Jeremy Roenick suffers pre-season Concussion

  • The L.A Kings were dealt a blow when Jeremy Roenick suffered another concussion in a pre-season game vs the Phoenix Coyotes.

    Jeremy Roenick is very vocal player, maybe the loudest mouth in the NHL. Some people love him some people hate him.

    Roenick has now stated how the game “isn’t as good as it once was” and that “There is no respect for people in this league”. Is he right or is he just being a baby who can dish out whatever he feels like saying or doing (the water bottle throwing incident comes to mind) but not take it?

    Maybe he has a point being it was a pre-season game, but this is hockey after all is it not? If he wants to be the most recognized and known face in the game he should be aware of it at all times. Pre-season included.

    I always considered J.R to be a stand up guy in the NHL. I am not a fan of many players from the U, S of A, but Roenick was an exception. I like the fact the man spoke his mind when it came to the state of the game, and the fact that he plays a nice in your face hockey style. BUT, now all that is pretty much out the window because good ol’ JR couldn’t take a hit.

    ”It is uncalled for. It is ridiculous – one of the reasons our game isn’t as good as it once was. There is no respect for people in this league. It was not a cheap hit, it was a good solid hit. But you don’t do that in pre-season.” – Jeremy Roenick

    MR ROENICK, some people have been out of a job for over a year now! Don’t you remember the so called “lock out� we just had to go through? Some people don’t have millions in the bank and NIKE GOLF endorsements to get them by. Oh so you didn’t collect your 5 some odd millions last year. These guys are out to get job in the pre season, and if you are coming down the boards with that puck…get ready. This isn’t some shinny game with your friends, this is the NHL buddy, or did you forget what you are coming back to? JR – you’re a loser.

  2. I agree that jermey roenick is a loser and a baby who bascially craves attention and bitches about anything if it dosn’t go his way.

    enough said.
