swimming in cash. If I was him I’d be betting on everything - except for his own team, of course. Those guys are horrible.”

Hours after the report was published, Gretzky’s attorney told reporters that it was “one hundred percent accurate” and that his client should not be under any suspicion for gambling.

“This report is true. We agree with everything claimed by these sources,” said attorney Ron Fujikawa. “Simply put, gambling large sums of money is not consistent with Wayne’s personality. He’s a family man, a man of conviction and integrity that would never participate in something so illegal and dangerous. He’s a pillar of the community. He ‘s never been in an ounce of trouble his whole life. In other words, he’s a colossal bore.”

The new evidence seems to support Gretzky’s statement that he never gambled on sports, despite the fact that his assistant coach, Rick Tocchet, is charged with operating a large gambling ring that also involved his wife. Since the allegations were made, several of Gretzky’s friends and associates have come to his defense, including some of his players on the Phoenix Coyotes.

“I know Wayne and he would never do something like this,” said goalie Curtis Joseph, during a telephone interview. “It breaks my heart to see his name being dragged through the mud. This is a guy who goes through his whole life not having one ounce of fun or breaking any rules, and now he’s being questioned like he’s some kind of criminal. Sorry, but his only crime is being married to a woman who really, really liked the Steelers last week.”

Some in the media aren’t buying the latest alibi from the Gretzky camp, however. Some are even accusing the Great One of a cover up in order to protect himself from prosecution.

“I’m not buying all this ‘he’s not man enough’ B.S.,” said Jay Mariotti on Around the Horn. “Just think, if he really did bet on sports, this would be the biggest scandal in NHL history. This could bring down the whole league, and totally tarnish Gretzky’s legacy. Granted there is no evidence that he committed any crimes or placed any bets, but it’s really fun to think and talk about anyway. So let’s just pretend he did, OK?”

Hours later, Around the Horn producers announced that they will devote the next week of broadcasts to pretending that Wayne Gretzky is a gambling addict and that the scandal will rock the sports world.

Default NHL agrees on new contract with officials

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=2377203

TORONTO -- The NHL announced a new four-year labor agreement with the league's on-ice officials Monday.

Referees and linesmen ratified the extension Friday. The deal was first agreed to in late December but needed to be passed by both sides. The NHL's board of governors unanimously voted in favor of it last month.

The deal will pay first-year refs $136,000, with a maximum of $290,000 for veterans. First-year linesmen will be paid $95,000, with the most experienced earning up to $190,000.

Also part of the contract is a stipulation for mandatory helmets for all on-ice officials starting next season and mandatory visors for all incoming refs and linesman in 2007-08.


Will frazier have to cover his pretty hair?

No. He has a natural helmet. So I think he's good.

Also. A great win for the Avs last night. They were flying around the ice. Hinote started the night off perfectly by getting the better of that anus lesion Sean Avery. Sakic's first goal was a beauty, and you knew then that the Avs were getting the bounces. Budaj went all Irbe on us and was "Like wall." Add to that the great ceremony for Deader before the game. It's a shame he had to get off the ice so early. He was living up to his potential with the Kings. While in Colorado he was a very good player...in L.A. he became a legit upper echelon power foward. It just ended too soon.

Time to go hunting for some duck.

Tanguay reportedly out 2 to 4 weeks with a knee sprain. Damn, damn, damn. Sakic and Hejduk are going to have to keep up their hot streaks.

ENVER (Ticker) -- If the Colorado Avalanche hope to win the Northwest Division, they may have to do so without leading scorer Alex Tanguay.

The Avalanche on Tuesday learned that Tanguay will be sidelined up to four weeks with a sprained right knee.

Tanguay, 26, suffered the injury in the first period of Colorado's 6-5 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Sunday. An MRI on Tuesday revealed no serious structural damage.

An All-Star in 2004, Tanguay has 26 goals and a team-leading 48 assists in 67 games this season.

Tanguay's injury could not have come at a worse time for the Avalanche (38-25-6), who trail the first-place Calgary Flames by two points in the division standings.


Colorado will already be without rookie sensation and leading goal scorer Marek Svatos, who is out for the remainder of the season with a fractured right shoulder.

Yeah...the Kings are up 3-1 in the season series...but are once again looking up in the standings at the Avs. Every year it's the same thing with the Kings. They whine about injuries...this year is no different...and end their season with a whimper. The Kings' window was slammed shut in '93 when Marty McSorely's stick was found to be illegal. They've been also rans ever since. Their team's highpoint in the past 13 years was upsetting Detroit in the playoffs, and of course then losing to a better team and eventual Stanley Cup champion soon thereafter.

They're less of a threat to win the cup than the Avs, and of course the Ottawa Senators...the latter team has taken the concept of the postseason choke to astronimical heights, on what in recent history has been a yearly basis.

holy crap, av fans were whining about injuries this year, if only we had ( insert player name) we would be contenders. Injuries are part of the game and I have no problem with it. Just when Frolov and Demitra come back we are a way better team.

If you looked closely at Deader, his body didn't appear much bigger. His face looked puffy to me. Kind of inclined to think he is still on some type of steroid regiment for the brain.

And - His wife was right behind him. NOT the overly oranged tanned with white bleached blonde hair woman towards the back. That may have been some family member but his wife is normal looking.

Can't believe those twins are 5 years old...

No one went to the net - and owned it like Deadmarsh.
