I admit I’ve been more than a little fascinated by the Mike Danton saga in New Jersey. Danton is the forward that mouthed off to Devils GM Lou Lamoriello and ended up in hockey limbo.
Danton wouldn’t report to the minors and Lamoriello wouldn’t trade him.
Well the saga is over. For now.
Danton’s been traded to the Blues.
He’s already talking about playing against the Devils. Even money says he pisses off St. Louis GM Larry Pleau before that game rolls around. Although Danton’s agent told him to: “…shut his trap and play…shut up and do your talking on the ice.”
That’s just Danton’s style, too, right?
