Neely talks Olympic hockey on D&H

Bruins vice president Cam Neely joined Dale & Holley from Vancouver Friday afternoon to talk Olympic hockey, the NHL and the state of the Bruins.

 Neely said he does not think the two-week layoff for the Olympics 
is a good thing for the NHL as a whole. “It doesn’t really promote the 
NHL,” he said. “The individual players get recognition, obviously the 
countries as a team get recognition, but it’s not so much for us.” 


 

Neely also commented on the game’s international rules, chiefly those 
against fighting: “I still like the intimidation factor of, 'If 
I do something, is this guy going to drop his gloves?' I think it gives 
you some checks and balances there.”



 

Neely discussed a potential USA-Canada rematch in Sunday's Olympic 
final. 
Though Neely thinks Canada has the more talented team on paper, the 
play of U.S. goalie Ryan Miller has caught his eye....

Caserio: 'Good' talks with Wilfork

Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio said the “communication has been good” between the franchise and representatives of nose tackle Vince Wilfork as both teams try to reach an agreement on a long-term contract. “I know Mr. Kraft made those statements and we put the statement out the other day,” said Caserio, who was asked about the connection between Wilfork's situation and the new deal signed by Pittsburgh nose tackle Casey Hampton. “I’m not really going to expound too much further. I would say the communication has been good. It’s been ongoing.” Wilfork was franchised by the Patriots earlier in the week, but both teams have expressed hope that they will be able to reach an agreement on a long-term deal for the nose tackle.

Nate on D&C: 'Only God can judge me'

New Celtics guard Nate Robinson was a guest of the Dale & Holley show Friday morning and addressed his falling-out with Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni before he was traded to Boston. "Me and Coach had a great relationship, that's why I'm not really sure what happened," Robinson said. "Coach is a great guy. He's a great coach. He does everything his way. As players, you've definitely got to respect that. And I respected him and his decisions. Him putting me on the bench was his decision. I couldn't argue against it. So, I had to sit there and wait my turn and be patient." Added Robinson: "I didn't seek a trade."

 

Asked about the negative perception many people (including co-host Michael Holley) had of Robinson — at least prior to his arrival in Boston — Robinson said: "Everybody has their own opinion. Me, I'm the type of person I don't really care what people think about me. If you like me or not...

Patriots will meet with ND's Tate
By: DJ Bean

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Patriots were second on a long list of teams Notre Dame receiver Golden Tate said he would meet with at the NFL combine. Such meetings are common and too much should not be read into this. The receiver also said that it would be a "dream" to be reunited with former Fighting Irish coach Charlie Weis in Kansas City. For more updates from Indianapolis, check out the Patriots blog, It Is What It Is.

Mashup: Canadian party criticized

At the Olympics Thursday in Vancouver, Canada defeated the United States for the gold medal in women's hockey. That went over well in Canada. The team's celebration, however, wasn't as well-received. After a half-hour in the locker room, the players returned to the ice and partied with champagne, beer and cigars. "I don't think it's a good promotion of sport values," said Gilbert Felli, the IOC's executive director of the Olympic Games. "If they celebrate in the changing room, that's one thing, but not in public. We will investigate what happened." Canadian executives apologized for the display — which included at least one underage player clutching a beer — but noted that it's not an uncommon celebration in their country. Read more about that, plus check out links to all the day's top stories, plus videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup...

Minor Details Ep. 94.2 with Jim Callis of MLB.com: Are Red Sox prospects overvalued?

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread. Jim Callis of MLB.com joins the show to take stock of the matter, and to discuss the team-building impact of overrating and underrating prospects.

Minor Details Ep. 94.1: Are prospects overvalued? Andrew Miller on being traded for Miguel Cabrera

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.

Ian Browne reflects on 10th anniversary of Red Sox-Yankees brawl

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
