NHL parts ways with Kevin Smith, too controversial for blogs
By Greg Wyshynski

For the second postseason in a row, writer/director/puckhead Kevin Smith agreed to be part of's roster of celebrity bloggers for the Stanley Cup playoffs, following his beloved New Jersey Devils.

He had quite a first act to follow: In 2008, Smith asked women dating "misogynistic" New York Rangers fans to withhold sex until the following season. So to kick off his blogs this season, the man who gave the world the delightfully vulgar "Clerks" and "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" informed readers that he would be swapping out "potentially offensive terminology" with the "kindler, gentler, more family-friendly and NHL-approved term 'Gretzky' (or a derivative/conjugation of Mr. Gretzky's names) instead."

As in: "Devils in 5. you if you don't believe me."
