    I don't get it either, I would definitely be worried about my eyesight. Their excuse of it effecting their vision is crap, the college players here seem to do well with full face protection.

    ITA Miss F, a few of my family members know his dad and have met Brett, well apparently they are complete opposites, Bobby is down to earth and Brett is about as arrogant as they come and if there is one personality trait that turns my stomach it's arrogance so good riddance Brett. Anyone know what the whole deal with him getting American citizenship was all about? I will admit that that turned me off too. Just wondering why he did it if anyone knows. Thanks.

    Because he lived in the States when he was young, the U.S. national team asked Brett to play for them.

    And..he did!

    ~~~~~~

    The Jackets lost another promising young player. Dan Fritsche has suffered an ankle injury

    Darcy Tucker, the victim of the ugly hit by Andy Sutton is now blaming Atlanta coach Bob Hartley for the whole thing! "I think there were a couple of guys on their team that were sent to do something..."

    Paul Coffey's #7 will be retired Tuesday against Phoenix. Gretzky should have a lot to say about it.

    Robbie Schremp has already scored 28 points in 6 games for London of the OHL!

    Martin Havlat is expected to be suspended for kicking Hal Gill of Boston.

    Two players who have frustrated with their inconsistent play have been swapped.

    Jamie Lundmark goes to the Coyotes and Jeff taffe goes to NYR.

    If you look at player stats, you'll notice that there's some guys who have ZERO points that you thought would rack up at least 40.

    Shean McEachern of Boston is a huge disappointment. This is a guy who scored 70 points for Ottawa.

    Kris Draper...he certainly hasn't been 24-goal worthy this season.

    Jozef Stumpel, now with Florida, is once again showing why Boston and LA gave up on him 2 times.

    There's way too many defencemen to name, but some highlights include Chris Pronger, Pavel Kubina, Scott Niedermayer, and Jordan Leopold.

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    Did you see that massive suspension yesterday? Windsor Spitfires coach/GM in the OHL got 40 games as a coach and the whole season as a GM because of a fight in practice and a hazing incident on the team bus. Forgot if any of the players got suspended.

    the hazing seems to be a lot worse this year. similarly, the entire McGill (university in canada) football team got suspended for the rest of the season. meaning the team forfeits. and the players responsible for a horrendous hazing are facing disciplinary action.

    but back to hockey, i really wish the flames were playing better

    Bruins not doing so well either. After tonight's loss, they are 0-5 against their division.

    It's pretty crazy when you look at the numbers of some players.

    A guy like Simon Gagne who has 10 points in 5 games. If he kept up the pace, Gagne would finish with ONE HUNDRED and FIFTEEN goals and 49 assists. Of course, that wouldn't happen, unless Forsberg is that good at setting up Gagne.

    Bryan McCabe - the new Bobby Orr? If he keeps his pace, he'll end up with 128 points.

    There's some funny ones, like Martin Straka. At his pace, he should end up with 100 points and 100 assists.

    The Bruins are still winless (0-5-1) against their division. I did not enjoy the shoot-out today. I would've rather had the Bruins lose playing in another period of OT. Too bad the Bruins couldn't put the game away with all the powerplays they had. They need some work in that area.

    Ottawa was handed their first loss of the season today by the Hurricanes.

    Sheldon Souray's Family Dispute

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=141061&hubname=nhl

    The Toronto Star reports that Montreal police were called to Sheldon Souray's apartment Sunday after receiving a 911 call for an altercation between the Canadiens defenceman and wife Angelica Bridges.


    A source close to the Montreal police department told the Star that two officers arrived to investigate, and Bridges claimed she had been pushed against a stove and showed them marks on her arms, stomach and back.

    The police department told the paper that no criminal complaint was filed and no charges were pressed.

    Bridges, a former Baywatch television star and Playboy cover model, reportedly filed for divorce in August, three years to the day she married Souray.

    Canadiens spokesperson Donald Beauchamp told the Star he spoke to Souray, who was practicing for Thursday's game against the Ottawa Senators, asking him for a comment.





    "Mr. Souray just explained to me that he doesn't discuss the details of his personal life," he told the paper.

    According to the Star's source, one of the officers asked Bridges what she was doing in Souray's residence. Bridges said he had asked her to fly to Montreal to visit and possibly work things out, and had told her he was a "changed man."

    The couple's two-year-old daughter Valentina accompanied Bridges on the trip. They left the apartment under police escort and flew back to Los Angeles.

    "She called me essentially hysterical just after the incident," Bridges' lawyer Lon Isaacson told the Star from Los Angeles. Isaacson added that Bridges did not press charges "out of concern and care" for Souray.

    A hearing is scheduled in Los Angeles Friday to deal with custody, visitation, child and spousal support issues between Souray and Bridges.

    Files from the Toronto Star were used for this report.
