Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

that gif is disturbing


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I can't decide if that's clever or just plain creepy...

Aw s***!  That was the baddest fight I'd ever seen until Dallas Eakins and Taylor Hall had their tussle.  Talk about no-holds barred, did you see Eakins throw that towel at Hall?  Oh no you didn't!

 

While that was a doozy, I would have to argue that the Cleary one was worse. I mean, come on! Has anyone seen Cleary since? Does Cleary's knee injury mean that Babs has him caught in a bear trap somewhere? We as a fan base should demand answers. What has that evil doer Babcock done to our beloved Cleary?

It will be nice to have him in there against Columbus. Those f***ers take liberties like they're thef****** 70's Flyers. Be nice to throw a bit back at them, and win the game because they've had our number the last little while.

Creepy I'd definitely go with creepy...

 

And yet I can't stop watching... It'sf****** mesmerizing. It would be a great tool for hypnotists.

I completely disagree with this.  Columbus plays a reasonably physical game, much like the Preds and Coyotes the last couple of years, but they don't "take liberties".  They're middle of the road in penalty minutes, fights, a major penalties, and very low on the list of misconducts and game misconducts. 

 

Hell their penalty minutes leader is Brandon Dubinsky...not exactly a notoriously dirty player.

 

So unless there's some sort of league wide conspiracy to help out the B.J.'s (not even sure the league knows there's a team in Columbus), they're certainly not being called for any of the "liberties" they take. 

 

Edit:  And speaking of taking liberties, anybody catch Milan Lucic's little temper tantrum after Alexei Emelin dared deliver a legal hipcheck?  Apparently you're required to either A) fight everytime you play the Bruins, or B) Play like Cinderella.  What a bawl baby.

It's the disturbing trend that has plagued and continues to bring down the game in my eyes. A guy throws a completely legal, perfectly timed hit that looks really bad because either the receiving player A) wasn't expecting it or B) has his head down or C) just got completely smoked because the hit was that good. 

 

Then everyone on the other side feels like they need to go beat up the guy who threw the legal check because they don't like the fact that their teammate is incompetent and got shown up. Makes me sick. That was a terrific hit by Emelin and it's a shame we don't see more like that. At least the officials shoved Chara in the box after he decided he wanted a piece of Emelin.

I completely agree.  Here's Lucic's comments following the game.  What a complete ******, he even so much as admits it was a clean hit.  Guy sounds like a child.  I had an older brother who used to play the "you scared?" and "Chicken!" game...when we 8 and 10 years old.

 

"Whether it's fair, legal or whatever you want to call it, if he wasn't scared, he would stand up and hit me and not go after my knees," Lucic said. "It just shows how big of a chicken he is that he needs to go down like that to take me down. It shows what kind of player he is, and on my end, you know you've got to keep your guard up at all times."


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.

As I slowly lose respect for Lucic, I have to imagine that these comments were made in account of the animosity between Boston and Montreal made all the more bitter by the fact that they just ended their 12 game winning streak. But yea, sounds pretty stupid saying that. It was a clean hit, accept the fact that you got smoked.

I've always respected the fact that Lucic played hard, but he's clearly one of the dumbest players in the league.  I definitely lost a little love for the guy after this.  Plus, I think the culture surrounding the Bruins doesn't help.  They're like Philly, right there on the border between playing physical (which is fine) and gooning it up because that's "Bruins/Flyers" hockey. 

 

Edit:  Here's how you take a legal hip check like a man.  Good on PK.

I'd love to have lucic on this team or another guy of his style. The lack of fighting is my major problem with babcocks style. It's certainly a change for some of the younger guys as Grand Rapids is certainly a tougher team
Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

Same, I definitely admire his style of play and makes me pine for the days when Shanny was around. We could use some more guys like that. 

 

That video of PK is awesome. He's such a great role model and character, wonder what will happen when his deal is up at the end of the year (RFA).

Seriously?!? Pk is one of the biggest babies in hockey, takes terrible penalties, and is very very easily rattled. He may be talented, but a role model? Having character? That's not pk you're talking about

Ok, I know that I brought this up and so it's on me.  And I definitely don't want to cut your views short.  But let's not make this about Subban, we had enough of it during the Olympics.  I'm sorry I brought it up, I just liked the way he responded after taking a hard hit. 

 

My bad.  Can we go back to Callahan now?

Fair enough, point taken. The video may have slightly blurred my views…..my bad.

 

Back to Callahan - hoping that with limited ice time he'll make an impact tonight.
