You can read about it here.
Maybe there is more than just "former" teammates battling each other.
I'm pretty sure I didn't dream this, but last night I heard that Mele and Boucher went at it during practice yesterday. While I haven't seen anything about this on the blogs, I'n sure I didn't dream it.
What is the story, Blake? Because of ignorance, I can't make an educated opinion on this. However, Boucher does have a history, doesn't he? I hope this isn't being covered up by the team or the media. After all, if it is true, the spin could go either way. One way would be to spin it as a team growing dysfunctional under the pressure of elimination, or two, the competitive fire of the team is evident as they are so stoked to get back into action again tempers are flaring.
If it's true, then this has got to be the weirdest playoff season I can remember.
Here is my advice for the team.
2.Stop goals from being scored.
3.Repeat above the next night.
There seems to be some unrest in Komet country.
I'm pretty sure that if something like that did happen, even if Blake had watched it unfold right in front of him, he wouldn't say a word about it. Certainly no one associated with the team would. Of course just knowing that it would be covered up didn't mean it actually happened, but like anything else, people will be more likely to think it might have. That's the power of suggestion for you.
Not suggesting that Blake is dishonest in any way. He's just the kind of reporter that I wish there were more of these days -- the sort that doesn't try to stir up trouble.
I'm a firm believer in that every little thing that goes on with a team isn't necessarily the fans' business. What is important is what happens on the ice during a game. Spats between players on the same team are a common occurrence, sort of like spats, and yes, even fights, between brothers growing up and even sometimes after they've grown up.
Thinking about buying a new GM truck? Would it matter or be "news", something the public needs to know about, if two GM employees got into it in the rest room out at the plant? I think not. Same here, in my opinion.
