Karma police

Shame on the Canucks TV announcers, namely John Garrett.

Back in November, the NHL announced the four-game suspension handed out to Mattias Ohlund for his Paul Bunyan-like axing of the Wild's Mikko Koivu.

At the time, Mr. Garrett had the gall to say he thought the suspension was too stiff and that the Wild were embellishing Koivu's injury.

Mikko Koivu missed 24 games! That's no embellishment. That's a fact!

Now I see that Ohlund has missed a number of games with back spasms. Do I feel vindicated? No. Do I believe in karma? Very much so.

See you in the playoffs.
