This.

I like hockey because it's a team sport and players celebrate together after goals. They acknowledge the guy who made a great pass, or took a huge hit to make a play that ended up in their goal.

Some personality is fine, but that was assinine. I don't want hockey to go the way of football. Where nearly every friggin tackle or completed pass involves a player's preplanned signature move.


Leaving the bench was a nutball move by Downie. This warranted a scrum. Not coming off the bench.

I really don't know whats worse, being a poor winner or a poor loser? Both teams look ridiculous if you ask me. If you don't like being scored on Vinny work on your defence.

Just for the record, both teams thought it was pretty classless, even his teammates didn't want to defend it.

I understand Canadians are robots, but I like a little personality in the NHL. Plus, he was no where near the goalie, so I don't get what running Miller has to do with anything.

I dunno, Canadians are raised in hockey to not do that kind of s***. I expect that from football players. Pretending to shoot a goalie and tainting him isn't acceptable.

One of the first things you learn in hockey, is always protect your goalie. Whether hes getting hit or taunted, you always stick up for the tendy. You get taught that in novice

Protect from what? I don't get it at all. Sad thing Anisimov hadn't a real rifle. Then, those bustard would have had a reason to protect his goalie.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

There's just a long standing tradition and code regarding goaltenders and goals in general.

Like how players never shoot the puck into the net at the end of plays or after the whistle or anything. It would be an immediate brawl, even though the play is dead. You just don't do it. Just like taunting the goalie after a goal isn't really done. At least not that openly.

Most celebrations I have no problem with, but this one isn't just a young kid being excited. It's ridiculous and pre-planned and all about himself. If stuff like this became commonplace in hockey it would probably do more to dissuade me from watching than if they took out fighting. Hockey players are among the toughest, most highly skilled, hardest working and team oriented athletes there are. Part of what's great about the game is what these guys do as a team and for their teammates.

If it went the way of football with the celebrations, it would lose one of the better qualities the game has.


I'd take Steve Yzerman jumping so hard into Shanahan that he breaks his nose a million times over a player dancing over a stick pretending it's on fire, or kneeling down pretending he's a sniper shooting the goalie.

People are actually defending this disgusting display? Can't wait to see what the Don has to say about this on Coaches Corner and also hope someone on Tampa "gets" Asiminov next time they play.

Good on Tampa for sticking up for their goalie. If Asiminov did that to the Wings no one would have done jack s***, Jimmy would have to do it himself.

Maybe next time a goalie makes another save on Ovie, he should drop his stick and pretend to spray lighter fluid on it and set it back on fire.

Exactly my point. And one of the handful of reasons I don't watch soccer.

A goalies game is 90% mental.

You got guys rattling him with cellys like that and if your goalie is lacking in mental toughness the floodgates could open.

Goalies are a strange breed. There has always been a code regarding them and teammates defending them, you never taunt a goalie or you get it.

Good for Tampa on backing their goalie and letting the tendy know the captain and team have his back

That celebration should be reserved for a top shelf one timer at the top of the circle ala Brett Hull back in the day, not a lazy tap in.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I laughed when I first saw the taunt. With the way they reacted i'm surprised it didn't clear benches and the 2 goalies are center ice.

Reminds me of Selanne with an all time great celebration. Downie is an idiot and nice sucker punch by Stamkos. I don't get why all the TBL players got their panties in a bunch over that little celebration Posted Image Oh well, the Tamp Bay Yzermans are still my favorite team in the East.


Agreed on all counts. Anisimov's celebration was over the top (and definitely not something I'd like to see from a Wings player) but no more so than Selanne or Theo Fleury's famous celebrations.

I can see why there was a scrum after that taunt but it was no excuse for a sixth man to leave the bench looking for a fight.

You know why those are famous celebrations...

Fleurys was a game 6 OT winner against their biggest rival back when both teams were still sick.

Selannes was on a record breaking rookie goal I thought?

Anisimovs was on a tap in during a meaningless regular season game that he did none of the work for

One of these things is not like the others.

I really don't care much either way, but...

I find it interesting that most people here are saying this gesture is perfectly fine, but most people here were saying how out of line and uncalled for the Asham KO "goodnight" gesture was after his fight earlier this year. I guess I'll never fully get the LGW crowd, lol.

That's awesome. Hugs the guy, gets punched in the face then skates to his teammates while smiling. Epic.
