Do you think he will bring the Cup here during his day with it? Do you even want it here when it's not celebrating a Pens' championship? I'm okay with it as long as his team did not beat the Pens in the finals, like Lucic possibly taking the Cup back to his hometown of Vancouver.

he lives in fox chapel, i'm pretty sure.

my guess is he'd either bring it to pittsburgh or take it to kamloops, BC

Remember Reechi was also accused of being a lockeroom cancer back in 2006 and 2007 - he was taking a pounding from the media and teammates - even the fans were all over him saying he was sucking the life out of the team.

Look where Reechi is today - and remember where he was 2007 :thumb: :lol:

Statement from Recchis agent Rick Curran via radio

Transcript

The victim in this case - Mark Recchi


Regarding the nasty comments about [b]Mark made by media ans fans all over the world:[/b]

Regretfully, we are compelled to vigorously respond to numerous and false statements being made about Mr.Recchi.

Mr.Recchi was recognized as hockey genius as a child. His life and development were devoted to cultivating his hockey skills and extraordinary tactical gifts. Discipline, hard work, and a desire to win and better teams through his creativity were emphasized throughout his youth.

It was recognized very early that Mr.Recchi talents and genius could generate many millions of dollars to him and the clubs who hired him. From the time he signed his first contract others have sought to exploit and take advantage of his creative talent and innovative mindset.

Throughout his career, Mr.Recchis desire to create and help our world has been subjected to efforts to exploit, undermine and take advantage of this giving human being.

Mr.Recchi lives in a world where his privacy is continually violated.

Hate fuels hate and Mr.Recchi now realizes that he needs to fight back. Mr.Reechi will fight back against all those so called fans who now tries to besmudge his reputation.

We will not tolerate this, these are serious accusations, about Mark being a cry baby and lockerroom cancer.

I managed to get some direct quotes too:

"We are going to retaliate, and I´ve been given full authority to. We will land on you like a ton of bricks, we will land on you like a hammer. If anyone does anything to in some way hurt Mr.Recchis, there will be vengance."

"If someone does anything to intrude on the private matters any way thats actionable, we will unleash a hell like you´re never seen before."

"Point is you can not abuse and you can not spread untrue rumours about Mark Recchi."

"I´m here to tell you right now that Mr.Recchi are going to fight these attacks with every resource he has. I´m here to tell you right now that we will not be afraid to use ugly measurs in terms of defending Mr.Recchi and his family."

"I will tell you right now that there is no way that we will stand for this kind of defamation, there is no way these people will get away with their vicious attacks against Mark"

"These evil human beings are going to have to watch they´re backs at all times, and they should be frightened, because we will seek payback, and it will not be pretty"


"Mark Recchi is a future hall of famer and does not deserve to go through all of this."

The Rug will be playing in this year's Alumni game.

No word if recchi plans on covering his bald head of the ice and then on the ice when his helmet flips of his balding head is exposed ala Newman asking to try on a new hat recently bought from a flea market while trying to pick up a woman complimenting the hat

from hfboards:
I'm pretty sure it came from after the chara hit on pacioretty, pacioretty tweeted he was at a movie. recchi said he couldn't have been that injured/concussed if he's going to movies. hence him giving medical advice, him earning an honourary phd.

The Doc made some comment about how Pacioretty should not be going to the movies like two days after getting such severe injuries

I think what it did was pulled keywords from Yahoo questions and attempted to make it into a webpage.
