His brutal hit from behind on Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote left Foote dazed and fearful of a serious injury. Luckily, the Avs say Foote is day-to-day.
Zeiler didn't get much of a defense on this site, and Puck Daddy also weighed in with a rather scathing take on the suspension.
Well, Zeiler can take heart, because he has at least one supporter out there.
"We do not agree with (the suspension),'' (Kings GM Dean) Lombardi said. ``(We) think the sentence was excessive, but we will live with it. Every good army needs a couple of criminals."I can't say I have a clue what the hell Lombardi is talking about, but I'm thinking he may have spent too much of his time in Los Angeles hanging out with Snoop Dogg. I'm trying to hold out hope that "Every good army needs a couple of criminals" is some sort of well-known motivational saying, but I have never seen it on a poster, and my attempts to find it mentioned in a presidential speech or something like that have failed.
Actually, it sounds like something Bobby "The Brain" Heenan would have said back in his WWF heyday.
