Terry Frei, Denver Post and ESPN columnist, has now cast himself as an emperor overseeing a gladiator battle. With the simple gesture of a thumbs-down, Frei can dispatch anyone to instant death.
In this case, he's dispatching hockey players to the death of their careers.
Who makes his hit list? Well, let's say the guys he chose to call out aren't exactly tough to guess:
- Eric Lindros
- Jeremy Roenick
- Patrice Brisebois
- Pierre Turgeon
- Michael Peca
- and Peter Forsberg
And Forsberg? Who's that guy? I heard his ankles already retired two years ago.
