08:28 AM ET 11.22 | Though he has since backtracked a bit on the statement, Matt Duchene took aim at his overseas teammates earlier Wednesday. While he did not single anybody out by name, Duchene out and out criticized the effort of some. ... "This is not a "Social hour". You can't just put your skates on and skate around. Everyone could have a bad game, but when you don't prepare yourself for a game, when you don't give it your very best. If we play like this against a top team like Skellefte? we would be down 5-0 after the first period." At the end, the coach of the Frolunda, Kent Johansson, commented on Duchene's quotes: "The biggest problem is that not everyone is contributing. Duchene didn't do that either."

He's really earning the nickname Douchene.

Seconded. Send any leftover Bettman to me.

The NHL and NFL threads make it look as if we're the only one's on Fan Nation this morning Danny.

How about I FM you my phone number and we just talk between ourselves?

(BTW - The leftover Butt-plug drumsticks are really tiny.)

Thanks, HC!

BTW. Good luck to you and the Stamps. Since meaningful sports celebrations in your nick of the woods are rare, I hope they win. It's not quite Lord Stanley but .... I'm sure you won't turn Earl Grey down. ;-)

I will have to disagree with your outcome of the game. It will be an Argo's win, but I do agree of the barley based Bevvies comment
