So the Penguins have been trying to dump John LeClair this month by assigning him for assignment to their minor league team in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The Pens were hoping another team would pick him up on waivers but who would do that when a team like Pittsburgh is trying to unload a contract of $1.5 million? LeClair is still a servicable forward but in today’s NHL there’s not much respect being given to players who in the past were impact guys. Ask Jason Allison and Brian Leetch.
Mark Bell charged with hit-and-run
Mark Bell of the San Jose Sharks was charged with felony hit-and-run and driving under the influence charges after he was involved in an accident during Labor Day Weekend. If convicted, Bell faces up to 3 years and 8 months in prison for rear ending a pickup truck waiting at a stop sign. He hasn’t hit anyone on the ice since then, either.
What’s worse? Having to play in Wilkes-Bree/Scranton or having to go to prison?
