PLAYERS: Cam Janssen
TEAMS: New Jersey Devils
New Jersey Devils enforcer Cam Janssen has apologized for a profanity-laced interview in which he made several comments, including one about homosexuals. Janssen, who re-signed with the Devils this offseason but rarely played during the postseason, issued his apology through the team Friday morning. He participated in an internet-based radio show earlier in the week and said he used poor judgment during the course of the show. Janssen says he regrets his action and said he arranged the interview on ''The Thom and Jeff Show,'' noting the Devils had no knowledge of it. ''I would like to apologize for my poor choice of language,'' Janssen said. ''The tone of the interview was very casual and off-color, and I lost focus on what is and is not acceptable and professional. I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by my language.''

Devils' Cam Janssen Goes Off in Uncensored Interview, Compares Kings to 'Fat Broads,' Wants to Hurt People

Cam Janssen doesn't have much of a filter, so when he appears on uncensored Internet radio, fasten your seatbelt. The Devils tough guy appeared on the Thom and Jeff Show -- formerly on 105.7 The Point in St. Louis, now on the Internet -- to discuss a number of topics, including New Jersey's Stanley Cup loss to the Los Angeles Kings. The physical winger was very candid to...

On Cam Janssen’s Radio Interview

I’ve been listening to Cam Janssen’s radio interview and reading responses and reactions for most of the day, and since I have a minute to sit down outside of a work, I want to throw my two-cents into the ring. It’s pretty easy to sum up what Janssen said: idiotic. I don’t personally known Janssen and how he acts on and off the ice, but he certainly did himself no justice...

Todd Cordell: Cam Janssen Apologizes For Anti-Gay Slur

A few days ago New Jersey Devils tough guy, Cam Janssen, went on an uncensored radio show and said some things he undoubtedly now regrets. He went along with an anti-gay slur the host made, and also called the Los Angeles Kings the "fat broads of the NHL". Here is a statement Cam just released courtesy of the Devils PR team: "Earlier this week, I participated...

Cam Janssen's apology still doesn't fix things for the Devils

Cam kind of has a lot to apologize for, really. Cam Janssen needed to apologize for his comments on the Thom and Jeff Show. They were terribly unprofessional, and as I was explaining to someone on Twitter last night, when you're the representative of multi-million dollar businesses like the Devils and the NHL, you need to remember that everywhere you go. This, more so than...

Cam Janssen opens mouth, embarrasses self with classless comments

You know, I never really disliked Cam Janssen while he was on the Blues. Did I think some of his hits could have been a bit cleaner? Duh. Do I think that he's a meathead? Sure, but the sound clips that the Blues fans were treated to were those of the "lovable meathead" variety. Just a goofy guy playing hockey, right? Pride of Eureka, IL and all of that. Is he a good...

Let's Watch Devils Healthy Scratch Cam Janssen Act Like The Idiot We All Know He Is

I don't think anyone would ever accuse Devils' enforcer Cam Janssen of being a Rhodes Scholar. But if there was ever any doubt that his IQ was even smaller than his yearly point totals, surely that has discarded now. Janssen went on Arch City Radio in St. Louis and showed off his intellect (or lack thereof). Arch City Radio already pulled the video from Youtube, presumable...

NHL Offseason: Do the New Jersey Devils Have a “Plan B”?

By: Mike Luciano (@MikeLuci) After the dust settled in the wake of 2012 free agent frenzy and the outcome of the Zach Parise sweepstakes, it reflected the continuation of a turbulent offseason for Lou Lamoriello and the New Jersey Devils. It’s been a field day for the members of the hockey world possessing any form of dislike for the Devils as they’ve lost both of their assistant...

Todd Cordell: NHL Makes First Offer to NHLPA Towards a New CBA, Not a Very Good One

With not much New Jersey Devils news to speak of, I figured I would touch on a much bigger topic that is negotiations between the NHL and NHLPA in hopes of putting together a new collective bargaining agreement. Yesterday, the NHL put forth the first official offer to the NHLPA and it wasn't a very good one for the players - at all. In today's post, I'll take a closer...

Devils brace for post-Parise era

The New Jersey Devils began life after captain Zach Parise wondering how they replace the leadership, grittiness and production of the guy who had been the heart and soul of their team. Parise, 27, signed a 13-year, $98 million contract with the Minnesota Wild. Two seasons ago, Parise played only 13 games because of a knee injury, and, after he had scored 146 goals over the previous...

A team to be proud of on and off the ice

The hockey news flow has come to a grinding halt in mid-July, but on Thursday a couple of non-game related stories attracted the attention of the online fan community.
