PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Former hockey player and current NHL analyst Bobby Holik joined the FAN Morning Show to talk about the Islanders/Penguins fight last week.
Holik said the “game of hockey doesn’t need games like that, it was very much bush league from the Islanders, a team that has nothing to lose.”
Holik felt “embarrassed” for the league and the game, because that has no part in today’s game.
After the game, Mario Lemieux made some comments that were not well received by many writers and players. Holik has two reasons for the criticism. “Mario is running a successful franchise and people don’t like to cheer for people as great as he was.”
Holik talks about what can be done to prevent head injuries and how the league can prevent the bush league play from happening again.
