Jeremy Roenick breaks down Stanley Cup Final
NBC NHL analyst Jeremy Roenick joined the show to break down the Stanley Cup Final and discuss Aaron Rome’s hit on Nathan Horton.
Roenick and Dan agreed that Aaron Rome’s suspension was partially overreaction because they under-reacted to the biting incident. But Roenick said Rome is guilty — he could have held up, and it makes sense he’s out of the series.
Roenick said that it’s fortunate for Horton that the season is coming to an end, because it takes a long time to recover from concussions. He said that this will give Horton’s brain time to heal — although he’ll have to work pretty hard this summer.
Roenick thinks that the Bruins feel they’re the better team and that they should have won one of the first two games in Vancouver. “They’re going to continue to pound Vancouver as much as they can,” Roenick said.
Roenick, however, did say Vancouver winning would probably be the better story, because the Canucks have never won one and it would end the Canada drought.
