There is a difference between enthusiasm (see: Shane Doan when he scores a goal) and over the top enthusiasm - as this celebration was. Granted, first NHL goal, special occasion, I understand... he gets a pass. I just don't want to see that kind of crap all the time in the NHL, like some other sports. I can't stand the show boating in the NBA and NFL, and I certainly don't want it in the NHL.

 

I agree with your point, but again I'd like to say that this this WAS NOT his first NHL goal.  So that's not an excuse.

 

This is what his first goal, and celebration, looked like...


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."

Morris went after someone else (Whitney I think) for yapping at him, not Yakupov.

I think the goal celebration vs the Kings was a bit over the top, but when you think about the context for that goal (game tying goal 5 secs before the end of the game, your teams goal was just disallowed...), I think it was ok. As for the game against the Yotes - I really don't see why it's any kind of a deal. And yeah, Morris went after Whitney.

I would say that Yakupov, or any other player for that matter, should pay very little attention to reaction to their celebrations as long as there is something to celebate. He is on the ice to score goals not to figure out what fans (of other teams) can or cannot stand. My guess is that there are no many Oilers fans who have a problem with Yakupov.

 

If league sees this as an issue they should come up with a penalty for excessive celebration.

Agreed. I want Yakupov to be the next Datsyuk. Not the next Dennis Rodman.

I really have no issue with Yakupov or his celebrations; I simply don't care that much. What I do think, however, is that he just has one of those faces that you want to punch. I'm sure it's completely irrational of me to say so, but he reminds me of Joffrey from Game of Thrones.

All Yakupov did was put his arms in the air and wait for his teammates. Morris should get suspended and a good beat down from an Oiler goon the next time they play if he actually threw those punches at Whitney because of the goal and not because of something that transpired before it. Whitney obviously didn't want anything to do with a fight.

 

Look at all those Oilers jerseys. Ah, Phoenix...lol

Pretty sure Whitney mouthed a F you or F off at 1:35... which is probably why he got punched in the head.

I wasn't trying to say his last celebration was 'excessive'.  It was kind of weird though...kind of like sitting there saying 'come to me'.

Yeah I think it was a response to people getting pissed at his last celebration, as he skated away from his teammates.

Lol - If every player got punched everytime he told someone to F off, the refs would be pretty busy.

 

Something must have been up with Morris - maybe it was building all game, or maybe Whitney said something really bad.  Who cares though, Morris comes off looking like a psychopath
