Off-colour comment riles up Sens?

Just over five minutes later Chris Neil and Buffalo's Adam Mair went toe-to-toe. The Senators had a score to settle with Mair, who they believed crossed the line when he brought up the deceased Dan Snyder to Dany Heatley last Thursday.
If true, this is an unfortunate development in what has evolved into a pretty heated rivalry in the Northeast Division. I'll be curious to see if any Sabres/Senators fans can shed more light on just what was said regarding Snyder.

They mentioned that on Sportscenter earlier. Apparently that was the reason why Mair went to the Sens locker room to apologize to Heatley after the game in Buffalo. Heatley supposedly accepted the apology, but neither player seems willing to discuss the issue any further.

Mair and Snyder were teammates back in Owen Sound. Allegedly, Mair called Heatley the 'M' word when things got a bit heated out there.

Tell me again why it's unfortunate? By all accounts, Heatler is a big trash talker on the ice. Fair's fair. if Mair wanted to apologize, good for him. But actions have consequences, and they don't disappear just because we want them to.

I don't think it shows much class to call a man a murderer as part of your 'gamesmanship.'

I'm with Andy on this one. I didn't drive my car 150 mph through a school zone with my best friend in the passenger seat, so last time I checked nobody's trash talking me on it. By the way, does "M" stand for "murderer?" or something else?
Snyder's dead. If he was my teammate in Owen Sound, I'd still be mad about it too.
Heatley's a one-eyed chicken-s*** millionaire who actually defended his complete lack of testicles when questioned why he and four of his cowardly teammates allowed their No. 1 goalie to get a beatdown at the hands of Juice Monkey Peters.

I love the irony of calling someone "one-eyed chicken-s***" anonymously.

No doubt that crossed the line, and good on Mair to apologize, because he obviously realizes that it was not the right thing to say.

Well, Heatley certainly doesn't resuscitate people...and you can't call him Lazarus either. The guy got away with vehicular manslaughter at the very least, anything said to him is fair game.

"anything said to him is fair game."

I don't think that's true, for anybody in any situation. It's one thing to be smack talking one another but calling someone a "murderer" implies malicious intent. Not that I want to bring the whole issue up again but it was an accident and Heatley has to live with that responsibility everyday. Mair doesn't have any right to try to make it about him and I think it shows a lot of class on Heatley's part that he actually accepted Mair's apology.

Peters hardly gave a beatdown to Emery.

Mair is a punk.

Heatley is a murderer! You can't defend how he got drunk and smashed his car into an expressway median, killing an innocent friend. He has to live with that. And sometimes I wonder why we give him any celebrity. He doesn't deserve it. If Mair is a punk then Bill Cosby is the Anti-Christ.
