First Wayne Simmonds-Rangers drama, now a Dan Bylsma-backed squad is furious at Radko Gudas for nearly decapitating young whippersnapper Daniel Catenacci in only his third game in the league. Catenacci, who is a spicy-a-meatball, is undergoing concussion protocol.
This all happened in the third period, a frame after Gudas kneed Marcus Foligno, leading to this fight:
After the game, Foligno said of Gudas, whom Tim Panaccio notes was recently warned by the league about his hits: “That guy’s an idiot and stupid… He’s dirty and known for it.” Here’s the full quote courtesy of the Flyers’ PR staff:
“I don’t want to talk about that guy, that guys an idiot and stupid. He gets his hits in, he’s dirty and he’s been known for it. He goes after a rookie who plays in three games and goes right at his head. He’s an idiot, that guy, that’s all I can say. I wish that me and Deslauriers [DLo] were out on the ice at that time and we could’ve done a little worse damage to him.”
There’s still a little Bully left in this team… kind of like it. Shh, don’t tell anyone.
