Definitely headhunting by Roberts. The Pens got dirty when they lost 3-0 to the Rangers in game 4 of that series. Malkin with a couple of slew foots to Paul Mara; so this doesn't suprise me one bit. They are a team of low-class sore losers. I hate this Pens team with a passion.

I'm surprised by all the shock about this. Gary Roberts is a career cheap shot artist. He hits from behind. He does stuff like this. Nothing new about it really. When you like him, it makes him a "warrior". For the rest of us, it makes him dirty. I'll be glad when he retires.

I saw a quote by a pilot once, talking about an accident that had happened on 3 separate occasions "Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is a trend"

And I counted at least 3 Pens players who took shots at Franzen's head. Low, disgustingly low. So glad that the Wings aren't like that (at least, since Derian Hatcher left).
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

THey interviewed Roberts about it after the game, and he said that Franzen put his shoulder into him, so Roberts put his shoulder back into Franzen, and his shoulder caught is head.

He must have a oddly shaped shoulder. Either that or his human anatomy teacher back in high school was huffing glue.

I would like to see McCarty or Downey out on the first shift against Crosby and give him a little tap to the back of the ankle, just as a warning to the Penguins.

If you are going to go head hunting, how do you feel about your golden boy having off season surgery?

Robert's problem is that he's forgotten that we can all see what happened because it was on camera. Franzen didn't touch him and the didn't get him with is shoulder. He hit him with the hand. I mean seriously Gary? You can't just rewrite history when it's on tape.

Any sort of retaliation by the Wings in game 3 would be silly. Was I pissed with what happened in game 2? Yeah, but it goes to show you how frustrated the pens are and have had no answers for the Red Wings up to this point. Red Wings just need to play like they have been, and if the pens want to goon it up this series will be all over, except for the crying by Crosby and Co. biggrin.gif
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.

Pens are a sore bunch of losers... thinking they owned everything only to be proven wrong, very wrong by a better team. Its obvious that the Pens are on the last page of their playbook already which lists excuses, complaining, fighting and losing as their objectives... and they are executing with perfection.

GO WINGS!

I'm baffled that the league isn't doing anything about this. what if Mac blindsided crosby on the side of the head like that (of course he never would)? Bettman would have suspend him before the finla buzzer sounded....

It's complete bulls**t

Roberts has been reading Pronger's "I never cheap shot, it's the laws of Physics because I'm so tall" excuse book.

Suit up McCarty and put him out there against Roberts right away. But, then again, I don't think you'd even NEED D-Mac when we all saw Roberts get his ass kicked by a non-fighting Euro the other night.

Does Datsyuk have to give his Lady Byng back, now? Are they going to take back his nomination for this year's award, too?

That quote is from Ian Fleming's James Bond book 'Goldfinger'.

"Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, third time it's enemy action."

And you're very right to use it here. Still, I tend to believe that there's less of an intent-to-injure on Mule than an attempt to get under our lads' skins and make them commit a retaliatory action that draws a pen.

Remember, that's what the Penguins own captain has posited as a winning stategy.... refs calling pens on the Wings... rolleyes.gif

Definitely deliberate and a cheapshot! But then again, the whole team was playing dirty. From the hits to Franzen's head, to the almost boarding of Datsyuk. Oh, let's not forget about the slash that knocked Stuart's stick out of his hand RIGHT BEFORE the Pens player shot the puck at the net! Then there was Fleury sticking his rear end out behind the net to slow down Dats. This entire team is nothing but a bunch of LOSERS including the idiot coach who has to resort to whining. I would definitely like to see Kronner line Crosby, Malkin, Malone and Roberts up at the blue line! Either way, the Wings will finish these losers off very soon, they just don't have what it takes to beat Detroit at this time.
Unless they want to be remembered for nothing more accomplished than Gary Roberts' awful, chicken-scat cheap shot left hook to the temple of concussion-recovering Johan Franzen, some kind of magical adjustment that currently seems beyond their capability is needed- Gene Collier Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
