Awesome or too much?

 

Good thing he did it in a home game.

I think it is fine, nice to some some excitement....


It's been a great honor for me to be a player for the Detroit Red Wings, to play for an Original Six franchise. I know I'm far from perfect, but I learned a lot.

I have ZERO problem with it.

 

It was an emotional game (having a game tying goal called back with 1 minute to go).

 

He was excited. Its as simple as that.

 

I think it was great


be about it!

I thought it was over the top because it wasn't the game-winning goal and he avoided celebrating with his teammates.

Personally I don't like to see it, having growth up in a city where stars like Steve Yzerman, Barry Sanders, Lidstrom, etc. would score and go about their business.  However, at the end of the day I don't think it's that big of a deal.  I'm sort of in the "if you don't like it don't do it" camp.  Also, I'd never teach kids to do this either.  But good on him for getting excited and having a hell of a beginning to his career. 

 

Edit:  Additionally, I have a feeling he'll pay for that one the next time he plays the Kings.

I thought it was a bit much (what if they lost the game 30 seconds later in OT)?  I don't have any problem with it though.  I wouldn't come out and suggest it, but if someone is asking?...yeah, I thought it was just a bit much.

 

What was most impressive, though, is how far he was able to slide across the ice before coming to a stop...he seemed to just keep going.

as a one off its not really too overboard. but its teetering towards the outlandish, for me anyway.

 

the Erlers had one called back just before Yakupov scored. and its a late tying goal i get that.…but the game wasn't over eh. you just evened the tally, pretend like you've scored before and intend on scoring again.

 

all im saying is he shouldn't make a habit out of motoring past his teammates to celebrate like that.

The only thing I didn't like was that he ignored his teammates, leaving them in the dust to put the glory on himself. Bad form.

No problem with it, as long as it's not a common occurrence after every goal. It was a big game tying goal, I like seeing the enthusiasm on rare occasions when the situation calls for it.

He plays with heart and energy, it is good to see him rejuvenating the oilers, especially since they have so much young talent that seems to do so little, and he will be the next captain if he keeps energizing the team like that. As long as he doesn't constantly showboat like that (he is very young still, and in the very wise words of yoda "much to learn you still have, my young padawan") I don't see a problem with that, it was his second career goal and it tied up the game with 4.6 seconds left against the reigning stanley cup champs. Can't get much better than that for the kid.

 

What I am upset about though is that he doesn't play for us, he has made his displeasure for canadian players abundantly clear, so he should come to detroit :P

We're always complaining the NHL is too boring. Stuff like this sexes it up, adds some drama, flair, theatricality.

 

Do I want to see him do this after every goal he scores? No. But I don't see how that's an issue. Or is this already a common thing with him??? (Haven't really been following him or the team very closely.)



What was most impressive, though, is how far he was able to slide across the ice before coming to a stop...he seemed to just keep going.

 

Almost like his knees were...oiled....

I wonder if he has someone in his employ to do it for him? perhaps an oiler..?

Oh come on CB, lighten up. I even watched the goal celebration on NHL.com, so we know even those stiffs have no problem with it  :lol:

 

Plus, this came only a couple minutes after a tying goal was waved off. Nice to see Quick and the boys eat some humble pie.

You realize that is a picture of Theo Fleury, the first one to do that slide across the ice after scoring right?
