Russo's short takes

Giguere goes off

Besides saying he was “embarrassed to be here right now,” veteran goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere ripped his Colorado Avalanche teammates to shreds to the Denver Post after a 3-1 loss to Calgary last Monday.

“Some guys are more worried about their Vegas trip at the end of the season than playing the remaining games,” Giguere said. “Quite frankly I don’t care about your Vegas trip right now.”

The Avalanche, and Giguere, responded by trouncing the Ducks in Anaheim, then rallying before losing in a shootout at Los Angeles.

Settle down, folks

Buffalo Sabres agitator Steve Ott told WGR Radio that he and his teammates aren’t happy with the booing from the hometown fans.

“I think it’s completely ridiculous, to be honest with you,” Ott said. “We go into other buildings, we’ve won a lot of games and teams should have the same amount of frustration, sold-out buildings, and it’s funny because they’re continuing to cheer on their team. They stand behind their team. They respect the work ethic and everything else.”

Silence doesn’t work

New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello has a longstanding team policy that he doesn’t talk contract with pending free agents. He has done that with Zach Parise and Scott Niedermayer, and … Brian Rafalski, Scott Gomez, Brian Gionta, Doug Gilmour, Alexander Mogilny and Bobby Holik.

He lost all for nothing. Now the Devils are going down the same path with Patrik Elias and David Clarkson.

“Who wouldn’t want to talk about it during the season?” Elias told the Newark Star-Ledger. “Then you would see they have interest. And, if you like the offer, why wouldn’t you sign? But that never came up here. If it had happened, it would’ve been great, but it didn’t happen. It’s getting kind of late now.”
