Adam Oates was not too happy with Sharks rookie Tomas Hertl's "disrespect to the league" when he went between the legs to score his fourth goal. Here's Hertl's teammate Joe Thornton to put it all in perspective.


Via The Province:

Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said: “Shut up, have you ever played the game?”

When the press turned his way, he then added: “I’d have my cock out if I scored four goals. I’d have my cock out, stroking it.”


The lesson here is that you can say "cock" in Canadian newspapers.
