I seem to recall some ish about Ted Nolan being blackballed around the league for years, not sure why...maybe because he nailed somebody's old lady?

And did it ever come out, what Leafs player that Alanis song was about?

^ I never once heard that he was blackballed because of any illicit behaviour. The story went that he was blacklisted by then Buffalo GM John Muckler for some unspecified reason. Conventional wisdom among some in the media had Nolan somehow going above Muckler's head, possibly all the way to ownership on some issue or other.


And are you refering to You Oughta Know from Alanis? I had heard that it was about Dave Coulier of Full House fame, who dated Alanis for a while.

If every player/coach who ever fooled around with another player/coach's wife got blackballed, there'd be a lot of sparse teams, I bet. Or maybe not.

I think there was a similar story a few years back involving two Leaf's players, maybe elfa can confirm. I also heard that Brendan Shanahan "stole" his best buddy (at the time) Craig Janney's wife (who he's now married to with twin boys).

Yea I think you're right (re: Nolan). I think it was something to the effect of him going over Muckler's head but I think/thought there was more to it...or maybe just Muckler's stature around the league (from his Edmonton days). No I didn't think it was anything illicit, I was kind of joking about that bit.

And yeah that was the song I was thinking of...I'd heard rumors it was Felix Potvin, but I suppose it could have been Coulier. Wow, Full House, there's a blast from the past.

Might have been Darcy Tucker since everyone seems to hate him anyway.

And I do remember the Shanny/Janney thing.

Yep, you're right. It was Darcy Tucker.

I knew I wasn't the only one who remembers the Shanny thing, lol.

Lots of bitter ex-Whaler fans from my neck of the woods, who love dishing dirt on Shanahan. I never really blamed the guy for wanting out, I'm sure he saw the writing on the wall.

I even still have his jersey.

I have his jersey from when he played for the Wings. I almost got to see him play back in NY in March but missed the game. I was heartbroken when he left but hey, he won two Cups with us and it was time to move on.

lol, people still watch hockey? Why? It's a silly sport and the season is over anyway. Move on, people. There's always next year.

If only the Lions played hockey. Then I'd probably agree with you.

I'm going to the game against the Kings next week.

I love it when friends get free tickets and stuff.

Maybe a slight over reaction. The season might not be over just yet....enial:

Anchor on Sportsnet Connected tonight: "The Oilers are 9 and oh in shootouts this season! That's like...9 extra points!"
