Too bad we dont have a street justice type on this team.

I never advocate intentionally trying to injure a player, however if the NHL refuses to protect their players then its time for someone on this team to step up and send the message.

We dont have a single guy on this team that is willing to protect his team mates, and that is how you beat the Wings.

Shanny is a corporate kiss ass like Campbell before him, and so it goes.

If the Wings dont send a message by playing determined, physical hockey in game 2 this series is over. Its time for Bert and Kronner to lay some fools out. *** for tat, Holmqvist and Legawand better have their heads up this next game.



I agree, we don't. That is part of why the wings are so banged up right now. They play hard all year. They take the hits & they deliver a few. They simply are not big enough people to dish what they dish & take what they take.

This is a Kenny's team. Kenny has jumped the shark! Come on Jimmy D. We need you right now to salvage the 2012 / 2013 season. Kenny is good, but fixing what we need fixed is not his strength.

Thats why I had posted before the playoffs that we need to bring Stevie Y home. I dont care if we win the cup, its time to bring him home.

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.

Ironically it was the same team that watched Stuart go down with a broken jaw courtesy of a Tom Kostopolous elbow...Later that night after the game it was Zetterberg who said he hopes the league would look into the matter with the hope of a suspension...Looks like this time around telling the teacher about the bully on the playground isn't gonna do squat.

Yes - I too miss those teams that had that "dimension".

Hopefully Kronner will catch him with his head down. God, I miss Vladdy and McCarty sometimes. Not to mention Kocur.

Well, this just means Friday, Zetterberg will wind up and haul off and give Weber a mouth for of composite, right?

Really though, I wonder where Mike Ilitch is in all of this? This is a star player of his, he is definitely NHL royalty (Ilitch) so he should call out the NHL. I never hear an owner complain about anything the NHL rules on. This was obvious a blatant intent to injure and he gets fined $2500? Really? Weber farts $2500...

Without going through this thread, what was the reasoning behind just a fine? I am appalled by the league again, and again and again. This really means that it's ok to headhunt without fear of suspension. The worse part is, the game was over, it was already won, what did Weber gain by doing this? It was just a blatant intent to injure. It wasn't the heat heat of battle, it wasn't an accidental hit to the head. The game was over, the was not even a need for a pat on the ass, let alone a head into a turnbuckle type play... I am absolutely disgusted by the NHL yet is does not surprise me

I'm watching ESPN and even they're outraged by the decision to not suspend Weber. They said it's Shanahan trying to prove he's not biased to his old team haha.

While I agree with everything else you said, the two bold parts will NEVER happen...they'll just enforce with their powerplay and Playoff Franzen...

I'm hoping that if Weber evades the Kronwall Express, Big Bert steps it up and throws down the gloves.

...actaully I want both to happen :hehe:

I hope I haven't missed all the people calling for Shanny's head/him to be fired. Because I know I would hate to miss out on that kind of fun.

what a waste. the fine is the equivalent of fining me 14.67 for something i did. that is an amount so inconsequential it has no impact. similar to the clowe incident, the nhl is showing that it does not care about the douchebaggery that is taking over hockey. these guys obviously dont respect each other or the game, so the league needs to force them to respect it with harsh suspensions and not fining someone 1/300th of their salary...

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

So the next puppet can take his place?

Shanny turned in his man card on this one, I hope its worth it to him.

So does that mean if Bertuzzi grabs hold of the back of Weber's head and drives his face into the boards he only has to pay $2500?

So, here's what I'm thinking.

If WWF-esque "headslamming" is more or less ok, why not consider working it into our game? I mean, we may not be very physical, and we may tend to shy away from the rough stuff along the boards and in the corners - but that's sort of the point, really. It doesn't take an especially big frame, or GRIT!, or balls of steel, or fighting prowess, etc. to "headslam" a guy. So, hey: this could be The Great Equalizer for us with respect to hard-nosed physicality - and we don't have to waste a roster spot on an enforcer-type! :rockstar:

The league needs to fold. It wont even protect its assets. In all honesty, I hope after the lockout it does fold. I have been watching the NHL for 30+ years and I can tell you this league doesnt even resemble the hockey I grew up watching. Since the lockout Bettman and Co have completely ruined this game.



I hope they fold and the teams that actually make money form their own league. Betman and Lemeiux can have their own little league. One where no one makes any money and only Crosby is protected.

I just realized that Tortorella got fined $20,000 for saying controversial things.

And then Weber gets fined $2,500 for targeting someone's head.

I'm sure in some other universe that's fair. Still not surprising though.

Unleash Bertuzzi. If he reminds Weber what he's capable of, he erases the debt for what he did to Moore in my eyes.

I find it very hard to believe his helmet was cracked in two places. Sounds like an ad-lib by a reporter.

Maybe his visor was cracked, which I could see...but those helmets are made to withstand much worse blows than that.


Oh yeah? Somehow I don't find it hard to believe it was your screen name attached to this post.
