MacMillan speaks

Greg Rajan has a terrific blog, in which he transcribes a radio interview with Brad MacMillan.

I like MacMillan. He's a class guy, and I don't think he premeditated it. In that respect, I feel very badly for him. He's a passionate player.

I just think you have to be accountable for what you do to a defenseless player. That's why I'm not up in arms over the 22 games he got.

By the way, the video of the MacMillan fight with Dave Van Drunen has been removed. Gee, you think someone in Colorado leaked it and got in trouble?

Just release the video and everyone will move on. This isn't rocket science.
