Unbelievable, and yet, somehow....totally expected.

Yup.

Not wanting to come across as an a$$hole, but what were people expecting; it's playoff hockey afterall.

I've said it numerous times; playoff hockey today really hasn't changed much from what we saw from the late 90's to 2004...Clutch, and grab hockey has been replaced with poor/indifferent officiating which really favors teams that bend the rules, and play a rough/intimidating game.

Nashville fans are crying on their board about the fact that Zetterberg hit Weber first, but even better yet, they are all in an uproar over no discipline to Bertuzzi for punching Gaustad in the face (with his glove on, in a scrum, face to face, like you see 100 times in a game) and they are PUTTING A BOUNTY OUT ON BERTUZZI'S HEAD!!! Read below from the Preds forum:


There is a few fools over on HFBoards saying that Z stomped on Weber's ankle with his skate blade and thats what pissed him off enough to slam his face into the boards. I didn't see a foot stomp, not sure what game they were watching.

"As I stated above, the ruling was too harsh on Weber. Not only that, I can't believe they are letting Z getting away with being such a sissy. I hope Weber creams him into next week in Game 2 so he can REALLY know what it feels like to be hit by a "Weber Slam"


Lol. I took this right from a the Preds forum. Really? I mean are people really so biased towards their team that they think an action like this is cool and part of hockey?
Disgusting on ice behavior ridiculous that he gets a $2,500 dollar fine. That does absolutely nothing. Weber is the captain of his team, and this was just pathetic on his part.

This is why they don't deserve a hockey team in Nashville.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Whatever. I don't agree with the ruling, he deserved a suspension but again whatever. This will fuel an anger the big re machine, and that is not something opponents want so watch out Nashville were coming! Yes the wings will be physical, but no they will not be stupid and reckless, but don't think the s*** that went on to hank and pav won't light a fire under this team. Nashville better be ready for a red wings team they have not seen in a long time cause they thrive off ahit like what happened at the end of the game

There is a few fools over on HFBoards saying that Z stomped on Weber's ankle with his skate blade and thats what pissed him off enough to slam his face into the boards. I didn't see a foot stomp, not sure what game they were watching.


My god all z did was pin him. People today, wow I feel sorry for them.

Weber smashes Zetterberg's head into the glass = $2,500. John Tortorella calls the Penguins arrogant and whiners = $20,000.

The league and Predators have demonstrated what IS important and what is not that much:

* Tortorrela fined 20K for words on you know who;
* Predator player fined 2.5K (8 times less) for slamming opposing player's head to the boards with clear intent to injury;

Note: fuching lawyer Gary was in presence.


Weber smashes Zetterberg's head into the glass = $2,500. John Tortorella calls the Penguins arrogant and whiners = $20,000.

seems like we were writing these at the same time :)

soo... Talk s*** about the Penguins and get fined $20,000. Try to break someones face, get fined $2,500. hmmm?

Coaches aren't unionized, therefore not bound by the $2,500 MAXIMUM fine players are.

What's done is done. Shanny has said this will factor into any other questionable actions Weber takes.

We all knew he wouldn't be suspended, as the NHL makes more exception to their own rules than congress.

Hopefully the Wings make them pay in goals against, and send these Chuckelheads to Dollywood.

Coaches aren't unionized, therefore not bound by the $2,500 MAXIMUM fine players are.

That doesn't matter. The league is the ultimate disciplinarian, be it a coach or a player who needs to be disciplined. Sending a message that a coach who verbally attacks opposing players gets a fine that is 8x more than a player who physically attacks opposing players is stupid, and downright dangerous.

No one out there (be it fan, player, or pundit) believes that the $2,500 is enough to "match the crime". If that's the case, and $2,500 is the maximum fine that can be levied, then a suspension needs to be assessed to pick up where the small fine leaves off.

...seriously? $2500?

That's like pocket change for most hockey players. What a bunch of s***.

They should tack an extra zero on that fine and suspend him for at least one game, if not two. UGH. So pissed right now. :ranting:

Not bad for someone that makes $91,463.41 a game. Poor kids will probably have to go without shoes this year.

And there Hank knelt to collect himself. Alone! This is a Kenny team. Sorry it is hockey. Webber should have been picking himself up off the ice. We don't have that dimension. That's part of why my favorite team will be golfing in 5.

All the Bertuzzi haters we have here. Who else would be able to take on Weber and win in a fight on our team? No one but Bert.

I hope Bert Steve Moore's Weber. I used to like Weber but that was some Bush League BS. $2,500 is laughable when you make as much as Weber.

On a side note: I remember watching the Wings in 08' and seeing the passion and dominance. The slow decline since then, we really need to get younger and faster. It's almost like night and day from 08' to now. That's all.
Not now chief, I'm in the zone.

According to the latest, cracked it in 3 places too. Just a love tap eh? :ph34r:
