When I ask if anyone else feels bad for him, I don't mean we should start a support fund, it has nothing to do with money, it has to do with his career as an athlete...


yeah, i know. i'm just feeling sorry for myself. i'll stop that right now.

i feel bad for travis roy.

Cool, thanks for clearing that up and for the trivia.

Well, because of the game misconduct. It should go down as the 5th shutout in NHL history not credited to a goaltender, only the team.

Just think of how worth it, it will be once you're done with your graduate degree though... nothing in life worth having comes easy! Doesn't sound pleasant, but you'll get through it stronger and more appreciative of what you have when it's done!

As for Travis Roy, that is at the top of the list... like if you had to rank feeling bad for an athlete and the poor luck they've been dealt on a scale of 1-10, with 1 feeling little to no pity and 10 making you almost well up when you think about it, Roy is a 12...

That's kinda a good way to put it in perspective - On that exact scale, I feel about a 5 for DiPietro, a 7 for Marc Savard, a 10 for Steve Moore and a 12 for Travis Roy...

Saw the highlights for this late last night. I dislike Matt Cooke just as much as anybody in here but I have no clue if he did anything in the game to warrant what DiPietro did to him, cause it was a bit over the top.

As for the punch, it didn't even look like Johnson hit him hard, just in the right spot perhaps.

The poor bastard in question was Biron. Emery is insane.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xqUbxr1Fbg

He fights Peters after Biron and has this bats*** insane Joker grin the whole time.

Emery is definitely Hextall caliber crazy.

He can handle himself in a fight, but I still think his teammates should've been all over Peters when he started fighting Emery. A second fight, and in goaltender equipment. Not exactly an even match.

Speaking of Andrew Peters, is he still around? Last I heard he was in Vancouver's AHL affiliate in Manitoba.

So where do you put Alexei Cherepanov and Jiri Fischer on that scale?

Watching DiPietro vs Johnson back on NHL.com, there follows a lot of videos about other good/unusual fights, including Datsyuk vs Perry - I guess because Dats never drops the gloves yet still held his own. After watching them all, and it pains me to say, Crosby is a pretty darn good fighter and quick smart too when it comes to scrapping.

And yes Emery is a nutcase. The fact that he smiles when he's about to fight, almost teases Biron when he's on the ice, and then laughs when he's getting beaten by Peters. Just nuts.

Ehh, beat me to it. Anyone suprised by this? This dude breaks easier than Manny Legace after a playoff loss :ph34r:

If your Garth Snow, what do you do right now? He already looks like a fool for the Nabokov saga. Why not semi-redeem yourself and acquire another goaltender and drop Nabokov. Suck up the pride and do it because its better for your team. Martin Gerber? Ray Emery? Speaking of Manny, isn't he available? Heck, call Kenny about Larsson (even though the Nabokov saga probably left a 3 day old green bean casserole-esque taste in Holland's mouth). I'm sure one of these goalies would love to show what they got to possibly garner a decent contract somewhere next year...except Nabby, he will probably be an Islander slave until the trade deadline next year:hehe:

Exactly. Every time I think of DiPi, I now think of Elijah Price.

Honestly this makes his Nabby signing look like a smart move to me. We all knew Dipietro would be out with an injury, though I didn't even expect it to be so soon and in such idiotic fashion. So he currently has a solid goaltender in Nabokov signed at a bargain price. Don't forget Nabby's agent said he'd play anywhere. To me, Snow doesn't look like a fool at all in this case.
