Toch Block?

Jim Kelley broke out some reality with his punny title, Don’t bet on Tocchet’s return.

It’s being played that Tocchet really didn’t do much wrong, but he did plead guilty regarding his involvement in the betting ring and that will come up every time the Coyotes come to town if he were to be reinstated as a coach. The view from here is that Bettman won’t be cutting Tocchet any real slack anytime soon.

Indeed.  The league is going to have to wait and see what public perception is, because in the end that is what will rule.  The public seems to have forgiven Tocchet, but that doesn’t mean the public will forgive the league for allowing someone who plead guilty to being involved in a sports-related gambling ring, to have an influence in determining game outcomes.
