Less impressed by the goal than I am by Thornton managing to get in my good books by being hilarious.

Who would have thought the choker was also a stroker?

I say that right now all of the other 29 teams need to make a pact that if they are playing the Sharks and the game is so much of a blowout that they can't possibly win, they need to let Joe get 4 goals just to see if he'll do it.

 

Ten bucks says Todd benches him after 3, just in case.

Might he also be a joker, a smoker, & a midnight toker?

 

Back to Hertl though.  "Act like you've done it before, it's a team sport so don't call attention to yourself, blah, blah blah."  Sure that's one side of it, but these are professional players.  If you don't want someone celebrating after scoring a goal, do your job & don't let them score in the first place.

Just saw this quote from Jumbo Joe regarding Hertl... :lol:
 
Joe Thornton would unzip his pants if he scored four goals
Hearing a question to Marleau about Hertl and whether he was showboating, Thornton said:
“Shut up, have you ever played the game?”
.
When the press turned his way, he then added:
“I’d have my cock out if I scored four goals. I’d have my cock out, stroking it.”

Don't tell Joe Thorton.

 

Sorry.  Still have that in my head.

 

 

Anyway... about Adam's comments about Hertl...

 

The shot itself was crazy-good.  I have no problem with that.  He is right that if you do something that amazing when the score is that lopsided, and then celebrate like you scored the GWG with 3.2 left on the clock, people are going to get pissy.

 

I'm not saying that you shouldn't score fancy goals in lopsided games, but if you're a kid who comes in and does it, you're going to put more than a few people in the mindset of "That kid needs to be knocked down a peg or two".  It doesn't matter if that's the right reaction or not; it's the one that is going to happen.

 

Hertl's a kid.  He just did something that few people ever do.  Of course he was excited.  The question is whether this was the One Hot Game in his life or if it was a harbinger of things to come.

 

Is he going to be the Next Great One?  I doubt it, but stranger things have happened in life.  With all of the media attention he's getting now, he's going to need to keep a clear head so that he doesn't either get too big for his britches or get overwhelmed by it. 

 

As far as celebrating goes, hockey players already celebrate- there are big, smelly group hugs and the Line-o-fistbumps.  Sure a guy may get excited and jump in the air or crash the boards.  There's nothing wrong with that.  Just spare me from the NFL guys doing whatever it is that looks like drunken birds with lordosis trying to cross a busy highway.

 

For those reasons, I agree with Oates that McClellan did the right thing in reining him in after the 4th goal.

I do agree with you and Oates in those respects. Especially re: McLellan's decision to sit Hertl, which, like I said before (I think it was the GDT), was a smart move.

 

But, at the same time, I feel Oates comes off as a grumpy old geezer. (As opposed to a young geezer, or a middle-aged geezer.) I mean...respect the league? OK, y'know what? I get that. Really, I do. I can understand and respect where he's coming from there. ...But, like so many others, I feel like getting scored on nine times in one game - and only mustering two for your own cause - is a bigger "insult" to the league and to hockey in general (not to mention certain fans), as Team Defense is The Name of the Game, and Lundqvist is supposed to be The Greatest Goalie of Our Generation, and stuff. I'm not trying to be snarky or anything. I just think if you're a coach, and you see nine goals against, even if it's another team, you're supposed to feel nauseated.

I do not recall anything special about his celebration. Given that he scored 4 goals in one game it was rather tame.

 

And Oates got OV on his team who likes to jump into the glass after his goals.

If Hertl were Canadian, Cherry wouldn't even have commented on that goal.  His xenophobia gets viewers, I suppose, but CBC should be done with Don Cherry.  He's basically the Bill O'Reilly of hockey at this point.

You know what I really like about the guy? He goes to the net.

 

Look at his goals - all are scored from the crease area (except for maybe one? Can't quite remember.)

 

Of course, it helps that he's big. But still.

Yeah, I wish we had more big bodies who would Hertl themselves towards the net.
