Rick Rypien Gone Wild

Lord knows Rick Rypien plays with a lot of emotion. But it’s one thing for him to channel emotions to spark his team and another to lose control of them.

Rypien should expect a not-so-good morning phone call from Colin Campbell. If the swift reaction on Twitter – from Canucks fans and every other hockey fan alike – is any indication, he should expect a suspension. And especially after ESPN and all those US networks that don’t normally show hockey highlights start playing the clip on their nightly sports shows, expect it be a hefty one.

I’m not sure what the fan said to trigger such a reaction from Rypien, but that’s irrelevant. He lost his cool – and that’s not cool.
