I agree, no biggie.  I know if that was the Wings and they scored I'd be flipping my wig like the crowd there was, so no harm to me.  Like others said, it was kind of iffy to skate past your team like that though.

I remember Tatar acted like a moron on his first goal. Yakupov will score a lot more so im willing to let a little unnecessary excessiveness go on his first few.

He did what???

On purpose irony I assume?  I admit that I thought of the Fleury celbration where he went from one end of the ice to the other, sliding most of the way and flipping over.  At least his was an OT playoff winner though.  Calgary then lost the series in the next game.

He was pulling the logo up on his jersey, proud to be doing that for the Wings....

 

How does Nail scoring more mean he gets to be more excessive?  Wouldn't it be the other way around if Tatar isn't going to score as much?

No. If you can walk the walk, then talk the talk if you wish. Tatar is a minor leaguer.

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 guess Stevie didnt celebrate on his doublt ot goal in St Louis?? Whether someone celebrates or is low key its all the same. The line is when your taunting your opponents and he didnt cross it. Its ok in the sport to punch people in the face but not celebrate a goal? I loved the reaction and personally would love to see it more in the league. As long as your not running around pointing your stick at opponents its great.

 

It was quite the skillful goal as well.

I thought it was great and want to see more of it with other players.  I wish some of our guys would do that.  He shows he has a passion and love for the game.

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

 

I play hockey, and even though I am in goal, I get excited when my teammates can tie it up before regulation either that or score a game winner.  Hockey is an emotional sport if you play it right.  Yakupov is young and it was probably one of the biggest goals he has scored and the home crowd was going crazy.  I have zero problem with a goal celebration like that.

You got me there.  Those two goals in those two situations were exactly the same.  Yzerman was all the time sliding across the ice on his knees and blowing past his linemates.  Good call.  Yzerman = Showboat.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

You're not making any sense.  You said Tatar acted like a moron his first goal and then justified that by saying it's okay for Yakupov to do that because he is going to score more goals......so what you are saying is only 'good' players are allowed to celebrate?

 

You can bet your ass if I am 'not going to score that much', when I did score, I'd be pretty stoked.

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

 

Preeeeetty sure he does. ;)

I have no problem with it at all. I've gotten more excited when the Wings have scored this season. Mostly because we almost never have seen it.

I don't really like yakupov because of his selfish play in the world juniors. If he proves himself to be unselfish in the NHL I may change my mind about him.

This celebration I have no problem with though because it was a really exciting moment and the fans were all jacked up. Plus its only the second goal he's ever scored.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Why are we even talking about this? Some of them good old unwritten rules in hockey are a bit, eh... like something that grandpa would say when his back is hurting again and he's bitter because he doesn't understand the world that's driven past him and left him behind.

It was a very exciting game. Did the rookie take his goal celebration a bit too far? Probably. But he is young and playing in the best league in the world that he has worked his ass off to get too. If it stops now then no biggie. if he does it again Smitty will set him straight. Edmonton is a very exciting team to watch.

And you would be as useless as Tatar.

Thanks for the clarification.  You're point is crystal.  You deflect from the topic because you have no leg to stand on.  We're talking about goal celebrations, not how useful someone would be.
