Former Rangers goalie John Vanbiesbrouck recently landed an analyst gig with the Versus network. Said appointment comes 3 years after the Beezer, while coaching the OHL’s Soo Greyhounds, went racial on one of his players, Trevor Daley.
Off-Wing Opinion’s Eric McErlain wonders, “how much punishment is enough for somebody who commits an anti-social act?”
When the news first hit, Vanbeisbrouck took his medicine, publicly apologized, and resigned from his positions as head coach and GM. He’s more or less been exiled from hockey ever since then, and I think more than enough time has passed since the incident to give him a second chance.
Reader S. Lyons of Los Angeles, CA has left a text message. He couldn’t agree more.
Down 3-2 after two periods in Florida, the Flyers are having some kinda week. They’ve lost Peter Forsberg for a spell, parted ways with Petr Nedved, heard allegations that Ken Hitchcock’s got nothing between his ears, and dropped 4 in a row prior to this evening.
It could be worse. At least they didn’t hire Art Howe.
