      While I'll be the first (or rather, another) one to say I don't care for Michigan's fans, let me also be the first (or rather, another) to say I have nothing but the utmost respect for Coach Berenson and the hockey program at UMich. If college hockey is played for another 200 years, Coach Berenson and the last quarter century of Michigan teams/players will go down as some of the very best in college hockey history.
      "Hockey is the only tribe I belong to." --Jack Falla

      "Why, as a matter of fact, I suggested starting a hockey program to Father Callahan, our president. He was downright interested until we came to the use of sticks, and then he threw up his hands. He said, 'No, that game is not for our University. Notre Dame will never endorse any game that puts a club in the hands of an Irishman.' " -- Knute Rockne: All American

        Lombardi knows he screwed up, but has not gone far enough yet to apologize....

          From those quotes he appears to keep digging that hole deeper. I guess Berenson will have to quit telling his d-men to "go..go..go" if they want to play for the Kings.

            The (dis)respect for (elitist) ND fans is mutual, as much as the respect for Jackson is as you have described for Berenson.

              He knows he screwed up only in so far as disparaging his own player. Lombardi had no option but to go on record as being fully supportive of his player, or continue to face questions about this incident and his future plans for Johnson.

              An apology to Berenson or the Michigan program aren't exactly a priority for him to save face in LA, and frankly would be disingenuous at this point anyway. He would be apologizing simply for the fact that he believed his comments to be off the record.

                I have never been a fan of Red or UM (why would I be??), but if I were him I would challenge LA to a game. Red has done more for hockey than that twit. The Kings couldn't even win with The Great One on the team.
                If Johnson isn't playing the way you want, bench or trade him. All you just did was tick him off and lower his trade value.

                  Real smart. Dont' ya think?
                  Slap Shot - 444 might want to consider a restraining order.
                  dggoddard - Minnesota is THE ELITE Program in all of college hockey.

                    I don't know how this clown can even say something like that. It's not like his team has made the playoffs almost 20 years in a row.

                      Where is Molly these days? My director friend wanted to do a feature-length about her life but Angelina Jolie was all tied up so he settled for some second-rate thing about Darwin.

                          Among names that will live forever in Michigan sports legendry are "Yost", "Harmon", "Evashevski", "Shembechler", "Losh", "Heyliger", "Berenson" and "Molly".
