I still hate him, I wouldn't want anyone from the Avs or Blues on the Wings ever. If it makes people feel any better, I would still have him even if he saved a church load of nuns and puppies from a fire.

I would rephrase that - one of those guys you hate when he plays your team, and love the rest of the time. I still think that signing him and Betts were such good moves.


Not me, I think he's a piece of s***, making him the perfect fit for the Flyers.

Guy's putting his face in front of a slap shot when his team is up 3-0 in a series clinching game. That's what playoff hockey is all about. :clap:

Actually, playoff hockey is about sacrificing the body, but knowing how to block a shot. They guy needs to learn not to face the puck or wear a face sheild. He should know better considering he did the same thing earlier this year. Maybe he's so dumb he can't pass shot blocking 101

If you block a shot without visor you gotta have face down ice or something to avoid the puck hitting you straight in the face...and do this quickly because he can fake a shot and then you aren't really in the game for a few secs... :huh:

Lappy is 100% warrior. He has made a career out of doing what nobody else wants to do. He isn't big, isn't a great fighter, isn't all that skilled (though he's no slouch either) but he will do absolutely anything for the team anytime. Fight a guy 50lbs bigger than him? Sure. Block a puck with his head? More than once. Be one of the league's only agitators not afraid of backing up his talk? No problem. 1st line? Sure. 4th line? Sure. Dude just flat plays to the best of his ability every single night. He's a gamer.

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."

Wear a face shield? Learn to block shots? He was turning his face as it hit him. Have you ever blocked a shot, I would love to see you not face it when you first go down for the block. You gotta make sure its getting released or get up really quick and get back in position. The guys tougher then our whole team combined for god's sake and you're saying he's dumb. Pfft ya right.

Anyone see Mike Fisher of Ottawa headbutts Fleury of Pittsbrugh last night. Not Bob Probert style, but he did break Fleurys nose, he should be suspended.

What an idiot. I for one am happy our players are smart enough not to block a puck with their face when their up 3-1 in a first round playoff series...
Not now chief, I'm in the zone.

Unless youre talking about a different play, Fisher got pushed into Orpik and shouldn't have even got a penalty let alone a suspension.

Certainly not 4 minutes for drawing blood when it came from the helmet. That was matching minors - end of story.

He's always been a team guy, but I've never really liked him, even before the whole Lidstrom hit.

He's always been a boring fighter to watch and has a lot of non-fighters on his fight card. Also, he has to be a candidate for the "Mike Ricci Award".
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
