Rumour has it that Semin just had his nails done and was angry at Staal for chipping his new acrylic finish.

And to think we were all impressed with Semin after giving Crosby the business in the media and then proving it with his stats on the ice earlier this year

He did fine for a guy who is a sniper. I'm not seeing the slapping. The "bongos" are just rapid punches that aren't necessarily connecting--if you're not used to fighting it's easy for your hands to open when you're hitting someone. Get a reality check peeps. thumbdown.gif

While I understand defending a finesse player when it comes to dropping the gloves, you gotta admit that looked like watching a 4 year old turtling from his 5 year old sister's temper tantrum attack....
thanks offsides!

Conclusion:

- Semin isn't fighting manly
- He should be more manly
- It's important to hit properly
- It's nicer to watch manly men hitting properly than unmanly men slapping

because the outcome is so frustratingly out of their control."

At least they actually fight dry.gif

Fight Totals:

23 Pittsburgh Penguins 23
24 Ottawa Senators 20
25 Florida Panthers 20
26 Montreal Canadiens 19
27 San Jose Sharks 18
28 Washington Capitals 18
29 Carolina Hurricanes 16
30 Detroit Red Wings 7

You call that a fight?
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

I heard about that fight between you and your mum about eating sweets after 9pm. Now that was a real fight.

Hell, even I can throw a punch better than that. That was embarrassing.

By the way, anyone care to join me in a rousing chorus of the "Meow Mix" theme???

Aaah s***, i shouldn't have watched that in the office! I'm only lucky that my boss had leaft early, otherewise I'd have had to explained what Iwas laughing so hard I couldn't see at. I think Semin should get an award for best comedy performance...brilliant

Not that staal was so much better for a much bigger guy. I think our entire lineup would do a better job than that...as we say last year, dats can throw a punch. 2 guys even the 2009 version of mac could beat the crap out of! Though fair play to Semin for at least standing up for himself in some way....

Well, the thought was there for Semin, the effort was there as well, the technique, not so much. I kinda compare it to this. tongue.gif





Ah well, we all have our goof ups every now and then.

Semin should take some pointers from Fedotenko, who TKO'd Colby Armstrong with one punch tonight.

Who said euros can't fight in hockey?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
