Like Father, Like Son: Waaaaah!

On March 27, during a Québec Major Junior Hockey League playoff game that his team was trailing, Québec Remparts' goalie Jonathan Roy decided to take part in a brawl, skated the lenght of the ice and jumped on Chicoutimi Saguenéens' goalie Bobby Nadeau who, obviously, wasn't interested in fighting. After his outburst, Roy leaved the ice giving the highway salute to the crowd and made some crude post-game comments while interviewed.

Roy is the son of famed NHL Goalie Patrick Roy who also co-owns and coaches the Remparts. After the event, coach-daddy and goalie-son were both unapologetic and somewhat defiant, although Jonathan apologized two days later in the media.

Like father, like son? In some respects, obviously. Not in all, though, as it is unlikely that Jonathan will ever make the NHL unless his daddy has more pull than we credit him for.

Inbred Referees - Leonsis' (in)direct Criticism of Refs Trigerring Fine from NHL?

After a 2-1 loss in Boston, Washington Caps' owner Ted Leonsis posted two entries on his blog criticizing the referees. The first one had a relatively mild comment about the refs. Leonsis' second entry though, simply entitled "A Perfect Blog Post", only said "Says it all" and linked to a third-party blog post entitled "Inbred Referees 2 / Caps 1" which had as only content the following YouTube clip:

Chances are that if Leonsis had made a comment to the media along the lines of that blog post, the NHL would fine him. Probably the same if he had posted that clip on his blog. One wonders if only linking - and obviously publicly agreeing - to a third-party blog with that clip and title will also trigger a fine from the NHL.
