I don't remember writing anything like that.
And there is no more WWF.
My apologies... it was not you that wrote that but one of the other pro-goonies in that thread. I know there is no WWF anymore but since I stopped watching it when it was still WWF it has remained WWF to me. Superfly Snuka was awesome!

Ok, I dont care much for a staged fight like May and Barch but fighting off a faceoff for something that happened earlier in a game is fine. A 4th line fighter can be fond who is a heavy weight and not a liability, people on this board have an impression of fighters that isn't entirely true because Holland signs washed up scrap for one season instead of just filling a role.
Well May is who I was referring too with some staged fights with Barch etc.
Downey I could careless, he was not a solid hockey player. I want a player that gets into fights because he pisses off the other team with his physicality not because he has a reputation as a "heavyweight". I want a player that can contribute on the 4th line and not be a liability.
A player worth his salt isn't going to be intimidated by an enforcer in today's "instigator rule" times. Matt Cooke would prefer the other team dress a pure fighter so he can ignore him all night trying to draw the penalty while running the defenseman on the forecheck.
I just do not believe a pro athlete will be discouraged to play physically because the other team dressed a player that punches people well. If a person's job is to hit people, he's going to hit people. I just don't believe dressing an enforcer prevents any aggressiveness from the opposing team.
Now maybe youre right, it wouldnt stop Matt Cooke because he is the biggest scum bag in the league, but it would stop other people. The last couple seasons Corey Perry gets about 3 fights a season and every time one comes against the wings at least. Why is it that he acts much tougher against the wings then any other team. Why are punks like Bobby Ryan trying to kill our top pairing defenseman from behind. Why have our stars like Datsyuk and Hossa had to fight?
If our team even added more guys like Abdelkader, the ******* of the league wouldn't try to act tough against us, which would make this team a lot better off
RIP BOB PROBERT #24

And that is the right WWF to support.

Mainly because of the resemblance between Fairy and Farkus, they could be brothers.
Don't be a homer now.
He didn't exactly kick Perry's ass.
Let's face it, anything less than a lopsided beatdown by Perry has to be considered an upset in this matchup, I'm sure that is what the Fairy was expecting to happen. Good on Pavel for not only standing his ground, but actually displaying some decent fighting technique.

Datsyuk exercised a demon tonight. Perry's a humungous ***** and Dats finally called his bluff, exposing him for what he is.
There's no doubt in my mind that Dats has picked up some tips from Boogie. Knowing to get the grab arm locked, using it as leverage to dodge big punches coming his way, maintaining his balance so he doesn't get clocked, throwing the overhands and going uppercut when Fairy tried to duck under, changing to throw lefty when the fight dictated it, and finally taking him down at the end. Great showing by the Lady Binger!
I was expecting a Dats beatdown or even a Semin-like showing but Dats held his own. Great job!
When Perry got Pavel's helmet off so easily, and without contest, I was worried that Pavs was a deer in the headlights and would take a few hard ones then never recover and have to turtle or tackle. I was worried, and then suprised and then really excited and had to watch it a few more times. I think once the lid came off, Pavs thought "Holy s***, this aint Scott Neidermeyer, it's ON". After that, Pavel looked like he knew what he was doing. Perry was unloading in the eafly going but Pavs kept moving his head and moving his grab arm so Perry's punches were glancing off it a lot. Pavel didn't back down, he didn't go for the tackle, he didn't turtle, he didn't bongo out like Semin; he went toe to toe with a big Canadian boy and at the very least, held his own.
I gotta admit, i'm looking forward to Don Cherry's commentary on this. Is he going to praise Perry for sending a message of will he admit to the courage, heart, and skill displayed by one of the most highky skilled Europenas to ever play the game.
Thanks for this post, Esteef, I had to wade thru two and half pages of ridiculous enforcer arguement to find this little nugget of an analysis by you. The most awesome openning game in years and these guys still find something to fight about.

Corey Perry just became the first guy in NHL history to lose a fight to a four time Lady Byng winner
This needs to be sig'd

I just don't want our star player getting hurt in a fight.
Isn't that important?
If you understood hockey better, then you'd know why those staged fights occur.
couldnt agree more. i love datsyuk going out and doing this, but i was watching behind a cringe, fearing he would get dragged down on his head or have a (lucky) punch give him a concussion
This just in, Stevie gives Canada the Order of Yzerman. Country bows and feels unworthy.

I trust my enforcer to Pavel Datsyuk....You should too.
what a night. Datsyuk opens the 2010-2011 season w/ a gordie howe hat trick.

I'm wondering what the aforementioned Mr. Cherry is going to say as well. He'll probably try ripping Pasha apart for picking on his "good Canadian boy", when what he should do is give credit where credit is due, and give Pasha his props. Me, I'm proud of him for standing up and giving just as well as he took. I think he did himself proud. He didn't start the fight but he damn well finished it.
I'm proud of you, sweetie.

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.
Please put Smith on the Power Play!

Pavs probably speaks enough English to understand what Fairy was saying nowadays.
Someone pissed in Pavel's borscht this morning....
Or maybe he finally found that clip where Perry was taunting him from the 2007 playoffs.
