Philly gets blown out by the Caps, an all out brawl ensues. 

 

Emery skates the length of the ice to fight Holtby, who wants no part of him.  The ref stands and watches as Emery throws haymakers at the back of Holtby's head.  Unbelievable. 

 

Emery is a nutjob and a disgrace.  After the game he admitted that Holtby didn't want to fight him.  Emery said he told him to protect himself, and that Holtby didn't have a choice.

 

 

Downie left the game on a stretcher with a concussion from the fight.  Lecavalier left the game with a facial injury from his fight.

 

Just when you thought Philly couldn't be more of a joke right now.

Why in the hell did no Washington player help out Holtby, the hell what the ref wanted.

What a joke.  Flyers get embarrassed on the ice, try to goon it up, and now they're down two players.

To make it even more pathetic, the Flyers press named Emery the 3rd star of the game. 

 

He had a .733 Save %, so they sure weren't giving it to him for his goaltending.

So sick of these type of fights, the Flyers not only embarrassed themselves with their play put twice so with their classlessness. These fights along with fights after clean hits have no place in the game. There has to be a legitimate reason for a fight, other wise it makes you look like a bunch of pu**ies. And what's with the refs not stepping in during Emrey's fight he just kept teeing off on the back to Holtby's head, that could have been really dangerous. I guess it was the NHL'S version of bum fights.

Absolute joke. It's one thing when the goalies have a mutual agreement to have a go, but straight up goonery to skate the length of the flipping ice to pound a guy who wants no part of it.

Stay classy, Philly.

Like I said in the GDT...

 

I have a real problem with what Emery did (guy who knows how to fight wailing on a guy who doesn't know how to fight and doesn't want to fight). Also, Holmgren looked like he was crying in the presser. I wonder if his seat is getting just a wee bit warmer. Certainly the fans here in Eastern PA are thoroughly disgusted with the way things are going.

 

I say we should trade for Giroux.

I watched Emery's post game presser on the Flyers site to make sure I heard him correctly.  When asked about Holtby he says:

"He didn't want to fight and I said basically 'protect yourself' or whatever, ya know.  He didn't really have much of a choice."

To make it even more interesting, apparently Holmgren went down to talk to the team between periods.  Not too far into the 3rd period, all hell breaks loose.

Hey Shanny how about a suspension for Emery, what a tool.

Wasn't Miller an unwillling participant in his "fight" with Bernier?

 

I hope this doesn't become a thing.

They can't ban Emery for fighting. The Don Cherrys in the media who are fanatically pro-fighting would lose their minds. FYI, I want to keep fighting in the game, but this was a couple steps below assault (in a legal sense). 

 

Karma got the Flyers though. That punk Downie ate a great punch and hopefully Cashgrabvalier is out too.

It still would be nice to have that one guy.

Good time to give that whole punish-the-coaches-and-managers idea thing a whirl?

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo stupid.  Wanna know the best way to get fighting out of the game?  Make sure every fight is pointless (Orr vs. Parros) or barbaric (Emery vs. Holtby).  Not a single fight in this very short NHL season has been necessary. 

 

As a matter of fact, wanna know what fight would have been necessary?  The one where some Washington goon went out to protect his goalie who was getting pummeled by Ray Emery and didn't want to fight.  What's that?  Such a fight never happened?  I rest my case.


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."

I'm all for fighting and everything was fine at first IMO. But once holtby was down it shoukdve been done. Emery continued to hit the back of his head and the ref didn't help. Imo the ref and emery should get suspensions.


Also in the next game I fully expect emery to be ready to handle a little bit better of a fighter next time. He def. Went to far and should be dealt with accordingly.

So your only is problem is that Holtby got beat up TOO BAD?  You don't think it's a little silly that he had to fight at all, considering he didn't start anything, nothing illegal happened, and he didn't want to do it in the first place?

 

Why should Holtby get punched, even one time, because Philadelphia can't play defense?  They should let Emery punch the Philly defense, and if that doesn't work then punch Berube...and then Holmgren. 

 

This is stupid.

I could see if 1, or 2 Flyers wanting to mix it up (of course getting consent with a few Caps to see if there's any willing combatants), but a full line brawl was a bit over the top - especially with Emery going after Holtby (just when he got his image/career in the NHL back in order with the Blackhawks - he craps the bed with the Flyers).
