Dude, that's AWESOME laugh.gif

Hudler!!


"If you didn't know him, and saw him without hockey gear, you'd never suspect Datsyuk to be a world-class athlete. He walks a bit hunched over. His gait is somewhat crab-like, almost like he's still skating, even on dry land.

But put him on skates and he's Houdini on ice. He is not the fastest skater by a long shot, but there can't be too many who are stronger or more flexible. Checking him has to feel like checking Gumby. You might get a piece of him, but he bounces away, moving faster thanks to the leverage he gained from your check."

Anyone see that video on Red Wings TV? "My Life" (1993) and "My Sister's Keeper" (2009) made Brad May cry. Seriously, good for him.

They're ******* in the sense they fight for no reason. THIS is why fighting should be banned. Go watch Pacqi and Cotto if you want to see a fight. If it serves a 'purpose', then fine. Otherwise the NHL might as well be run by Coach - all fighting and no Euros.



Now I know you're just trolling here, but I'll entertain your post anyway.

I've heard lots of people be called ******* for lots of different reasons, but exactly how are either May or Barch "*******" for what they did here - I'm not familiar with the word being used to describe "one who fights with insufficient cause durring a hockey game. If that were the definition of being a *****, than certainly Bob Probert and Joey Kocur and Darren McCarty and Brendan Shanahan and Chris Osgood are *******. There really isn't anything ***** about inviting large,strong, professional atheletes to try their best to knock you out. Regardless of why you do it (in this case, it appears as if they fought for fun, and the crowd certainly seemed to enjoy it as well), that can't really be called "*****".

"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

Fights in hockey don't really ever happen for "no"reason. Fighters must fight to be effective. You are not a credible enforcer if you do not demonstrate the willingnes and ability to fight. similarily, it is very hard to be the best scrapper you can without actually fighting. hitting the heavey bag is not enough to make one a good hockey fighter. Most people have to fight and fight alot to get good at it and to stay good at it.

They were saying during the game that they'd had a history of fighting each other in the past - and apparently were nominated for 'feud of the year'. Barch wound up calling May (I think?) and trying to swamp the polls so they'd win laugh.gif

Plus they talked about it before a game and later on after they fought Brad yells out something to the effect of "WE'RE #1 BABY!"
