Mashup: More hate for Canucks

The Canucks continue to make enemies around the NHL. In the latest incident Sunday night, Senators forward Jesse Winchester was checked by Maxim Lapierre against the Canucks bench, and Alex Burrows happened to open the door at the same time, making Winchester fall into the bench area. The video doesn't make it appear intentional, but considering it's noted agitators Lapierre and Burrows who are involved, it's drawing a lot of interest.

"It’s not a safe play," Winchester said. "I was under the impression my butt was against the wall, the next thing I know I’m through the bench. I couldn’t see behind me, I’m not paying attention to what’s on the bench."

This comes just days after recently retired Bruin Mark Recchi offered his take on the team the Bruins beat in the Stanley Cup finals in June.

"[In] 22 years they are the most arrogant team I played against and the most hated team I’ve...

Man arrested for alteraction with Rondo

A 31-year-old Haverhill man was arrested early Saturday morning after allegedly attempting to punch Celtics guard Rajon Rondo at a Lowell nightclub.

Rondo was making a paid appearance at Brian's Ivy Hall in Lowell when the incident occured. Eric Valarezo threw a punch at Rondo at about 1:45 a.m and was arrested at the scene. Kevin Hayhurst -- the co-owner of the club -- told the Lowell Sun that members of Rondo's entourage (which included former Celtics guard Nate Robinson and fellow NBA players Josh Smith and Rudy Gay) wrestled Valarezo to the ground after the attempted punch. 

Hayhurst also told the Sun that Rondo was "unpersonable" and "disrespectful toward patrons." 

Valarezo was charged with a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct and will be arraigned on Monday.

Source: Cherington to meet with Valentine

According to a major league source, Bobby Valentine is expected to meet with Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington on Monday. The interview was first reported by Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan, who also notes that if the meeting goes well the 61-year-old Valentine could emerge as the favorite for the vacant managerial position.

A source told WEEI.com on Friday that Cherington spoke with Valentine a few weeks ago but no formal interview has been been scheduled. Multiple reports have stated that Sox ownership had met with Valentine and that others in the ownership group will meet with the former Rangers and Mets manager.

Report: Rex Ryan fined 100K for profanity

According to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, Rex Ryan is expected to be fined between $75,000 and $100,000 for yelling a profanity at a fan while heading into the tunnel at halftime of last Sunday's Jets-Patriots game at MetLife Stadium.

"I obviously, you know, made a mistake," Ryan said Monday. "I was full of emotion and just popped off, and obviously I know I represent the National Football League and I know I represent the Jets. I know it was a mistake and I apologize. This is who I am. I made a mistake."

Ryan was fined $50,000 by the Jets for making an obscene gesture at a mixed martial arts event in Miami in January 2010. Ryan called his actions "stupid and inappropriate."

Perkins: 'It still hurts that I did get traded'

Prior to Rajon Rondo's Boston Charity Classic on the Harvard University campus Saturday night, former Celtics Marquis Daniels, Nate Robinson and Leon Powe all entered the arena to resounding applause, but nobody received a greater ovation than Kendrick Perkins -- not even Rondo himself.

"I never knew how much I missed being here until I got back in here, but I definitely miss the whole city of Boston, the whole area of New England," said the former C's starting center who was traded from the Celtics in February to the Thunder. "It just felt good to be back playing basketball in Boston.

"It's always overwhelming. You try to catch yourself from dropping a tear or something like that, but like I always say, the city has been good to me since I came into the NBA as a young man at 18, so I never take it for granted. I definitely appreciate all the support when I come back to the New England area. I hate to leave, but God does...
