#StayNegi: Na-na-nah-na, na-na-nah-na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye!

Catching up on my hockey news today, I couldn’t help but twitch at the headline on SportsNet.ca “Brodeur Could Return For Another Year”.  Why does this make me twitch?

The Monster Is Walking Free In Two Short Years

There are so many moments in hockey that make me yell "Come on! What were you thinking?" but I think today all hockey fans can join together in disgust.  

What am I talking about?  No, it's not Mark Giordano's iffy hit on Ryan O'Rielly and no, is it any of my past UTP posts.  I'm talking about the decision announced today in Tod Holt and Theo Fleury's trial against Graham James.
