    What an absolute idiot. He managed to not just insult every single local person who is attending this event but all of his fans back in Medicine Hat as well. It's pretty easy to see why a number of professional sports teams don't let their players have Twitter accounts.

    Seriously, Etem will not focus on that. I think he's more surprised about the fact that he makes the team :sarcasm:

    What a dick. I hope he fails, I grew up in Buffalo... and I am just completely insulted. :rant:

    Buffalo is a beautiful city, filled with things to do :).

    Pretty sure nobody will boo him, and I'm pretty sure nobody will care. He said nothing about the people in Buffalo, why should they take offense to it, oh right, they won't. They probably realize he's right. And then there's the fact that not that many people will even know about this.

    Talk about blown out of proportion.

    What's the big deal? I know several people who would agree. Do you really ***** out everyone who hates your city? And he does have a right to talk about crap cities, he lives in a crap town on the edge of a crap county. If anything I'd call him an expert. Lol

    Buffalo isn't the worst city, maybe 2nd though. That honor goes to Cleveland.

    Jochen Hecht also dissed Buffalo pretty badly when a German TV show did a segment on him a while ago. :D

    Yeah, Medicine Hat's proximity to the United States was always one of it's main short comings.

    How did he insult "every single local person who is attending this event"?

    Do we even know if this is his official twitter account? Or are we jumping to conclusions again.

    Unfortunately for him, he didn't realize that the public of today would prefer you blow smoke up every possible ass as opposed to speaking your mind.

    Agreed on all accounts.

    As for the city debate, I've been to Buffalo before and I don't see how it's that bad. Every city has positives and negatives.

    Regardless of your opinions on the cities, what a stupid comment. How is that supposed to make Medicine Hat fans feel?

    Immature comment, but he's from Los Angeles. The total opposite of Buffalo.

    People in Medicine hat will probably laugh it off, realizing I'm sure that they live in a dump.

    Funny how people complain that hockey players are boring yet jump on any player who dares say something other than the same overused cliches.

    How about just honest! That's what he thinks and who cares!

    We all know that the economies of cities in the rust belt such as Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit... have been hit hard economically.

    With lots of people off work for the Holidays there's probably even less people downtown Buffalo when the games aren't going on. And with the college kids also on break the areas of Buffalo with much of the nightlife are probably also dull and empty. So he's probably right that it appears to be ghost town.

    lol pretty funny. This looks like a promising twitter.

    I've been to Buffalo and I basically agree with him. Just my opinion, though.
