Is Billy Tibbetts Cool Enough to Have His Own Urban Legend?

Sweater Ted has an interesting story about Billy Tibbetts’ quick demise and departure from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

So with that background in mind, consider this folk-lore urban legend…

The story dates from one of Tibbetts’ stints with the Penguins, sometime in 2001 or 2002. Billy was often getting called up or re-assigned to the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. The stress, excessive travel and uncertain day-to-day future of being a bubble player was starting to wear on the temperamental man so he was beginning to snap at those around him.

Intriguing read. I thought they cut him because he sucked.
